Comments: Heather N. the Cereal Killer

I knew there was a reason I'm addicted to Raisin Bran.

I love Raisin Bran, and I have always preferred Post over Kellogg's (go figure). Yeah for FIBER!!!

Personally, I think any cereal that is composed mostly of air is designed to fill you up on water in the milk, not actual food.


Kellogg's Dietary Fiber:
All-Bran® with Extra Fiber™ 13.0 g per 1/2 cup (26g)
Bran Buds® 13.0 g per 1/3 cup (30g)
All Bran® 10.0 g per 1/2 cup (31g)
Two Scoops® Raisin Bran 8.0 g per 1 cup (61g)
Cracklin' Oat Bran® 6.0 g per 3/4 cup (49g)
Frosted Mini-Wheats® Bite Size 6.0 g per 1 cup (49g)

I prefer General Mills' Fiber One. 14 grams of fiber per half cup serving, and it tastes good, too (at least I think so). Half a cup in the morning, half a cup as a late-night snack and I'm covered.

As for whole wheat pasta, you can keep it. You like the texture but to me it has the texture of grossly undercooked pasta no matter how long I cook it.

Mike has not mastered al dente, I see. I don't like the sloppy pasta served in non-Italian restaurants - often WAY overcooked.

I'm a toothy gal.

As for the pure bran stuff, I should give that a shot with some added dates. I always add raspberries, blackberries, or blueberries (often two of the three) and eschew the milk (long story - used to love milk).

Heh...anyone else remember the "Colon Blow" commercial on SNL, featuring Phil Hartman? Classic.

Heather, I'm pretty sure the entire Kashi line is pretty high in fiber (7+ grams per serving).

I'm sooo glad you posted that about Special K!!!South Beach Diet recommends "Uncle Sam's Cereal", which has alot of flaxseed in it. just dont eat a big bowl or it might make you run for the bathroom at some point. lol. Also, Kashi has their GoLean Crunch.. 8 grams of fiber in it. I havent been able to find their Cinnamon-Raisin locally.

Heather, I cannot remember the name right now-it might be All Bran- but a 1/2 cup serving supplied around 13 grams of fiber. I used to eat a cup for breakfast. Trust me, it scrubs the intestinal walls like nobody's business. And it actually tastes okay, just a little bit chewy.

Whoops, I see someone has already mentioned it. Oh well.

We've been rediscovering hot cereals too, though I just checked my Quaker Oats box, and 1/2 (dry) has only 4 grams of fiber. I usually add raisins or other fruit, so that ups the fiber considerably. And it's filling. Special K is so fluffy that I then look around for the main course after eating it.
