    Default Raisin Bran

    I like Raisin Bran Flakes for breakfast and I find Kellogg's, Post and
    Richfood (generic supermarket) quite good. Today, I tried Trader Joe's.
    Well, I have accidentally chewed on cardboard and I was reminded of that
    and they also soak up milk rapidly and get soggy.

    I buy the Walmart Great Value extra raisin raisin bran. I eat it out of the
    box most mornings while I'm on line, like now. I eat more than a 1 lb 4 oz
    box a week. It goes with my fiber mania. Lots of fiber seems to keep me
    free from diverticulitis pain.

    That's interesting. I was hospitalized for diverticulitis. They told me to
    avoid high fiber cereals.

    I've not read that. Who knows? Seems to be mixed messages about
    diverticulosis - some say avoid seeds, popcorn, etc. - others say it
    doesn't matter. I avoid.

    I occasionally buy Bran Flakes. If I want raisin Bran I add so raisins,
    but they are also good with other fruits, like bananas or berries.

    I've tried other fruits than raisins but I only really like sliced
    bananas or possibly other dried fruits; apples, apricots, sliced figs
    and craisins taste good to me.

    Divertiulosis is different from diverticulitus. Popcorn sent me to the
    hospital.

    There is some ingredient I don't like (HFCS? I don't recall) in
    the normal brand cereals, so I have occasionally tried more
    healthful versions. They are just as you describe. Hideous.

    I'm going to try making some granola this week. No bran flakes, wheat
    flakes, corn flakes, or other flakes. I have some honey but I'm going
    by WF so I may get some agave. Anybody have an opinion on how that
    would work in granola?

    Somehow, I like to enjoy any food that I eat. Is that too much to ask? :-)

    I guess people have their preferences. There are some cereals that I
    like to be soggy and others that I prefer to het before they get
    milklogged. Bran Flakes are somewhere in the middle. I love Shredded
    Wheat, an dthe soggier it gets the better. I like Frosted Flakes, but
    prefer them with some crunch.

    Agave would work just fine. Here's the recipe I made in the
    restaurant. Nowadays when I make it for myself I add more seeds
    like pumpkin seeds, lightly ground flax seeds, chia seeds, sesame
    seeds and sunflower seeds. I want more seeds and nuts than oats. I
    use gluten free oats. I also use coconut oil and add some unsweetened
    dried coconut to the mix. I still use honey but I cut the brown
    sugar basically out.
    I think I used maybe 1/4 cup unpacked of brown sugar.

    granola is so easy to make at home I don't know why everyone doesn't
    do that.

    Thanks for the link, but are you suggesting replacing all the honey
    with agave, or just part of it?

    Also, I'm curious why you call coconut oil "primal".

    I just discovered why agave syrup is a boutique item. I'm going to use
    honey and a little molasses.

    That sounds more like some sort of trail mix.

    Either or on the agave. Use what tastes good to you. Coconut oil
    is a favorite oil of people who follow paleo/primal ancestral diets.
    It has lots of medium chain triglicerides and is quite good for
    you......plus it tastes great. My batch of granola made with
    coconut
    oil is really tasty.

    No, it's definitely a granola. There's plenty of oats in there and
    the texture and crunch is very granola. I just prefer more nuts and
    seeds for the food values rather than the grains.

    On this topic, yesterday I bought some cat food for my cat and the

    Yep. It turns out that cats, along with all other mammalian carnivores,
    are descended from the now-extinct miacid, who lived in Canada back during
    the miocene.

    So maybe the "Ancestral Diet" for cats should be poutine.

    However, this was duck-based cat food, which still sounds pretty Canadian.
