Need Cereal Similar To Kashi Brand
0

7 posts in this topic

Since going gluten free, I'm having trouble finding a cereal that's gluten free and enjoyable. I always loved the Kashi brands because they are high in fiber and not sugary sweet. I've tried the puffins and Envirokids, but they don't fill me. Anybody know of a cereal similar to Kashi?

I've had the same problem, but I really like the Evirokids cereals. Have you tried the Peanut Butter Panda Puffs or the Koala Crisp? Definitely not like Kashi, but really good. Those are really the only two cereals that I have tried and liked. Have you considered hot cereals?

My favorite cereal before going gluten free was Kashi Strawberry Fields. The closest that I have found to it is Erewhon Chrisp Brown Rice with Mixed Berries. It's like why does Kashi have to put the wheat in that one?

I used to love the Kashi cereals! I haven't found an exact replecement, but I did find a cereal with a decent nutritional profile, that has a crunch. It's Nutty Flax (Perky brand.) I get it at my local health food store. They also make Nutty Rice, but it's not as nutritional (nor does it taste as good, IMO.) The Nutty Flax is in the form of little "balls" or "nuggets" - in a vague sort of way, it reminds me of Grape Nuts. I put chopped nuts and fruit on it, and it makes a good breakfast. I do wish someone would come out with some better cold cereal options....sigh.

gluten-free cereals that I have found to be on the healthier side include:

Nature's Path Mesa Sunrise - You either like it or you hate it. My kids won't touch it, but I think it's pretty good. It has a decent amount of fiber and is not too sweet.

Health Valley Corn Crunchems - nothing like Kashi, but low in sugar and really tasty. They make a rice flavor too.

Nutty Flax - great in yogurt.

Ceros - a cheerio like cereal. Not exactly like cheerios, but good. Low in sugar and a good amount of fiber.

Bakery on Main Granola - full of nuts and seeds and flakes. So delicious. It is on the sweeter side, but it sticks with you from all the nuts and fruit in it.

Trader Joe's gluten-free Granola - just like the Bakery on Main granola but less expensive

    • Gluten withdrawal. It's real. I agree with what cstark said but I call it gluten withdrawal. Your body really does get "addicted" to gluten and when you go gluten-free, then the body has to cope with the withdrawal of a substance it was used to getting on a regular basis even though that substance was killing you. It isn't much different than drug addiction & the withdrawal process from that.  It sucks, I know but I promise it will get better. Rest as much as you can, drink tons of water, eat well cooked foods to ease the strain on your villi. Bone broth - home made - is a great healer of the gut & very gentle on it as well as being extremely nourishing. Just google how to make it. {{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}
    • Push for the endoscopy.  My GI said at the initial consult that he didn't think I had celiac but wanted to do the scope to "rule it out"  When he saw me immediately after the endo, while I was still in recovery, he saw enough damage to change his position and sure enough the biopsy came back positive.
    • Your body has been used to ingesting and has been coping with the gluten in its systems.  DON'T PANIC because your body is doing it for you.   Seriously now, the medical field has a technological term defining when a system is used to working a certain way/routine.  When that is either disrupted or changed, it could take a while for the body adjust to a different way of doing things.  Another factor in the increase in symptoms could possibly be that your body is starting to "clean house".  It's trying to get rid of the amounts of gluten hiding out in all its nooks and crannies.  It is going to be a long term process.  It's like cleaning out a vacuum hose or other household item that is just caked with gunk.  The first cleaning gets rid of a large portion of the gunk and ick.  The subsequent cleanings gets rid of more and more ick but in lesser amounts. I thought I was going to go crazy those first few months, but things are a lot better now. (I am about 10 months gluten free).  I still have moments of brain fog and even episodes, but my body is getting closer (and more used to)  to having a cleaner "household item".  I know it's tough at first with the increased onslaught of symptoms, but hang in there.   You may want to keep a journal of all that you ingest or come into contact with for a time to track anything that could exacerbate symptoms.  (For me, my episodes are chemically triggered as well.)  If for some reason a few months down the road, you still have large amounts of symptoms it would be a good idea to visit your GP again just in case there something else that is going on.  
    • I would love some help! After 20ish years of being misdiagnosed with IBS, I was diagnosed with celiac disease (positive blood test for tTG IgA and positive duodenal biopsy) ~ 6 weeks ago. Of course I've gone completely gluten free, and I've been crazy paranoid careful not to ingest any gluten. I've also completely avoided all oats (even certified gluten free) and cut out lactose (due to transient lactose intolerance... because I don't have villi) . But now I feel WAY WORSE. I've had abdominal pain every single day, which ranges from mild aching to severe 10/10 laying on the floor crying and vomiting pain. I understand that it takes a long time to get better, but why would I get so much worse? My best guess is SIBO, but I can't imagine that it could cause such extreme symptoms, can it?  So my question to you fine folks is: did this happen to anyone else? Have you gotten sicker after you changed your diet? Is this normal?  For arguments sake, lets assume that I did not ingest any gluten to cause these symptoms... Thank you for your help!
    • Thanks very much Cyclinglady. Yes, it is Kaiser. I doctor said the GI think it is unlikely to be celiac deisease (he did not say how he came to this conclusion), but he would be happy to do an upper endoscopy for me. I did some look up online, this procedure should be low risk. Still feel a little hesitate while reading the potential risks :(.
