I Ate a Bowl of Cheerios Today

So....are we going to talk about the fact that General Mills essentially glutened....everybody?

I'll admit it, after years of eating every single flavor of gluten free Chex, I jumped on to the Cheerios bandwagon without a second thought.

Seriously. I didn't even pause for a second when I saw them on the shelf at my local grocery store. I couldn't wait for that first bowl. My first bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios in like 8 years. It felt nostalgic...it felt normal!



Head first y'all. I jumped in to that first box head first and I didn't look back. I can't even tell you how many boxes I bought, how quickly I went through an entire FAMILY SIZE box. It's a tiny bit embarrassing.

Did I eat a box that was contaminated?

I HAVE NO IDEA!

At the rate I went through boxes, it's possible that I did. It's also possible that I didn't. I haven't had most of my typical "glutening" side effects. My digestive tract hasn't been tip top since giving birth to Mason, so I can't use diarrhea as an indicator. (Is that TMI? Sorry!) But I haven't been bloated and we all know that gluten gives me bloat like no other.

So I don't know. I'm guessing not but at the same time, does it really matter?

I mean, how long did it take for a mistake to be made? And how long until another is made?

Will I eat them again?

Ugh.

I will. I know I will. I feel like I shouldn't....and then I ate a bowl this morning!!

So what about you? Will you continue to eat Cheerios?
