Brookfarm’s Macadamia Gluten Free Muesli
In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease, and since then it has become an invaluable resource to people worldwide who seek information about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.
In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore! which was also another Internet firstâit was the first gluten-free food site to offer a shopping cart-style interface, and the ability for people to order gluten-free products manufactured by many different companies at a single Web site.
I am also co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
Upon opening the bag, I immediately noticed an array of colors from this amazing variety of grains, nuts, seeds and fruit. It was a pleasant surprise to see that they were using buckwheat, brown rice and amaranth as their main gluten-free grains, probably due to their outstanding nutritional benefits, including their high fiber content. Likewise, macadamia nuts have been shown in studies to reduce bad cholesterol, and increase good cholesterol, so I always try to find way to add them to my diet.
I filled my bowl about half-full with this delicious muesli mixture, and then poured about two cups of plain yogurt on top and mixed it all together. Upon tasting it I discovered that this muesli has a very nice texture combination—it is not overly crunchy, sweet or salty—as I have found to be the case with other brands of muesli. It seems to have just the right-balance of crunchiness, sweetness and saltiness, and all of its wholesome ingredients seem to blend together perfectly to create an outstanding muesli.
Brookfarm’s Gluten-Free Macadamia Muesli is much better than the muesli that I got used to eating when I was exchange student in Germany, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a healthy meal to start their day. This is a “feel good” meal or snack that will leave you satisfied. If you are a fan of muesli you will love this Australian treat, and even if you are not a muesli fan I believe you will still enjoy Brookfarm’s Gluten-Free Macadamia Muesli!
