Food review: Two Moms in the Raw Granola
The other day, Oliver, my husband, bought a new raw granola cereal to try out. He had been eating Lydia’s raw cereal for about a year now and had been enjoying it, but wanted to try something new. I am not a big Lydia’s cereal fan (but I love those bars!), as I find it too dry. Oliver ended up getting a raw Gojiberry cereal from the company Two Moms in the Raw . He kept on asking me to “give it a try” for about 48 hours. I kept on declining, assuming that it would be “too dry”.
Well, yesterday morning I finally gave it a try and you know what? It was FANTASTIC! I am eating it now as I type. It is perfectly moist with crunchy pieces of perfectly sprouted and dehydrated millet. Other ingredients in the Gojiberry cereal are Millet, Buckwheat, Coconut, Flaxseed, Sunflower Seeds, Seasame Seeds, Pecans, Almonds, Pepitas, Apples, Agave, Cinnamon, Sea Salt and Gojiberries.
I give this cereal 4.5 out of 5 stars. The -.5 deduction comes from the fact that I think it’s a little too sweet, so I can’t really eat a lot of it in a cereal bowl without feeling like I’m going into Agave Nectar “sugar shock”. The price is also quite high ($10 if you order online). It’s a small company and their food is organic, raw, and vegan, so I do understand that their prices will be higher than a box of Cheerios (but far healthier of course). This does make me sad when I realize how mostly class privileged individuals, such as myself, can really only afford raw foods that are pre-packaged at $10 a pop.
All and all, I am thankful that Two Moms in the Raw created a raw cereal that I find moist and crunchy! Thanks!
