Peace Cereal wins...

Peace Cereal may not be a household name the way that General Mills is, but it should be. Not only do they donate 10% of their profits to peace charities, but their organic cereals contain healthy, whole ingredients, such as "organic milled whole wheat," which is the first ingredient on this box's list. Thanks to these whole grains, this cereal will satisfy you with 10 grams of fiber and 8 grams of protein! You'll find this box in the natural foods section of your supermarket. Don't let General Mills' "whole grains" symbols fool you. That doesn't mean less processed; it just means that all parts of a grain are there somewhere but not necessarily in one piece. Their first ingredient is "corn meal," and this fruit & nut concoction doesn't pack the healthy fiber and protein that you'd expect by looking at the box--3 grams fiber and 4 grams protein. Don't make your cereal choices by looking at the front of the box alone, because this can be misleading. Always read the nutrition facts and the ingredients, which are listed in descending order.
