Kellogg's Frosted Mini-Wheats Strawberry Delight, 16.3-Ounce Boxes (Pack of 3)

HELLO, MY NAME IS NINA AND I AM AN ADDICT.

Actually, I have started buying the HyVee store brand in order to save money – and since I found silk milk, I’ve decided I think I have a problem.  He and I went to Hyvee the other night and I bought 3 boxes of mini wheats and 2 cartons of silk milk.  I’m uncomfortable with the fact that I might run out…uh oh…one box left in the cupboard, someone needs to go to the store.  Years ago, this would have described my Marlboro addiction.  The absolute minimum requirement is one bowl when I get out of bed and another sometime between supper and bedtime the next morning.  I have boxes stashed at work…in fact, I just ate a bowl before logging on to xanga.  When this first started, I didn’t think it would get out of hand due to the fiber content…I quite frankly figured that the fiber would take of itself…6 grams…I”m figuring 2 bowls will be about 12 grams-plus because I frequently fudge and eat more than 1 cup…I know this because I don’t think I get the recommended servings per package….and silk milk…I have not had it as a glass by itself but Kate says this is all she drinks, so decided to try it…I actually like it better than moo milk on my cereal…plus I feel that I”m benefitting from the soy during this time of my life.  So…now you all know my little secret.  Has anyone ever tried a bite of swiss cheese with some cachews or baby carrots in marzetti dill dip and a handful of cashews….mmmmmm

  3. I could go for the cheese and nuts combo, but I cannot eat the mini-wheats!  My mouth refuses to recognize them as a swallowable food.

  6. I don’t mean to interrupt the estrogen festival, but if I eat a bowl of those things, an hour later I have the shakes…it’s like too much caffeine. I think it’s all the sugar. Also, if you read the box you, will find they have absolutely no nutritional value. Good ruffage perhaps, but other than that, they have limited value. Soy milk should come with a label: WARNING, SOY MILK!!! Nasty stuff.

  7. Ok, now I’m off to try to Soy Milk.  At times I do use Rice Dream but it doesn’t hit the spot like the real thing.

  8. Oh yum! I haven’t tried soy milk yet, but I thought I might give it a whirl.  I’ve been doing WW for a couple of years now with much success and recently switch to their CORE plan – and I know Fat Free Soy is part of the food groups that I wouldn’t have to count points for……Maybe I’ll give it a whirl.  I LOVE shredded wheat though – all kinds.  Admitting it is the first step…
