Weetabix® - Organic
I had this cereal at my Grandma's house as a child, but didn't know what it was called. And just recently a friend gave me a box to try. He said it was very popular in Canada. I loved it so much that I decided to get another box and when I was shopping realized that Barbara's Bakery was the company that brought back Britain's best selling cereal, Weetabix®. These unique oval biscuits are made of Organic Whole Wheat and lightly sweetened to allow their natural flavor to shine through.
There are three Weetabix® whole grain cereals made by Barbara's Bakery: Original Biscuits, for traditionalists, and new Crispy Flakes and Crispy Flakes & Fiber, for those who crave a bit more crunch. All are organic, packed with wholesome nutrition, and made without any artificial ingredients, hydrogenated oils or trans fats.
For less than 300 calories you can create a wholesome breakfast with Weetabix®:

Bob's Red Mill Organic Extra Thick Rolled Oats
Personally, I think Bob's Red Mill Organic Extra Thick Rolled Oats are the tastiest on the market. The flavor of these oats is better than any other product I've tested. There are several OAT versions at Bob's Red MIll: Instant Oats, Rolled Quick Cooking Oats, Rolled-Regular Old Fashioned, Rolled Thick Oats, and Steel-Cut Oats. Each version is excellent in taste and texture, so try them for yourself.
