Life Hack #1: How to Eat Boring Cereal

I started doing this to wean myself off of sugary cereal.  I would combine sugary cereal with one that was a little bit more healthy (Honey Nut Cheerios in combination with regular Cheerios) and over time would gradually shift the ratio from about 50-50 two gradually having less and less Honey Nut Cheerios.  Since our house is now as gluten-free as possible, I am doing the same thing with Chex.  It is the most boring cereal imaginable, and I don't add any sugar to it at all, but by mixing up the flavors it is slightly less boring.
