Activity Being Avoided: …I forget

I have a lot of dietary restrictions and food allergies; add that to the choice to be vegetarian, and it can make it difficult to eat, especially in restaurants. People often narrow their eyes and phrase it thusly: “What do you eat?” Recently one person (the bouncy, happy sort) bleated, “You must have lots of great recipes!”

No.

The person then inquired, “What’s your favourite recipe?”

Here you go:

Cornflakes

Ingredients:
• cornflakes (1 cup, they say, is a serving size; I was going to say this sounds a little skimpy, but it turns out that’s approximately what I put in The Bowl.)
• brown sugar (white sugar is plebeian and has no grit)
• lactose-free milk (skim or 1% on a regular day; full-fat with a dash of lactose-free cream on a truly sucky day)

Possible Additions:
• sliced banana
• a few large strawberries, sliced—if it’s a day when strawberries can be handled

Variations:
• Replace the cornflakes with 1 cup of cooked oatmeal. Feel good about cholesterol and embrace one’s Scottish heritage—or sing Corries’ songs between bites.
• Replace the cornflakes with puffed rice. Ignore all comments about the diet of maggots.

Goes Well With:
• whining: There’s nothing to eat…
• attitude: You can’t make me cook, damn it.
• general self-pity: No body loves me and it’s unethical to eat worms.
• tepid lactose-free cocoa
