What do you put on popcorn?

Frank's Red hot Sauce and Kernel's Nacho Chilli Cheese Popcorn seasoning! Yum!!
Or on another level: Turmeric, Cumin powder, Paprika, Salt all pulsed in a processor - I add this to the popcorn about 30 seconds before the entire thing is ready (I pop mine with Olive Oil over my gas stove).

Best Earl Grey

Lady Grey is my favourite!!!!!!!!!! The citrus notes pair beautifully with the other spices in the tea, and Twinnings is the only brand I've tries, but why switch? It's WONDERFUL!!! : )

what kind of snack at 11pm

Usually one of the following along with a BIG mug of Herbal Berry Tea:

(while my kettle boils the hot water for my tea) Spoonfull of almond butter (while my kettle boils the hot water for my tea) on a graham cracker, 1/3 cup of cottage cheese with fresh ground black pepper, 1/2 cup whole grain cereal with milk, A glass of Vanilla Soy Milk (Warm or cold), 1/4 cup oats with a little milk and crushed walnuts. The key is to eat slow, and sip on the tea between every 1-2 bites and you will be satisfied for sure!

Mixing Cold Cereals -- Yea or Nay?

I LOVE mixing cereals! I can't believe that people would actually be against it???
I do realize that some cereals hold up better/longer in milk than others, so my mix-in combos are tried and tested. I LOVE Nature's Path Cereals, and the fact that they come in Ecopacks make them slightly more affordable. I love the Flax Plus line of this brand, and they all hold up the same when milk is added to your cereal bowl, so go ahead and mix any of these together. Also, Nature's Path's Gluten Free/Wheat Free cereals are crunchier in general, so my favourite mix is usually: 1/3 cup Gluten Free Whole O's, 1/3 cup Heritage O's, 1/3 cup Millet Rice Flakes - Fruit Juice Sweetened (sometimes I add 1/3 cup of Gluten Free Corn Flakes - Fruit Juice sweetened to this as well, but these do gety soggy quick, so I do a search for them in my cereal bowl and eat em up while the rest are still "soaking").

My main reason for mixing is to get the best combination of healthy fats, good carbs, various grains (from the above mix of mine, you get Oats, Corn, Brown Rice, Millet, Buckwheat, Amaranth and Barley) and a good mix of various Proteins and Sugars. I don't think I can EVER go back to having just one type of cereal in my bowl - so blah!! Lol
