I like Back to Nature's Hi Protein Crunch cereal. It has 30g of protein per cup, which is pretty awesome. I also love Kashi's Strawberry Fields cereal.

You can also check this list. In the breakfast section it lists a bunch of vegan cereals. It's a pretty long list. I don't eat a lot of breakfast cereal, but aside from the honey issue and gelatin frosting/marshmallows, I'm having trouble figuring why breakfast cereal wouldn't be vegan.

You'd best be sidling up to the Kashi Autumn Wheat.



(But! If they have Barbara's Bakery Shredded Wheat, get that and put a little agave nectar or maple syrup over it, with pluot, apple and banana slices. OMFGSO00BRGUDZZZ--







Ahem. Yes.)

Hi! The less processed food is the more it appeals to me, I love muesli, either pre prepared or its so easy to chuck some together at home then at least you know whats in it, and you can optimize your nutrition by adding things that are more nutritious like sunflower seeds, dried apricots(look for black apricots, tastier and without the chemicals), raisins,nuts,etc,etc, a great and tasty way to boost iron and protein first thing in the day. You can eat it with your favourite soy milk. Also its worth looking into different grains I read recently that tritcale has a higher protien content than other grains so could be a useful addition to your muesli mix-I havn`t tried it yet.

When I was backpacking in the UK I was operating on a shoestring, and started my day with porridge, cooked very simply with water and salt. I developed quite a taste for it and to this day would not eat it any other way, filling,warming,mmmm!

Can`t help with the boxes of cereals, sounds daunting, My kids get so annoyed at me because I`m always reading labels on processed foods am rarely impressed and usually make them put it back, most of it I`d consider snack food not a staple/energy/healthful option, I guess you just have to start reading (a different one each day? you`ll be done in a month?)until you wittle it down to any that suits you.

"Quaker Chewy Chocolate Chip Granola Bar"



... nope. Sorry, PETA, but they have both honey and modified milk ingredients in them. :/ My sister has a box in the cupboard right now.



And I'm totally going to give Kashi another look... thanks for the info!

They're a great base cereal. I add other crap to them - fruit/nuts/mix them with other cereal (Barbara's Bakery Puffins = Best Ever).

Most of the traditional cereals at my grocery aren't vegan because they have vit D in them. I know someone mentioned regular cheerios, which I love, but at my store they have vit D (as do most of those on Peta's list).



I buy grape juice flavored flakes out of my bulk bins & add my own granola & nuts.

I'm pretty sure Cheerios are vegan.



I just did a quick check and they're on PETA's vegan shopping list:

Most of the cereals on Peta's list contain vit D as well. Peta also claims that their list is only about 95% vegan, they don't worry about the little things .



However, I just looked up the ingredients for cheerios on their website and vit D isn't listed anymore. I'll be If I can have cheerios again!!!

Okay, I got this response after emailing General Mills about my expierence on their 800# today:



Thank you for contacting General Mills with your inquiry.



First, we apologize for the experience you had with our 800 number. That is not the quality we expect from our representatives.



Second, the answer to your question of vitamins in our cereals is that they are all synthetically derived. There are no animal source ingredients in Cheerios.

Love my Raisin Bran. Safeway grocery stores in my area makes an Enriched Bran Flakes, that taste good with Flax seed meal. I sprinkle Flax seed meal on just about all my cereals, always adds good flavor to them.

I recently found out about all the vitamins that can be animal derived and have been contacting the various companies regarding their cereals. Not too happy with the replies. Let's just say I'm giving my mother all my cereal. Here are the replies I've received so far.



From Kelloggs:

We have recently came up with a new line of organic cereals. These include

Organic Raisin, Organic Mini-Wheats, and Organic Rice Krispies. Because of the sources of vitamins, the rest of the Kellogg cereals are not considered

vegetarian.



From Kraft (Post cereal)

All of the vitamins and minerals in Cereals are derived from chemicals except Vitamin D.



There are two sources of vitamin D: vitamin D3 and vitamin D2.

Vitamin D3 is synthesized from cholesterol, a substance derived from animals.

Vitamin D2 is derived from plants.



Our cereals are fortified with vitamin D3, a vitamin synthesized from animals.



Shredded Wheat products are not vitamin D fortified so the above information does not apply.



From General Mills

Thank you for contacting us. Vitamins A and D are derived from an animal ingredient in both products. (I'd asked about Cheerios and Chex)



I haven't checked with Quaker yet. I thought Kashi was veggie, but I'm gonna double check with them.
