Cereal is for Snacking
In the previous blog, I recommended eating a good dinner for breakfast. Although I don't think cereal is appropriate for breakfast, at least not until some protein is eaten, I do consume mass quantities of the stuff. Honey Bunches of Oats or the store brand with Vanilla Silk (or store brand) is my ice cream. I will admit to having a hard time giving up my addiction to ice cream. My gall bladder put an end to that! The solution was a substitute addiction to Vanilla Soy Milk over a good mixed grain cereal. I first tried Silk because my Lady Friend is lactose intolerant. It was a lot better than I ever would have thought, and now I use it instead of milk. It lasts a whole lot longer in the fridge than milk and has lots of calcium and vitamins. It was the Vanilla product that hooked me. The only downside is that I have to buy regular silk for cooking. Even I can't tolerate vanilla in my mashed potatoes!
