ode to my cereal

i love my cereal.  i have it every morning for breakfast (and have done so for the past 4 years or so).  what can i say...i'm a creature of habit.  and (since i've had the luxury of time) i'm pretty sure i've mastered the art of the perfect bowl.  my morning cereal ritual is not to be taken lightly.  it's much more than corn flakes in a bowl with milk.  it's an experience that takes finesse.

my perfect bowl : )

-1 cup cereal (preferably a mix of 2-3 of your favorite kinds.  i <3 kashi golean crunch and multi-grain cheerios)
-1 tbsp raisins (or craisins if you're feeling spunky)
-1 tbsp chopped pecans
-1/4 banana, sliced (save the remainder for tomorrow's bowl or a snack or shake later : )
-a few strawberries, sliced
-sprinkle of cinnamon
-dash of nutmeg
-3/4 to 1 cup soy milk (or skim milk)

mix all dry ingredients with fruit & spices in bowl.  top with milk.  it's the perfect mix of slightly sweet & satisfyingly crunchy.  enjoy! 

my favorite bowl is my buddha bowl.  craig gave it to me for my birthday last year, and it's sculpted to fit in the palm of your hand.  if you're a serial cereal consumer, you need one.  believe me.  oh cereal, you're deliciously divine!

what's your go-to breakfast?  (for a free kashi treat click here.)


  1. man, i lived and breathed cereal as a kid. i'm (relatively) proud to say i have graduated to eggs for breakfast, however cereal does frequently fit the bill.

  2. Hmmmm yum! Cereal is good! You've already been added to the list. thanks:) have a good night!

  3. I love corn flakes with half a cup of greek yogurt, skim milk, fresh strawberries and a drizzle of honey; so freaking yummy!!! The greek yogurt adds a tangy taste to the cereal and it's amazing! :)

  4. that DOES look like a great bowl of cereal.

  5. Yum. It looks healthy and delicious.

  7. I definitely need to spruce up my morning breakfast routine. My usual consists of a Tiger's Milk bar and coffee in a to-go cup. Thanks for the little recipe!

  8. We certainly have to beautify my personal early morning breakfast every day regimen. My personal typical includes a Tiger's Whole milk club as well as espresso inside a to-go mug. Many thanks for that small formula!
