It's about time I wrote about a topic for which I have a lot of passion: Kashi cereal. Cereal has always been one of my major food groups, and I am not picky about it. I love sweet cereals like Fruit Loops, Cap'n Crunch Peanut Butter, Apple Jax, Fruity Pebbles, and Golden Grahams. I also love the "healthier" Corn Chex, Wheaties, Cheerios, Rice Crispies, and Corn Flakes.

However my body needs a lot of protein and a little sugar, so unless I am eating cereal as a dessert I need to eat Kashi. And you know what? I LOVE it! Jim has even started eating it every morning, realizing that the drive-thru bagel is not the healthiest way to start his day.

My favorite variety because of its high protein-to-sugar ratio is Go Lean, but admittedly it is a little bland. Jim has been chowing down the Go Lean Crunch, but that has a bit too much sugar for my needs. We have discovered that a BLEND of the two is fabulous, and now I have even started doing a 2:1 with the Berry Granola version. I just had my first bowl of that and I am in love. The granola has real little berries, including whole black berries, and the milk turned pink and delicious when I was done, too. Just like it does with Franken Berry.
