Adventures in weight loss, cooking and life

Getting to goal, one choice at a time …

What’s in the box?

The mysterious package that waited for me.

When I got home from the Boyfriend’s last weekend, a big, brown box waited for me.

Because I’d just gotten off work, it was late — or early, depending on your perspective. It was after midnight, anyway.

At that hour, my brain wasn’t firing on all cylinders. “What’s in there?” I wondered aloud. “I haven’t ordered anything recently.”

So that's what was in the box — my cereal prize pack from Attune Foods.

Curious, I ripped off the tape and lifted the box’s flaps. This greeted me.

Yep. It’s my Best Body Bootcamp prize pack from Attune Foods. The box held three boxes of cereal: Erewhon (pronounced air-wahn) Strawberry Crisp, Rice Twice and Crispy Brown Rice.

According to the note that came in the box, Erewhon Organic cereals are “Real food in the center aisle.” They contain no synthetic additives or preservatives, no artificial colors or flavors, no hydrogenated oils and no refined flour or sugar.

What they do contain is pure ingredients (organic whenever possible), natural flavors and sweeteners and non-GMO ingredients.

Sounds great, right? What’s not to love about a brand that gets its name from a 19th-century novel. Author Samuel Butler’s Erewhon was a utopia where each person was responsible for his/her own health.

“We strive to make that possible in a packaged food,” the note says.

I can’t wait to dig in!

Count 'em ... One, two, three boxes of cereal.

Losing weight is easy …

... if you're in a coma, maybe. Most of us have to work at it — every day and every minute. It's not easy to make the right choices, to drink water instead of (diet) soda, pick the grilled chicken sandwich instead of a burger or choose to get up and get moving instead of lounging around in bed. After too many months of making the wrong choices under the guise of dabbling with paleo eating, I've re-joined Weight Watchers (online). My choices may no longer be low-carb or Whole30 or paleo, but the concept is the same: I'm still getting closer to my goal weight one choice at a time.
