Cereal For Dinner

Each night when I come home from work my fiancée and I seem to have a reoccuring fight discussion surrounding dinner. I feel guilty when she cooks because I never cook, but I do clean the dishes (unless I try to weasel out). Therefore, I always fall back on suggesting my wonder, satisfying, safety dinner meal.

Cereal.

Cereal for Dinner
So many tasty options

What’s wrong with cereal? It is quick. It is filling. It can be part of a balanced meal, but I usually eat the more unbalanced side and just have the cereal. Is this a sexist debate? I’ve questioned many and more often than not I received the same split. Girls say it is not a meal while guys agree it is a meal.

I mean, I understand where my fiancĂ©e is coming from as she wants me to eat something “healthier” for dinner. I’ll give myself some credit. I’ve moved away from the more “sugary” cereals to enjoy the dark side of cereal. I’m talking about the Raisin Brans, Special K, and of course my golden staple, Honey Nut Cheerios. I’m fighting to lower my cholesterol. Are you? Sure, I’d love to fall back down the “adult” ladder and pick up the latest prize filled cardboard box of Fruity Pebbles, Corn Pops, or Captain Crunch, but alas I don’t. I pick up the family size of Honey Nut Cheerios….for one.

So back to the original question. Can cereal count as dinner? Or better yet, can cereal be a meal?
