Organic Product Recommendations / Cereal and Bread

As I mentioned in previous posts about my journey with Organic Foods, it’s a whole new world out there.  To me anyway.  :)  I find myself staring at the shelves, wondering what kind of organic mayonnaise to buy, or what kinds of Organic cereal my kids will eat.  It’s a challenging, not to mention expensive, endeavor.  And it’s VERY painful to buy something, only to find out that we don’t like it, and have to throw it away!  ** A side note on trying new products, Whole Foods will take back ANY of their 365 brand products without a receipt.  I took back their organic version of Fruit Loops for a full refund.  :)

I’m going to share some of my discoveries and I’ll keep these posts short and sweet.  I’ve tagged them with “product reviews” in my Categories so you can find them and refer back to them easier.

First up: Cereal and Bread

My kids always liked Kix so this Gorilla Munch cereal from EnviroKidz was a great find.  It’s a bit crunchier than Kix (and stays crunchy in the milk), and it only has 8 grams of sugar per 3/4 cup serving.  Comparatively speaking, Kix only has 2 grams of sugar but it also has Modified Corn Starch and Corn Syrup (both of which are surely made from GMO corn).  Plus, Kix has double the sodium content at 210 mg.  Gorilla Munch is Gluten Free and has exactly three ingredients: Organic Corn Meal, Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, and Sea Salt.  They stopped selling it at the Whole Foods in Buckhead for some reason, so I just went ahead and ordered a case directly from Nature’s Path.  It was cheaper that way (only $3.97 per box) plus I got free shipping.

Rudi’s Organic Bakery makes an awesome Honey Sweet Whole Wheat Bread.  Although I have always bought 100% Whole Wheat Bread, now that I’ve been eating this organic bread, it’s hard to go back to the regular stuff.  This bread is more dense, filling, and has such a great taste.  It’s worth the extra “points” — if you know what I mean!   Of course Whole Foods has a store brand of Organic Whole Wheat Bread too.  It’s pretty good, and cheaper, so that’s a good option as well.
