Happy July 4th to all my friends in the US! In light of the long weekend I’m thinking today might be a little quieter around here but you never know. We all still have to eat this week 🙂
I don’t sign up to do too many food reviews because well it doesn’t have a whole lot to do with organizing. But when I was recently contacted about trying out Gluten Free Rice Chex I got very excited. It seems I’ve been hearing about this cereal for forever on food allergy message boards I use to participate on over at Kids with Food Allergies (an amazing site by the way!) and I could never try them because they weren’t available in Canada. Until now that is! They have arrived in Canadian stores…saw them at IGA just last week even….yay!!
As you know my son has many food allergies (dairy, gluten, eggs, fish and nuts) so I’m always happy to find a “regular” cereal he can eat rather than a specialty one that can often cost so much more. My son really liked these. As for myself I love to snack on dry cereal at nighttime (I like to crunch). The Rice Chex make for an awesome snack because they are only .5 grams of fat and 110 calories per one cup. Yay! I also tried out the Gluten Free Honey Nut Chex (my son can’t eat it due to his nut allergies) and liked them for a sweeter snack 🙂
I had a wonderful visit with all my company last week but I definitely needed the three hour nap I took this afternoon 🙂 Hopefully this week I’ll be able to catch up around here including doing something about my sadly neglected email…yikes!
Have a great week everyone!!
