FISTFUL OF FIBER

Do you ever have those moments when you remember something you haven't thought of in years, decades even? Through an accidental FreshDirect order, I ended up with an original box of Shredded Wheat, the BIG KIND. I had completely forgotten it used to only come in this size. Nowadays we have tons of high fiber transfer options at breakfast, but back in the early 80s this was it. And of course I had to giggle when, taking in its size and shape, that there was something symbolic going on when the product was first developed... Which reminds me I really need to use the bathroom now.

  3. At the Bone house we used to pour boiling water over them, let it soak a bit, plate over the bowl to drain the water, and then add a little bit of milk and LOTS of brown sugar. It'd be a nice warm, sugary pillow of fiber!

    Memories.
