The joke was on me this morning. I measured out my Fiber One and cut up my half banana, then discovered the only milk in the house to pour over it was 2%. All the skim milk was gone. #1 Son is a big milk-drinker. All we had left was the milk intended to put a little weight back on our skinny Snowman before he leaves for Land o’ Lakes (doctor’s orders).
So here was my breakfast tracker:
1/2 cup Fiber One cereal — 0 points (which seems ridiculous, but that’s how they calculate those high fiber foods; tastes a bit like twigs)
1/2 large banana — 1 point
1/2 cup 2 % "reduced" fat milk — 1.5 points!!! AARGH!!!!!! (Skim would have been .5)
2% milk tasted roughly equivalent to the combination of skim milk and half-and-half I have used so many times as a comfort measure. I ate it, but I didn’t like it.
Hey, I didn’t like it!!!
(Thank you for your suggestions on last night’s post. I’m going to respond to them when I get back from a walk.)
