The cupboard is bare

My least favorite part of returning from an extended vacation from home is buying groceries. We’ve spent the week or two leading up to departure trying to use everything up, and then the first trip when we get back is the basic milk/juice/bread/eggs kind of thing, and then I finally I have to face it: It’s time for me to go shopping for real. That overfull grocery cart is depressing.

I’m mitigating the pain by restocking our cereal online. (What? It’s cheaper this way, plus it doesn’t take up all that room in my cart, leaving more room for gluten-free cookies produce. Yeah, that’s it.)

Here’s three of our favorites sporting excellent prices at Amazon right now:
Kellogg’s Fiber Plus Cinnamon Oats Crunch 3-pack for $7.60 delivered when you buy via Subscribe & Save.
Kashi GoLean Crisp! Berry Crumble 4-pack for $10.61 delivered when you buy via Subscribe & Save.
Kashi GoLean Crunch! 6-pack for $15.91 delivered when you buy via Subscribe & Save.

There. I just marked something off my to-do list. Only… 99 more items to go.


  1. But those aren’t GF, are they?

  2. Nope, but I hardly ever eat cereal. My kids eat the Fiber One and both my husband and my teen like the GoLean stuff.

  3. Elizabeth, sadly no.

    We just figured out that I have gluten sensitive children. What a PIA this is!

  4. DW, when I do want cereal, and I want something cheap/readily available, I tend to buy Chex—they have lots of certified GF varieties.

    I also make my own granola with certified GF oats. If you need more ideas (for cereal or anything else!) shoot me an email. Happy to help. 🙂

  5. Thank you — just shipped a package off to the local food bank.

  6. For GF cereal, we eat Chex and some of the EnviroKids ones….although we aren’t huge fans of those flavors. We would love your GF ideas for cereal and anything else! You’re the prettiest!
