Errr. You caught me. That’s me at Fitbloggin chomping on the Uncle Sam Strawberry Cereal while the kettlebell session was going on nearby that I didn’t go to. But in my defense? That session was jam packed overflowing with peeps, and there was a lot of body heat in there. Okay!?!
So activated Plan B: cereal eatin’ in the hallway.
I use Uncle Sam Strawberry Cereal strategically. Sure it’s a breakfast cereal, so go on and do that after you scrape the crust out of your sleepy eyeballs. But I’d rather eat it for lunch or evening snack, because the hearty-filling texture, coupled with the slap of VERY LARGE freeze dried strawberry slices and whole flax seeds makes it a multi-tasking powerhouse.
A.) It makes my stomach shut the hells up for an extended time frame.
B.) The sweet strawberries keep my taste sensors happy.
C.) The child-spawns don’t steal it because there’s no cartoon clown on the box. (but this clown went too damn far)
D.) The ingredients list is short and pronounceable: Toasted Whole Wheat Berry Flakes (Whole Wheat Kernels, Salt, Barley Malt, Vitamin B2), Vitamin B1, Flax Seed, Sugar, Freeze Dried Strawberries, Natural Flavor.
E. No preservatives. Nada.
F.) All of the above.
If you guessed F, you win 10 points AND get to do a free round of 100 speed squats before dinnertime. <– (C’mon! It’ll only take you like 5 minutes.)
