Oh let's set cynicism aside and enjoy a bowl of oatmeal or Cream of Wheat. With blueberries and brown sugar.

Grape Nuts, Boss, i want Grape Nuts . . . and i would love to have the old-fashioned variety, not the "softened" Grape Nuts they sell these days.

we have an "Amish supermarket" near us. Its a giant building with all natural light domes (no electric lights) There are also giant fans that are pneumatically driven by propane burners outside.
Anyway, the market sells cereals that are just over the expiration date, and, as any American knows, there are so many presevatives in the food to "ensure freshness" that these things have an indefinite shelf life. So they are a moth over expiration. The big thing is that we get these giant boxes of oats n nuts n **** , for which we pay like 75 cent. We stock up on all sorts of packaged stuff there. Its loaded with lots of English as well as Amish people.
We see RVs with California license plates and tourists from all over. In the summer the market runs out of stuff everyso often and they are always filling shelves from bulk carrier trucks that are constantly unloading on their docks.
Wish Id of thought of this.

Cheerios, under a buck for a front end loader sized box. There are some Foreign labels, like Canadian French and Spanish. I one bought a Russian cake mix. My wife added fresh baking powder just to insure that it would rise properly. (Betting that the expiration date would affect the cake- rising chemistry)

I love Cookie Crisp but $4.50 for a box is just a little much for me...I only get it when it's on sale.

Cereal, if considered by the per-pound-price, is more expensive than steak.

FM, the Amish in our area have no such store, but if you want bargains, just look for the Amish women in the Walmart, and follow them around. They can smell a deal from a hundred yards away.

Exactly, Regis. I eat a similar combination (always including frozen blueberries). I expect it to add some years to my life. If it doesn't, no matter; it SO delicious.

I eat a mix of berries daily. Since I began doing it, my joints are more flexible and my arthritis has gone away (or at least hid).
The mix is heavy on the red raspberries, but includes blueberries, strawberries, blackberries and often cranberries.

Edgar, that's also good for your urinary tract. Throw some walnuts in for omega 3 oil and you'll an even better and tastier meal (as far as I'm concerned, that is).

I eat about two ounces of walnuts an hour before bed time. Makes me relax and sleep.

Really! When I want a little help sleeping, I drink a mexican tea called tila tea (te de tila). Very relaxing. What about a small bite of turkey breast?
