Erewhon...what?

Erewhon is the name of a delicious brand of cereals from Attune Foods.

I was given the opportunity to try their Crispy Brown Rice Mixed Berries, Cocoa Crispy Brown Rice, and Cinnamon Grahams.



The first one I opened was the cocoa crispy and taste wise it was spot on. 
A nice cocoa flavor and you have a nice treat if there is any leftover milk  (who doesn't like chocolate milk after their cereal is complete).
My kids devoured the box in a day and a half.
The mixed berries was more my speed with the delicious freeze dried blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries.
Both cereals were lightly sweet and perfectly suited for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack (for whenever you like to eat your cereal).
The third item I tried were the cinnamon grahams. 
Perfect on their own, or my favorite way with a little smear of peanut butter.
It has made a nice crisp snack that is mildly sweet which I have been enjoying in the afternoons.
Besides these foods tasting great (and being super kid friendly) they also contribute to your digestive health.
By having a healthy digestion you are able to keep everything on the move. 
Something I learned from my cleanse experience is that by having regular eliminations you don't feel so tired and so bloated/full.  Your body is able to do other work if it doesn't have to worry about always processing the food you put in your stomach.
Attune Foods knows good health is important and has taken care to remove some of the guess work when it comes to making sure you have a healthy cereal.
On their website they have several pages that provide some education on digestion:
Your digestive system is always at work breaking down the food you eat into the nutrients your body needs, but you may only become aware of this intricate system when you feel discomfort. You realize then how important your digestive health is to your well-being. To avoid digestive discomfort, eating a well-balanced diet should include fiber and for those with celiac disease or gluten intolerance, avoidance of gluten. Your digestive tract houses 70% of your immune system, so keeping your gut healthy is a great way to keep you healthy.

Do yourself a favor and do a little reading. Educate yourself on how you can help your body help you.

Feeling good on the inside will radiate through to the outside.

  1. Are all of their products gluten-free? I'm assuming the brown rice cereal is, and the graham crackers not?

  2. Thanks Rachel- we're glad you and your family enjoyed the cereals. @Whole Foods Vegan Momma- we have six Erewhon gluten free cereals, but the graham crackers are not gluten free.

  4. I am big on freshly ground flax to "keep things moving", it works very well for that, very well.

  5. How is the sugar content? I love cereal, but I often avoid it based on the high sugars. This one sounds like it delish though!
