It’s DAY 13 of our Celiac Disease Awareness Month and we’re featuring a brand that I heard about from Chrissy from Glam without Gluten. She Instagrammed a bowl of their oatmeal and I asked about it. Turns out, the oatmeal was from a brand called Love Grown Foods – a brand that also reached out to me when I first talked about doing this month-long promotion.
While the Love Grown Foods brand is not a certified gluten-free brand, their oats are gluten-free and the above products are made in a facility that doesn’t contain wheat. Their new Power O’s are awesome – they are BEAN BASED cereal. Seriously, take that all in. Cereal. Made with Beans. However, they are made in a facility made with wheat. So, as a celiac, I cannot tell other celiacs to try these out. However, I ate them and thought they were an awesome new product so if you are gluten intolerant or like my significant other – gluten-free for support, I would suggest at least trying their Chocolate Power O’s – beany, and chocolate-y, and pretty dang great. I’m really hoping they will eventually be made in a facility without wheat and certified gluten-free so you all can try them.
