Mom and I went shopping on Sunday. I found myself really checking the labels, like should we buy natural peanut butter or regular? Mom let me decide on some things. I got the natural smooth peanut butter. Then Mom had me decide between a cheaper loaf of regular bread or lower calorie bread with more fiber. I got the low calorie bread even though I don’t like it as well. It’s not unbearable, though. The calorie savings is worth it.
We decided that from now on we’re not going to buy any cereals that have less than 3 grams of fiber, because the fiber helps fill you up. This means no more Golden Grahams, Cinnamon Toast Crunch or Reese Puffs. But we still can get Frosted Mini Wheats, Cheerios and Raisin Bran. We also got several different kinds of Fiber One cereal. I don’t like the one kind, the twigs. But I sort of like the chocolate ones and the honey clusters.
It’s more fun to eat foods that I helped pick out!
