My Cereal Reality

I was watching an episode of "Unwrapped" on the Food Network while on holiday recently, which showed a chain food bar featuring cereals which you could mix to your heart's content and munch on the go (Cereality).

This got me to thinking when last I had eaten a great bowl of cereal (years and years ago!) While there are many, many wheat-free muesli options, there are very few gluten-free cereal options that are also corn-free. And the gf ones that are available, you would not really want to eat "just" as they are (no kidding, I once tried a gf fruit muesli about 4 years ago that tasted like parmesan...)

So I decided to use my proximity to a fantastic (and massive) health store in Cape Town, Wellness Warehouse, to so shopping for my own version of a cereal bar mixed cereal.

O.K., confession time...
This is where I admit that on the morning I created my cereal reality, I ended up eating a bowl of this blend for breakfast, lunch and supper.

Yes, I ate cereal THE ENTIRE DAY!

Bless me, Father, for I am cereally addicted :-)

I made cereal magic with:

  • Enviro Kidz Koala Crisp
  • Entice Rice Flakes (with rice flakes, cocoa powder, cinnamon and sugar)
  • Coconut Flakes
  • Chia Seeds
  • Aussie Dream Rice Milk

For those of you celebrating Independence Day, happy fourth of July and enjoy the government mandated day off!

Yum that looks delicious! I love the Wellness Centre - it always has such delicious things on offer, soooo hard to resist ;) I discovered Crunchy Nut clusters when I moved to the UK and went through about 2 boxes, but haven't touched seriously since then... Will have a re-think thanks to your photo ;) x

Your cereal mix looks really good- I would have eaten it all day long too. :) There is nothing like a good bowl of cereal sometimes-- I have been known to eat it for dinner on busy nights. I like your "Keep Calm and Carry On" Place Mat!
