When it comes to cereals, sometimes you don’t want something that’s completely loaded with sugar, especially after the age of 13. Whole Foods’ house brand, 365 Organic, makes a very good alternative to the processed stuff, as their Morning O’s, while a bit bland, are a good way to start the day, especially when mixed with some fresh fruit.
These little rings most closely resemble Cheerios, but the flavor and texture are a little different. These O’s are almost entirely weightless, and as they’re made from a combination of whole grain oat flour and rice flour, they taste almost like a cross between Cheerios and Rice Krispies. The only other ingredients are cane sugar, which is almost imperceptible (and adds only one gram of sugar per serving), a pinch of salt, Vitamin E, and calcium carbonate. They’re good on their own, but make a great neutral base for additions of fruit.
These little rings are very crunchy, light, and fills up the bowl without weighing you down. One 1-cup serving contains 120 calories, 1.5 grams of fat, 22 grams of carbohydrates, and 3 grams of dietary fiber.
