    Kellogs definitely not because rich in sugar, what about no sugar muesli?

    would oatmeal (instant or regular) be considered a "breakfast cereal"?

    If you make your own muesli then it can be very healthy, as muesli is really just uncooked oatmeal, some nuts, and dried fruit, and if you put some greek-style yogurt and skim milk on there you're good to go! If you replace dried fruit (lots of sugar) with fresh fruit, even better!

    this is good what Bunjamon said. ^

    Steel cut oats with some cinnamon and Pure Stevia... and a little bit of reg milk or unsweetened almond milk. Or reg oatmeal is good too.

    There are some totally obvious ones to avoid:
    Lucky Charms - mostly sugar, except for the artificial color and high-fructose corn syrup;
    Captain Crunch - the little squares have edges so sharp they make your gums bleed, adding an unappetizing pink tint to the milk in your bowl;
    Count Chocula - the name says it all;
    Froot Loops - an insult to gay people everywhere.

    Absolutely. I think Oatmeal is definitely one of the best, just be careful at some of the additives.... "Peaches & Cream" isn't one of my favorites...lol

    Glad Cocoa Pebbles weren't on your list.

    LOL...

    Seriously, any sugared cereals aren't the best to "start your day".
    I grew up on some sugared cereals and it can be hard to turn away.

    half cup of oatmeal
    1.5 cups of apple juice
    tablespoon of apple sauce
    several dashes of cinnamon and nutmeg
    capful of vanilla
    raisins
    walnuts

    cook.

    Let stand a few minutes

    Best if you mix the ingredients the night before. The oats will have time to soak then.

    Since you're in Switzerland, let me help you out. 1 Cup = 0.236588236485 Litre (L)

    Recipe:
    First take a highly nutritious grain, roll it, mill it, steam it, extract its wholemeal content and nutrients. Fire it through metal mesh, dry it, spray on flavour, additives, preservatives and the vitamins that were stripped at the first stage. Result- all boxed processed cereals. Sell to consumer at hugely inflated price.

    Don't buy processed cereals guys. Wholegrain porridge oats mixed with other seeds, nuts and fruit are best.

    Oatmeal, a little water (just enough to reach surface of the oats, gives it a thick consistency) and 1/2 or 1 cup of milk.
    + some protein powder or a couple eggs in it if it floats your boat (I like both, though not together :/)

    [Oh, and don't do instant, do regular. Instant saves, what 120seconds in the microwave? But it tastes (textures) 'bleh'. IMO.]

    Grape-Nuts + skim milk. You can add raisins and brown sugar for sweetness. Throw it in the microwave for 30 seconds. Better than oatmeal in my opinion.

    I eat Costco cereal, which is high in fiber (3/4) cup, with blueberries, flaxseed mill and unsweetened almond milk.

    pretty well rounded and tasty IMO

    Agree with all the guys saying oatmeal. Make mine w/ fat free milk and blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and/or bananas. Perfect breakfast.

    Oatmeal protein shake - chocolate flavour. Yum. Always soak oats for at least 8 hours. Degrades some of the antinutrients and makes it easier to digest.

    Or just skip breakfast if you don't feel like eating it. Leangains.com for more info on the whys and hows.

    same, i stopped eating them at a certain age because it felt retarded, but i still look at the boxes on the shelves ..

    but i don't eat cereal for breakfast, never. I like it at night.

    breakfast : low sodium cottage cheese, fruits (usually grapefruit, kiwi, pear ) and toast I drink only water and take some supplements .
    i eat again an hour later or so, and then at lunch time.
