Feelin’ Fantastically Festive

by Courtney on December 17, 2010

Happy FRIDAY everyone! Hope you’re all feeling fabulous today. :-D

I, on the other hand, am feeling Fantastically Festive!

Last week, I was contacted by Alexander from me & goji, asking if I would be interested in designing my own custom cereal mix.

OH MY GOSH, YES! :shock:

Me & goji is the first custom cereal & granola company where you can design your own cereal from 60+ all-natural ingredients, and even name your creation. The cereal then arrives in a Cereal Capsule, designed for portability and keeping your mix fresh.

When I first started browsing through the website, I was completely overwhelmed with all the choices that were available! And if you know me at all, you know that decision-making is not my strong suit. ;)

There is an abundance of super foods, organic ingredients, and purely decadent ones, too. So finally, after what seemed like almost an hour (!!!) I had my custom cereal mix:

And it was even handmade by Adam’s Mom. ;)

Of course, I had to dig right in…immediately.

Check out those cocoa almonds! How’s THAT for a nice little treat in your cereal mix?? I wonder if they’ll make my milk all chocolaty like my Cocoa Krispies used to when I was little?!? :-P

I’m really looking forward to incorporating it into my yogurt bowl that I have planned for lunch today…

Mmmm, Mmmm, MMMMMM! :-D

Now I’m off to work…but hey, it’s Friday, it’s Pay Day, AND it’s a very SPECIAL DAY for a very special guy in my life…… ;)

Questions for the Day:

What’s your favorite cereal?

What would you put in your own custom cereal blend??

Holy yum! That’s awesome. Hmm, my custom cereal blend, this is tough because I love everything… lately I’m mixing Kashi Heart to Heart w/ chopped dates and dried cherries, and then adding PP spice.

My favorite cereals are any kind of granola and Kashi’s 7 Whole Grain Puff Cereal – it’s the perfect canvas for mix-ins, like fresh fruit!

Lucky duck! I wanna make my own cereal!

I would definitely have chunks of granola or oat clusters of some sort. I’d also add dried blueberries and cranberries and maybe have a hint of maple somehow

Kashi Honey Sunshine always put a smile on my face. Fond memories of Cinnamon Toast Crunch (though I avoid it now).

Love your blog by the way, nice to see that someone else went through the same struggles in their past!
