I had given up on cold cereal after fruitless searches through years down the aisles of regular grocery stores. Besides that, like at least 50% of Celiacs, I am also lactose intolerant. Then there’s all that sugar…
Suddenly, Saturday, I discovered THREE different kinds of gluten free cereals at my local metro along with a small carton of French Vanilla soy milk! Today I had small samples of them all and regained a pleasure that goes right back to childhood. How I Missed cornflakes, cheerios and kix.
Evidently there are others as well. My husband clipped recipes for using these in various cookies. My favorite was Sunrise which is a mix of quinoa, buckwheat, corn, flax. inulin, amaranth and brown rice. Nice dry too.
As I grow older, finding ‘safe’ food (celiac friendly) is like a gift, a big breath of relief when I discover something else I can eat without fear. I feel a great surge of gratitude for those manufacturers out there who are listening.
