My favorite brand

So as I've mentioned, I am gluten intolerant, almost always vegetarian, and am 90% vegan (mostly because eggs and dairy make me sick anyway)! It hasn't always been easy-peasey to eliminate all these gluten, dairy, meat filled products- lemme tell you. When I first started being g-free, I had no idea what gluten even was or what it was in! Luckily my mom is also g-free, so she knew a thing or two about it. Finally, after a year or so of eliminating it from my diet, I became a compulsive label reader, and can spot ingredients I can't eat in a heartbeat.

Now, being a member of the Scott family, it's kind of a requirement to love cereal. For Christmas each year we each [grandkids aka my sisters, cousins, and me] get a box of cereal as a gift then eat it all weekend with our family. We grew up mowing down on all cereals, all the time, anytime. Then after becoming g-free, I felt like I couldn't eat any of the good cereals that everyone else was eating, and it sucked. :(

While grocery shopping with my madre one day, we came upon this green box of cereal with a jungle animal on it... after a few seconds of figuring out what it is, we saw it was a cereal made by the brand Envirokidz. I immediately fell in love. There are five different kinds of Envirokidz cereals:

Gorilla Munch (similar to Cap'n Crunch)

Koala Crisp (similar to Cocoa Crispies)

Leapin' Lemurs (like Reese's Puffs... Which is Andrew's, My best friend's, and my favorite!! :) )

Amazon Frosted Flakes (similar to Kelloggs Frosted Flakes)

Peanut Butter Panda Puffs (also a favorite of ours!)

So now that you know how amazing the cereals are, here's the best part: 1% of the sales goes to wildlife protection and habitat conservation! On each box there is a type of animal that is endangered or struggling, and it gives information on that animal!

Not only dooes Envirokidz sell cereal, it sells cereal bars as well! Which is are just as tasty. :)

Oh and each product they make has always been gluten free- it says it on each package. ;)

Even if you're not gluten free, you should try some of these products. Andrew loves them!
