    I take cereal to work a lot because it's easy and quick. Since D i've been more cautious of which kinds i eat. I found this Kashi U it's called.

    I love cereal but only have it once, maybe twice a wk now. Suprisingly enough Honey Nut Cheereios is only 22g with 9g of sugar, 2g of fiber & 2g of protien. On the otherhand, Kashi Go Lean (original) is 30g but has 6g of sugar, 10g of fiber & 13g of protein. I usually go for the Cheerios, some fresh fruit & a cup of tea of since I am limited to 45g per meal.
