Off to a Good Start at Natural Product Expo East with Breakfast Favorites

Being the most important meal of the day, I was so excited about finding some truly standout gluten free and allergen free breakfast items at the Natural Product Expo East that took place in Boston on October 16, 17 & 18.

Following are my favorites:

Shelton’s Turkey Breakfast Sausage: GF, NF, DF, SF, FF

These sausages reminded me of the good ole’ fashioned sausage Mom used to make. They are made of naturally fed, free range turkey and carefully selected seasonings. These sausages are quick frozen for freshness. No artificial ingredients – No preservatives.

These sausages are for the lazy, laid-back Sunday mornings, since they are not pre-cooked. However, the taste is well worth the wait.

The Shelton website also has a gluten free product listing:

Founded in 1924, Shelton has delivered old fashioned, all natural taste direct to the breakfast table even in 2008.


WholeSoy & Company Soy Yogurt: GF, NF, DF, FF

Using organic soybeans, this WholeSoy yogurt is a creamy dairy-like yogurt while getting all the benefits of soy protein. The creamy, rich texture is a welcoming breakfast addition.

I am looking forward to mixing cereal or fresh fruit into the WholeSoy for a quick and easy weekday breakfast.

WholeSoy is certified vegan and kosher, and contains no cholesterol, chemicals or casein.

Lara’s Rolled Oats:  GF, NF, DF, SF, FF

Lara’s oatmeal is free of all allergens – egg, peanut, tree nut, dairy, soy, fish, seafood and gluten! It is also free of sulphites. It is just good old fashioned style (not quick cooking) pure oatmeal with no cross contamination with other grains such as wheat, barley or rye.

Lara’s says that there are about 4-6% of people with celiac disease who in addition to having the intolerance to gluten they have intolerance to the protein (avenin) in oats. However, the other 95% should be very happy to have this nutritious grain back in their diet.

Not only are these rolled oats great for a hot breakfast cereal, they are also good in breads, loafs and other breakfast bakery items. In addition, another one of Lara’s products, their oat flour, is whole-grain and a great flour to work with – similar to whole-wheat in terms of texture and density.

Yummy, delicious & versatile in baking, Lara’s Whole Grain Oat’s are a staple for any kitchen pantry.
Check out their website to find out where to purchase – both online and in-store.


Holly’s Gluten Free Hot Cereal: GF, NF, DF, SF, FF

Holly’s hot cereal is creamy in texture, healthy and tasty. The bonus is that this gluten, nut, dairy, fish and soy free hot cereal is quick and easy to prepare (only 2 minutes in the microwave).

The texture and taste comes from the hip variety of ingredients in this cereal; gluten free oats, quinoa, flax, whole grain rice, corn, white sorghum, and buckwheat. Fiber galore!

Holly’s Hot cereal prides themselves in using the highest quality certified gluten free oats.

I am looking forward to topping it with brown sugar and raisins.

You can buy on, direct on the Holly Oatmeal’s web site or at select retailers.
