You may have noticed that I eat a fair amount of oatmeal oatmeal oatmeal oatmeal oatmeal on this blog. (HA! That’s a ridiculous amount of oatmeal posts!) I eat even more in real life. When I’m not eating oatmeal, however, I tend to be eating cereal. Those are my breakfast staples. Sometimes they make repeat appearances for dinner, particularly when I’m uber-tired and have no good leftovers in the fridge.
The only cereal brand I eat anymore is Kashi. It’s not intentional, but… well, I like their cereals, and most are organic. All have respectable ingredient labels, and that’s all I need.
My favorites are the GoLean Honey Almond Flax (do I have to duck from flying objects hurled by the vegans that consider honey to be murder? I actually don’t eat honey, except when it’s in my Kashi cereal. I admit it. I’m not a purist, nor am I militant about my food choices… why do I instinctively start defending my choices here?) and the Cinnamon Harvest Whole Wheat Biscuits, followed closely by Heart to Heart Oat Flakes & Blueberry Clusters, and Good Friends Cinna-Raisin Crunch.
Atop my cereal goes vanilla soymilk or almond milk or occasionally coconut milk, and then I bury it all with fruit. Whenever possible, that includes 1 banana, 4 or 5 strawberries, a handful of blueberries, and a few raspberries. When I’m feeling frisky, I toss some raisins in there. I’ve been known to slice up a kiwi and layer it on there as well.
And that, my friends, is what happens when I’m not eating oatmeal.
