When it comes to breakfast, these two favorites hit the healthy jackpot. One Degree Organic Foods promises 100% transparency, guaranteed by the ingredient tracker that shows you how serious they are about organic, GMO free and genuine ingredients. The Veganic Sprouted Brown Rice Cacao Crisps, despite the hardly brandable name, is the healthy alternative to the Kellog’s Cocoa Krispies, and a much better option in terms of nutrients and sugars. Their winning choice are coconut palm sugar (it prevents those blood sugar crashes that make you hungry and cause you to gain weight) and veganic farming, which goes beyond organic making smart use of traditional growing tecniques like alternating plant varieties over time to build nutrients in the soil.
My family, growing wheat in the south of Italy, still utilizes this old trick to enrich nutrients in soil and avoid dangerous pesticides, herbicides and other contaminants. It makes miracles. As the cherry on top, the rice is sprouted which means improved digestibility and a surprising rich flavor.
My other favorites are Jovial‘s Checkerboard cookies. This magnificent brand has built an entire line of products around Einkorn, the most ancient variety of wheat, much more nutritious than modern wheat, richer in proteins and fibers and lighter in gluten. Einkorn was grown by man more than 12,000 years ago, never hybridized over the centuries and is today the genetically purest wheat.
Both can be found at Wholefoods and in many other online and offline locations listed on their websites.
Have them with a glass of milk (cow, organic soy or almond) or green tea and a fruit. You’ll enjoy a balanced breakfast that will allow you to reduce your income of sugar (if compared to common brands of cookies, muffins and cereal), stop the cravings and get to mid day with a fresh mind. And if you get hungry before lunch, make yourself some cold pressed juice: it will fill you up and guarantee you the recommended serving of vitamins and veggies nutrients!
