Mini Wheats

I am so bummed! I just found out that Kellogg's Organic Frosted Mini Wheats have been discontinued. I knew I hadn't seen them at the store for awhile, but I thought maybe just the store I regularly go to stopped carrying them. Frosted Mini Wheats were one of my favorite cereals growing up and I stopped eating them years ago because they contain gelatin. The organic ones didn't have gelatin and they tasted awesome. I am now on the hunt for a gelatin-free frosted wheat cereal, but I reckon I won't find much.

I did stumble upon one of their new products though - UNFROSTED Mini Wheats. They appear to be vegan, and you can always add some of your own sweetness to it if you need some.

So sick

Shorty after my last post, I started my journey into gastrointestinal hell. For the past week I have been so insanely sick. I started feeling nauseous on Wednesday night. Thursday morning I woke up and I couldn't be too far from a bathroom. Friday I was able to go to school somehow. Saturday was bad again and my boyfriend convinced me to go to Urgent Care. I got an IV because I was dehydrated and a shot in my ass to help stop my nausea. I ended up sleeping most of the day and watching Anchorman and The Devil Wears Prada at night since I couldn't really go anywhere. Sunday I managed to go to a friends house to work on a project but the ride over there was awful. Yesterday I skipped school because it was too long of a wait to be near a bathroom again. I did manage to go to work but it was pretty unpleasant.

Needless to say, I have basically been eating toast with earth balance for the past few days. I can't wait until I can eat a real meal again!
