Ezekiel Travel Cereal Mix
Commercialized breakfast cereal can be a difficult product to determine the nutritional value. Many boast health claims of being heart healthy, comprised of whole grains, etc. However, when you scan the ingredients list, that “whole grain” ingredient is the 4th item down, right below cane syrup or high fructose corn syrup, which is below a GMO corn, and just above some other things you can’t pronounce. So much for that!
That is why Ezekiel products are all Pilot Fitness approved. Produced by Food 4 Life, they are comprised of organic, sprouted, whole grains. No artificial sweeteners or preservatives and non-GMO. Just the good stuff and nothing else!
I like to use their cereals to add variety between the Haulin’ Oats, Muesli Magic and Quinoa Flake Mix when I am traveling or even at home. I use the cereal as a base, and add a few other items to boost the nutritional profile and start my day off right! This cereal will not get crushed into a bag of crumbs, so stuff this cereal into any corner of your suitcase to save valuable real estate in you overnight bag. To aid in packing, I will mix one per ziplock for each day of the trip, so it spreads out in the suitcase for easier packing.
This is also a great option for traveling internationally. I haven’t had any problems as this is a pre-packaged product, however as many of us know there are no guarantees with customs officials.
Personally I prefer the almond blend and then add the cinnamon and raisins to it. Personally, the raisins in the cinnamon raisins blend are a bit hard for my liking, but try for yourself and see what resonates, they do tend to soften a little after soaking a few minutes 🙂
1/2 – 1 cup Ezekiel Cereal
2 tbsp Flax Meal
Dash of Clove
Sprinkle of Cinnamon (if using almond blend)
1-2 tbsp of Raisins (if using almond blend)
Dried Blueberries (optional)
Frozen mixed berries (if at home/optional)
Sliced Banana (if at home/optional)
Mix with a packet of your favorite almond milk or water. I have become accustomed to just using water when I am traveling to avoid the extra bulk of traveling with packs of almond milk, but use what suits your taste!
