    Cereal for lunch, anyone?

    Hi CNET friends! Happy election day!

    So I'm about to head to class and I'm currently having cereal for lunch at 3pm.

    My sister looks at me like I am doing the unthinkable! She says "...cereal is for breakfast..."

    Am I the only one that does this?

    Good luck to everyone! ^_^

    Re: Cereal for lunch, anyone?


    Is there a law saying you can't have a hot fudge sundae for brekkie???

    ...exactly !!!!

    I really don't have an issue with cereal anytime of the day, even the cereal companies know, like General Mills, that cheerios are a great and nutritious snack. One of the things I love is being able to open up box of cereal and diving in for a handful of cereal. It's just perfect.

    it's actually been a while since I have had a box of cereal in the confines of bearville. milk as well. I've done the cereal in the evening while watching a movie, or at 1am when I cannot sleep. Think about the party bowl of chex mix!! Extending the brand has done quite well for all the cereal makers.

    Do i have a fav?? hmmm.
    I do like honey nut cheerios, cinamon life, frosted flakes...fruit loops even!

    And I know for a fact, that i will down a bowl of cereal when I absolutely don't want to make anything on the stove.

    seriously... cereal is an all day thing!!


    Re: Cereal for lunch, anyone?

    Hi Christy,

    I love cereal and I'd eat in all day every day. Its simple to prepare and clean up is easy. Ironically I'd prefer to eat cereal for dinner and dinner for breakfast (it helps me to stay full for a longer period of time).Although it "bothers" my uncle, it doesn't bother me at all. *inserts American accent* Mannn that's breakfast?

    A belly full is a belly full. In other words you eat your pasta with grilled chicken and broccoli for lunch and I'll eat Fruit Loops lol. We'll all be full :)

    Cheers to Cereal

    Re: Cereal for lunch, anyone?

    @dabear - Wow, oh my gosh, I've done the exact same thing! Eating cereal in the evening while watching a movie is more common for me than eating it for lunch. I also love to eat it without milk sometimes, like digging my hands in the box to snack on cereal throughout the day. It's such a lazy meal...hehehe. I absolutely LOVE Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Frosted Flakes!

    @HisChosen1 - Cheers to cereal! ^_^ My family is from Haiti and we always eat dinner foods for breakfast, which is why I don't understand why my sister thinks eating a breakfast food for lunch is strange.... lol

    Thanks guys, I feel so much better!

    Re: Cereal for lunch, anyone?

    I was going to say, why limit the question to lunch? Cereal is good any time of the day (or night!).

    @ChristyFanco - I frequently eat cereal in the evening while watching TV or a movie and it is definitely more common that lunch or even breakfast.

    Re: Cereal for lunch, anyone?

    There is never a bad time to have cereal! I feel like cereal is a great snack food while you are just relaxing at home and can be eaten any time during the day.

    Re: Cereal for lunch, anyone?

    hey, i say that if its all you have time for then it all you have time for so just eat what you can.

    Re: Cereal for lunch, anyone?

    Haha, we actually has cereal for dinner. We don't do it very often, but I got home too late to cook. The kids thought it was the best day ever!

    Re: Cereal for lunch, anyone?

    Nope, almost every roommate I have ever lived with does it, including myself. I do find it amusing that all of us still harbor some view that it were are, in fact, violating some principal of adulthood.

    My advice.

    Violate on.

    Have some fun.

    Eat cereal all day and swing on a swing and do things that surprise and amuse you.

    We are the universe, expressing itself in human form.

    How will you express your infinite self today?

    Re: Cereal for lunch, anyone?

    Well cereal is always an enjoyable meal whenever you have it!
    But I wouldn't say I have it very often for lunch or for dinner, only if I had nothing better to eat, or if I'm just feeling it!

    Re: Cereal for lunch, anyone?

    I think Cereal is a fantastic lunch! I often will keep a box in my desk and find or bring milk to work and a bowl and a spoon and chow down. Healthy, as long as it isn't fruit loops, and inexpensive, and easy! No heating up in the microwave!

    So tell your sis to think out of the box for once!!

    Re: Cereal for lunch, anyone?

    I love cereal sometimes that is all that I would eat. It's quick and tasty

    Re: Cereal for lunch, anyone?


    I have definitely eaten cereal for ALL meals of the day at some point in time.

