me&breakfast

June 10, 2009

Great way to start the day:

  1. 30 minutes of Dave Farmar Sun Salutation Flow #2 (love this one because it’s very hard and leaves me shaky in only 30 minutes)
  2. A sunny breakfast
  3. A Contest!

IMG_7425 (1024x768)

I give you me&goji (1 cup) with banana, blueberries and milk –

IMG_7422 (1024x768)

I had the opportunity to create a mix last week and came up with the KERF Krunch –

IMG_7428 (1024x768) IMG_7430 (1024x768)

It’s a bit high in calorie for a 1 cup serving (300) but it is high in fiber and pretty good in protein, so you get a lot at once.

IMG_7429 (1024x768)

I really like the mix though! Y’all know that I love to mix cereals, so I took this opportunity to blend flakes, O’s, and granola – plus bananas and almonds. There were TONS of options to choose from, but I tried to keep it simple enough to appreciate the flavor combo. The best part are these dried bananas. I pictured them as crunchy chips, but they are chewy and sweet and OH-so-good!!

I was in a coffee mood, so I made a cup today too

Giveaway

So here’s your chance to try me&goji and help someone you think deserves a fun surprise in their life.

Leave a comment telling me about someone you know who deserves a special cereal mix and why, and you could each win a coupon to design a me&goji mix. You have by tonight at 8pm EST. Good luck!

I am off to work from home, to the gym around lunchtime, and then out with friends for Girls’ Night.

I am a cereal purist by heart, however, my sister is a cereal mixer. She’s an RD and works a ton of hours at the moment. I think she would enjoy bringing something fun to work. I would like to make the perfect yogurt topping!

Def. My husband, He loves to try new cerals all the time, I think he would really enjoy mixing up his own to create something new that he hasn’t had before. Our 6 yr old daughter would think it was pretty neat as well.

Hey Kath,

Good luck today!

Thought you and yours might enjoy a little silliness over at http://acadiadurham.blogspot.com… a post about all the Entirely Useless Items (shrink-wrapped, ready to nuke “Micro-Yams???”) available at your local grocery store. We should be thankful, really, that we have oh-so-many opportunities to stimulate the national economy, right?

my sister definitely deserves to win! we had our very first 1/2 marathon plans for september but she ended up breaking her foot on her way to a wine festival. she wasn’t even tipsy yet! she’s been stuck in the house, depending on others for rides since she can’t drive, and missing out on a lot of cool things to do. i really think she needs some sunshine!

My husband, Carter, deserves the most special cereal mix there is. He has been by my side for 14 years (we met in middle school) as I have struggled with and finally overcame an eating disorder. He loved me inside and out for all those years, and ultimately, he is the one who became my role model for healthy eating and balance. Pretty amazing, since he used to be overweight and I’m the one who inspired him to eat healthy! He began to eat healthy and lost weight, but he did it in a balanced, realistic way. It’s so neat that the tides turned and he became the teacher! Now he teaches me how to cook, how to achieve balance, and he encouraged me to go to an R.D. who helped me to fully recover! Carter continues to support and praise my progress every day.

When I was little, my dad used to “consolidate” the sad little crumbs of cereal that remained in our almost-empty boxes of Frosted Flakes, Froot Loops, Captain Crunch, Cheerios and Cocoa Puffs. Kath, while your cereal mixes are works of culinary art … these were just nauseating. I think it would be hilarious to let my dad pick out his own mix!

I think my brother deserves to have his own cereal mix. He is having a bit of a hard time right now and he loves his cereal, so I think this would add a little spark to his day!!

Thanks for the opportunity!

My friend Vicky was just diagnosed with aggressive inflammatory breast cancer. There’s not a lot I can do to help her through this, but the fun of getting to design her own cereal mix would be a nice distraction from a really rough time.

I think my mom deserves a special cereal mix because she is always getting “bored” with cereal in the mornings and when she was battling breast cancer this past winter/spring she often ate the same cereal for lunch and dinner too, so i think a new cereal mix would be just the thing to beat her boredom!

