I have an egg (extra large or large) and toast (light rye thick sliced). Coffee with some milk. When I eat out for breakfast, I have bacon or back bacon or maybe sausages..depending on where I eat.
I would never have a cereal bar...for breakfast or any other time. Lots of sugar, some artificial sweetener, high fat. NO nutrition except for the fibre...which you can get in other ways.
I see cereal bars as an easy replacement to seeking a better way to eat.
An egg for protein, toast for carbs...both for energy. Oh, coffee to help my morning bm and for energy/clarity/addiction..lol!
I can go 7 hours on that breakfast if I had to.
