Salad Cereal

Say whaaa?

Here, allow me to (try to) explain my strangeness…

Farmers Market Haul

Up until a couple of weeks ago, I was managing to come home each weekend with just the right amount from the farmers market to get me through the week…
you know, for all my salacious salads.

Veggie Kabobs

But then the man-friend just HAD to start cooking up some glorious food,Β sending me home with a gazillion leftovers…I know, such a travesty πŸ˜‰

Farmers MarketSo there I was, with a crisper drawer full of fresh summer produce slowly dying in front of my…which IS a travesty! While I absolutely LOVE my salads and have been enjoying one everySINGLEday, there are only so many you can put away in one week before your inner compulsions start to come alive again…

Cereal Killer Spoon

Fifty Shades of cereal? πŸ˜‰

Zucchini Cereal

Monday there was zucchini cereal.

Carrot Cereal

Tuesday…carrot cereal.

Beet Cereal

Wednesday…beet cereal.

Salad Cereal

And finally, Thursday…the (what the hell) SALAD cereal!

Now before you guys start turning up your noses and checking the phone book for mental health treatment facilities (wait, do people even still use phone books?), hear me out!Β For one thing, I only used mild-flavored veggies…really the only flavor that came through was from the beets…AND under my Blend-iful cereal lies this baby…

Toasted Coconut Yogurt

Which could in fact make a stick taste good!

Don’t worry…I haven’t gone THAT far…yet! πŸ˜‰

Salad Cereal with Cinnamon

And of course there was aΒ dash of cinnamon involved! πŸ˜‰

Strange But Good S2TT

You’re scrunching up your face, aren’t you? Fine, judge me all you want…I don’t care! If you need me, I’ll be hangin’ with my other weird foodies over at Laura’s house blog…where she just happened to get a little strange with veggies TOO!

What’s the strangest thing you’ve eaten lately?

Any big plans for the weekend?

  1. I love it!!! I’m totally having veggie cereal tomorrow. You know I love all of those as greek protein bowls or smoothies… why NOT add cereal to that? And cinnamon makes everything taste like dessert anyway. Genius.

  2. Allie says:

    Well, now I feel less weird for loving zucchini in my oatmeal. Or, really, zucchini with everything right now.

  3. OK I’ll admit this DOES sound crazy but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to give it a whirl πŸ˜‰

  4. Lisa says:

    You’re amazing, I love this!
    And now I totally want to make some for….Dinner perhaps?
    I also love your spoon, that is kind of the best thing ever.

  5. I’m so glad someone else appreciates the wonder that is veggies + yogurt. Back in college I used to ‘steal’ tupperwares full of grated carrots and eat them in a bowl for breakfast with yogurt and boat loads of cinnamon. Never failed to hit the spot!
    Strangest thing I’ve eaten lately? Hm….I’m still a fan of nut butter on everything. Ever tried tuna and peanut butter? πŸ™‚

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Haha, love it!! And yes, I HAVE done tuna and peanut butter…I thought it would be an epic fail, but I was surprised with how well they went together…but really, what does peanut butter NOT go with?! πŸ˜‰

  6. You should at least give a shout out to the stock boy you accosted to get that yogurt πŸ˜‰ haha kidding…ummm…
    Seeing as that I have zucchini and carrots on my oatmeal every morning, this sounds perfectly normal to me! πŸ™‚

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      And THAT is one of the MANY reasons why I love you! xoxox

      PS, stock GIRL…er, old lady…whatever! πŸ˜‰

  7. Girl, you’re crazy ;P But I can’t judge – carrot cake cereal sounds mighty fine! I don’t know about zucchini though haha.

    Strangest thing I’ve eaten lately… hmmm.. for some reason I decided I wanted a grated carrot, raisin and almond butter sandwich the other day and it was SO good!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Aww, c’mon!!! It’s like zucchini bread!! Haha!

      Oh man, that combo sounds GREAT! I’ll have to try that!

  8. purelytwins says:

    mmm love this πŸ™‚

  9. Oh my goodness, this is genius. Due to my crazy sweet tooth I will likely never hamper a sweet bowl of cereal with any veg except maybe winter squash or sweet potato, but genius nonetheless.

  10. Lol love this it is so you!!!

    Don’t think I’m game to try it yet but they don’t sell that yoghurt here in Australia to make it taste like crack πŸ˜‰

    This weekend I’m eating a big bowl of bolognaise, drinking some red wine and watching the Tour de France since my boyfriend is a huge fan of it and it starts tonight.

  11. That actually sounds delicious. I already love carrots and zucchini cooked into oatmeal, and trying it on cold cereal sounds great!

    This weekend I’m seeing a friend’s play and doing a mini photo shoot for my website.

    Have a good one!

  12. You are too much! πŸ™‚

  13. Veggies and cereal sound interesting together, but I agree that the coconut vanilla yogurt would make just about anything and everything taste good!

  14. I’ve made “zucchini bread” oatmeal before, but I can’t say I’ve ever put veggies in my cereal! That yogurt flavour is seriously amazing though – I totally agree that it can make anything taste good. I wish I’d bought more than 1 of them when I was in the US! πŸ˜›

  15. I have to admit, I’m scrunching my nose a little :-p

  16. I like when you lose your marbles, not that I’m suggesting you’ve lost them. Alright I totally am, but it still makes me happy. I thought grilling my lettuce was weird, but you have me beet (get it, oh brother).

  17. That’s hilarious and actually not a bad idea!
