Little Teddies for Little Tummies

I know I’ve said it before, but I have a small obsession with the gourmet food aisle at T.J. Maxx and Marshall’s. I always find the coolest foodie fare (for cheap!) that I cannot buy at other places.

Yesterday I picked up a box of organic apple cinnamon Healthy Times Teddy Puffs cereal.

I was snacking on it while Ryan and I made dinner last night. When he asked me what I was eating, I told him apple cinnamon cereal. He picked up the box and then asked me whether or not it was cereal for babies.

“No,” I said before examining the box a little closer.

The slogan on the box made me rethink my answer: “Little Teddies for Little Tummies” … I definitely do not have a little tummy (I really think I could eat an entire half-gallon of ice cream without a problem), but these little teddies sure do taste good! Turns out cereal for little tykes is pretty darn delicious!

What was your favorite cereal as a kid?

I loved Corn Pops. Other favorites were Honey Comb, Froot Loops and Lucky Charms.

(If you’re interested, back in September I posted about the best and worst childhood cereals. Click here to have a look to see how your favorite ranked.)


Today I included my kid-friendly cereal in a yogurt bowl with fresh strawberries.

I also picked up the place mat in the above picture at Marshall’s yesterday. That store has everything.


My workout today was quite random since I was feeling very antsy and didn’t want to stick to one machine to crank out some cardio.

My cardio hodgepodge looked like this:

  • 15 min. stair master
  • 10 min. run (1.0 incline, 6.5 pace)
  • 5 min. incline walking (7.5 incline, 4.2 pace)
  • 20 min. elliptical

I read Clean Eating magazine while ellipticizing (Is that a word?) and left the gym craving roasted chicken with potatoes and green beans… at 7:30 a.m. 🙂


Hey, good news, Monday is over! 😀 Hope your Tuesday is off to a great start!
