    Cereal - Do you love it or hate it?

    I really dislike cereal. It tastes gross without milk, but milk makes it soggy. It is one of those foods that I hardly ever eat. In fact, the last time I ate it was at someone's house who had different cereals for breakfast and I didn't want to be rude, so I choked it down (hope they don't read this). My husband and kids eat is as a meal, though.

    I love cereal! I eat it every morning for breakfast and sometimes in the afternoon or evening as a snack or light meal. When I can't sleep at night I often get hungry, so I get up, have some cereal, and go back to bed. Usually I can sleep after that. To me it seems a little strange that someone would have a deep distaste for cereals, but there are other foods I don't appreciate, so I guess to each their own!

    I sometimes consume cereal both with and without milk. I add milk if it is part of a meal and just plain if I want something to snack on.

    I like cereal, and I eat it a few times a week. Sometimes I eat it for a snack when I can't find anything else.

    I like a bowl of cereal in the morning. It does depend on the kind of cereal of course. I like ones with grains such as Kashi.

    I don't know if oatmeal is considered cereal but I do eat this almost every morning.  I add fruit, nuts, flaxseed or hempseed to make it even more nutritious. I do not add any milk unless it is almond.  If someone offers cereal for breakfast (it is a kindness in general), they might consider serving muffins, whole fruits, bacon, or some type of bread (toast, etc.) to complete the meal.

    I love cereal. When I was single it was a dinner time staple for me. Unfortunately, I tended towards the ones with less nutritional value and more taste. I guess I still do, but I'm not eating it as often as I used to. Still, it makes for a wonderfully easy meal when you get home late from work and are just too tired to cook a meal.

    I have one cereal, and only one, that I can actually like. I'm not really a breakfast person, although I force myself to eat it to jump start my metabolism for the day. I eat Kashi's toasted berry crumble every morning in vanilla almond milk.

    I prefer eggs and turkey sausage for breakfast. The protein gives me more energy than most cereals.

    cereal is yummy and if you eat it right away it doesn't really get soggy in milk. Add some fresh fruit or nuts to it...it makes a difference, depending on the cereal you're eating.

    Thanks everyone for all the great input. I agree with brenda. I prefer something like eggs and turkey sausage or turkey bacon. However, I know I'm in the minority in not liking cereal. By the way, I have about six types in my pantry even though I don't like it because my family loves it. I also do enjoy oatmeal. I don't really count that as a cereal, though.