I’ve heard a lot of blog rumblings about meandgoji lately and I’d like to vote for my very sweet and special Mom to receive a mix. She has IBS and has been suffering a lot more than usual from it.

Thank you!

I would love to win so I could let my dad mix his own cereal. He eats several bowls a day and frequently mixes different healthy cereals (as well as yogurts, berries, milks, etc.) to create his ultimate bowl. When I was little, he worked a ton but we’d always have breakfast together and call it our little “date.” It’s still a tradition and every time I am home, we like to sit together and eat breakfast and drink coffee together. I am too poor to send him a present for Father’s Day and was going to resort to a card. This would be the ultimate gift!

My husband really deserves a special cereal mix. In fact, he would probably love KERF Mix. Why? Because he is in an EGGO waffle with PB rut. He needs a way to break out.

Great job on the cereal photo – I love blueberries so it immediately caught my attn.

My grandma would deserve a special mix just for her. She is a self declared cereal addict, but also an amazing woman. She lives her day to day life alone in florida and thinking about her having her morning breakfast alone is somewhat heart breaking, but she’s happy and never would want anyone to think otherwise. I know that a mix that was was made especially with her mind would give her that little joy in the morning :)

My mom deserves a mix! I am living abroad for a year, and at the moment I need some help/guidance…which she still provides thousands of miles away. It feels so great to have a mom who always has your back and is there to help and give advice. I don’t know what I would do without her. She is so selfless and picking out her own cereal combo would be a good self-indulgence she rarely does!

My sister deserves a Me&Goji mix. She was just married last year to a terrific guy…who is also allergic to nuts! So it’s sometimes hard to find a good breakfast that’s full of healthy fats, protein, fiber, etc. without the addition of pb (which my entire family was practically raised on…haha.)

It would be awesome if she could create her own mix so she can have a healthy breakfast that keeps her full and content.

(p.s. LOVE your KERF crunch creation…those bananas are too enticing! :D )

My husband is definitely deserving of such a treat! He is so wonderful and has stood by me on my quest to be healthier – mind, body & spirit. He hasn’t complained one bit when I’ve tried new (healthier) dinners or asked that we leave a little later so I could get in a quick work out. But, he is also on a path for being in better health, and I think he would love to try this (as would I!).

She has also made friends and dropped her unsocial life for a new kickin’ social life. She also hopes to begin volunteer work at the local children’s hospital. I gave her a personalized granola mix (mismygranola) for mother’s day and she loved it. I know she would enjoy this!

He’s been alternating between the same two granolas from Costco for as long as I can remember and I’m always asking why he doesn’t change it up. His answer, “I’ve never found another granola I like as much, and it’s not like I can make my own easily!” He likes granola so much, he craves it for dinner sometimes – it’s the closest he’ll come to having breakfast for dinner ;-)

I think my roommate Andi deserves some of this! She’s always trying to eat healthy, but she just told me the other day when we were discussing bugs how she found part of a roach in her cereal box and she’s been leary of purchasing cereal ever since! So I think she deserves she bug free healthy cereal :P

My husband would be the person that I would say deserve his own cereal mix. He works had every day to provide for us – first at his “real” job as a project manager for a commerical contractor than on our family blueberry farms. His days span 4:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Then he still comes home and helps with the laundry, taking care of the puppy, or rubbing my back because I pulled a muscle.

And on top of it all, he is finding ways to eat healthier – you can imagine the type of food that is eaten in the construction field – and workout. I am so proud of him and so grateful to have him.

My girlfriend Pennie would love to try this! I hink she deserves it for being such a great friend and inspiration. She has gotten me to completely change the way I eat and treat my body –even gotten me to exercise! I have always been “thin”, but I was so unhealthy. I had really high cholesterol, and high blood pressure, before I was evn 40! Proving that you really are what you eat…

Pennie convinced me to eat “clean”, the best I can and she has been a great motivator. I even made myself a banana, blackberry, almond milk, and SPINACH smoothie yesterday — NEVER in my former eating life would I eat spinach let alone drink it.

