Go Lean!


Recently I've been concerned about the quality of food we've been eating. If it lacks vitamins and has grease and sugar we're there, baby! But, I have been concerned. My supply of Cadbury mini eggs has long been exhausted so now seemed like the perfect time to perk up our diet.


I hadn't given it that much thought when I saw it there on the grocer's shelf. Kashi Go Lean, crunch. It had my daughter's name right there on the label. It must be a sign. I grabbed it read the nutrition information and angels sang. 500 mg omega three, 15 g of whole grains. 32% of the RDA of fiber, plus vitamins and protein.


I brought it home and commenced to noshing. It was pretty good. I did feel like a horse crunching that oats & honey mix they eat, but still it was okay. So I ate it for breakfast, then lunch. The next day the same routine, breakfast then lunch. Crunch crunch crunch. Then it hit me. A health food epiphany? No, the fiber. It hit me. Kashi Go Lean made me go lean All...Day...Long.


It's good stuff, just start out small. GO Lean!

Wow... I don't think I've ever been first before on your blog jean knee!!
I tried some Kashi stuff one time... tasted like cardboard. I didn't consume enough to cause any trouble...

Bee said...

Ha ha ha!

I bet your butt is feeling it!

Just so long as you don't turn into a horse. If you get the urge to gallop anywhere except the direction of the bathroom, then you should be worried ;-)

Adeline's Shabby Cottage said...

At least it won't get soggy in milk. You may end up like cupcake though....body parts flying off!! Whew!!

Jean Knee said...

neigh, I won't

Mr. Cocka-Doodle-Doo said...

How many times must I tell you, jean knee? If you want healthier vittles, do what I do: grains and seeds with the occasional insect thrown in.

Delicious, nutritious, and you won't make the bathroom smell like that again.

They should put that disclaimer on the box for people who suddenly decide to go all healthy all the time.

jennyonthespot said...

That stuff rocks... though it is super crunchy... I have had to give it up while I have braces. It is so packed with proteina dn fiber - which is really hard to find in granola/cereal!

Stacey said...

I like mine doused in chocolate with sprinkles on top.

No Cool Story said...

It sounds scary Jean Knee.
I'm just going to wait a few more days and see how you are doing.
K?

No Cool Story said...

I wonder what would happen if you combined it with Activia.

Don't you wonder Jean Knee?

Jean Knee said...

something very, very bad


hey let's just add some exlax cookies to the mix

Dan said...

I hate all healthy food, it all tastes like dog ass.

Hey It's Di said...

It does make you feel like a horse as you are eating it and then it gives you the trots later:D

I'm reading this as I chow down Burger King Cheesy Tots. Yeah, I know they probably aren't all that good for me but that's me.

I decided to do the fiber breakfast thing and the salad lunch thing a while back. Well you can only imagine what I was doing at dinner time every night. . that didn't last long and I was back to my evil eating ways.

Stop Lean said...

I got a bad case of the Leans

Mr. Cocka-Doodle-Doo said...

So, Dan...(ahem)...have you, er, actually tasted the posterior regions of a canine, then?

I mean, how else would you know...well, how it tastes?

Mr. Cocka-Doodle-Doo said...

(I'm just curious.)

Mr. Cocka-Doodle-Doo said...

And it seems appealingly kinky.

Jean Knee said...

don't answer him Dan, he's a fraud

Klin said...

I laughed so hard that Mr had to hear the story, too. I jump in the shower after I pour milk on the Kashi Go Lean. It's a bit easier to eat after it has some time to soak up the moisture. More like a cow then than a horse. LOL

How come Dan didn't answer Mr. CDD's question? Just curious.

The horror! said...

This post is degenerating into a horrible horrible thing.

How safe are the streets now?


More at 11.

Dan said...

I'm a dog owner and sometimes she puts her ass on my face and I accedently lick it, hasen't this happened to you Mr. Cockadododo ?
If your answer is no, then it hasen't happened to me either and I was just kidding.

Bee said...

For the record, I just want to say that Dan is not really my brother. He was found hiding in a dog pound.
I always wondered what he was doing there, now I know.

Mr. Cocka-Doodle-Doo said...

I am appalled.

Mr. Cocka-Doodle-Doo said...

And yet, intrigued.

Mr. Cocka-Doodle-Doo said...

Dan, have you ever fed your dog some Kashi and THEN...well, you know?

Cupcake said...

OoooOOOoooOOOO....

Jean Knee! I have come back from the dead to tell you:

REPENT! Your blog is attracting some very fowl characters!

Gotcha! said...

Wait...what?

ELASTICWAISTBANDLADY said...

Papi is a Kashi addict.

I've never been there but I'm sure that the Kashi Addict Treatment Hospital has more toilets in it than actual rooms...or beds....or people....

ELASTICWAISTBANDLADY said...

I only buy Kashi on clearance.

I'm a health food cheapazz.

Frosted Flakes Mind Control Center said...

Kashi Customer Testimonials said...

Honestly, Kashi tastes like eating my brother's scab collection with milk pured on top of it. However, me and my family lived on the street until we found Kashi. I built an entire 4 room home using nothing but Kashi boxes.

Thanks Kashi!!!

Toilet Paper Marketers Secrets said...

We've hidden the secret alliance between Kashi cereal and toilet paper manufacturers from consumers.

This information could get you or anyone else who reads it, killed, and your body dismemebered, wrapped up in toilet paper, and shoved into little boxes of Kashi for immediate disposaL.

You've been warned.

Jean Knee said...

OH THE HORROR. THE HORROR!!

Brian o Vretanos said...

Here's a review from a satisfied customer. At least he could still type even if he hurt his jaw eating the stuff...
