Cereal for lunch?
Again, I'm told I am clueless about the world

Several months ago I posted my shock to find out that "body wash" had replaced bar soap in most US homes.

Now I learn, thanks to the NYT, that...
Among consumers who buy cereal, 59 percent eat it for breakfast most mornings, while 40 percent have a bowl for lunch or dinner sometimes, according to Mintel, a market research firm. [nytimes.com...]
40 percent?

I was interested in this article because Kelloggs killed off my favorite breakfast cereal, called Just Right. I've been trying different products and have more or less settle on a Post product which I don't even know the name of, but it's got dates and pecans in it, but is not as good as Just Right was.

I can't remember the last time (if ever) that I had a bowl of cereal for dinner or even lunch. (Maybe night owls who don't wake up until the afternoon are calling their first meal of the day "breakfast" even if it's 2 P.M.?)

However, every once in a while I might have a small snack of some cereal (mostly granola or the rare Coco Puffs), maybe a cup's worth. But not as meal by itself.

To avoid snacking on fatty, sugary foods, I keep a container of the basic shredded wheat (bite size) cereal (the one with nothing in it but wheat) and eat it, dry, no milk, throughout the day. I'll just munch at a few at a time to help keep the hunger pangs at bay. I don't think i've ever eaten a bowlful of cereal at one sitting at any time other than breakfast.

That sounds like it would work, unless it has a lot of salt. A nutritionist friend of mine tells people to snack on dry roasted unsalted almonds.

I eat cold pizza for breakfast sometimes. Don't know if that qualifies or not but if nobody volunteers to cook I generally take the path of least resistance.

I was told carrots or celery sticks. That lasted about a day and a half.

It's almost sad to watch carrots sticks wither in the fridge...

Tangor, you're clearly a man after my own heart. In fact I think I know you. Didn't we pass out together one night on the chest of a well endowed Amsterdam lady of the evening?

Probably not, but I do remember an Amazon of Texas wherein a similar situation occurred. :)

Let us all raise a glass of liquid bread and get on with our day.

I don't eat much cereal but when I do it's usually late night snack.
