Sometimes cereal is the only thing that will satisfy that morning hunger. The cereal aisle used to be a vast sea of endless boxed possibilities, but once you have a food allergy or Celiac Disease, you may think your sea of possibilities just dried up. That is not the case though! Think again! With the rise of food allergies and intolerences, small companies and brands (even big ones!) are stepping up and providing some awesome cereal and granola options for everyone to enjoy. A life should never be deprived of cereal; it's an American classic and for me, one of my favorite foods! Better yet, a lot of these gluten-free allergy-friendly options are healthier and use whole grain, organic ingredients. No more nasty high fructose corn syrup, BHT, or artificial colors and flavors. So I've complied a list of my approved gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free, egg-free cereals and granolas for you to try, love, and enjoy! Because who are we kidding? Some mornings are just cereal mornings; that's life...sweet life!
All products listed below are GLUTEN-FREE, EGG-FREE, DAIRY-FREE, and most are SOY-FREE. I indicted with a "*" on the very few products that do contain soy (usually due to a chocolate). These options are also free of nasty additives, heavy unnatural sugars like high fructose corn syrup, and preservatives like BHT.
I've also BOLDED the names of my favorite cereals and granolas so you know which ones I totally adore most!
