I'm not gonna lie to you, I'm not as healthy as I should be and I don't get a lot of calcium in my diet. I don't take supplements and one day I'll probably be on the Sally Field osteoporosis medication that always makes me think of this because I'm apparently, a 12 year old boy.
Anywhoo, I DO love cereal. Sometimes I eat it for dinner, sometimes I'll have two huge bowls on the weekend, you never know.
Several years ago, my SIL started going all organic and I thought that it was silly to pay SO MUCH MORE for grocery items that you buy every week or so. Then I went on vacation and a friend bought organic cereal and when I questioned it, she said it lasts longer, which didn't make any sense to me.
When I got home, I realized she wasn't kidding! I bought a carton of fat free organic milk a week ago and it's good until 12/4/09! As a single person who only uses milk for cereal and some recipes, I realized the extra two bucks makes up for it in that I don't have to replace it so quickly.
And there you have it folks, my organic "a ha" moment!
