WIN-It-Wednesday: Erewhon’s Buckwheat & Hemp Cereal

This week’s sponsor for the Win-It-Wednesday on is a new tasty and nutritious gluten-free cereal that has made it’s way into a Whole Food’s Market near you…Erewhon’s Buckwheat & Hemp Cereal.

First off, let me clarify one common misconception about buckwheat: Despite it’s name buckwheat IS free of gluten! Plus, Erewhon Buckwheat & Hemp 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 cereal for years. They’re philosophy is “Simple Ingredients. Simply Made” and their newest addition to their gluten-free cereal line-up also holds true to that philosophy as well. I love the crunchy simplicity of this cereal. When I toss in a handful of raisins, I think it taste just like a healthy version of Raisin Bran. Which is awesome since Raisin Bran was once one of my favorite cereals.

Buckwheat and hemp are both nutrient dense ingredients – so enjoying a bowl of this cereal with milk, using it as a mix-in with yogurt, or even using it as a crunchy-fried-chicken-like coating on chicken (or even fish) are all fabulous ways to get the 5 grams of fiber, 6 grams of protein and 42 grams of whole grains that each serving of this cereal delivers.

I also like that this cereal is non-GMO project verified, something that is important to me, and has been in the spotlight recently. All of the Erewhon’s gluten-free cereals are also certified by GIG (Gluten Intolerance Group).

In other words, I can feel healthy and good about eating this cereal.

All these simple, healthy and tasty reasons are why I am so happy to have Erewhon Buckwheat & Hemp cereal sponsor the next two week’s WIN-It-Wednesdays on

    many things come to mind that make me happy most include my dear mother who left the earth way to early. she would always have snacks waiting for us when we got home from school. It might have been cereal, apples, canned fruit but there was always a snack (my fav cereal was raisin bran) The best part of the memory is she worked two jobs but still had snack waiting for us.

    What makes me truly happy in life is the simple things in life. nothing complicated, nothing fancy, just the simple beauty of the day is enough to make me smile. Outside my door is a court yard where roses bloom and wither and both make me smile seeing the circle of life even in plants. That is why something such as this ceral is happy because it is healthy and good for your body and thus for your mind and soul. Yes, I can smile because of a bowl of cereal with almond milk 🙂

    My favorite time of the day is early in the morning when everyone else is asleep. This is “my” time when I have coffee, breakfast (cereal!) and solve the issues in my life whether they be personal, local or national. The morning newspaper is at my side and all is well.
