    I've never heard of anyone eating cereal with Milk on it and not drinking the Milk.

    Milk is probably one of the few healthy things I eat.

    Well, back when I was a milk connoisseur, yes, it was the best part of eating cold cereal.

    But now, no, because I don't drink milk anymore.

    And that was the biggest positive change in my diet I have ever made. Turns out I was allergic to the stuff. I had been drinking a quart a day for 40 years. I gave up all dairy (a few years ago, at the recommendation of a friend) and felt like a new man in about three days. Now, I indulge in a little cheese now and then but no milk, ever.

    You milk drinkers should go dairy free for two weeks. You might find out that you, like me, have an allergy to the stuff. If not, nothing lost and keep slurping it down.

    Exactly how did I feel after giving it up?

    Well, I could breathe easily through my nose for the first time ever. It was like I had a slight cold 24/7... which I accepted as normal. Among other things, that made flying so much better. I have never been able to equalize the pressure in my ears without much effort and agony. Now... it's no problem at all. Amazing. Oh, and my wife tells me I hardly snore anymore (she is very happy about that), so I sleep better and am much more rested.

    Try it... you might be surprised. I was.

    Not only "waste not, want not". It tastes great.

    I haven't eaten cold cereal in years, but when I did I always drank the milk.

    Like said above, I was taught as a kid not to waste it and with sweet cereals it was like dessert.

    I eat cereal daily and I never leave a single drop of milk in the bowl. That’s the best part.

    The best is the milk after a bowl of Cocoa Puffs! I might need a box soon!

    I still like cereal and I mix plain Cheerios with store brand honey nut Cheerios that only has 8 grams of sugar and it sweetens the leftover milk and makes it taste good whne you drink it right out of the bowl.

    But it's all about the proportion of cereal to milk and if you do it right there won't be much milk left over in the bowl and your cereal won't get soggy either.

    These are things we learn as adults.

    I'm a LACTARD so no milk for me. in my youth, you'd better freaking believe I'd drink it... after having 4 bowls and topping the milk off each time... ah to be 13 again.

    about 1 time a year I will get a box of cinnamon chex and coconut milk and eat the whole box in one sitting. usually after a night shift. sleep follows within 15 minutes, and methamphetamine could not prevent it's onset.

    I don't remember a waste not, want not lecture from Mom but I drank the milk then and do so now. Besides, I have to have something to wash down the vitamins.

    Yes, but only if I beat my boy cat, Jack, to it. He can get quite pushy. I usually leave him some, though. F9F3CBF6-FA99-439E-955F-5641FC56C12F.jpeg

    As a kid if there was a lot of left over milk I would add some more cereal to it.

    Lately I haven't been eating cereal or anything for breakfast.
