Vigilant Eats - Superfood Cereals - New Flavors

Food is the fuel that your body uses to function on a day-to-day basis so it would make sense that one would want to put high quality fuel in their body to achieve maximum functionality. Enter Vigilant  Eats Superfood Cereals into the picture. These oat-based cereals are made with nothing but healthy ingredients including lots of superfoods. And I couldn't think of a better way to start my day than with cereals like these.

You may recall that I had written about these cereals in the past when I first discovered the Goji-Cacao flavor. Well, since the introduction of that cereal, Vigilant Eats has introduced three others on the market and I just had to try them. Simply put -- they did not disappoint.

I'll start with the Espresso Maca Mulberry. Now anyone who knows me knows that I avoid caffeine as much as possible, but this cereal sounded good enough to make the exception.  Imagine espresso, maca, soft sun-dried mulberries, crunchy cacao nibs, smoky mesquite powder plus maple and lucuma powder, and oat and hemp flour sweetened with coconut palm sugar.  That's a mouthful of superfoods.

The Maca Double Chocolate fills your mouth with chocolate goodness and finishes it off with big chunks of dates. It left me saying, "Healthy chocolate for breakfast? Yes, please!" Inside you'll find gluten-free oats, cacao nibs, coconut palm sugar, cacao powder, dates, oat flour, coconut flour, maple powder, mesquite powder, lucuma powder, maca root, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and hemp flour. Mmm, mmm, good.

Finally, I tried the Coconut Maple Vanilla. This one will make anyone realize how good good-for-you food can taste. I'm talking huge slices of coconut and big chunky dates. It seriously was like having dessert for breakfast. I'd prefer it to coconut milk ice cream any day.

Oh, and I should mention that these cereals are perfect for when you are stuck in a hotel as they each come with a spoon and you just add cold water. Easy as can be. I've started bringing them with me on all my flights!

And on top of it all, the ingredients are certified organic, gluten-free, non-GMO, and vegan. Most recently, Prevention Magazine chose the cereals as one of the 100 Most Cleanly Packaged Foods for 2013.  Because these cereals are packed with such pure ingredients, they are a bit pricey at $5 per container, but we all know that, unfortunately, good, organic food is often expensive. Luckily, the guys over at Vigilant Eats were nice enough to offer my readers a discount! By using the code "VVEGAN," you can get a 10% discount off your order when you place it direct through Vigilant Eats here. And there is free shipping too.  So order a bunch now. Luckily for me, they are now in many Whole Foods stores across the Mid-Atlantic region. It is time to stock up!
