REVIEW: [me] & goji Custom Artisanal Cereal

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. I'm not talking about the time of day when the meal is eaten; I mean the food that is typically served for breakfast. I could eat breakfast foods-especially cereal- for every meal.

I don't know what it is about cereal that I love so much. Perhaps its the memory of digging to the bottom of the box to get the prize before my brother or sisters did. (I don't do that anymore. :) ) Maybe I just like the convenience of merely pouring it into the bowl, adding the milk (just a little bit!), and it's ready to eat. Who knows.

What I am certain of is that I spend far too much time in the cereal aisle of the grocery store. I find myself reading labels way more than I ever have before. I want to be sure that I am giving my family healthy, yet tasty, cereal.

When Mom Fuse asked if I wanted to review Custom Artisanal Cereal from [me] & goji, I was excited. I figured it would be a lot of fun creating my own cereal mix. I wasn't prepared for all of the choices I would have to make, however.

I am not complaining. Creating the cereal took time, but I enjoyed the process. There are seriously over 40 healthy ingredients to choose from.

First, I chose the base for my cereal. I went with artisanal cereal- traditional, crunchy cereal flakes that Americans love combined with the nutritional righteousness of raw rolled flakes found in muesli . Next, I added some wheat germ, organic, gluten-free corn flakes, choco peanuts (had to add a bit of sweetness), golden granola, cacao nibs (these are amazing!), sunflower seeds and almonds. Finally, I named my cereal and submitted the order. I could not wait for it to arrive!

Once my family and I tasted the cereal, we had a bit of a disagreement on how it would be shared. I really wanted to be selfish and keep it for myself, but knowing how healthy it was for my family, and the fact that my kids would eat it, I caved. With all of us eating it, the capsule of cereal only lasted a few days, and now we want to try another.

A little about [me] & goji-
