Super Cereal is one of my favorite go-to's in the morning and when I need to refuel later in the day or evening. This is a perfect example of "inclusion" verses "exclusion" when it comes to healthy eating. Include healthful nuts, seeds, dried or fresh fruit, nuts and even dark chocolate to modest portions of low-glycemic, whole-grain cereal such as: oats, bran flakes, shredded wheat or Cheerios.
Adding these foods can indeed increase calories, so you don't want to go overboard with the portions (unless you're looking to add calories). The benefit of adding these items is that they add nutrients, protein and healthy fat which nourish our bodies and help keep us fuller for longer- hopefully resulting in less overall calorie intake throughout the day if you're trying to lose weight.
