So, are you saying we should avoid cornflakes, or just start eating the box with milk?

What else can wake me up in the morning? I don't drink caffeine, and apples don't sound good, actually breakfast lately doesn't sound good in the morning (which is very odd for me), so is that because I am getting old? I need some health help here! We are trying to stick more to your diabetic diet around here, trying to shed some pounds if you know what I mean!

We had pizza last night for dinner. Looks like we're definitely contributing to that statistic!
