WIN-It-Wednesday: Erewhon Crispy Brown Rice Cereal

This  Win-It-Wednesday is going to be a crowd-pleaser for many, many BeFreeForMe members!

Why? Erewhon Crispy Brown Rice Cereal cereal is not only gluten-free, but also free of nuts, dairy and eggs.

Erewhon, which was founded in 1966, has been making gluten-free crispy brown rice cereal for years – they are the first. The original. Some other gluten-free varieties offered include Cocoa Crispy Brown Rice Cereal full of chocolaty-goodness thanks to organic cocoa powder; and my favorite, Crispy Brown Rice Cereal with Mixed Berries, which is packed with dried raspberries, strawberries and blueberries. All their gluten-free cereals are certified gluten-free by GIG (Gluten Intolerance Group).

And I love the fact the Erewhon Crispy Brown Rice Cereal contains only 3 ingredients: Organic brown rice, organic brown rice syrup & sea salt. Nice and simple – with no preservatives or bad-for-me-or-my-family ingredients.

Sometimes the simplest things in life are the best things.

I’ve become quite the label reader since become gluten-free and without fail I read the labels of every. single. thing. I eat.

When I first became a label reader, it was simply to seek out any ingredients that I could not eat – ingredients that may be a culprit for gluten.

But with time, my label-reading has gone further.

I now read labels not only searching for ingredients that I can not eat, but also for ingredients that I don’t want to eat. Ingredients like preservatives, ton of sugar, stabilizers, and high-fructose corn syrup – Ingredients that many large cereal manufacturers unnecessarily use in their gluten-free cereals.

All these simple, yet appreciated,  reasons are why I am so happy to have Erewhon cereal sponsor the next two week’s WIN-It-Wednesdays on

    Hearing the hopefulness in my mom’s voice each time she tells me that she’s noticed some small improvement in my 80 year old dad’s health, now that he is gluten free! He’s had chronic hives and ataxia for several years, and the doctors could do nothing for him. I read about others who reported miraculous improvements with these things, by removing gluten from their diets, so we got the okay from his doctor and he’s been gluten free AND HIVES FREE for 2 months now! THAT makes me VERY VERY VERY HAPPY! *doing cartwheels!* 🙂 (I think his doctor is in shock!)

    Aside from that… thinking about how sweet my husband is, makes me smile…. I’m a very lucky, happy girl! 🙂
