From the farms of Bali, this company has created a coconut water electrolyte powder mix that brings you natures Gatorade. Coconut water is full of nutrients and is a great source of potassium and sodium. The ingredients include evaporated coconut water, and dextrose (a naturally occuring sugar from tapioca in this case for the spray dry process).

Cascadian Farm Organic Frozen Fruit Blueberries

Cascadian Farm Organic Frozen Fruit Blueberries

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free

We love small family farm companies like Cascadian. You can actually visit their roadside fruit stand at their family farm in the North Cascade mountains of Western Washington. Their high quality organic frozen fruit is easy to find at your local health food store. Their berries are harvested by hand, at the peak of ripeness. We always have them stocked in our freezer for our breakfast smoothie. Check out Cascadian's cereals, granola bars, juice concentrates and fruit spreads as well.

Bob's Red Mill Steel Cut Oats

Bob's Red Mill Steel Cut Oats

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic

Steel-Cut means that the whole raw oats are cut into little pieces on a steel buhr mill. This is a slightly different process then rolled oats because rolled oats have been processed by rolling rather then cutting. Steel cut oats have a higher nutritional value. This is a healthy breakfast choice, but if you have gluten sensitivities stick to the gluten free cereals. We love Bob's Red Mill as a company. 4 stars.

Bob's Red Mill Mighty Tasty Gluten Free Cereal

Bob's Red Mill Mighty Tasty Gluten Free Cereal

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free

This is a product we often recommend to those with gluten sensitivities. This hot cereal contains brown rice, corn, buckwheat, and sorghum (a cereal crop). This is a great option for breakfast to stabilize blood sugar.  It will keep your energy level up and keep you from feeling the need to snack all morning. It tastes great, we love it! This company has taken whole grains to a whole new level. They have been innovative with over 400 products including flours, cereals, baking mixes and grains. We love this company because it isn't just about whole grains. They have a full line of gluten free products and you can find just about any kind of flour such as gluten free oat flour, almond flour or coconut flour with the Bob Red Mills brand. We would love to see this company support non-GMO ingredients. Their products can seem expensive for the quantity you are getting, but for the quality we think it is worth it.

Bob's Red Mill Muesli

Bob's Red Mill Muesli

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic

 This is delicious as a breakfast cereal or a midday snack. Bob's Muesli includes rolled oats, wheat, rye, triticale (a wheat/rye GMO blend) barley, almonds, sunflower seeds, and walnuts. It's naturally sweetened with date crumbles and raisins. This cereal is filling, and nutritious and can be eaten hot or cold. It gets 3.5 stars because we don't like to combine fruit with grain for digestion purposes and because we mostly recommend gluten free.
