The Holy Crap Cereal
0

4 posts in this topic

Thinking of ordering some of this cereal for an upcoming trip to New Zealand. We will be travelling in a small camper van, but it has some storage and a fridge.

The idea of waking up and eating this quickly before starting my day sounds amazing. It was on the Dragons Den, a rerun I caught this week and I was just wondering if anyone has heard of it?

Its called 'Holy Crap'...which makes me giggle to boot! By a Canadian couple, out in British Columbia.

This list was what got me interested...

Gluten free

Lactose free

Wheat free

Sugar free

Nut free

All natural

Vegan

Contains 8 full servings

No cooking required

Its also GMO free, and you only need 2 Tbsp's. I hope its not too good to be true.

If anyone has tried it please post, I would love to hear from you.

I bought some of this ... the back of the package says:

Ingredients: organic cha, hulled hemp hearts, organic buckwheat, organic cranberries, orgranic rasins, apple bits, organic cinamon. Mix 2 tablespoons with 4 tablespoons of almond, soy or hemp milk or milk or sprinkle 1 tablespoon on yogurt, oatmeal or granola. Stir, wait 3-4 minutes ... enjoy!

(Per 2 tablespoons - 28 grams): Calories 120, Fats 6 grams, Carbs 16 grams, Protien 4 grams, Calcium 8% (of daily requirements) Iron 13%.

"no cooking required - eat it raw"

I tried it raw and my verdict is - I think a coffee with double cream would provide more calories, nutrition and taste better. Lots of calories per tablespoon but its hard to take more than a couple tablespoons with all the little nut bits getting caught in every little cranny in your mouth. The taste is bland in spite of the cinamon and the only good tasting bit is the rasins. If you use it as a sprinkle on something else then maybe it would work for you, but all it's doing for me is giving me a chuckle when I open the pantry.

I really like Holy Crap and others like it (I bought one called Chia Goodness that is very similar).

However - I don't eat it as a cereal. 2 tbsp ? Not much, soak it in milk or whatever, boring! What I do with it is put it in my baked goods (muffins, cookies) or my cooked rice cereal (Bob's Redmill really tasty rice cereal or whatever it's called). It adds texture & some crunch to otherwise boring gluten-free products !

Good to know then!

Ty both for the info. I am going to grab a bag from a local store, but just one to see how it goes. I will hold off on the 3 pack/free shipping special lol.

I like the idea of adding it to baked goods, since I already add chia seeds.

Bit bland though? bummer, when I was reading the ingredients It 'sounds' like it should pack a flavour punch...but thats exactly why I wanted to ask the forum, so Thank you for that heads up too.

    • Hi, I am 20yrs old and have had this weird stomach pains on and off for 2 years. They started by just having pains on my left side when I sucked in or pressed on my tummy. In the last 3 months they have gotten really bad, with a lot of bloating and used to occur almost every time just before bed I would get bloated, and feel constipated like I just needed a hole in my stomach to release the pressure. I have had tests for lactose and gluten, and they both came back negative. I was not having any gluten at the time of the test which I have read can affect the results. I had little help from my doctor so I went gluten free which was working really well and I would only have pain once every two weeks. The last three nights were awful, I was in so much pain I struggled to walk, and again they would go away in the morning. I looked like I was pregnant and relief was only through passing wind (sorry for the detail!). I was wondering if anyone has had similar experience, or could point me in a direction to help me. The weird thing is that I did have gluten one day and that didn't seem to affect me at all. Then I will have something like vegemite (I'm from Australia) and this is the only thing that I can think off that would set me off (it contains wheat). So I don't really know what do to or where to go, these stomach pains have been heightened since I had a horrible gastro for a week, and went to hospital. Could it be possible that my gut lining has been damaged? I have become really stuck on what I should do next, as tonight my stomach is fine, I actually feel hungry (previously I have felt super full as a result of being bloated), so I have no idea what triggered that horrible episodes before I went to bed for the last few nights. Any thoughts or suggestions would be amazing, thank heaps
    • I found when I went gluten free I started eating more dairy and that gave me worse stomach aches and bloating than the gluten did. So now I have to avoid gluten and dairy.  Maybe you have a similar problem with something you are eating.  I hope you feel better soon.  
    • Hi! I received my "official" celiac diagnosis last week. I had an endoscopy last month that was originally looking for ulcers and h. pylori, but they did some biopsies of my duodenum since they were in the neighborhood and the biopsy came back "consistent with Celiac's disease" and later. They urged me to get my blood checked and follow up with my primary doctor. My blood work came back negative, but my doctor was confident it's Celiac so told me to stay away from gluten. I've been completely gluten free (or to the best of my knowledge) for 2 weeks now, and my results are mixed. At first, I felt great! My stomach was no longer CRAZY bloated once I stopped eating pasta and bread, my acne started healing, and the red rash on the back of my arms started to fade. That was the first few days. Lately, though, my acne is once again flaring up and I've been SO EXHAUSTED. I feel so tired all the time. Even now I have fatigue in my head, limbs, and I could hardly walk or move my body earlier today. I'm overweight and I like to go to the gym, but what used to be an easy workout for me is kicking my ass! I used to go to the gym and tear it up: HIIT on the treadmill followed by 40 minutes of heavy weight lifting. Now I can hardly finish 3 reps in my first set without feeling like a nap. I can't run anymore because my body feels clumsy and heavy. Also, I'm still bloated. I don't suffer from painful, acute bloating, but I struggle to pass gas and I look like I have pregnant belly. I think I'm also retaining water all over my body, and I'm not sure if that's normal? For whatever reason, I have this belief that water is mainly retained in the core and not arms, legs, and face. Anyway, I'd love to hear what you have to say/what you've experienced. Is this typical to first going gluten free?
    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
