Gluten Free Foods
It seems that everywhere I look recently I encounter Gluten free foods, I think to myself…what in the world is gluten and why are there so many gluten free options?!! So because it sparks my curiosity I look up the definition of gluten (aka, glue: is a form of protein found in foods processed with wheat). My mind starts wandering a little more and I realize that there are A LOT of foods that contain gluten, I know what you are thinking we are in 2012, this chick should know this…well, no one in my immediate family has any food allergies and although I have friends with gluten allergies I have been too embarrassed to ask them about it! When I was asked to review Udi’s Granola I said yes right away, we love granola at our house! The package arrived with 4 large bags of Udi’s Granola in Au Natural, Vanilla, Cranberry and Original. I am currently having an affair with cranberry so I started with that one!
Simple Breakfast Ideas
I am always looking for simple breakfast ideas that are healthy, quick and more importantly YUMMY!!! I put my daily portion of yogurt into a cup and put a nice generous amount of Udi’s Cranberry Granola on top, it was heavenly. Of course if Mommy is eating something new the kids want to try it out, both of my girls loved loved the yogurt with granola. I have eaten the granola plain as a snack, put it on ice cream and threw it into my pancake mix…all delicious in their own right!
