Quaker Oats!
Quaker Oats:  100% Whole Grain!

Quaker Oats Nutrition Info

Daily Tidbit:  So Quaker Oats supplies the Oatmeal I eat nearly every morning.  I buy the huge box at Sam's Club for $7 or so, and then I have breakfast for the next 113 days!  It is incredibly affordable (consider how many days you get out of one regular box of cereal!), but of course it is also extremely good for me and yummy, especially when I add fruit, nuts & cinnamon!

4 grams of Fiber, 5 grams of Protein, NO Sodium, & only 1 gram of (naturally occurring) Sugar!
