Gluten Free Custom Choice Cereal

June 15th, 2010 at 7:01 am by Lisa - Gluten Free Foodie
I am really into cereal these days. Maybe it has to do with the change of the season or the fact that it is so quick and easy to make. If you are like me, a good Gluten Free cereal is hard to find. I like my cereal to have good nutritional value, good protein, fiber, low fat and above all flavor.


No worries, I recently found a cereal that allows you to pick and choose the ingredients to create your own special mix. The company is called Custom Choice Cereal and it is made in a dedicated Gluten Free facility. The really fun thing is that when you go to the website you literally pick the base of the cereal, add the ingredients like dried fruit, nuts or seeds. Then just before you wrap up your order you get to name your Custom Choice Cereal! - I was really creative with my name ... I selected Cinnamon Granola made with brown rice, I added goji berries, cherries, almonds and organic coconut chips. I almost had a hard time choosing because I wanted it all. If you add more than 3 ingredients it really starts to turn into a granola or trail mix. So order one cereal breakfast mix and another that is loaded up for a trail mix. I like mine with coconut milk or dry out of the bag. It is a great way to make sure that you are getting ingredients from a dedicated gluten free facility and that is tested with the EZ Gluten testing strips. The website also has nutritional label info that updates as you add each ingredient. How cool is that?

I had a really great conversation with Hajo Engelke, the founder of the company and was thrilled to hear that he decided to start this company for a friend from college that was Gluten Intolerant and had a hard time finding good, healthy cereal. The company is based out of Durham, North Carolina.

I love to hear the stories of companies that realize there is a need for better quality Gluten Free food for a friend or family member. I love to hear that there is support for us Gluten Free Foodies, that is why I support those companies.

When I purchased my cereal, I was amazed as to how quick I received it. I got it within 3 days - NC to WA! not bad! It was also fun to see your label and the sturdy resealable packaging. Very special!

Be sure to go to there web page to find out more about the company and to create your Custom Choice Cereal today. Become a fan on Facebook to get updated info on specials.

Favorite Creamy & Crunchy Blueberry Breakfast

June 5th, 2010 at 7:31 am by Lisa - Gluten Free Foodie
I used to love Grape Nuts and yogurt for breakfast.
Didn't you?
Well my friends, I have found that wonderfully creamy
and crunchy Gluten Free and dairy free combo again!

and


Wow! I think it is a better combo than what I remember and longed for ... little crunchy round pieces that keep their crunch until the very last bite. They have a very similar flavor to grape nuts, but no nuts. Perky's Crunchy Flax is made with sorghum, ground flax seed and sweetened with fruit juice and honey! I have tried it with various non-dairy alternatives like coconut milk, hemp milk and chocolate hazelnut milk - all very good ... but the combo with the yogurt is the perfect blend of creamy and crunchy!


So Delicious Yogurt is available in a variety of flavors including blueberry, my favorite, raspberry, vanilla and more. Look at the website for more info Turtle Mountain So Delicious.

Look for both products at your favorite Gluten Free Market or grocery store.

Light, fast and easy ... now I am ready for this sunny day but just had to quickly share this with you!

Enjoy!

Lisa
