“There’s gotta be something more. There’s gotta be more than this. I need a little less hard time; I need a little more bliss…” – Sugarland
This morning, after running with Reader Grace, we found ourselves strolling through the aisles of Publix during the 7:00 hour. Maybe it’s because this takes us back to the days of running in the store before high school to get supplies and food for SGA meetings and the like, but we’ve always loved Publix during the 7:00 am hour. People are in workout clothes; people are dressed for work. Everyone is just getting ready to face the day.
So, with the aforementioned pensive mood, it was in the cereal aisle, as we reached for the 1,000th box of Strawberry Fields by Kashi of 2009, we realized…there has to be something more. We cannot eat one more bite of Strawberry Fields with frozen blueberries. We just can’t. As good as Strawberry Fields and the Streamline in ’09 has been (and we’d recommend it to anyone else), we’re ready for something new. So fair readers, two part question today…what new, healthy cereals do you recommend (and we have to have a fruit pairing. So do include). And what do you propose for the 2010 slogan (something with a little edge, please)??
