My blogger friend Laura at Mommy Run Fast is hosting a sugar detox challenge next week. Challening people to give up added sugars for a week. Read her excellent posts: Reasons to Give up Sugar and Tips for Overcoming Sugar Cravings. I think that sugar has a place in a healthy diet. I do think… more

Kids don’t listen to lectures. Maybe someday when they’re older, they’ll hear your words coming out of their mouth and be shocked. But, they’re really good at tuning out a lecture. The thing I find most effective in getting my kids to learn life lessons is to be a good role model. … more

This past weekend, I went to a birthday gathering for one of my very best friends. She asked us each to bring an appetizer to share for the crowd of about 15 people. What do you bring? I had a really hard time deciding on something and settled on a sweet treat type dish that… more

Why do I buy this? (source) I know why, but I also question why. One of my favorite afternoon snacks is a bowl of cereal.

I know why, but I also question why. One of my favorite afternoon snacks is a bowl of cereal. I like to combine a small serving of something healthy with a small serving of something sugary. It’s a little afternoon small indulgence, treat for the day (really, remember that 80/20 rule?).
Lately, my healthy cereal choice is Cinnamon Puffins.
For a long time, my sugary cereal of choice was Chocolate Cheerios.
I always have my cereal with Almond Breeze. I love almond milk in cereal.
But, back to my original question – Cinnamon Toast Crunch is like the cereal version of crack. I’m serious. I love the stuff, I could eat the whole box in one sitting.
So, why did I buy it? A momentary lapse of good judgement while grocery shopping? Probably. I have to report that I’ve made it last. While I haven’t been totally on the ball about serving sizes with this stuff, I have found myself having an extra little handful after serving up my snack. But, there’s still a good amount of cereal in the box in the cabinet, so I’m not going crazy.
But, it’s going to be a while before I buy this again.
Besides – it gets soggy so stinking quickly. Almost not worth it.
Do you love cereal? Is there a food you know you shouldn’t keep in your house?
