Whole-grain wheat, rye, oats, triticale, barley, brown rice, oat bran, and flaxseed pack a punch of texture and 37g whole grains per serving. Add fresh figs if you have them on hand.
1/2 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
2 ounces goat cheese
1 tablespoon fig preserves
1 serving of prepared cereal (Bob's Red Mill 7 Grain Hot Cereal)
1/2 teaspoon grated orange rind
How to Make It
Place yogurt and goat cheese in a bowl; beat with a mixer at high speed for 2 minutes or until light and fluffy. Dollop 2 tablespoons yogurt mixture and fig preserves over prepared cereal. Top with grated orange rind.

This is a filling, delicious breakfast, and the flavors of the goat cheese and fig preserves really transform it into something beyond the same old bowl of oatmeal. That said, the recipe amounts are a bit confusing. (There's enough topping for 4 servings, but it only serves 1?) I find it's easiest to make 4 servings of cereal per instructions on the cereal packaging and save leftover cereal & topping in the fridge for another morning. (The cereal reheats just fine in the microwave.)
