the main chow hall has been out of Kashi cereal for the past 2 days. i've had to resort to eating Special K, which does not have a fraction of the fiber that Kashi packs. i inquired about the sudden lack of Kashi, and i was told that all the Kashi was near it's expiration date. it was thrown out, and they will not order it again, as the demand is low. the 2nd chow hall (near my office) didn't get the Kashi destruction order. they still have a big stash, so i started hording. seeing that i've eaten 2+ bowls of Kashi every day that i've been here, i need to stockpile ~86 bowls in order to get through my last 6 weeks.
the lack of edible breakfast options is incredibly frustrating. occasionally there is edible fruit. sometimes they have yogurt. they ALWAYS have corndogs, chicken cordon bleu (a glorified hot pocket), or microwaved pizza pucks.
corndogs? do adults eat these things? for breakfast? you can justify serving corndogs for breakfast, but no high-fiber cereals? you'll serve corndogs for breakfast, yet tell us that we need to keep fit? why not take away the unhealthy food? i'm not allowed to run on certain roads, out of safety concerns...why can't the same safety standard be applied to breakfast corndog consumption?
