An Ode to Cereal and Milk

Let's admit: We're all privy to breakfast trends such as the infamous avocado toast (there's a fan club, y'all), quinoa oatmeal, or Greek yogurt bowl with chia and coconut and miscellaneous superfood supplements. A recent study even observed that millennials are "too lazy" to enjoy a bowl of cereal and milk.

Preposterous.

As a millennial and foodie, I do not digress, but instead argue that it's impossible to replace the nostalgia-powered staple in all of our pantries: cereal and milk. Today is National Cereal Day. Consider this my ode.

I'm powering up my week after morning bootcamp with a big 'ole bowl of Nature Valley's new cereal line. The options are versatile and filling, satisfying and flavorful.

I'm most fond of uniquely-shaped Baked Oatmeal Bites drizzled in vanilla, which also fashioned as a protein and fiber-filled snack. Top the bites with fresh pomegranate seeds and a big splash of natural Almond Milk, and you're good to go.

The naturally-sweetenedHoney Oat Clusters are a home-run as well, combining our childhood favorites of corn flakes with hearty clusters of oats and whole grains. The medley is mild yet energizing.

Join me in celebrating cereal today and every day, why don't you? Let's prove laziness wrong.
