I just got Matt’s first newsletter which included an article about breakfast cereals, coincidentally, when I had just bought some breakfast cereals for the first time in about 3 years LOL
What breakfast cereals do you like? I got oatibix, Jordons Granola and organic cornflakes.
Anyone? anyone? Bueller…Bueller…Bueller…

LOVE Jordan’s granolas?classic cheerios, Raisin Bran and “Life”?.
It has been a LONG time that I had not had them?and having read Matt’s article..it inspired me to re-try some of my favorites!..I really missed breakfast cereal in the morning..So fast, easily digested?and satisfying!
Having a bowl make me feel more “normal” and “fitting in” with our particular families’ environment?and I think that is more important than I ever would have realized.
I need to try “oatibix”I used to love “wheatabix”?is it made by the same English company??Now that it is quite chilly..I find myself in the mood for oatmeal as well..so warm and “cozy”!December 3, 2013 at 7:22 pm #14072cindy01Participant
I always envisioned the cereal aisle being riddled with sugar addicts and evil, verminous individuals who were deceived by the government about the healthy fibres and added vitamins in cereals and misguided about the saturated fat. I wanted to condescendingly ask someone “why aren’t you eating butter yet?”.
I love chocolatey cereals. Anything sugary; Fruit Loops, Cheerios. I could finish a family sized box of cornflakes in a day.December 4, 2013 at 5:25 am #14097Rosie123Participant
Glutwin – yes, Oatibix is made by the same company that makes Weetabix (I actually used to live near the Weetabix factory – the whole area smells like malted wheat – very nice!). Oatibix tastes exactly the same as Weetabix to me, but I’m still having problems with wheat so it is nice to have an alternative. I seem to be ok with oats.
Cindy01 – I too am just getting over the idea that cereal is evil – on thinking about it, it is actually very convenient and one of the few convenience foods that isn’t laden with PUFAs (depending on type). When I was a kid I used to love those Kellogs mini variety packs, a new cereal to try every day!December 4, 2013 at 12:52 pm #14103sunnydaeParticipant
LUCKY CHARMS. LUCKY CHARMS LUCKY CHARMS LUCKY CHARMS!! BOOYAH!!
And Cascadian Farms orgainic multi-grain squares (Ok…so I LIKE health-food!)
I am fitting right in here…first time in a year I’ve bought/ate cereal. I love it. I missed it. I’m scared this isn’t going to work.December 10, 2013 at 4:25 pm #14204Nvr2L8Participant
I just read that article too, and I had to pick myself up off the floor.
As a long time low carber, with metabolic syndrome (read: pre-diabetes) I have been convinced that cereals, homemade bread and snacks like Lime Doritos are precisely why I got in that condition. Those along with rice and pasta were staples in my diet. I’m going to have to do a lot more research to be convinced that those things aren’t the debbil for me :(January 29, 2014 at 8:58 pm #14832elfman5150Participant
LUCKY CHARM ftw!
Also, Reese’s Puffs, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and Life are up there on my list.April 28, 2014 at 6:04 pm #16275yayhowfunParticipant
