Me & cereal need a break
Over the weekend, I reluctantly bought a box of Quaker Oatmeal Squares, which I have declared to be the best and most addictive cereal ever. I have literally had at least a small cup of this cereal every night since I bought it and after having it for breakfast this morning, I’ve found that the box is almost empty!!
After a lot of thinking, I’m ready to take a break from cereal. It’s sort of like the same problem I had with ice cream…if it is in the house, I’m going to eat it at some point, whether I want it or need it. It’s not that I think cereal is bad, it’s great if you get a good brand, I just know that I don’t really need it and it’s obvious that I have a problem controlling myself when it is around.
Another reason is that when I have had it for breakfast, it doesn’t keep me full as well as other breakfast items do. After my post last Sunday about oat bran, I think I should mention that oat bran has been the most satisfying and filling breakfast as of late. It’s just sometimes hard to eat such a warm and heavy breakfast on really warm days. But our weather has been unseasonably mild the past couple of weeks so that hasn’t been a problem.
So, sorry cereal, but you and me? We’re on a break…just like Ross & Rachel! I honestly don’t think I can even finish was little is left in the box. Maybe I can get Josh to try it? 😉
However, I think I am creating a new monster?! Nah.
