Gryphon Myers posted an article in Gluten-Free Food ReviewsOne of the biggest complaints I have about the gluten-free food industry is that corn is usually brought in to fill the gaping whole left by the removal of wheat. Corn tastes great and all, but personally, I prefer a more nutritious wheat alternative whenever possible, so long as it still tastes good (which many do, e.g. quinoa and buckwheat). With Erewhon Buckwheat and Hemp Cereal, Attune Foods has crafted something of a gluten-free 'corn flakes' alternative (just to be clear, corn flakes are NOT gluten-free), which is made from two superfoods that we should all eat more of: buckwheat and hemp seed. Buckwheat is commonly found in top superfood lists because of its low glycemic index and high protein content. Hemp seed is a little less common in top superfood lists, perhaps because people associate it with cannabis (no, it will NOT get you high), but it is incredibly good for you. In fact, hemp is one of the only significant sources of gamma linoleic acid (a relatively rare essential fatty acid that helps boost metabolism). It is also worth mentioning that both buckwheat and hemp contain complete proteins, something that very few plants can boast (part of the beef I have with corn is that its protein is exceptionally low in lysine and tryptophan, making it a particularly incomplete protein). This mean vegetarians and vegans in particular need to start eating more hemp and/or buckwheat in order to maintain a healthy amino acid ratio. Since this is a product that clearly focuses on nutritional value, it is worth emphasizing that I enjoyed eating it. I love buckwheat, but I haven't eaten hemp seed in this quantity before, so I wasn't exactly sure what to expect. I'm not sure if it was the hemp seed, but something about this cereal had a really pleasant taste and aftertaste. I found that it went particularly well with coconut milk. The texture is a little bit 'tougher' than a product like corn flakes, but that is partially because buckwheat is so rich in insoluble fiber, and it really doesn't take anything away from the overall taste. Bottom line, this is one of the healthiest breakfast cereals you could be eating right now, gluten-free or not, and it tastes good!

Gryphon Myers posted an article in Gluten-Free Food ReviewsYou may have caught my enthusiastic review of Attune Foods Erewhon Buckwheat & Hemp cereal from last year. Well, it's time I inform you that they've done it again: Attune Foods Erewhon Quinoa & Chia gluten-free cereal is a great way to add two superfoods to your diet, and makes a tasty corn flakes alternative. Like all their cereals, Attune Foods has done a great job of maximizing health benefits and keeping the ingredients list rich with wholesome ingredients, while still delivering a tasty product that isn't a pain to eat. This cereal is similar to corn flakes, but not quite as flaky: it's a little tougher and chewier, and holds up to milk better. Health reasons aside, I actually prefer it to corn flakes, as it doesn't turn into a mushy mess in 5 minutes! Attune Foods Erewhon Quinoa & Chia cereal is great for you, and should make a welcome addition to any gluten-free household's breakfast reserves. You can find it (exclusively) at Whole Foods.

One of the difficult aspects of being a parent, especially if you are dealing with allergies, is to try and find a food that is nutritious, affordable and more importantly—finding one that all of my kids will enjoy! When I discovered Erewhon's gluten-free Crispy Brown Rice Cereal, I just had to give it a try. The ingredient list is simple, which I love (only 3 ingredients total), and it is low in fat and has only 1 gram of sugar per serving. It is also made with 100% whole grains. When I first opened the package, it reminded me of a well known cereal that I grew up with. I popped a few in my mouth and I was not disappointed! This gluten-free cereal had a light crisp texture with a slight nuttiness...I am hooked! When I introduced it to my kids there was no way I was going to tell them that it was healthy—I just served it up with some milk and they all dug right in. They now ask for this crispy rice cereal by name (which makes me very happy), and we throw in some fresh berries every now and then to make it an extra special treat.
