I think I have a problem
Do you think we have enough cereal in the house? Because I think I need to head back to Trader Joe's or PCC Natural Market for more.
How did it get this out of hand? Why the need to buy cereal every time I go to the store? I can say that yesterday when I purchased 2 boxes, it was because the EnviroKids Organic cereal was on sale and they had a new flavor and one the kids absolutely love but don't carry at Trader Joe's. The rest, um, I have no excuse. I especially have no excuse for having 3 boxes of Gorilla Munch. Two of them are open even. WTH? I blame it on the kids, when I say it's breakfast time, they run into the pantry and grab the cereal they want and I just pour it. At least it's all pretty healthy for them. I don't like them having sugar cereals, especially first thing in the morning. I know, I know, some of you see this as a form of child abuse, but I just can't see starting the day with sugar. That is why they love going to other peoples houses, they always have sugar cereal.
You are dying to know what kind I have, right? Maybe not, but I'm going to tell you anyway.
From left to right:
Pumpkin flax granola, Shredded Spoonfuls, Puffins Cinnamon, Vanilla Almond Clusters, Trek Mix Granola Simply Almonds, Cashews, and Cranberries, Gorilla Munch, Gorilla Munch, Leapin' Lemurs, Koala Crisp, Gorilla Munch, Panda Puffs, Quaker Oats (not pictured because Mason is currently eating some: vanilla almond granola)
Phew. That is a crap load of cereal. All the green boxes are EnvirKids Organic, and taste much like their sugary cousins, but have barely if any sugar in them. Gorilla Munch is like Kix (which isn't that bad for you anyway), Panda Puffs is like Peanut Butter Cap'n Crunch, Leapin' Lemurs is like Vanilla Chocolate Coco Puffs, and Koala Crisp is like Coco Crispies. They think I am giving them crap, but really they are getting good cereal. A nice bowlful with whole organic milk, a glass of pure juice, and a vitamin every morning.
Peace! Have a great weekend. Enjoy the sun (hopefully). Eat cereal. Hell, come to my house and have some cereal. Bye!
