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.

    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.
