    Depends what brand you buy you can get reduced salt / sugar bran flakes. That said, i don't know how Kelloggs get away with the amounts they shove in theirs.

    At the moment, i'm fluctuating between Weetabix, Frosties, Kellogs Oats and Honey, and Mini Weetabix with Honey and Nut.
    In answer to your question, none. I don't like either of them :)
    It takes as much courage to have tried and failed as it does to have tried and succeeded.

    +1, although lately I've been having Tesco Finest Fruit and Nut Muesli. More or less the same thing though.

    Failing that, bacon and egg butty :P

    Forgot to mention I put together my own muesli too, it's cheap and I get exactly what i want in it.

    Bran flakes and muesli with Muller Rice. I don't like the way Shredded Wheat falls to bits in the milk.

    Is that just oats and dried fruit? Sounds like a good idea.

    yeh you can buy a 'muesli base' too from places like Holland and Barrett but a decent health food shop should sort you out, it's a shop around for best prices job on the big bags of the stuff.

    After that pick your own dried fruits / nuts and either roughly chop the fruit up and mix in a big bowl and pour into one of those Tupperware breakfast containers. I put dried banana, date, mango, raisins, sultanas, the odd pine nut and some pumpkin seeds in usually but whatever you fancy. But again it's a case of shopping around for the dried stuff as places like H&B charge a premium price. Inner city markets is where I head for both and I buy in bulk. It's no great faff once you've sourced the stuff at a reasonable price, and does work out cheaper if you're shrewd but can work the other way if not. The beauty is...

    No salt , no sugar apart from the sweetness of the dried fruit (which is more than enough). And you get exactly what you want in it. Tasting Alpen after is like eating a mars bar and you realise how much salt and sugar manufacturers do put in cereal, even though things are changing now. I can't eat Alpen these days it's too sweet.

    brunchtime and after is the meal times I have trouble with - but I do like a good start to the day. lmao
  • As someone who's having to cut as much wheat out as possible, I tend to alternate at the moment each day

    Oatibix bites & the bites with sultana & apple pieces. Thinking of trying the cranberry one too when I finish one of these boxes. I like the texture of these, tried the flakes &they were rank.

    Prefer Shreddies.

    Shredded Wheat tastes and feels like hay with strips of cardboard in it.

    In a 45g serving of nestle shreded wheat there is 0.0g of salt fact!
    But i'll eat any cereal that does'nt contain sultanas or raisins.
