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!


  1. I went grocery shopping yesterday and bought many of the items on this blog. I ended up eating 3 bowls of Honey Crisp Medley cereal with Vanilla Silk! YUM!

  2. The cereal with Vanilla Soy milk is addictive. I've had 4 bowls today! Let me know how it works out when you try other recipes. Send me your address and I will send you the "Solo Meal Starter Kit".

  3. Yeah, definitely going to need to get more...I've eaten a whole box in 2 days.
