Paleo No Grain Nut cereal

Paelo Nut and seeds cereal

How could you say no to this Paelo Nut and seeds cereal?!?!?!?

I.LOVE.CEREAL! I may love cereal more than I love my kids, just kidding I would not go that far but I must admit I do have a weird infatuation with cereal that most people cannot understand. I grew up eating cereal in place of meals altogether, for snacks and even after a meal that left me terribly unsatisfied. And it was sugary cereals that satisfied my sweet tooth during both of my pregnancies.  Come on, a bowl of Cocoa Krispies was “healthier” than eating a bowl of chocolate ice cream, right? At least that is how I justified it anyway. So you can imagine, as I slowly try to convert to a Paleo lifestyle, cereal has really been the only thing I feel deprived of or miss terribly. I recently was telling my good friend and running partner, Amy, about my cereal withdrawals, and she told me about her version of a no grain “cereal” and I can’t tell you how hooked I am! Aren’t you? Try it. This no grain, nut cereal tastes just as hearty as Kashi cereals yet better. To top it off, it has double if not triple the fiber and protein of the normal healthy cereals too. It will also keep you satisfied all through the morning as well. What are you waiting for?

This was my first Paleo cereal and honesty I was impressed. It tasted like a better and more filling version of Kashi cereals.

    Dear Laura,

    This is not a “paleo” recipe, as you include fruit. A better choice would be a “primal” version using half & half or cream, and if you need a “sweet” touch, use raisins, craisins, goji berries, etc.

      Last time I checked fruit is “Paleo.” But to be honest I don’t associate with titles anymore. I don’t obsess anymore about what is strict Paleo or not. I do my best to eat whole, unprocessed foods and that’s all I ask of people is to eat food what makes THEM feel good, knowing that what you may digest and tolerate others cannot. I am not here to tell you what to eat. Furthermore, I like to encourage people to make better food choices rather than be negative and correcting people. Thank you.

        I agree with you Laura! Unless I have someone on the Gaps diet , I tell them to just eat real, whole foods. Preferably without a list of ingredients on the back. If you can tolerate dairy then have diary, just get it from the best source possible. Love the recipe and posted it on my Gaps group Facebook page. Breakfast is one of those meals that people struggle with. Especially if they are used to eating cereal all the time. Thank You!