Would love to share this special treat with Pennie as a “thank you” for giving me a healthy life…

I have to go with the majority (and cliche) answer of my mother! She is very hardworking, and often does not take the time to prepare healthy, nutritious meals for herself. By creating her own, nutritious cereal from me&goji she would be able to get a great kick start to her day!

My parents deserve their own me&goji mix. They recently decided to take control of their health – they started eating much healthier, exercising regularly, and have lost almost 40 pounds together, all while my mom has been coming back from surgery on her foot.

I think my boyfriend deserves some me&goji cereal because he has lost 46 lbs since the beginning of March! He’s still working on getting to his goal weight and learning what foods are best for him. I’ve been trying to help him learn to pick healthy foods and he’s getting there. But he still relies on me to make sure we’ve got good stuff for him to eat. I know he would really enjoy getting to design something healthy to snack on.

My husband and I are recent granola fans. I think my husband deserves this granola because he is not a big cereal fan like cheerios/ raisin bran etc, but granola is something he enjoys!!!

my aunt- she has been a rock for me the past few years and such a great source of support. She was diagnosed with cancer last week and starts chemotherapy today- she is 6000 miles away from me I live in the UK and she lives in the US) but something she could fit tasty delicious nutrition in with low-volume might help her keep her strength up during treatment <3

My Mom really deserves to mix up some super cereal. When I was younger, I remember thinking that it was really strange that my mom would sometimes eat cereal for lunch or even dinner…Now, I know why…because it’s awesome!!!! My mom works super hard, and is always taking care of everyone else before she takes care of herself. I would love to surprise her with this!

I think my mom deserves this cereal because she does so much for my entire family. She cooks for the entire family and makes sure we always have nutritious meals in the house, and is always on the go so sometimes she doesn’t have enough time to eat a proper breakfast (it usually is just a bowl of cereal). Maybe something as nutritious and yummy as this would be a treat for her :)

My best friend Jenn deserves the mix of cereal. I don’t get to see her as much since we live 13 hours away from each other (I had to miss her wedding and now I’ll miss the birth of her baby) but just recently I went home for vacation and saw her a ton. We decided we both were unhappy with our weight and eating habits and decided that even if we were apart from each other we’d find a way to help each other out. She suggested showing our food diaries to each other so that the other person can see what was eaten and spot bad trends that the other might not. I created a WordPress for it, and it’s really helping, and we’ve only been going at it for a week. I know it won’t go to waste on her because she is a cereal fiend, haha!

During my formative years as a child, I grew up as an only one. My mom eventually remarried, providing me with a step sister. Now, again, at the age of 25 I find myself sisterless — technically. However, I have been blessed with two amazing friends; both of them only children. We’ve joked around calling ourselves sisters, but only recently I’ve come to cherish the fact that, yes we really are sisters.
Two days ago I found out that one of these girls’ parents are potentially splitting up after 27 years of marriage. She is absolutely emotionally defeated. Originally, she sent me an email asking for prayer for her family and that she had the most devastating news. It was at that point I felt the big sister in me emerge.
It’s hard living two hours away from her. I can’t just rush to her side. I sent her three emails, called her once and commented on her Facebook status, just so she knew I had been thinking about her. I cried for her and prayed for her. I couldn’t concentrate at work. That is, until she finally confided in me what was happening. For all I knew she or someone she was very close to was dying.
Though we’ve been friends for nearly 9 years, I’ve never felt that bond – that sisterly bond. It’s made me reflect on my friendship with my two best friends. It’s a friendship that I never want to take for granted.
I think my friend is in need of designing a me&goji mix. For one it would take her mind off of things, if only for a few minutes. Also she is an organic food loving – marathon runner. This ordeal has upset her so much she has decided not to run the Portland marathon. Maybe with a little cheering up, she’ll change her mind.
P.S. Sorry this turned out to be an essay. But, thanks for this contest! :)

My best friend Beth who lives 488 miles away deserves some love in the form of amazing cereal for a thousand reasons.
Since explaining all of them would take too long, top 3 are:

1.) She talked me into signing up for a spring marathon which we just finished May 26th!! She made a PR of 4 hours!!

