Bengali Breakfast Grains

Our Indian-inspired Bengali cereal isn't a run-of-the-mill morning nosh. Fennel, cardamom, cinnamon and blueberries bring the whole grain bulgur to life, while keeping the calorie count at 150.

Shakshuka

Take a morning trip to Israel with a traditional egg-based Shakshuka (eggs poached in tomato sauce). The jalapeno, paprika and cumin will wake you up fast, while the low calorie count and protein-packed punch help keep you trim.
