Health Food Imposter #3: Raisin Bran

This is another cereal that sounds good for you, but don’t let the word ‘bran’ in Raisin Bran fool you. One serving of this cereal packs in 19 grams of sugar per serving (in comparison, a half cup of vanilla ice cream has only 15 grams), says Freuman. And while some of that sugar comes naturally from the raisins, acknowledges Freuman, your body can't tell the difference.

The Better Pick: Freuman recommends making your own, higher-fiber, lower-sugar version instead: Start with a plain bran cereal (she likes Post Bran Flakes or Kellogg's All Bran Wheat Flakes) and then add in some fresh fruit, like berries, for a low-sugar, fiber-filled healthy breakfast.
