How to Loose Your Appetite

I have enjoyed eating a fresh peach with some yogurt and granola for lunch until I ran out of my homemade granola. I was happy to see that I had a box of store-bought granola, so I pulled that out of the cupboard, happy that I had a back-up plan. It didn't expire until 8-25-10, so it had plenty of time left. What I saw next was enough to take my appetite away for the rest of the day!! This is what the box looked like from the outside:

This is what I just happened to see before I opened up the bag:

 Right in the center of the picture!

In case you can't tell what it is, here's another shot:

 It has legs and wings!

If you can't quite make out what it is, it's a moth! And it has relatives! Crawling around like they owned the bag! In a bag that is air-tight! It made me think, how many bugs are in the packaged foods that we buy, and how many do we eat if we don't look it over for bugs? All I could think of for the rest of the day, was, what if I had not seen those moths crawling around and had opened the bag and sprinkled them on my yogurt. Ugh!

The box said there were 4 grams of protein per serving, but they should up that number. I prefer getting my protein from more reliable sources!
