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.
When it comes to healthier options in breakfast cereals it is an uphill struggle in France. You are presented with a vast array of sugary, faux chocolat flavoured tooth rot but not a lot else. If you are really lucky you can find the mega expensive Kelloggs products or a substitue that tastes like toasted floor sweepings from a rope factory.
You've made me smile with that description.

I sometimes have cold raw porridge with fruit and yoghurt. I find all cereal are much too sweet.

Healthy muesli does not exist in France, by healthy I mean rabbit food and no processing, added sugars etc.

15 years ago Aldi sold it as a budget line in a plainish clear bag and it was only 99cts per kg, I was in heaven but everyone else turned their noses up.

I have had the same power breakfast every day now for a decade very similar to MoTM's, here is a photo of todays offering:

I use 1/2 a banana (or whole small one) mashed with some sel de mer, my only salt intake for the day, then a few goji berries if I have them, pour on 65g (1 ramekin) of whole jumbo oats, add water & then microwave for 2 minutes.

Then I add several spoons of home made fruit salad and top it off with 3 heaped dessert spoons of fromage blanc, its a hot dish with a cold topping, a huge pile weighing 650g IIRC.

ATS2 how do you upload your pictures so quickly ?
I am still using Imgur which Why Me put me on to a couple of years back but it is very time consuming.
I just upload the photo direct from my phone but I see FFS has answered you and I saw the photo of your dog, lovely pooch. :) I do sometimes edit the photo with reducing the size before uploading it.

They did a great job of allowing photos to be uploaded without the faff.

I can upload from my computer (just did so on the doorway thread) or from my phone but I struggle to type on that, the compromise above was to create the posting on my computer and then edit it from the phone to include the picture.

I never succeeded in uploading photos on any site after Photobucket became greedy, the upgrade on this site was very welcome.

Muesli is much more palatable with yoghurt I find.
Just like life.
