I believe I may have previously posted about what I eat in the morning for breakfast. It's healthy stuff - chia seeds, granola, dried fruit, etc. My husband calls it, "Rocks and Pebbles." He has also called it, "Unidentifiable Debris." As mentioned in the previous post, he likes to take a Sharpie marker and label the cereal boxes and bags with these creative titles.
Well, the other day, he brought home a box filled with round things. He took one of the round things out and ate it for breakfast.
My son took one, too.
I looked at the boys. "Dudes, what are you eating?"
"They're called, donuts, Mama. Breakfast of champions," my son said.
I narrowed my eyes and grabbed a Sharpie marker. I drew a skull with crossbones on the box. Then I wrote, "Body Poison. Eat at your own risk."
They just looked at me, laughed, and grabbed another donut. Because obviously, the Mama doesn't know a darn thing about breakfasts of champions. I shook my head. I'll take my "Strange Edible Mixture of Bird Seed" over donuts any day!
Well, I think I'd take the donut. Although a bagel would be better.ReplyDelete
A bagel would definitely be better!Delete
"Body Poison." LOL, love it! I'm not too keen on sweets, so your version of breakfast actually sounds more tempting to me!ReplyDelete
People are always amazed that I can resist donuts. I just don't like them. Way too sweet!Delete
So funny, Sherry. You're right about donuts. They'd never make it into our house either. My dad was very strict about what we ate.ReplyDelete
I like chocolate, and sometimes ice cream, but I can definitely resist donuts.Delete
I'd take the rocks and pebbles over the donuts these days... they have more flavor anyhow ;-)ReplyDelete
Sadly, I would probably grab the donut. Good thing I don't keep any around. ;)ReplyDelete
I think when you're used to eating healthy, all the sweet stuff just doesn't taste good.Delete
Hi, dear Sherry!ReplyDelete
I'm the health nut in my family, too, and I applaud you for watching what you eat. In spite of the advertising claims, sugar-coated cereals are not good for you and are not "part of a balanced breakfast." Take it from me and the Ten Zany Birds - "Strange Edible Mixture of Bird Seed" is the healthier choice! :)
Haha! The zany birds know a thing or two. And so do you! :)Delete
oh, come on, Sherry. everyone knows doughnuts are breakfast of champions. chocolate covered are the best.ReplyDelete
I'll take the chocolate - but not the donut! ;-)Delete
You have a much better choice indeed.ReplyDelete
I think so, too!Delete
So would I, Sherry. With five children, I always told my husband if he just had to eat a donut for breakfast, he had to hide to eat it. End of story. Thanks for sharing this. I'm on the blog hop with C. Lee McKenzie, et al. I've joined your blog and will connect with you online.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Victoria. I'll hop over to your blog. My meme post is on March 1st.Delete
Hehehe! I have my Greek yogurt. Not as yummy as donuts, but I admit, I am not a donut champion as I once was when I was younger!ReplyDelete
I like Greek yogurt. I'll take that over donuts any day!Delete
i have a love/hate relationship with donuts.ReplyDelete
i hate when my hub brings them home because i love to eat them and i hate that!
Haha! Try Strange Edible Bird Seed when he brings the donuts. It might distract you to help you resist temptation. :)Delete
Love donuts. But they're better as dessert. Not breakfast.ReplyDelete
Definitely not a good breakfast!Delete
as long as they don't ask you to make them doughnuts yourselfReplyDelete
I wouldn't even know where to begin on that one!Delete
I like a donut here and there. I know they're not good for breakfast.ReplyDelete
Definitely not good for breakfast. A complete shock to the body!Delete
If I ate a donut for breakfast, I'd feel sick all morning. Ever since I had gestational diabetes with my second child, I've eschewed all carbs for breakfast. I go for the protein -- egg white omelets whenever possible!ReplyDelete
I used to write "Do Not Eat" on certain packages of food because I needed them to cook a meal. I felt quite innovative.ReplyDelete
I'd also prefer trail mix, I mean "rocks and pebbles," as a snack over donuts. These creative nutritional labels in your home are a fun way to encourage healthy eating!ReplyDelete
