It’s no secret—I love my cereal.
However, things haven’t always been this fine and dandy between the two of us. I actually used to be a cereal hater and had a hard time understanding why people loved it or how they could be satisfied by eating a bowl of little pieces of grain. For me, a “good breakfast” would’ve meant a filling slab of French toast or a big, fluffy pancake.
Slowly but surely, as I began to discover different toppings and varieties, cereal found it’s way into my heart Not that breakfast CANT mean any of those other delicious options, but a hearty bowl of cereal has become one of my favorite & most-loved staples.
I’ve had this box sitting in my pantry for the past few months, and it wasn’t until this morning when I noticed my empty Erewhon crispy brown rice stash that I decided to break it open.
I saw Whole O’s at Publix plenty of times before I finally decided to give in and make the purchase. Gluten-free Cheerio shaped cereal? Yes please.
Although it’s a pet peeve of mine when cereal servings are less than 1 cup in size. I mean, come on—who wants to have less than a CUP of cereal, let alone a few bowls-worth
I poured 1 cup (yeah, that’s right) into a bowl and noticed immediately that the Whole O’s looked & tasted very similar to their Cheerio-brothers.
I topped my bowl with blueberries, a sliced banana, Stevia, and some almond milk,
served it alongside some turkey bacon, per usual,
& a Christmas cup o’ joe.
Even at 5:00 AM, Popcorn was all dressed up & ready for breakfast..
but unlucky for him, he wasn’t on the guest list 8)
A bit to think about: Are you a cereal-for-breakfast lover or hater?
