I promise, nothing about these cereals is deep fried so you're good. I think after 12 days of the great mn get together, we all need a dose of something healthy, and they say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. That being said here's a list of the top 3 healthiest cereals on the market.

Living Intentions Cacao Crunch SuperFood Cereal
Long name I know but loaded with benefits. The ingredients list boasts superfoods like maca root that you won’t find in other cereals
This cereal is as minimally processed as breakfast can get. A ½-cup serving contains 200 calories and offers a cacao superfood blend with ingredients you won’t find in leading cereal brands, including maca root. According to The Huffington Post, maca root is a superfood known to increase endurance and energy. This cereal also boasts an herb called astragalus, which WebMD says can boost your immune system. Since this breakfast option is also free of nuts, gluten, and animal products, it’s also a great option if you have any dietary restrictions. Plus, it comes in three additional flavors that are just as healthy.
Back to Nature Sprout & Shine
A great option with only 2 grams of sugar per serving with all the benefits of sprouted whole-grain brown rice. This gluten-free option is another cereal made with a few quality ingredients, including sprouted whole-grain brown rice. The sprouted brown rice is particularly good because your body may be more able to absorb the nutrients, per Livestrong. The grain may even help regulate blood sugar levels. For every 120-calorie serving, you’ll also get 1.5 grams of fat (all of which are unsaturated), 24 grams of carbs, 2 grams of fiber, and 3 grams of protein. Not to mention there are only 2 grams of sugar per serving. Consider sprinkling a little cinnamon on top for a flavor boost.
Back to the Roots California Whole-Wheat Flakes
This wholesome cereal is made with just three ingredients. If you opt for cereal flakes in the morning, make it Back to the Roots’ California Whole-Wheat cereal. A 1-cup serving offers 160 calories, 36 grams of carbs, 5 grams of fiber, 6 grams of protein, and just 5 grams of sugar, making it a wholesome choice for breakfast. It’s made with only three ingredients: 100% stone-ground whole wheat, organic cane sugar, and sea salt. What makes this cereal so healthy, in addition to the minimal ingredients list, is the milling process that preserves the wheat’s protein and fiber. This guarantees you get the most nutrients in each bite.
