6 Store-Bought Breakfast Foods That Will Revolutionize Your Morning
Stonyfield Organic Plain & Simple Petite Crème
Greek yogurt meets its match: this silky-sweet fresh cheese has just as much protein but none of the tang or chalky texture. Eaten like yogurt, each container has a whopping 12 grams of protein and just 5 grams of sugar.
To buy: $1.90 for one 5.3-ounce container, grocery stores.
Cheerios + Ancient Grains
The classic kids’ cereal just grew up. Its new bedfellows include oat and quinoa clusters, puffed spelt, and puffed Kamut—filling grains you can feel comfortable feeding your children, and eating yourself.
To buy: $4.40 for one 11.6-ounce container, grocery stores and at amazon.com.
Health Warrior Bar
On those mornings when there’s no time for a warm sit down breakfast, these two-bite snacks will tide you over. Chia seeds, organic cashew butter, rolled oats, dried cherries, and organic dark chocolate pack a powerful punch.

To buy: $3.50 for one 6-ounce package, Whole Foods.
Smoked Salmon Sampler
Special occasions (ladies bruncheon, anyone?) warrant special treats. There’s no topping this Omega-3-rich array: half a pound each of Irish salmon, Scottish salmon, Nova salmon, and gravlax; homemade scallion cream cheese; capers; lemons; and a loaf of pumpernickel bread.
