I Love This Gluten Free Cereal Recipe!
So if you have been around my blog much, you might have noticed that I pretty much live a gluten free life and I often eat grain free as well.
Notice that I said pretty much! I believe in balance. Sometimes I will eat a gluten free cereal recipe like this one, and other times I might whip up a batch of my Paleo gluten free and grain free cranberry almond crunch cereal. I like to have options, so that I don’t get bored with on a particular food.
So today, I want to share with you a gluten free cereal recipe that is a little different then my typical “from scratch” kind of baking. I am actually going to use a boxed prepared food item, but hold on…it is a different kind of boxed item, and definitely a healthier option!
When You Are Pinched For Time
I get it, sometimes you want convenience! Finding “healthier” convenience foods can be hard to find in this day and age. But guys, have I got a terrific brand to tell you about!
Have you noticed over the past month I have been participating in a 30 day gluten free challenge? Well, I have and let me tell you, it has been an incredible experience!
Living Now Foods
My sponsors in this challenge, Living Now Foods, sent me a box of gluten free goodies. Not only are they gluten free, but they are free of many allergens!
Living Now Foods are:
- GMO Free
- Mostly Certified Organic
- Dairy Free
- Egg Free
- Soy Free
- Wheat Free
- Nut free
I know, pretty amazing right. Could there be a “boxed” food item that is actually made with quality ingredients? The answer is yes! Living Now Foods is that brand and they give you a better option to choose from.
All Things In Moderation
Now I am not saying make your whole diet out of these products, what I am saying is that it is okay from time to time to use these products. It is all about a balance, remember?
