It's not about the date on the milk

Tuesday, October 18, 2011

Note to cereal / oatmeal eaters: Even if the date for the milk's freshness is still within range, you won't enjoy breakfast if there isn't enough of it.

Another note: If you just did a lot of rowing and strength training, that container of milk just might seem heavy enough to fill the bowl... but it's worth double checking.


Ah, well. I had leftover quinoa and lentil salad for breakfast instead. I covered up the oatmeal (it will keep in the fridge) and will have it tomorrow. With coffee. Because I am buying milk after work.


Today is already SO much better from a planned workout perspective. I rowed - the most since my knee surgery; woohoo! - did my Power of 10 ST and started Week 4 in the 200 Squat challenge. As I mentioned to my SparkPal BUBLEH, I'll need to keep away from my desk today lest I stiffen up and become one with the chair!


Make it a great day, SparkFriends. It's cloudy, grey, windy and VERY ACTIVE here today!!

    Sounds like you have had a busy morning already!

    In one way it IS about the date on the milk--I had my Kashi Go-Lean cereal this morning, and my soy milk was kinda lumpy. Luckily I had another carton in the fridge. I think it was just icy--my fridge gets too cold, but I wasn't taking any chances.

    I don't put milk on oatmeal anymore. A little bit of brown sugar is all I need. Raisins or cranraisins are a nice mixed in treat if I have them.

    In fact, I was going to have some cheerios, but I think I'll have oatmeal for breakfast right now. Glad I read your blog this morning.