    Breaksfast lunch dinner.... even midnight snack (its honestly best then!!)

    You can eat cereal anytime you want. you go girl ;)

    Re: Cereal for lunch, anyone?

    I agree! Cereal doesn't have to just be eaten at can have it all day if you'd like! :)

    And yeah, if I don't want to cook something up in the oven or on the stove, I will have cereal and milk or just make breakfast for dinner. Eggs, pancakes, cereal, juice, fresh fruit, a cup of tea...that sounds like a good breakfast to me! Nowadays I like to add a side of cooked vegetables to my dinner breakfast meals like zucchini. And I spread peanut butter on top of the pancakes for a protein packed bang!

    I do love cereal and have been eating quite a bit of it in the past few weeks. I love my tea but if I can have just one bowl of cereal a day, I will be a happy camper!

    Some of my favorite cereals over the years have been: Alphabits, Captain Crunch, Fruit Loops, Total Cereal, Honey Bunches of Oats, Krave and Life cereals. For hot cereals, I have been a long time fan of Cream of Wheat! It was my favorite cereal when I was a little girl and I haven't had it recently! Would love to taste it again this winter but I don't think I can find it where I live now! (overseas)

    Yay for cereal, though! :)

    Re: Cereal for lunch, anyone?

    You're definitely not alone, but I like it for dinner better ;)

    Re: Cereal for lunch, anyone?

    Hi Christy!

    Cereal?! Cereal is ma shit. I love cereal. In fact, I eat cereal nearly every day. In the morning, of course, but I can see why you've made the decision to eat it, even so late in the day. Why? Because its genuinely delicious! This of course depends on the kind of cereal you're eating, because not all cereal is created equal.

    My cup of milk happens to be Cascadian Farm granola and Nature's Path Pumpkin Flax and Peanut Flax cereal. I rarely buy anything else. Why these? I love CF's granola for it's distinct, natural tasting sweetness. The cinnamon raisin granola has a hint of spice to it (the cinnamon) and a touch of sugar (the sweetened raisins) that makes it a mouthful of awesome. On top of that, CF's granola softens wonderfully in milk to a consistency that is indescribable. Definitely something I want on my tongue in the morning.

    Don't get me started on NP Pumpkin and Peanut flax. I'm getting a tummy full of Omega 3's and an exceptional cereal experience when I decide to pour these puppies into my bowl. Especially the peanut one. It has peanut halves throughout the mix, giving you a subtle crunch that reminds you of what Reese's peanut butter cups taste like before they are processed.

    As a kid I ate cereal that's pretty bad for you. Fruity Pebbles, Smacks, Fruit Loops, Captain Crunch, the works. Eek, I can't believe I didn't get diabetes from eating that shit. I wouldn't touch any of that kind of cereal nowadays. I'll stick with my heavenly granola thank you very much! GFTW

    Re: Cereal for lunch, anyone?

    @AZDICT - I am the same, I eat it more frequently at night than for breakfast!

    @jreno97 - I agree, it's a great snack! I eat it when I work as well ^_^

    @keya95 - That's exactly how I feel! I'm always on the go, so this is just an easy lunch.

    @Genevieve - Oh my gosh, how cute is that!!! They must think it's some kind of holiday ...hehe

    @somethingsincere - Lol, i will definitely violate on.

    @Grace - It's honestly the best "I don't know what to eat" food... lol

    @fiveRoses - Congratulations on your win!!! I also used to bring it to work in those mini boxes, but I'm not working anymore so now I just bring it to class ^_^

    @KBrown - Yes! Quick and tasty!! :)

    @Amanda Langston - Lol have you had it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner all in one day?

    @ladyluck16 - Wow, you just made me really hungry. I am a lazy cook which is why cereal is my "go to" food. I also don't mind having a typical American breakfast for dinner as well!

    @htorrens - Lunch and dinner are my favorite times!

    @Kojones - Oh wow! I have to try those cereals! I LOVE granola. I'm going to see if they have it at Walmart. As a kid, I was pretty much forced to eat all that bad cereal lol. I'm not sure why my parents thought that it was part of a healthy breakfast. #fail

    Re: Cereal for lunch, anyone?

    I love cereal. I will eat it at any time of day. I would live off cereal if I had to. You just have so many options. Fruity, chocolaty, healthy, sugary. I would grab a salad bowl and mix stuff if I didn't crave anything else!
