John and I went without cold cereal for breakfast for years. He ate a light English muffin sandwich with egg substitute and cheese. I ate oatmeal or a Burger King sandwich that wasn’t too much in WW points.
At some point, we made it back to breakfast cereal. Frankly, though I love to eat cereal, the reason I didn’t eat it for so long (besides its cost) was that it’s a big carb hit that makes me crash and feel hungry by 10 a.m. But it’s just too hard to resist some days.
I’m trying to get back to oatmeal (old-fashioned, not that instant mush). It doesn’t really take that much more time, just three minutes in the microwave.
Besides this, I want to try Cream of Wheat again. I loved that as a kid. Also, Martha Stewart Living grabbed my attention this week with a newsletter post for English Muffin with Apple and Cheddar.
Oh, my goodness that sounds good. I’m planning to try it as soon as I’m out of Golden Grahams.
