Vegemite kid

Many years ago I used to have vegemite toast for breakfast everyday. Two slices of toast with vegemite... every day.

Then I started reading stuff, and listening to other people, and I changed my habits and started eating cereal and milk for breakfast. For a long time I did this, but I was never really satisfied. There is just something about that salty, yeasty, vegemitey taste that cereal cant live up to.

You see I was under the impression that having vegemite toast for breakfast was unhealthy and was contributing to my waist gain :-D

So I ploughed through bowl after bowl of cereal, never feeling satisfied, always left wanting something else. Because I was feeling unfulfilled by the cereal I looked in the cupboard for other things, eating my way through until I felt satisfied.

Not to mention the other side effects... which I wont because well... yuck who wants to mention those things?

So last week I said to my husband I think this cereal is bad for me. He in his loving attentive way continued to spoon cereal into his mouth, raised his eyes from the newspaper for a millisecond and said "well dont eat it then"

And just like that 14 years of self imposed vegemite toast denial was over.

This morning my son came out to breakfast commenting that my toast smelled so much better than his cereal - I just smiled and pointed to the toaster - that's my boy!

Thanks for visiting my blog.
I've never had vegemite. I may have to try it someday.

I LOVED the Time Traveler's Wife. That is one of my all time favorite books.

I can't live without my Vegemite! Alaskaboy and I buy it from an online shop in a 2.5kg bucket. :)

Vegemite must be an acquired taste....I tried it when I was in wasn't something that I could eat again...let alone every day! :-) Good for you for taking it back!!
