My New Favorite Cereal: Van’s Cinnamon Heaven (It’s Gluten Free and Vegan!)

vansandalvinI don’t have cereal for breakfast. If I’m making breakfast for Ava, I usually make pancakes (see previous post about the best pancake mix in the world). If it’s just me and I’m not cooking for a toddler, usually I have an egg over medium, or a flatbread breakfast sandwich. Or sometimes just a spinach and banana smoothie, mixed up in my Magic Bullet with a bit of almond milk.

waystoeatvansI love to cook all sorts of things for dinner, especially savory Italian dishes like baked ziti and lasagna. But dinner looks very different if it’s just me. When I don’t have someone to cook dinner for, I usually make lunch the largest meal of the day and then just have something small for dinner, like cereal, or maybe an Easy Mac cup. I know, not necessarily the healthiest but at least low enough on calories. I love Macaroni and Cheese!

vansnutritionCereal is one of my favorite low-cal go-to options for dinner alone. I should note that I’m never really alone since I’m always surrounded by dogs. I recently discovered a new awesome cereal at Sprouts. It’s called Cinnamon Heaven, and it is made by Van’s Natural Foods, a Vernon-based company that you may known for their yummy organic frozen waffles. You can also buy it on Amazon, and yes it is worth buying 6 boxes! Van’s Cinnamon Heaven cereal is gluten free and vegan (free of meat, fish, seafood, eggs, dairy and honey). Unlike a lot of cereals, there are no synthetic preservatives, artificial flavors or artificial colors. I have it with unsweetened Almond Milk (30 calories per serving), and sprinkle on some organic raspberries.
