055: I am grateful for cereal

I was in a huge panic this morning. I was out of cereal. Thankfully, after my job interview today, I had my wits about me enough to actually hit the grocery store and my beloved cereal aisle. I could hear my Mom’s voice telling me, “no junk cereal”, meaning the sugary sweet stuff I like to treat myself with now again. I looked around, and, realizing she is really 4300 miles away, I picked up some Cap’n Crunch and some Honey Bunches of Oats.

Hey, I had Multi-grain Cheerios last week.

What is cereal?

Cereal is “part of your nutritious breakfast” and “a packaged breakfast food. It is eaten cold, usually mixed with milk or water, but sometimes eaten dry. Some cereals, such as oatmeal, may be served hot as porridge. Some companies promote their products for the health benefits from eating oat-based and high-fiber cereals. Cereals may be fortified with vitamins. Some cereals are made with high sugar content.” [source]
