I’ve never been a huge fan of breakfast cereal. What I’ve found is that if it’s something I like it’s probably not good for me and if it’s good for me I probably won’t like it. This all changed when I was asked to sample some products over at Me & Goji; a website that allows you to create your own organic artisanal cereal.
You start with one of several bases such as flakes or muesli and then you choose from over 30 add ins. Things such as nuts, fruit, seeds and spices can be added to fully customize your cereal blend. Adding/removing ingredients is easy..just a click of a button. With each addition you get nutritional information allowing you to keep calories and other important factors in check at all times. You also get detailed descriptions of how each product will work for your body This was very helpful when I was trying to create a mix that would fill me up and provide enough energy to take me through my 5:30am boot camp class.
The bases start at around $4.90 and each add in is an additional charge so this can turn into quite an expense if you’re not careful. But everything is clearly priced so there really aren’t any surprises. The cool canister the cereal is packaged in holds about 15 servings which is quite a bit compared to a regular box of store bought cereal. So, although it may seem expensive I think it is well worth the indulgence.
Me & Goji also offers several premixed blends if you don’t want to take the time to mix your own. These are named according to their benefits…for example the one I tried is called Fiber; because it provides over 7 grams of fiber per serving. The unique blend of coconut, chia and raspberry make this not only nutritional but also delicious.
I am so glad I found Me & Goji and I think you will be too…so give it a try and let me know what you think.
