I didn't do so good starting my detox diet yesterday. It's hard to begin a diet when there's others you have to feed in your household. Bill was still here for lunch and then there were the dinner leftovers from New Years, almost a whole pork roast swimming in sauerkraut...Michael won't touch anything that's touched sauerkraut. So I suppose I'll be finishing off that roast by myself this week, which means detox most likely won't begin until next week. Eh, not a big deal...my thighs don't know it's a new year, cellulite can hold on for a few more days.
It also didn't help that I found THREE new cereals at Walmart yesterday! Well, four, I guess. Kellogg's has come up with a new chocolate cereal called Krave. There's chocolate and double chocolate--a chocolate filled cereal bite that I simply couldn't live without. Then Cheerios now has a peanut butter flavor and a dulce de lecce flavor!! I was all in a cereal swirl over which to buy!! The double chocolate Krave won out this time--it simply sounded too glorious to leave on the shelf.
I've been craving chocolate at night, more like a cake craving, and trying to appease myself, have created my own version of the chocolate oatmeal no-bake cookie conglomeration, without the added sugar and butter. I dump about a half cup or so of old fashioned oatmeal in a bowl with a scoop of peanut butter and a squirt of chocolate syrup, squish it all together and viola! Dessert! It's whole grain and healthy fats, with only a tiny amount of sugar from the syrup, so, good, right?? Yeah, it's still probably a good three hundred calories or more that I don't need right before bedtime...So, finding this double chocolate Krave cereal, I thought I could possibly cut that calorie count in half by replacing my cookie mess with a bowl of cereal. It's worth a shot, at least in my mind...
So how is the cereal, you might ask? Not so good...It sticks to your teeth, like Cap'n Crunch or worse. It's chocolatey enough, but I don't like scraping cereal paste from my molars. Yuck. I definitely won't be adding it to my shopping list--but I will be trying those new Cheerios flavors!! Oh yeah....peanut butter and caramel--mm mm goodness gracious!!
|Yeah...not so much...|
