You may think of couscous as dinner fare, but this version definitely belongs on your breakfast menu. “It tastes so fresh, thanks to dried cranberries and vanilla, and was a perfect cure for oatmeal monotony,” one tester said after trekking through Montana’s Bitterroot National Forest. Bonus: The pouch’s rounded corners allow for thorough mixing and ensure that you won’t waste a spoonful.

Ingredients

The couscous rehydrates in 15 minutes after adding boiling water, and with 16 grams of protein, it’s a nice jump-start to the day. The whole meal contains 380 calories and 78 grams of carbs—more than your typical packet of oats—but 36 grams of sugar is high.
