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

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

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
