I love cereal. Ok, that’s a lie. What I meant to say was I LOVE cereal!!! Yes, I am one of those people who could eat bowls of cold cereal and milk every day of her life and still not be sick of it.
So, for this week’s edition of WIAW (courtesy of the fabulous Jenn), I thought I would focus on something I ate a lot this past week…cereal.
See for me, this love affair started decades ago, when my parents would buy boxes and boxes of the following…
Do you see a trend here? Sugar, marshmallows, sugars. Mention either of the above cereals, and I am immediately reminded of my childhood.
I no longer buy Count Chocula or Lucky Charms for myself. However, if it just happens to be around, I may have a bowl or two…just sayin’!
Over the years, my tastes have changed a bit. I am still obsessed, but my natural tendency is to pick up a box of this…
Oh yes! Good ole’ Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds. To be honest, I still occasionally eat a bowl of two of this for lunch or dinner. It has the perfect balance of crunchy clusters, sweet flakes, and toasted almonds. LOVE!
And every now and then, I allow myself to pick up a box of this stuff, knowing it will probably disappear in a few days…
This is probably my all time favorite cereal. Seriously, if you haven’t tried it yet, please do! It’s
a-mazing! In my opinion, a bowl of this tastes kind of like fresh baked banana bread. However, it’s a little addicting, and I have absolutely zero willpower around this stuff, so I resist buying it but every few months. Yes, it’s that good!
You may think that this post doesn’t count for WIAW, but trust me, when you’ve had a week like mine, cereal is your go to food – simple, easy, and balanced. I definitely had my far share of the stuff this week, so in my book it most definitely counts.
I hope y’all have a great night! Oh and be on the lookout tomorrow morning for my guest post on Alexa’s blog!!!
What was your favorite cereal growing up? What about now?
