New gluten-free products come on the market all the time now, and we sample our way through as many as we can to bring you products we trust and stand behind. Sometimes they fall flat. Sometime they’re fine, but less than remarkable. And sometimes we nod our heads as we chew, knowing something good just fell into
The Superfood Cereal line from Vigilant Eats inspired a lot of head-nodding.
One of the hardest transitions for those adapting to a gluten-free lifestyle are the quick fixes and snacks that can be grabbed on the go; try a 7 Eleven stop on a road
trip and chances are you’re not going to find a fortifying snack to keep you going for
300 more miles. Granola bar, snack packs and even granola have to be given a thorough ingredient-check before you can safely indulge.
So these products across the board for taste, convenience and overall super-food health.
Loaded with only the good stuff, the four varieties use gluten-free oats, oat flours and a touch of natural palm sugar. Cacao nibs and a little cinnamon contribute to the
warm and ever so slightly sweet combo, with more good stuff tossed into the four resulting flavors; Espresso Maca Mulberry, Goji Cacao, Coconut Maple Vanilla and Macha Double Chocolate. On top of that, all ingredients are organic, vegan, kosher and certified for containing no GMOs.
What we particularly loved about them is that, despite being an oat cereal, the cereal is not heavy. It’s filling and comforting, but the smart portion and light-handed use of natural sugar don’t make you feel like you’ve pounded down a dessert in breakfast’s clothing.
And as far as ease goes – there is a collapsible spoon inside the cup! You simply add cold water to mix with the hemp milk powder already inside (or add your desired milk of choice for some extra creaminess) and stir away. Or, if you’re like us and tend to shiver constantly four months of the year, add warm water for a comforting treat.
