Breakfast of Campions



Slim Fast is back on the shelves after a ridiculous two-month recall. I don't know the details of the recall, something to do with nutrition, but I have unconditional love for my breakfast and its absence has only made my heart grown fonder.

Speaking of champions... we had a cake decorating contest at our cub scout Blue and Gold banquet last night. Here's Gus with his cakes (which are the spitting image of pinewood derby cars).



Other, more awesomer cakes won the contest. But, hey, we're all participants, right? Participants are number one!!

I've never tried Slimfast. I always thought it seemed yucky. Is it truly tasty, and does it help you get slim fast?

Cute cake!!!

I prefer the nasty aftertaste of the Kirkland brand "weight loss shakes" to the nastier aftertaste of the Slim*Fast shakes. Just personal preference. And even then, it's only used on a "I'm in a hurry yet am starving" basis. I must eat my Honey Bunches of Oats. Daily. Sometimes twice daily. One time thrice.

Nice cake cars. You shoulda done a hovercraft. Or Peeta.

Slimfast does seem gross but I'm on a diet so if you recommend it maybe I'll try it.

Apparently...

"The problem with the Slim-Fast products that are causing the recall are that these cans could possibly be contaminated with Bacillus cereus. This is a bacteria, or micro-organism, which (according to Slim-Fast) "may cause diarrhea and possible nausea and/or vomiting."

So you get both the effects of slimfast and the vomiting, double weight loss.

Luckily for me, I prefer the generic brand. Not so thick.

Cake contests ROOL!! Did crazy lady show up?

You've gotta try the Kirkland brand ones. I think they taste better and are much less expensive. I did quit drinking them after my trainer friend told me they have all kinds of "crap" in them. I refuse to give up my diet coke though.

Guz' cake looks like he's been taking lessons from "The Ace of Cakes" (the food channel). It's a great show. And Slim Fast? Really? Not a big fan but then that's why you look the way you do and I look the way I do. I need posts more often from you. Get on it girly.
