There's a bunch of new frozen breakfasts to choose from, all with great stats. In addition to the three turkey-sausage options, there's a meatless Three Cheese Omelet with a side of hash browns. The waffles and pancakes even include sides of syrup. Perfect. Nice work, WW!

Cedarlane All Natural Garden Vegetable & Mozzarella and Broccoli Cheddar Egg White Omelettes
This company makes one of my all-time favorite frozen breakfasts (the Green Chile, Cheese & Ranchero Sauce Egg White Omelette), and I always have room in my freezer for more Cedarlane deliciousness. My latest finds? Two new egg-white omelettes:
Garden Vegetable & Mozzarella and Broccoli Cheddar — perfect for people who like their morning meals on the mild side.

Van's Natural Foods 8 Whole Grains English Muffins, 8 Whole Grains Multigrain Pancakes, and Power Grains Waffles
Van's has a whole slew of new frozen stuff to make your mornings easier, and I'm all about having lots of quick options. The Power Grains Waffles are especially impressive, with a whopping 10g protein per serving, and they're made with good-for-you stuff like steel-cut oats and brown rice. Nice!

Heart-shaped cereal with rockin' stats? Yay! It tastes great, too: a little oaty and slightly sweet, with a hint of toasty flavor. And again — this cereal is shaped like little hearts! SO CUTE!
