RQOTD - Wednesday

If I were to open up your cupboard/pantry what kind of cereal would I find in your house right now?

You would find...
Wheat Chex, Rice Chex, Chex, and generic fruit loops.

(all the Chex because I made some homemade Chex mix. I don't like Chex mix that much, LOL)

Something similar to raisin bran but is too sweet for me. I cannot remember the name. There is also a box of some Central Market berry flavored cereal that Jordan will snack on sometimes.

A box of Kashi Go Lean! Crunch honey almond flax, a box of Kashi sunshine, and a box of Total raisin bran. Aiden likes the sunshine, I like the crunch, and DH likes total.

I have no idea! I rarely eat cereal and don't really feed it to the kids. I'm sure there are Cheerios and maybe a few boxes of Chex, so G can make Chex mix. We do more oatmeal than cold cereals.

I wish Sarafina would eat oatmeal. I cannot feed Keira oatmeal in the morning because she freaks out that she is getting something different than Sarafina. So, both girls eat yogurt and a Kashi cereal bar, which makes me feel guilty because of the amount of sugar. It could be worse though. They could be eating pop tarts like some kids. Lol Isaiah was begging for a pop tart this morning. We only buy them about once a year and they are considered treats. He knows some people eat them for breakfast, so I got to hear, "Mommy, just this once, can I PLEASE have a pop tart for breakfast?" Lol

My husband bought pop tarts a couple of weeks ago and wanted to give one to Aiden for breakfast last weekend! Oh heck no!!! I made him read the nutritional info on the back. Blum 3 *I* won't eat pop tarts, why the heck would I give one to my 14 MONTH old?! lol

Why would anyone eat a pop tart? Nutrition aside, they are just plain gross!

Confession - I bought Pop Tarts for the first time in probably 15 years a couple of months back. When you are sick and super picky, you buy what sounds good. For some reason, it sounded good! I gave Jordan a few bites here and there but only the crust part, lol. She had no idea she was missing the filling and icing.

Ok, I don't want to respond....I love sugar.

We have Cheerios, Chex, Coco Puffs, and Peanut Butter Captain Crunch. We have oatmeal, too. I also have some Pop Tarts. I bought them awhile back after J begged for them in the grocery store. When he eats one, it is for a snack or dessert. He doesn't eat them for breakfast.

Kix and some Organic pumpkin granola from Costco. I can't eat any of it right now. I have gluten free oatmeal with fruit every morning with black coffee. Sad

Cali- I'm coming over for breakfast tomorrow! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE PB Crunch cereal. LOVe it! I don't allow myself to buy it more than a couple times a year because I eat it all in one fantastic serving. Mmmmmmmm! I really like Coco Puffs too, but those I haven't had in ages!

That sucks Joy. Sad Those diets are no fun.

I found a pretty good alternative to Cap'n'Crunch. It's Central Market's PB cereal. Probably not the best but definitely has less sugar. Jordan recently discovered cereal with milk and looooves it. That's what I get for trying to feed her oatmeal and then eating cereal in front if her. Her favorite part is drinking the milk out of the bowl when she is done.

I love PB Crunch too! I rarely buy it. Isaiah will want to eat it for breakfast and I am pretty sure it will put him in a sugar coma while at school. ROFL I also love sugar, and I personally like pop tarts. I just don't eat them. I am pretty sure that I would rather waste my empty calories on brownies, cakes, or cookies. Forget the manufactured pastries! Lol

Joy- I am sorry that you have to eat differently right now. Sad I know that is so hard. The idea of black coffee makes me cringe. Of course, I like my coffee all girly with flavored creamer and sugar. Ha!

No, Central Market is like Whole Foods. A grocery that carries more organic brands. They have their own brand and I love some of their products. On Mondays, if you spend $20 (or $25?) then you can buy two and get one free of their half gallon of organic milk. It's $6 for a gallon and half which is a cheaper than any other deals I've found. They also have organic applesauce for a great price. I wish I didn't have to battle highway traffic to get there or I would go more often.

I know Puffins makes a PB cereal but it's definitely not as good. There is also some organic brand for kids (Koala in the name maybe?) but I looked and the sugar content is high. Central Market's brand is the best alternative I've found so far and you can see that I've shopped around. Wink

Why don't we have a Central Market?? I buy a gallon and 3 half-gallons of organic milk a week. It is expensive. The gallon is for four of us. One half-gallon is for Sarafina's whole milk at home. Then, the other two half-gallons are for daycare because I want the girls exclusively on organic milk. I could use the buy two, get one free on the half-gallons of milk! Biggrin

I love those cereals. Right now I have Fruity Pebbles, Shredded Mini Wheats and Chex - Justin doesn't like sweet cereal and I'll just eat any kind he buys. Deacon doesn't eat cereal so its all ours. We do buy pop tarts though and we all like them, nutrition aside. Wink
