I tried the new protein Cheerios and they are very good.  A nice , economical alternative to JC cereals, but with more protein.  Just thought I'd share if anyone hasn't tried them. Of course you have to measure your portion!

I think serving size is 1 1/4 C... Too many calories for me! I like the multigrain Cheerios..

yes the serving is 1 1/4 cup!! I'd never buy one that serving was only 1/4 cup.  A cup is large enough serving for me and it has more protein and fiber than JC cereals

There are 110 calories in a 1 cup serving with 2 gr protein, 3 gr fiber and 1 gr fat. Really tasty..a bit sweetened..I like to eat them dry..one or two at a time! Then I'll have my Greek yogurt and fruit. Makes a good breakfast..

Have you tried PB2?  Regular peanut butter has 190 calories per 2 tbs and 16 grams of fat...PB2 has only 45 calories per 2 Tbs and 1.5 grams of fat.  So you could have 2 Tbs of peanut butter for a lot less calories and fat!  (I mix mine with unsweetened almond milk instead of water ;) )
