A review on an instant cereal that we tried camping over the weekend, called Eco-Planet Instant Hot Cereal. You can find it at http://ecoheavenllc.com/Eco-Planet/Gluten_Free_Instant_Hot_Cereal.html. I bought it at Whole Foods, after reading the ingredients. I was SOLD when I saw that it contained chia seeds! Extremely high in omega-3, fiber (6 grams which is 24% of our daily intake needs!), protein (6 grams, equivalent to 11% of our needs). If you’re backpacking, you want protein but you also want to consider the fact that you can’t keep meat cold. Or if you’re a vegetarian/ vegan. This is a GREAT option to have! The only thing I have to say is, add sweeteners of some sort to it. It’s very bran-y (taste wise, not actual!), with seven types of grains. I wished I had a packet of raw sugar with me. I’ll do that next time. It’s a great source of energy for a strenuous trip!
Just find a way to sweeten it up. Maybe the other flavors would be better? We only had original. If you’ve tried it, let me know what you think. Did you have to add anything to it, and what?
