Having to make the important decision

Post by mysty »

Yesterday in Lidils we stood gazing at the breakfast cereal she suggested the small multi pack I was thinking of the sugar covered frosty type ones.
After a couple of minutes I was given the job of picking the cereal.
I picked the healthier option and went for the packet above.
This morning like most I prepared breakfast.
She said that was like eating cardboard, having never eaten cardboard I could not say she was wrong but it was not that bad.
Looks like I might not be trusted when it comes to making the difficult decisions in life.
Should have gone for the coco pops.

I do, but I'm very particular about its structure.

We ate muesli for the first time on a camping/walking holiday in Switzerland about 40 years ago and it was supposed to be be real thing, bircher muesli, soaked overnight etc. I found it to be awful, although my husband and sons wolfed it down.

So I don’t like it and never eat it, but my husband eats it every day, a bought fruit and nut muesli with no added sugar - some mueslis he’s chosen in the past have probably had as much sugar as the really sugary ones pushed at children.

Today I’m eating Weetabix (plain - I’ve heard of an abomination where people put jam on it!) with semi-skimmed milk, plus fresh orange juice, black grapes and a fig, followed by a mug of fennel tea. It’s a beautiful morning outdoors.

I think I'd stay outdoors until that lot works its way through - you don't want to risk messing up indoors. :D

Yes, have always had it for breakfast with yoghurt, these days there are so many different forms but most have far to much sugar in them.

I prefer an egg in the morning if we have time which we usually don't so breakfast tends to be coffee on the go. As you can see we are at a filling station with the car loaded, only problem is he left the flask at the house on the work surface so we have coffee ready to be reheated when we get back :lol:
