It's hard not to like Galaxy Granola—before baking, the oats are coated with pureed fruit (like applesauce) instead of oil, so there are just two grams of fat in each crunchy serving. Pour over protein-packed yogurt and top with banana slices for extra fiber. ($5.50; GalaxyGranola.com)
Sometimes we crave cereal that reminds us of childhood—and it's a surprisingly good choice when it's low in sugar like these organic, gluten-free Amazon Frosted Flakes from EnviroKidz. The sweetness complements tangy, high-protein goat's milk, and blueberries and walnuts add antioxidants and healthy fats. ($4; NaturesPath.com)
The new Kashi GoLean Crisp! combines lots of satiating protein and fiber—a serving provides a third of your daily fiber needs, nine grams of protein, and 18 grams of whole grains. It's also a good choice if you'd like to use a low-protein dairy substitute, like rice milk—the cereal packs enough nutritional punch on its own. Add any fruit you have on hand, like strawberries. ($4; grocery stores)
