After a bit of a blogging break (real life gets in the way of sometimes), I am excited to announce another gluten-free guide giveaway. I recently received a sampler pack from Kay’s Naturals. They make a variety of gluten-free low-carb snacks. One of the challenges of managing Celiac and Diabetes are the varied and usually higher number of carbs in gluten-free versions of cereals and breads. I was excited to try Kay’s to see how they tasted and if they were actually lower-carb.
The results were mixed. I LOVED a few items – the cinnamon toast pretzels had a hint of sweet and a nice pretzel crunch. The white cheddar cheese Kruncheeze have a delicious cheddar flavor and are a satisfying snack. My favorite though was the French Vanilla Protein Cereal which is surprisingly low in carbs, holds up well in milk with great crunch and flavor that isn’t too sweet.
A few of their products were just ok (e.g. the apple cinnamon cereal) and a couple tasted like vegetables or what I imagine cat food to taste like – stay clear of the golden butter pretzels. As much as I like vegetables it wasn’t what I was looking for in a pretzel and though Cat is one of my nicknames, I don’t aspire to maintain a feline diet…
That said, I will be placing a big order of French Vanilla Protein Cereal and am pretty excited to have more options for plane/travel food since Kay’s Naturals come in individual serving packs.
Now to the good part – one lucky reader will receive their very own Kay’s Naturals sampler pack. Leave a comment below describing your favorite breakfast by Wednesday April 22, 2009 at 11:59 EDT. The winner will be selected at random from the entries.
Does anyone eat a savory breakfast like Mark Bittman? My favorite breakfast is soft scrambled eggs with fresh whole milk ricotta and truffle salt or a super healthy frittata (seriously I’d rather make that at home than pay for some fancy NYC brunch – yum)Tweet Pin It
Is there a restaurant or bakery you want me to check-out? A product you want me to review? Any other questions or feedback?
