None of them are necessarily bad. It's individual how intolerant you may be and or what else you do that might repair the harm. And how they are prepared.
Soaking, fermenting and sprouting reduce the harm and improve nutrition in seeds. Fermenting also reduces the 'bad' in dairy. Dairy is also less 'bad' if it comes from pastured animals and is pasteurized.
No, Cheerios with added artificial nutrients are not good and neither is anything else on that aisle of the supermarket.
But rules of thumb, don't eat refined grains all day as in the bread and cereal you asked about. And limit dairy and don't drink milk.
Vegetables that aren't good would be whatever you are intolerant to.
Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.
[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.
Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.
Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!
