Cereal

God, how I miss Sugar Puffs and Golden Grahams and Shreddies etc etc!

The options for wheat intolerant people are limited and the special dietry versions are extortionately priced and usually not versions of your favourite cereals - I mean £2.99 for wheat free cornflakes?! Cornflakes are already wheat free!

(This website has got a great choice of other gluten free groceries though, I'd check it out. Haven't bought anything from them yet though so couldn't vouch for the customer service or delivery.)

It had gotten to the point where I would avoid the whole cereal isle in the supermarket and as I feel sick sometimes after breakfast (just another of my weird stomach complaints!) I avoided breakfast altogether for years.

Anyway, I was perusing the cereals in Tesco the other day and found Rice Krispies Multi-Grain Shapes - http://www.kelloggs.co.uk/products/ricekrispies/Cereal/rice_krispies_multi_grain_shapes.aspx

Totally wheat free and actually really yummy.

They are usually £1.99 a box which I can live with and I've started having breakfast again - I feel amazingly healthy and efficient in the mornings again! Marvelous.

  1. I only have yoghurts & fruit for breakfast 'cause I found cereal shopping so frustrating. I'd pick up a box & wheat was always somewhere on there (even as a minor ingredient) & you're right about the prices. if I bought a box of cereal from a health food shop I'd save it for special occasions!

    I've glad a lot of supermarkets cater for wheatfree diets, I live in a rather small town & it wasn't until the past two years that the selection started getting better. & with a larger range I no longer have to be overcharged in the health food shop. whoop.

  2. Hi Nina! I usually have fruit and yoghurt in hotels etc for brekky. Very frustrating indeed that wheat is almost always an ingredient! Even the new oat versions of wheat cereals like oat clusters or whaetever they're called. It's madness!
    Thank goodness for porridge in wintertime anyway :)

  3. I've ordered from Goodness Direct and can heartily recommend them. Usually I get frozen foods, which they send packed in dry ice in polystyrene boxes - never a defrost yet - but I've also bulk-bought flours from them.
