Best High-Protein Cereal

Because cereals are made with grains, they typically contain little protein. But when Kashi came on the scene in 1984 they changed all that. Their original Go Lean Crunchy Fiber Twigs cereal contains a whopping 13g of protein per serving from added soy. With its fiber and protein content, Go Lean is sure to keep you going all morning long. (We let the whole grains slide because of the high fiber and protein content.)

Cereal Stats: Whole Grain: 8g, Sugar: 8g, Protein: 13g, Fiber: 10g

Runner up: Another cereal from Kashi, Go Lean Crunch is our next choice with 9g protein and a crunchy, sweet flavor.