2.) She LOVES healthy food. Combine this with her intense passion for baking and she is a crazy cookie, cake, muffin, you-name-it she’s-made it officionado.

3.) She is practically my twin and since I know I would love this a ton, I know that without a doubt this would make her month.

He has multiple sclerosis and he was saying last night how it is becoming harder and harder for him to mentally follow along at work and do the things that he used to do. This is the first time in a long time that I have seen him close to tears and I didn’t quite know what to do. I know something like cereal wouldn’t fix things but he is a cereal lover and I definitely think the gesture would cheer him up! Being a college student, I don’t have quite the disposable income to do this myself, so a coupon would be amazing!

i think my fiance deserves a special cereal mix.

He’s currently in grad school to be a teacher, so he takes classes 2 evenings a week, student teaches 5 days a week and works 3 evenings a week (to help pay for it all). it’s a crazy schedule, and we end up eating a lot of smoothies for breakfast and lunch.

it would be awesome if, as a pick-me-up, he could have a bowl of HIS OWN CEREAL for lunch while he’s student teaching. i know he’d definitely include golden raisins (which i hate).

plus his birthday is coming up tomorrow, so this would be a fabulous birthday surprise.

I would select my brother for deserving a special cereal mix. He was laid-off from his IT job since August 08, but has remained extremely positive throughout the past 10 months. In fact, when he’s not job hunting or going on interviews, he’s at either two places: volunteering at a local food shelter or at the local gym. In regards to his own health – he’s trimmed over 25lbs off during this time by doing it the right way – exercise and eating wholesome foods. I think the customized cereal would give him a big boost for his hard work!

My best friend deserves a treat and could use a sweet surprise!
She’s a devoted teacher who is off for the summer, caring for her 18-month-old daughter and 8-week-old son!
She looks fantastic, but she’s a little blue about the post-baby weight (which, really, is just a little teensy bit because she was so great about nutrition while she was pregnant.)
Some days, she doesn’t have time to eat.
She grabs a handful of whatever she’s giving her daughter for a snack.
I know she would love some mommy-only KERF Krunch to give her something nutritious and quick to give her some extra fuel for nursing her baby.
I’d love to see her get the surprise, and I’d forgo the one you’d send me to someone else who could use a surprise! (And, then, I’ll buy some, because it looks YUMMY!)

Yum. Cereal!
I think my husband needs some cereal mix… his parents kept a huge “cereal library” of some of the most sugary, icky cereals… seriously, like a whole pantry+ full. And since marring me he hasn’t complained (alot), but doesn’t have much options besides the healthy, healthy stuff! I’m sure he’d load it up wit chocolate-y options if he had a choice! :)

I would say my mom definitely deserves a special cereal mix. For someone who always has a busy day, she only starts off with a scant bowl of Total or Special K. And she just had an operation to remove a polyp yesterday, so when she gets out of the hospital and comes home she’ll need more than Total to regain her old strength.

My best friend Stacy is addicted to 2 things: granola and trail mix.

My WONDERFUL HUSBAND! He is a true “southerner” (I am too but I don’t eat like it!) and I have worked so hard over the past 2 years of our marriage to get him to understand that:

– corn doesn’t have to have fat back grease in it to taste good!
– beans don’t have to have ham/ham bone in it!
– bacon doesn’t belong on everything!

You get the idea. He’s in great shape and all his doctor’s visits come back perfect, so it’s been REALLY hard to steer him in a new direction. I think it would be fun for him to make his own cereal, and maybe “forget” it’s healthy too!

Thanks!

