Hey there! Hope the title caught your eye because you all know I am pretty much grain free these days so how in the heck am I eating cereal?
Let me first just explain that cereal has always been comfort food to me. Some people crave mac & cheese but I crave a big bowl of cereal with ice cold milk. When I was a kid we ate Kix, Raisin Bran, and Chex cereals ALOT! These were considered the “healthier” kinds and I know my mom bought these believing they were truly better (because thats what the label read!).
I have to admit now that I know how highly processed most (if not all) cereal is, I have NOT ate regular boxed cereal in YEARS!
I don’t buy it and its not even an option for my own kids.
The 3 top reasons I stay far away from boxed cereals are…..
- Most are LOADED with GMO’s. If you are not aware genetically modified foods wreak havoc on your body accumulating in the system. Many products labeled as “natural,” actually contain ingredients from genetically modified corn, soy, canola, and sugar beets and toxic pesticides. These are especially damaging to children and their growing bodies.
- Boxed cereal is NOT really food. Cold breakfast cereals are produced by a process called extrusion. Most of the nutrients are destroyed in this process, and any essential fatty acids are broken down and denatured making them useless to our bodies.
- The proof is in the INGREDIENTS LIST. Just pick up any cereal box and read the label. Don’t let the companies fool you with labels claiming all natural or high in protein. Its all GARBAGE!! Even THIS DAD was outraged to find toxic chemicals in the ingredient list of his kids favorite popular cereal.
So knowing all this I have to say when I was strolling down the aisle at my local Better Health Store a label caught my eye. Bubba’s Fine Foods Grain free, Gluten Free, Paleo, No refined sugar CEREAL! With flavors like chocolate , vanilla, and apple I was SOLD!
I have to say this granola lives up to its name and then some!!!
The ingredient list is simple , clean, and full of good stuff!
- non GMO coconut flakes
- egg whites
- madagascar bourbon vanilla extract
- sea salt
The company’s MOTTO I love the most.….
” We said no to artificial anything. Refines Sugars. Preservatives. Cheap Oils. Gluten. Grains. Oats”
Hooray! I can eat cereal again and you can to!!! REAL FOOD cereal!
Go Bubba’s Fine Foods, you ROCK!!!!
Be Well! 🙂
