Delicious Cereal!

Recommended Posts

If you are looking for good gluten-free cereals, try the EnviroKids choices. They're good for grown-ups too! I like the Gorilla Munch, which hold up well in milk as all of this brand do, the Panda puffs are peanut buttery, and my new favorite is Koala Krisp that are chocolatey. Some of the major grocery stores actually stock these (Genuardi's and Shop Rite in my area--DE) or you can buy them from Trader Joes stores and online from MissRobens. This manufacturer also makes cereal bars that are tasty too. :rolleyes:


Diagnosed and gluten-free since July, 2003.

Elainegl--You're not alone! I hate coconut, too! I eat the Enjoy Life granola, which has coconut as an ingredient and that made me wary, but I can say that I don't taste the coconut at all. Hopefully the Ener-G granola is the same way.

The Enjoy Life cinnamon crunch granola is nothing like the Ener-G granola. There might be other flavors of Enjoy Life granola, but the cinnamon crunch is the only one I've found. It tastes very strongly of cinnamon, and the Ener-G tastes more like almonds (which is the main ingredient). It does have a slight coconut taste, so if you don't like coconut then it might not be worth trying, unless you have someone else who will eat it. I personally like coconut, so I love the taste.

God bless,

I eat the Very Berry Enjoy Life granola and have no problem with the coconut taste, so maybe the berry taste overwhelms the coconut taste because I won't normally touch coconut with a ten foot pole!

Wow...you guys have been active here and I did not even realize it. Sorry it took me so long to get back to this link.

I will check with the enocrinologist when I go back. He did not give me a specific web site but indicated that he had been talking with some of the researchers at a couple of universities and that is where he heard about the link with soy and neuro symptoms in celiacs. If you don't have the neurological symptoms, apparently it is no big deal to eat soy. If, however, you are like me and have significant neurological damage, the soy is a bad thing. Like I said, I'll follow up with him when I see him again. He tends to be on the cutting edge with the research unlike most physicians.

I like the Koala Krunch, but it's a little too junky for an everyday cereal - not to mention too expensive. Barbara's Rice Puffins are fantastic, but you hardly ever see them in the regular supermarkets. You can find the Envirokids cereals at A&P, Shaw's and other supermarkets, along with Barbara's regular Puffins which contain oats.

I miss oatmeal a lot. I've been having grits as an oatmeal substitute, and I like them but it really isn't the same thing. GRRR!

So Donna,

My son who has some neurological issues (might be gluten related), I should try to keep him soy free?? I am allergic to soy, and so I limit it anyhow, but would that also include the soy oils? I'm not allergic to those and would those also cause problems. I have some neuological issues from gluten as well as my son... Please post any information you get from your doctor. In the mean time I think I'll do some research of my own online. ;)

God bless,

Mariann

I just found the Very Berry here and am hoping to use it for hiking/trail/snack food. I haven't even had a chance to try it but at this point, with hiking season (for our family) almost here, I need something fast.
