Guilty Pleasures

Posted Jan 04 2013 7:24pm
Good Afternoon and TGIF!

I hope everyone is having a great Friday so far.  It is an absolutely gorgeous day and I have been trying to spend as much time outside as possible.  Shh..... I know I talk way to much about the weather but it has been quite DRY (no rain) and Sunny this week which is such a treat for us Pacific NW'er's.  I don't even bother to look at the weather forecast anymore and just try to live in the moment and today has been a pleasant surprise.

Now the subject that keeps popping into my mind, is Guilty Pleasures and I decided to share a few of mine with you.  I would also love to hear about your guilty pleasures.  Do share!

So one of my biggest guilty pleasures is that I absolutely, positively, LOVE cereal.  I actually have weaned myself off it and because A) it comes in a box and B) I know too much.  Anything that comes out of an extruder despite have claims of being Whole Grain or having 100% of my Daily Vitamins and Minerals is probably not the smartest choice. 

BUT, eating cereal with milk, brings me back to my childhood and is true comfort food to me. When I was little I loved Raisin Bran, Rice Chex and Frosted Flakes.  During college I loved Quaker Oatmeal Squares (and still do).  I ate countless bowls of Rice Chex when I was pregnant with Emmet and I had moved on to Kashi Go Lean Cereal when I was pregnant with Zoe.  Thus, I am so happy that I have kids because I can sneak a bowl of cereal from time to time when I need my fix.

Today, I just flat out bought a box of cereal for myself.  2013 is the year of no guilt for me and if I want to cereal, then damn it, I am going to have cereal!

I loved Kashi Go Lean Crunch for many years and was a bit dismayed when I found out the Kashi brand was one of the big offenders of using GMO's in their cereals.  Even with this knowledge, I would walk past the cereal aisle with a bit of longing. 

So, today when I was at Whole Foods I noticed that they make a knock-off version of Kashi Go Lean Crunch called 365 Everyday Protein & Fiber Crunch.  I decided to take a leap of faith and buy the cereal to be enjoyed in moderation.

I figured that I often consume 200 calories worth of indulgent treats everyday (I am found of my chocolate chip/peanut butter chip combo)  and that if I wanted to indulge in a comforting bowl of cereal and milk then by all means I should!  A little munch fest is planned for later this evening: ) Just one bowl.

My other guilty pleasure is what I just mentioned- Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate Chips + Sunspire Peanut Butter Chips.  Oh boy, do I love this little treat.
