Tales from Residency: Balanced breakfast

Attending: "You need to eat healthier."

Kid: "I eat healthy."

Attending: "What do you have for breakfast?"

Kid: "Frosted flakes."

Attending: "Well, instead of frosted flakes, you should have bran cereal. Or if not bran cereal, then you should have Oreos for breakfast."

Kid: [looks shocked]

Me: "Do you mean... Cheerios?"

Attending: "Oh. Right."


  1. I could totally get behind Oreos for breakfast. Mmmm.

  2. Yes, why is that not already a cereal?

  3. My husband has Oreos for breakfast, frequently. He claims that in Italy, people have cookies for breakfast "all the time."

  4. Apparently that is/was a cereal according to google. Probably not as bad once they took out the trans fats.

  5. I used to eat Cookie Crisps. Probably just as bad as oreos.

  6. My idea of a 'balanced' breakfast is a doughnut (apple fritter love!) on top of my cup of coffee, because my other hand is carrying other stuff.

  7. Bahaha! Hilarious. Cheerious made their debut in South Africa about two years ago, and I've been addicted to them ever since.
