I eat cereal on my early morning shift before work. I eat spoon size shredded wheat. I have 9-12 almonds on the side and put berries in with cereal to balance it out.

I alternate between oatmeal (I love to add berries) and whole grain cheerios which aren't too bad as far as nutrition goes. I find that many of the cereals touting themselves as healthy are often loaded with calories, added fats, and don't taste all that good anyhow!

Most cereal is high in carbs and low in protein and fat. To remedy this, I often add ground flaxseed to cold cereal. Since you can't eat eggs, you might also consider adding some fruit and 1-2 tablespoons of nuts and seeds to your hot oatmeal. It's not only better balanced but much more satisfying (or, as one might say, satiating).

Raw oatmeal for me. I pour milk over it and put back in fridge for about 15 minutes.
The oatmeal soaks up the milk, ice cold mushy treat. No added sugar and no energy expended cooking it.

You cannot outrun the fork.
The journey never ends.
