Talk about shocked!
…because I can no longer tolerate eating Post’s Spoon-Sized Shredded Wheat anymore (my detailed story on this issue is posted here: https://trishparr.com/two-ingredient-gluten-free-pancakes/#GMO-Sensitivity).
I now have this opened box of cereal sitting in my cupboard waiting to be disposed of.
One morning, while getting breakfast ready for my two, four-legged “kids”, while at the kitchen sink, a squirrel in the tree just outside my window, caught my attention.
It’s the same squirrel I have been feeding peanuts to, and she looked sooooo hungry sitting there sooo cute-like.
Having gone through all the peanuts, I remembered the partial box of cereal still in my cupboard, so, I figured, why not!
I took a large handful of cereal and placed it out on the railing of my backyard deck for easy access for the squirrel.
She was off and running to what I had put out in no time… and I was happy I could help her out again.
I thought she might have been barking at the squirrel and I wanted to correct her behaviour (I do NOT condone my four-legged “kids” chasing ANY wild animals), so I went directly to the room she was in… and that’s when I noticed two beeeeautiful Blue Jays that were flying and landing in my backyard.
Seems they’d been on the railing too, checking out the cereal I left for the squirrel… BUT …not ONE piece of Spoon-Sized Shredded Wheat had been eaten.
YIKES!!!! What does that tell me? 😐
Then, after posting this story Your Food Is Poisoning You on Facebook, a “friend” let me know that Monsanto uses Roundup.
WHAT? Noooo way… YEAH?
When I did a Google search of “Monsanto uses roundup?” (without the quotation marks, of course), I received ALL sorts of evidence that she was RIGHT!
Here’s some of THE best detailed stories that I found in my search results:
Is it any WONDER I had severe case of diarrhea (and gas too, but I failed to mention that previously <blush, blush>) after eating this cereal? WOW!
And, I Thank God (literally!) for social media and TV (Dr. Oz!) or I might have wasted my doctor’s precious time trying to resolve something as basic as this.
Should I EVER decide to return to eating ANY breakfast cereal in the future, I shall offer it to the squirrels first. If they eats it, 🙂 then I’ll KNOW it’s safe to eat!
