PRODUCT REVIEW: Uncle Sam Cereal

Have you ever heard of a wheat berry? Are you thinking it's a fruit? Well, it absolutely is not. Wheat berry is a term used to refer to the whole wheat kernel that is made up of the bran, germ, and endosperm. Guess what else? A delicious and good-for-you cereal is on the market produced by Attune Foods. Their Uncle Sam cereal line showcases different varieties of toasted whole wheat berry flakes. All varieties come packaged with flaxseed, but it can also be found with honey and almonds and strawberry.

My favorite as a stand alone cereal is the strawberry version. The freeze dried strawberries add a delicious kick to a morning meal that wakes up the taste buds very nicely. I've enjoyed this cereal with almond milk.This is a keeper for rotating through my morning meals.

I quickly made a last minute home-made trail mix on my way out the door one day with the honey almond version. I added walnuts, more almonds (because I love almonds!), and some shredded coconut. My home-made trail mix was absolutely delicious!

All varieties of the toasted whole wheat berry flakes are low in sodium unlike many other cereals out there. In addition, this line of cereal is lightly sweetened giving a nice additional flavoring. Many other cereals have a lot of added sugar to them. With the whole wheat berry flakes, you do not skip out on flavor at all. The other pluses to this cereal is that all varieties have a good amount of fiber and protein on top of having that heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids from the flaxseeds! If you want to try a new cereal, try the Uncle Sam Toasted Whole Wheat Berry Flakes line for good nutrition and good taste.
