National Cereal Day!

The 7th of March is National Cereal Day - Until today, I didn't even know such thing exists, lol. The classic morning meal was based on an American diet in the 1800s when it was a poor one packed with protein, booze and caffeine. It was even considered a remedy back then. So much to a little bit of history today... Coming to the cereals of the future: Have you ever heard of Tiger nuts? Well, me neither and to be honest, I was suspicious when I heard about it! But it seems like Tiger nuts are making a comeback as superfood and we all try to be healthy these days and especially it's only March and the I'm not ready to give up on those new years resolutions. They're not actually nuts but tubers of a grass-like plant called yellow nutsedge. Their sweet taste with a hint of coconut make them enjoyable and they have a lot of Vitamin C & E, are high in iron, magnesium and potassium. Sounds like a great breakfast for someone working out on a regular basis.

The Bloggers Hangout gave me the chance to try out many different products and the Raw Original Crispies from RAW GORILLA, which contain Tiger nuts, are one of my favourites. Even though I was a little disappointed when I opened it. The inside is about half as big as the box itself and I expected it to be a full box. Nonetheless, tasted it in two different options: One with greek yogurt, blueberries and mango and the other with unsweetened almond milk. As I don't like overly sweet food most of the time, the cereals have a very nice natural sweet taste and I love the coconut chips in there! Besides that, it contains spouted Buckwheat, dried Figs, Coconut blossom nectar, Lucuma powder, Cacao butter, Cashews, Maca Powder, Vanilla powder, sea salt and black pepper. Best thing is, it is 100% organic! So we wouldn't have to worry about any non-healthy ingredients - no artificial colouring, refined sugar free, gluten-free, vegan, paleo and grain free. Couldn't be better! I know people don't like trying new things and rather stick to their habits, but I always feels like I can always find something better. And I'll be convinced immediately when I hear the word coconut, lol.
You should definitely give it a try!

Love, Drea
