Attune Foods Erewhon Gluten Free Organic Brown Rice Cereal

erewhon Since I was diagnosed with food sensitivities late last year, it’s been a challenge to find prepackaged foods that I can eat. It’s just not enough for a food to be labeled gluten free. It also can’t contain corn, cane sugar, honey, baker’s yeast or potato starch. This eliminates almost all gluten free breads, cookies and cereals and drinks like soy milk.

Luckily, there’s one cereal out there that’s a great fit for me - Erewhon Gluten Free Organic Brown Rice Cereal.

Love at first bite

As a brand ambassador for Attune Foods, Erewhon’s parent company, I asked them to send out a couple of boxes so I could try it out. I’m so glad I did.

Delicious! Have you ever wanted to hug something because it made you happy? Well, that’s how I felt when I ate my first bite of Erewhon Gluten Free Organic Brown Rice Cereal. I was pleasantly surprised by how good it tasted - exactly how I remember a certain crispy rice cereal (you know, the one that goes snap, crackle and pop) tasted when I was a kid.

Just add a half cup of your favorite type of milk and a cup of fruit or berries, and you have an delicious snack or breakfast. I tried it with Rice Dream® Enriched Original and So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk Beverage plus a little stevia. Both were excellent, though the creaminess of the So Delicious Coconut Milk was decadent, like having half and half on your cereal.

Gluten free and organic! Not only was I thrilled to find a brand I could eat since cereal’s one of my favorite comfort foods, but it’s certified as gluten free and organic.

Erewhon Gluten Free Organic Brown Rice CerealGood for you! Erewhon Gluten Free Organic Brown Rice Cereal is low fat at .5 g of fat per one cup serving. It only has 110 calories, less than 1 g of sugar, 160 mg of sodium, and even 2 g of protein. No fiber, so add some berries or fruit.

You can cook with it! Yes you can make crispy brown rice treats for the kids using marshmallows and butter. Or you can try out these recipes:

I’ll be checking these out, modifying a few to fit my dietary needs, and sharing them with you in the future.

Where to find Erewhon Gluten Free Organic Brown Rice Cereal

You can find Erewhon cereals, and any of the other Attune Foods brands, using their store locator. If you like the cereal and think you’ll be eating a lot of it, ask the store manager if they have case discount. (I know Whole Foods does.)

A great way to save money on gluten free and healthy food products is to buy them online. However, you may want to compare the Amazon price to buying it at your favorite box store, like Sam’s Club or Costco. For example, I found that Amazon was more expensive than Costco on a case of Rice Dream.

At the time I wrote this, Amazon carries Erewhon Gluten Free Organic Brown Rice Cereal for $19.39 for a case of six – that’s $3.23 a box if you get free shipping. However, if you’re going to be eating the cereal on a regular basis, consider signing up for Amazon’s Subscribe & Save service to save 15%. You can sign up to get a new case every one, two, three or six months and cancel the service at any time. It also comes with free shipping. If you do sign up for the service, it’s $2.75 for a box – pretty reasonable, especially for a health food brand.
