As long as I've been buying groceries for myself, I've never included cereal on that weekly list. Sure, I love the way it tastes. It's delicious, sweet, crunchy — a perfect snack. And that's precisely why I don't buy it. I will eat up all those empty calories for breakfast, and be hungry for lunch at approximately 9:15 a.m.
Granola is a different story, though, and we've been baking a homemade batch almost weekly this month to great success.
