Pour Youself A Great Big Bowl Of Victory!

In these trying times we need to go back to basics. Find the honest goodness of the best things in life. Basic elemental thing, like barley, oats, flax, nuts and fruit.

Forsake those fancy, foreign breakfast foods that have expanded the waist lines and clogged the arteries of the baby boomers. Who needs breakfast tacos and scones and triple shot, vanilla lattes?

You need the food of the Greatest Generation, not Generation X! The food that powered America from the depths of the great depression, and launched Liberty Ships full of men and supplies to defeat the Axis Powers! Take that, Tojo! Same to ya, Mussolini! We eat the food that made America great! Because we eat:

Trigreyhound's Miracle Muesli

Trigreyhound's Miracle Muesli is a wholesome blend of whole grains, fruit and nuts that will stick to your ribs all morning long after a tough pool workout or a pre-dawn trainer session. Trigreyhound's Miracle Muesli has the complex carbohydrates and protein to speed recovery during an Ironman buildup. It has the healthy fats to keep your ticker ticking. And it has all the fiber you need to stay regular.

Very regular.

Get a large, tupperware cereal container.

Fill 2/3 full with equal parts organic oats from the bulk aisle, Grape Nuts and a hearty, whole grain flake cereal such as Nature's Path Organic Flax Plus Multibran.

Throw in a handfull of dried fruit like dried cranberries, blueberries, or raisins. 'Cause the blueberries are freakin' awesome.

Thow in a half handfull each of unsalted sunflower kernels and almonds and you'll eat like a Mouseketeer on Prozac!

Put the lid on the container and adjutate or spin until well-mixed.

Serve with some ice-cold vanilla soy milk and what do you have? A big chilled bowl of Americanism--mmmmmmmm. Tastes like freedom!!


The bowl might even play "Pocketful of Sunshine" as you eat it in your sunlit office at 7:30 in the morning. :)

Make up a batch and take it to the office. It will last you all week. You won't need sugary snacks or greasy breakfast tacos. Miracle Muesli will power you through your morning and your lunch time workout. It will cure whatever ails you.

It's up to you. Pour yourself a great big bowl of victory, or be like everyone else and settle for a failure pile in a sadness bowl.

America has spoken.

No true American would drink soy milk. What are you? A hippy or a fur-in-ner? You should be eating good ol' american stuff: bacon 'n eggs, Cap'n Crunch, and a coke for breakfast. Follow that with a cigarette, then lie on the couch watching game shows while you clean your gun.

you forgot mention to be in close proximity to a bathroom within the follow hour. Oats, nuts, flax, fruit, bran? Hello BM!

That recipe sounds fantastic. I'm going to have to try that out. And Jane's comment cracked me up..!

That video about a failure pile in a sadness bowl? Hilarious! And really, sadly, pretty true, eh?
