Grapefruit on cereal? Rip's Big Bowl

I read the Engine 2 Diet awhile ago and recently watched the Engine 2 Kitchen Rescue which features healthy kitchen ingredient make-overs for 2 families and some great looking recipies.  One of the "recipes" I never got around to trying before was "Rip's Big Bowl" for breakfast. I mean, it's just cereal, right?  But now that I've made it, I can see why it's a favorite.  It's got a lot going on.  4 kinds of cereal, dried fruit, fresh fruit including grapefruit*, and non-dairy milk.

The cereal part fits perfectly into a wide-mouth pint sized mason jar to easily transport to work.  It's about a 1/4 cup each Grapenuts, Uncle Sam's Cereal**, bite-sized Shreadded Wheat, and rolled oats.  The ground flax seeds, and raisins also fit in.

The grapefruit is kinda weird, but has the tangy tartness and sweetness similar to a strawberry, so I guess isn't that odd.

It's definitely a big bowl.  I'm having trouble finishing it.

*I forgot to pick up the grapefruit, but figured I'd try it out without it because grapefruit on cereal sounds weird anyway.  When I got to work, there was a grapefruit on my desk.  I still haven't figured out who gave it to me, but apparently the Universe provides. 

**I'd never heard of Uncle Sam's Cereal, but I found it in the natrual food section of the normal grocery store.

Hmmmm.....not sure how I feel about grapefruit and milk in the same bowl. Everything looks great though!
