How swag would it be if you could design your own cereal? That’s the idea behind Custom Choice Cereal, the company that allows those with gluten allergies and sensitivities to make their own breakfast crunch. Okay, it’s not crunch. I just didn’t want to use the word cereal again.
The company allows you to choose a base of organic corn flakes, organic rice puffs, or rolled oats. Then add anything from dried fruit, nuts or chocolate chips to the mix. The company gives the price and nutrition info each item, making it easy to stay on your diet at a reasonable cost. I created a box (serv. size 11) of organic non-GMO corn flakes, dried blueberries and sliced almonds that came to $7.27. Not bad.
If ordering cereal is not high on your priority list, you can still make your own.
- Add one serving of rolled oats or bran flakes (non-processed, of course)
- Add 1/2 serving of fresh fruit, like a banana or blueberries
- 1 TBS of flax, Chia or Hemp seed.
- 2 TBS of chopped or sliced nuts
Mix in a bowl, add non-dairy milk or yogurt and voila, breakfast is served.