I think this would be a great opportunity for her to create a nutritious mix to start her day! I would also love to create a mix too – I love cereal and being creative! Putting the two together sounds like a lot of fun ;)

I had already decided to say my Mom before I clicked on the comments-looks like a lot of people thought the same! I’m choosing my mom because growing up, she never let us buy a cereal if the first two ingredients were sugar. So our choices were certainly limited, but a lot healthier! Back then I didn’t really appreciate it, but now I’m glad my Mom got us started on healthy choices early–even if we didn’t realize it! So I think my Mom deserves a very tasty and healthy cereal that she wouldn’t be able to find in a regular grocery store

My best friend from graduate school and I go out to brunch every weekend. We have been friends now for almost 7 years and were eachothers first friends out west. Both being from the east, she is moving back to DC on wednesday and it would be great if we could create a cereal to “share breakfast even when we are apart” sort of thing!

My dad deserves a special mix. He is an amazing man who has turned his life around health wise after a diabetes diagnosis. He just ran his first marathon last fall and has plans to continue them at least once a year. Also – he loves breakfast food, oats etc so a special mix for him with plenty of fiber and whole grains would be perfect!

awesome giveaway! my husband definitely deserves a cereal mix. the last few months he’s had to do tons of medical tests and they’re still trying to diagnose some mystery stomach condition. as a result, he’s had to severely limit a lot of foods-including a lot of foods he enjoys! believe it or not, cereal is one of the few things he can still eat pretty regularly without hurting. he’d LOVE to design his own!

I would have to say my dear friend, Sandi, deserves to win this fun treat. She has been everything you would ever want a friend to be and then more. I recently was diagnosed with a life changing condition that taught me who my real friends were, the lovely Sandi was completely and utterly there for me. She has been a foundation to keep me going, someone to lean on when I can not walk and exemplifies all that is good in people. Above all us, she keeps me laughing in the toughest of medical times and that girl loves her some food:)

Hi Kath,
I believe my mother deserves her own special cereal. She has started the Fage, berry, and cereal love in my hometown and is the best role model for living a healthy, full life. These things aside, my mother is full of love for her family and will do anything for her kids. Several years ago, she nursed me back to health when I had anorexia and no amount of treatment could keep me safe. She prepared all my meals to the painstaking detail of my dietician’s instructions and sat with me for hours each day while I struggled through them. She did all of this on top of raising three other children, one of them having Down Syndrome. My mother is amazing, and is so deserving (not to mention that she jokes all the time about never having won anything in her life!). Thanks Kath!

Much like other comments I’ve read, my momma definitely deserves her own special mix! I’ve been trying to be pretty healthy for the past couple of years now, but just moved to North Carolina, way way way far away from my fam. My mom has been struggling with weight, health, and dietary issues recently. I feel like a good, healthy, yummy cereal mix will really give her a boost she needs. Especially since her baby is too far away to give her the love and encouragement she needs :)

My sister definitely deserves to create her own mix, and here’s why:

Several years ago she became very sick and experienced organ failure. She spent about 6 months in the ICU and several months after that in recovery, learning how to walk and getting back her coordination. She became very weak during her coma and the many months she sat paralyzed in hospital. Since then, she has fully regained her strength and has committed herself to living a healthy life. She is one of the healthiest eaters I know and she LOVES breakfast. She always makes sure she gets a good balance of everything in her diet. I know she would really enjoy this!

If my father were still alive her would deserve this. He was the original cereal mix man. He would always start with Raisin Bran, to this he would add: some kind of fruit, (rhubarb sause being one of his favorites), always a part of a banana, some kind of nut, peanuts or maybe slivered almonds, then he might add some rolled oats or wheat germ, depending on what my mother had on hand. We would just watch this and wrinkle our noses. However as an adult I am just like him. Loving all the textures and not wanting to just settle for one. So I was taught by the master I guess. He was 83 when he passed away two years ago. He never added peanut butter that I know of, but I think he would have liked that.

I started losing weight successfully after being overweight my whole life about 2 years ago, and while I get to talk about healthy foods and stuff on the phone with her, it would have been so much cooler to go through the process with her here.

Anyway, she hears me talk about granola ALL the time, and it would be so cool to be able to send her something like this!
