    Default The Cereal with less than 1g of sugar - Uncle Sam's

    I didn't want it to get lost in the Boo Boo Pop Tart thread. It's available at Trader Joe's for $2.99 per box or $4 to $6 dollars at the supermarket. It tastes great, like a bran cereal. Since lactose intolerant me discovered Almond Milk I can finally have cold cereal again. I have a ton of fresh blueberries that I keep in the freezer. I don't let them thaw, I just pop them into the bowl. Like little baby frozen blueberry balls.

    Ooh good find. Great protein and fiber numbers too.

    Better than the bran flakes I usually get.

    I know, that's almost 3 servings of carbs, right?

    More than 1/4 of the carbs are dietary fiber, though, which is not absorbed by your body.

    I've never heard of wheat berry flakes. It sounds like the wheat version of rolled oats. Mrs. Mohandas and I used to boil wheat berry's and then eat them with skim milk and some honey. But it was still REALLY, REALLY chewy....

    Thanks Chalet I wish they would sell them here. I am having such a hard time finding things with no or little sugar.
    Maybe I could order them online.

    I know Keloggs are bad but today I looked at the label of special K granola (which looked quite good) , 17 gr/100gr of sugar.
    Not going to happen.

    Good find!

    I'm a fan of plain shredded wheat - the big biscuits. Of course, I add sugar to them (which is weird because I never add sugar to anything else), but even doing that it's a lot better than most packaged cereals.

    I prefer Foot Loops myself!

    Froot Loops and Apple Jacks, the best.

    Ever had Cracklin' Oat Bran. When it's been soaking in the milk for a few minutes? omigod. I can't.

    So yeah, that is a lot of carbs. Never noticed that. It's the cereal that was recommended by the South Beach diet many years ago. One bowl per week is what I'll usually have.

    Yes they do. I see it on the shelf and walk on by. The box has shrunk and it's about $6.00. Ya know, it could be called dessert.

    Oooohhh...I'm loving this thread. I haven't had a bowl of cereal in almost 7 years (had gastric bypass and for some reason this is something I just can't stomach). But I used to love cereal. Love love love it. Captain Crunch or Crunch Berries and Fruity Pebbles were my favorite sugary ones and Smart Start was my favorite "healthy" one. Honey Nut Chex was a good one too. God, I want a bowl of cereal so bad now!

    I'm in the same boat. I've had it twice in three years and had my head in the toilet within 10 minutes. It's technically a slider food so I'm guessing the sugars from the cereal and the milk is doing me in.
