Cereal: The world's best snack
August 14, 2009 8:16pm CST
Just now I did something that I do often. I went into the kitchen seeking junk food... and came out with a big bowl of cereal and milk. Cereal is great. It fulfills my craving for snacks b/c of the crunch, it also gives me some healthy benefits with the milk, and it fills me up! I eat the yummy kinds like Cinnamon Toast Crunch, so it gives me flavor too. A lot of times when I'm in the mood for chips or ice cream, I find myself remembering the cereal and suddenly craving it. I know some people like to comment on how stuff like cinnamon toast crunch isn't that "healthy", but hey, it's better than ice cream and chips right? I also find myself bringing baggies of cereal to work for munchies. Cereal is just an all around great snack. Do you ever snack on cereal? It's not just for breakfast in this house :) What other "healthy" snack options do you like?

I love cereal for a snack especially when I was pregnant with my first cause it was one of the few things that didn't give me heartburn! *LOL* Great snack, that I leave a box in the van for the kids if they get hungry. Other healthy snacks, salad, veggies, & right now fruit cause it's very cheap right now but won't be for long. I guess that's why people here put on the pounds in winter cause we can't go out and do much & fruit & veggies get expensive cause it's technically "out of season" for anything local

That is a good idea for the van, because you don't really have to worry about it going bad in the car. I never pay attention to fruit and veggie prices, for me it's just good to remember any! I love fruit and veggies but we get lazy for sure about those. But I'm craving something healthy so we might just have to make a fruit salad this week!
