Welcome to 2010--Era of the Three Course Cereal Meal

I am a big fan of cold cereal. I could pretty much eat it for every meal. The only problem with cereal is that sometimes after a cereal lunch or cereal dinner, I’m left wanting.

If eaten in the traditional way, cereal can be a bit un-satisfying. However, after years and years of exhaustive trial and error research, I think I’ve found the solution: I call it cereal courses. Instead of just sitting down and having a single big old bowl of Lucky Charms, you have three smaller bowls of different kinds of cereals.

Now before you just go off on your own and start mixing cereals willy-nilly, please note that it's not quite as easy as it seems; there's a bit of an art to it. You must have the right kind of cereal for the right course. For example, for the appetizer, I recommend something light and somewhat bland to prepare the palate---like Cheerios, or Rice Chex. For the main course, I suggest something filling, with a lot of fiber, but not too sweet---like Shredded Wheat or Raisin Bran. Then for dessert, naturally, something sweet and flavorful, like Cocoa Puffs or Fruit Loops. I just had a cereal course lunch, and can I tell you, I’m quite satisfied---full, but not stuffed, happy, but not manic.
