Don't have time to make yourself oatmeal or a high-fiber cereal this morning? Grab a breakfast bar instead. But beware: Most bars have too much sugar and not enough fiber. My favorites are the All-Bran bars (130 calories, 5 grams fiber) and Kashi Go Lean Roll! bars (190 calories, 6 grams fiber).
You can also check out the energy bar shelf and pick up an Odwalla bar with at least 4 grams of fiber (such as Superfood or Cranberry C Monster).
Keep these bars around in case there's no time for breakfast, or as an emergency meal at the office. But don't make eating them a habit - they're not nutritionally balanced enough to constitute a breakfast.
Guidelines for Breakfast Bars
They must have at least 4 grams of fiber per bar.
They shouldn't contain more than 1 gram of saturated fat or 5 grams of sugar per 100 calories. (Note: If fruit is the major ingredient, sugar content can be higher.)
Preferably, they're made with whole wheat, oats, or other whole grains.
