Hot, steaming oatmeal. I grew up eating the tasty stuff with brown sugar most mornings. I have wonderful childhood memories about oatmeal. Then I had my own children and got them hooked too. I loved how healthy and filling and yummy this breakfast was. Until the Celiac diagnosis for my Gluten-Free Kid (GFK) back in 2004. We cut oatmeal out of our diets and tried to replace it with hot rice cereal, hot millet cereal and even amaranth. We also tried the gluten-free versions of safe oatmeal but it just wasn’t quite the same.
Well, that changed this week. Our newest find is Eco-Planet’s Gluten-Free 7 Whole Grain Hot Cereal. We tried the instant maple and brown sugar flavor with some warm rice milk to keep it dairy free. Heavenly! This cereal is packed with grains: mostly whole gluten-free oats but it also has buckwheat, sorghum, brown rice, puffed amaranth, quinoa and millet. It has 5 grams of protein per serving and 500 mg of Omega-3s and uses evaporated cane juice to naturally sweeten things up. Eco-Planet also offers original and apples and cinnamon versions that we are eagerly anticipating. Enjoy a bowl today!
