Healthy Cereals: Go Kashi®

Want to buy a whole grain cereal that's really "whole grain", healthy for you, helps you lose weight, prevents disease due to its fiber content, and is half the cost of the other brands? Well, I have re-discovered Kashi's new line of organic cereals, and they are wonderful! All Kashi products are natural, minimally processed and free of highly refined sugars, artificial additives and preservatives.

My kids were raised on the good ole' Kashi Puffed Rice, but I was elated when I saw the Kashi Company has an expanded line of organic cereals, and at half the price of the "popular" cereals. And they even have an on-line store if your local grocer doesn't carry the line of products, or if you live out of the USA,
or in remote areas. Go to Kashi.com and keep your pantry stocked with one of the best cereal brands on the market.

I am not being paid to advertise this product, but merely want to share this information about the products I personally use:

GOLEAN® cereal can fuel weight loss. One serving supplies 40% of daily fiber needs and 20% daily protein needs. That's more than three times the protein and fiber of the average cereal. GOLEAN is a lightly sweetened mix of crunchy fiber twigs, crispy soy protein grahams, and honey-toasted seven whole grains and the "Kashi famous" sesame puffs.

(Note: in next month's newsletter, I will have an article I am currently researching on soy. According to my research, I believe natural unprocessed soy that has been properly fermented is safe to use in modified quantities.)

INGREDIENTS: Soy grits, Kashi Seven Whole Grains and Sesame® (hard red winter wheat, long grain brown rice, whole grain oats, barley, triticale, rye, buckwheat, sesame seeds), evaporated cane juice syrup, corn meal, corn flour, soy protein, wheat bran, oat fiber, corn bran, honey, evaporated cane juice, natural flavors, calcium carbonate, salt, annatto color.

Allergen Statement: CONTAINS SOYBEAN AND WHEAT INGREDIENTS.

HEART TO HEART® cereal (one of my personal favorites) provides one gram of healthy soluble fiber from whole grain oats to help reduce the risk of heart disease.

Heart to Heart helps support healthy arteries, has antioxidants, botanicals and B-Vitamins that help keep arteries strong:

-100% Daily Value of Vitamin E; 50% Daily Value of Vitamin C; 25% Daily Value of Beta Carotene
- 100mg green tea extract, 25mg of grape seed extract (the amount found in a pound of grapes), lycopene (equal to 1 tomato)
- 100% Daily Value of Folic Acid, Vitamins B6 and B12

INGREDIENTS: Whole Oat Flour, Oat Bran, Evaporated Cane Juice, Yellow Corn Meal, Corn Flour, Kashi Seven Whole Grains & Sesame® Flour (Whole: Oats, Long Grain Brown Rice, Rye Hard Red Winter Wheat, Triticale, Buckwheat, Barley, Sesame Seeds), Oat Fiber, Wheat Germ, Honey, Salt, Sodium Bicarbonate, Natural Honey Flavor, Decaffeinated Green Tea Extract, Alpha Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E), Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Activin® Grape Seed Extract, Tomato Extract, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B6), Ferrous Fumarate, Zinc Oxide, Turmeric For Color, Beta Carotene (A Source Of Vitamin A), Folic Acid, Vitamin B12.

AUTUMN WHEAT® cereal are bite sized biscuits made from whole wheat intermingled with a small amount of organic sweetener. They make Autumn Wheat with whole organic wheat berries that are steamed, shredded and weaved together. Then they are baked, locking the sweetener into the center of the biscuit, making them
rise. This creates a light, puffy texture and enhances the toasty, whole grain taste without toxic chemical additives. I snack on them dry when I need a little something in my tummy. They are whole grain, an excellent source of fiber, low fat, and sodium-free.
