Here’s another entry in this rad blog that I invite you to file under “Things You See at Kroger.” This box of Strawberry Frosted Shredded Wheat Cereal caught my eye when I was grocery shopping with my sister while visiting California at Christmas. Because the search for Pink Things observes no Holiday!
Do you like cereal? I sure do. When it comes to breakfast foods that you don’t have to actually cook, cold cereal is my favorite breakfast. I eat it at least five days a week as I answer emails and schedule important meetings each morning while sitting at my desk. Brain Food.
I grew up in a household where my Mom did not buy any presweetened cereals, so while all of my friends were eating Cap’n Crunch and Froot Loops, I was eating stuff like Cheerios and Shredded Wheat, so I definitely developed a taste for whole grains early in life. This is probably why I am in love with this cereal I just discovered with the very fun name of Crunchy Flax with Chia, by Enjoy Life Foods. Seriously, it is the most delicious cereal.
I have seen Crunchy Flax described as “Crispy, crunchy puffs,” but I would say they are more like tiny nuggets rather than puffs. In fact, if you have eaten Grape Nuts, Crunchy Flax will make you think of that cereal, because it stays crunchy a long time after you add the milk. I like it way better than Grape Nuts though, because it has a better flavor and you don’t have to be afraid that you are going crack a tooth on it. Because Grape Nuts are hardcore. Crunchy Flax is a kinder, gentler cereal, if you will.
Crunchy Flax is 100% natural, made with ground flax seed and chia seeds, and it is not only delicious but also very nutritious; being sweetened with fruit juice and containing 44g of whole grain, 7g of protein, 1000mg of Omega-3s and 5g of fiber per serving. Also, it is gluten free! You could add some berries or sliced fruit to a bowl and it would be just outstanding.
