I love hot cereal and there are so many options to try that are both healthy and more apt to keep you from getting bored. There is whole-grain wheat or rice farina, steel cut oats, oat bran, quinoa, whole-wheat cous cous, buckwheat, barley, and even a lot of multigrain cereals. The brand Bob's Red Mill makes a lot of tasty ones. You can change up what you mix into them, adding different kinds of fruit or nuts, and trade butter/margarine for nut butters. One of my favourites these days, is steelcut oats, prepared in my rice/veggie steamer. I add almond milk, raisins, chunky PB, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground flax and chia seed. All the ingredients are healthy (most of them organic) and I am full for hours afterward. It's definitely happy belly food.
