I was sent a package of Ruth's Chia Goodness for the purpose of writing this review, no other compensation was received and my view and opinions are my own/honest.
I have to say I really was curious about this product, I have always love granola, muesli type cereals as well as oatmeal so I wondered if it was comparable.
Sort of is what I can say. I do like it but it really isn't like any other type of breakfast (cereal) that I have tried before. I chose to eat it warm but you can eat it either warm or cold no heating is necessary. When you see this it looks like bird seed with bits of fruit, but don't be scare please! It tastes way different then you can imagine.
I enjoyed this and can see myself eating it regularly, not just for breakfast either. The texture is that of umm sort of a more liquid version of tapioca pudding (including those little balls) and the taste is just sweet enough thanks to the fruit. This little power blend is incredibly healthy.
Chia Goodness is Gluten free, Lactose free, high in fiber all because of the little Chia which is a small ancient grain that has 5x more calcium then milk, and a great amount of omega 3 fatty acids (more then even flax seed). In addition to the main ingredient there is hemp seeds, apples, raisins, almonds! Yumm
To all my weight watcher Buddy's a serving is only 2 points! Add skim milk for a 4 point breakfast that will keep you full for hours! Due to this little grain absorbing so many times its size in water creating that full fealing for a longer amount of time. You can purchase at select health food stores or online at a cost of $ 7.50 per bag but this will last a while as a serving is only 2 tablespoons(remember it absorbs liquid think grape nuts hahaha)
