QOTD 1/17/2013: Cereal Killer

Postby LucyLu » Thu Jan 17, 2013 12:44 pm

I'm sure we've covered this before, but its fun topic: What are your breakfast cereal habits? Hot? Cold? Only for breakfast? With fruit? How do you enjoy your favorite box?

I love cereal.

Oatmeal, Cream of Wheat, Frosted Flakes, Life, Cheerios, Grape Nuts, Honey Bunches of Oats...

When I was a kid, Life was the only sugary-added cereal my mom would let me get. On rare occasions, she would buy Lucky Charms or something like that, but then I could only have it for an after school snack.

I still like sweet cereals dry as a snack.

I also LOVE me some Hot Buttered O's.

Mostly oatmeal for me. The only packaged cold cereal I eat is organic raisin bran because I just love raisin bran. The rest don't appeal to me so much but every now and then I'll give one a try. So many of them are way too sweet, though, so that's why they don't appeal.

And then there's granola. I enjoy a really good granola with all its texture and variety of flavors, but again most are too sweet.

Cereal is a morning dish, but ocassionally, on some desperate nights when even heat 'n eat seems to troublesome, I'll pour a bowl of raisin bran for dinner.

I have cereal for breakfast every morning. I mix about 3/4 of a bowl of Cheerios and top with Honey Nut Cheerios. I add some dried wild blueberries from Trader Joe's, a tablespoon of ground flaxseed, and top with vanilla almond milk.

Mostly things like oatmeal, grits, cornmeal mush, shredded wheat, wheat chex, grapenuts, kashi is a luxury and overly sweet, thing on the fiber-ish side. Then I add a banana or have a piece of fruit.

Like buckwheat in pancakes, too! There is a GREAT waffle recipe at Rumson Baking Powder site that calls for all whole wheat flour. Think I will give it a try with buckwheat some time.

Breakfast depends what time I wake up and how much time (after I get dressed and such) I have before needing to leave for work.

Weekday breakfast is usually a quick bowl of cereal or a protein shake.
Weekend breakfast could be eggs or french toast or some kind of casserole.

Coffee is a must, regardless of the day.

However, since I'm bachelorette-ing it now because of my husband's deployment, I am opting for quick and easy (read: lazy) options.

Breakfast is usually leftovers from the night before. I like cereal a lot but I can't handle a lot of grain fiber, most cereals give me bad gas so I don't eat them. I will occasionally indulge in a box anyway but then I only eat it in the evenings, bedtime snack maybe. Mini wheats are prettty much the only low sodium cereal so it's usually that, frosted strawbery or blueberry. I do love hot cereals, like malt-o-meal and cream of wheat. I will have those sometimes. I need protein in the morning though, not carbs, so even those are a later in the day thing.

I love oatmeal, but if I limit the field to box cereal, shredded wheat (regular or frosted mini) would be my first choice. When I was a kid & my dad did breakfast on school days, if it was cold, the shredded wheat had warm milk & butter, and in warm weather, cold milk & sugar.

I am a sugary-cereal junkie!

Yes, I ate them as a kid, and I'm just continuing the tradition. :wink:

Frosted Flakes, Golden Grahams, Alpha-Bits, Cinnamon Toast Crunch..and others that I can't remember...

I also like to snack on Frosted Mini-Wheats any time of day. Love the strawberry ones.

I do not like cold cereal. Blech. Breakfast has to have eggs and some type of pork product. Oh, and coffee. Oh, and a big ole glass of ice water.

I only eat it for dessert these years. Usually a flake, nut and cluster TJ's cereal. I love multi-grain hot cereals, also usually at night; don't like straight oatmeal. I prefer lunch or dinner-type food for breakfast, and breakfast for dinner. :lol: I have Quaker Simple Harvest oat, wheat & barley "maple" sugar & pecan instant, and "Better Oats Abundance" 6 grain cereal in the pantry right now. Better with a touch of milk.
I can't bite into toasted sandwiches or eat shredded wheat because they shred the inside or roof of mouth behind my front teeth and it's not worth the pain. I'd eat a patty melt with a knife and fork though.
Wow, I'm hungry.

If I'm eating cold cereal, I'm eating Kashi Heart to Heart with All-Bran Buds,
a few tablespoons of ground flax, blueberries and a handful of almonds. I use
vanilla flavored unsweetened almond milk, maple sugar and a lot of cinnamon.

If I'm eating hot cereal, I'm eating TJ's steel cut oats mixed with a serving of
Country Choice Organic Hot MultiGrain Cereal, a few tablespoons of ground flax,
blueberries and a handful of almonds.I add a touch of maple syrup and a lot of
cinnamon.

Otherwise I'm eating scrambled eggs w/sauteed peppers, onions & spinach.

Holy Moly! Check out the fanatics & reviews. :lol:
http://www.seriouseats.com/cereal_eats/

I don't like sugary cereals; I buy plain multi-grain flakes to mix in with boxed TJ's cereals. I want kasha! For breakfast too.

I have an extraordinary craving for CHEX of ANY kind now. The prices are absolutely ridiculous though.

And even though we did have Coco Puffs and Cap'n Crunch as kids, both of us loved Team flakes. I'd buy it online if it was still in production.

Costco had three packs (wheat, rice, corn) for making party mix - I was going to make party mix but ended up eating all the cereal instead :oops:

Thanks for reminding me - I'll have to go back and check to see if they still have 'em and get another box 'o three if they do.

I really like Cracklin' Oat Bran - without milk. I mix in some nuts and dried fruit and it becomes a quick granola. (I need to make this and bring it to work)

Gosh, am I the only one here who doesn't normally eat breakfast? My gut does not tolerate food before 9 am, so if I want to be able to make the drive to work, I must wait. I have a mocha at work and by the time I get really hungry, it's lunch.

You are not alone!

The cereal I mentioned in my post above, I often eat around 11:00am..if I'm home. If I'm at work, I don't eat till I've been there a few hours..just not really hungry/tummy not ready for food in the morning.

Not alone at all, but the original question was about cereal & it meandered into breakfast.

I love Rice Bubbles by any name! As a kid, they were a favorite. Problem is that my favorite way of consuming them, as cookies, throws my blood sugar into turbo overdrive these days. Farewell to the past, I suppose.

Carla, I agree that Wheat Chex are too expensive. There just has to be a cheaper version out there somewhere.
