Happy Mother’s Day to All & Happy Birthday to Me!

  Well it’s hard to believe I am an “adult” today although I am trying to look at it as a good thing as much as possible—I just don’t like the fact to be growing up! But we must remember that’s age is just a number, it’s how we feel (and act!!) that determines our age. For me, I plan on being a kid at heart for a long time! I’m not doing anything totally extravagant today..other than church and making a big birthday+mother’s day dinner—check back tomorrow for the recap.

  Since the day around here is obviously focused on all things celebrations, I thought I would celebrate my contest winning over at Me and Goji in their cereal creation/naming contest. I mentioned awhile back that the name of my creation is “Berry Spice ‘n Everything Nice”. It consists of Samurai Wheat, Ground Cinnamon, Rye Flakes, Shredded Wheat, Dried Blueberries, and Dried Strawberries—it turned out amazingly good! If you would be interested in buying a box I can hook you up with the recipe ID. It’s $10.40 for a huge 21 oz box!

I had heard about Me and Goji floating throughout the blog world so you better believe I was stoked when it arrived in the mail, the first day I was home—perfect timing! =)


Loved the capsule-like container vs. a box. It takes up a lot less room in my already stuffed cereal cupboard!



For a 3/4 C serving you get a whopping 116.1mg of potassium, 5.3! grams of fiber, and 3.7 grams of protein. Plus a slew of vitamins with only minimal sugar and very low fat counts. I was impressed that this is how my creation turned out nutritional wise, seeming how I didn’t pay attention to it till I was done mixing!


Check out the stunning texture! The hefty wheat flakes, dried fruits, a mixture of flakes with a yummy aroma of cinnamon. I was pretty pleased with how it turned out! I would love for you to try it if you ever get the chance!

Have a great Sunday & see y’all tomorrow!
