Has it really been over a year since I shared a Food Find? Really?! Oh my we must remedy that!
A few weeks ago I posted about trying some Ezekiel Bread for the first time. Then strolling through the grocery store I stumbled across this…
I was actually on the hunt for some Grapenuts when I found it so I decided to give it a shot.
The ingredient list is quite impressive… (I removed the word organic from most ingredients to make it easier to read)
Sprouted Whole Grain Wheat, Filtered Water, Malted Barley, Golden Flax Seeds, Sprouted Whole Grain Barley, Sprouted Whole Grain Millet, Sprouted Whole Lentils, Sprouted Whole Soybeans, Sprouted Whole Grain Spelt, Sea Salt.
With all the junk that’s normally in cereal this was refreshing to see. So was the nutritional information.
I like that’s it’s high fiber and high protein. A nice combination. For my fellow Weight Watcher friends, one serving is 3 old WWP/5 new WWPP.
I enjoyed mine with some almond milk (my new obsession) and blueberries (another obsession).
The serving size is 1/2 cup (57g) and it’s a nice size. Especially when bulked up with some fruit. As for the taste, if you like Grapenuts style cereals you’ll like this. It’s stays fairly crunchy yet absorbs milk nicely. the grains give it an almost nutty flavor and the different size pieces was a nice change from the pretty standard Grapenuts.
The only problem I have with this product is the price. I shelled out 6 bucks for a 16oz box. Most cereal is pretty expensive but that just seems excessive to me. Why does good for you normally mean expensive?? Ugh. It’s infuriates me!
But I digress. Overall the cereal is tasty and something I like starting my day with.
My breakfast date had no opinion either way, he stuck with just milk. ;)
Note: I do not have a relationship with Food For Life and they did NOT supply this product. Food Finds are unpaid, unsolicited product reviews of things I find, eat and use from my local grocery stores.
