I love cereal
|May 18, 2011||Posted by Carrie under comfort food, food, recipes|
Really, I do. So, nutritionally it’s not the greatest, but at least I’m not addicted to the super sugary stuff. My favorites at the moment are Kix and Cinnamon Life.
I’ve got a little bit of a love-hate thing with cereal. It’s probably never ever a meal, it’s a snack food in my book. It also becomes the thing that I eat too much of. I’d like to say that I always eat an appropriate serving size. But I don’t. Maybe that’s why I tend to want to eat Kix more than any other. I know that a serving size is a full cup and that’s it’s got reasonable nutritional stats.
I also love Fiber One. I really love to mix it into a cup of Chobani yogurt. It’s almost as good as Yogurtland :-) and many of you know how much I love Yogurtland. I’ve actually tried a few sugary cereals in my yogurt, but I really can’t taste the difference, so I’ll stick with the low-calorie, fiber loaded Fiber One and call it a healthy snack.
Yesterday, I had a snack of Special K Berries. YUM!! I was on a Chocolate Cheerios kick for a while, too.
The downside is that cereal is super easy to go overboard on. I really really try to serve a portion and walk away. But, there are the times that I grab the whole box. Damn. Sometimes I think maybe I shouldn’t keep so many cereal options in the house, but then again, I love cereal – so it’s not going anywhere.
In other cooking news, I made black beans from scratch the other day. No one else in my house will eat them, but I wanted to try. I soaked them overnight and then simmered them for 2 hours. I then made this yummy dinner.
It was filling at the time. But, I was hungry a few hours later so I had a yogurt with Fiber One. (I always dream about taking gorgeous pictures – but that’s just not going to happen, so you’ll have to bear with me)
Do you love cereal? What’s your favorite? Do you eat it as a snack or a meal?
