Okay, so I won't lie. I'm getting kind of sick of Fiber One cereal. I have been eating it almost every morning for close to two years (have I mentioned that I'm a creature of routine?). The thought of eating Fiber One again this morning bothered me so much that I combined one serving of the cereal with half a serving of Cheerios. The result: not earth shattering delicious but just okay.

Now, as much as I'd love to experiment with new breakfast cereals and, perhaps even eventually adopt a brand new breakfast menu, I don't think any other brand out there matches the fiber content in one serving of Fiber One (14 grams in one serving and 28grams in my daily double serving! That's a minor miracle in the food sciences, as far as I'm concerned, folks!). MP happens to be a fan of the Kashi cereals, all varieties of which have way too much sugar and way not enough fiber, as far as I'm concerned. And, have you seen the image on the box of Good Friends? It features two random, old people: a lady who looks like she's just stepped off the set of an 80s sitcom and a Mexican/Native American dude who doesn't inspire me much to eat the cereal.

I get constipated by just looking at the box.

Anyway, any super high fiber (and delicious!) cereal alternatives to Fiber One would be much appreciated.

Taste, I realize should never be a parenthetical.

smart start cereal with vanilla yogurt....and 2 boiled eggs...

great breakfast...very filling and healthy.

Oh and with a cup of coffee

that's what I do every morning.

then i make sure i drink plenty of water during the day...

i don't eat after 8. if i'm hungry and haven't had dinner, i'll do cereal or the yogurt and smart start cereal mixture again at night


and there's my routine food. though lately i've been skipping eating all together.

Thanks Sasha. That's a healthy breakfast, indeed. I have two veggie bacons with my Fiber One cereal and fat free milk. I've been skipping the coffee of late, however. All that being said, and this post aside, I think I may just stick with Fiber One. I kind of craved it all day today and am back to being super excited for it tomorrow morning.

I'm a dork.

I know that this may push your culinary skills to a new level - but you ever thought of making your own granola?

It's way easy, inexpensive and the ingredients are only what you put into the mix.

here is one recipe:

'Great grains' by 'Post' with pecans and dates is my favorite.

For a healthier alternative, I sometimes make my own cereal: oatmeal with a sprinkling of wheat germ and ground up flax seeds, almonds, walnuts, banana, and a handful of whatever berry you have sitting around in the fridge! It's quite a meal.
