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...] 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.

... we're all getting old! i'll bet 'lazy' students regularly eat cereal for lunch or dinner to save cooking!

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.
