Whole grain cereal cups
Why start your day with a donut when you can get wholesome whole grain cereal? You may need to dig through the cereal display
to find it, but it’s in there. Just be sure to read the label, as some varieties are more healthful than others. Look for
brands that supply at least 4 grams of fiber and about 160 calories per cup (Cheerios are a safe bet that are almost always
available). Mix with low-fat yogurt and a banana and you’ve got a wholesome breakfast you can take along for the drive.
