Food Review: Kashi U

I was perusing the cereal isle on Monday night, looking for something new and interesting and hopefully, on sale. And then I saw this:
It kind of jumped out at me because the box is so different-kind of cardboard box-y and natural-y. Then I saw it was a new Kashi cereal and I loves me some Kashi cereal. It was rather pricy at $4.99 a box, but I thought, what the heck...It'll be good blog food review material...so I got it. I splurged for you:)

I had my first bowl this morning and thought it was pretty good. Not the best cereal I've ever had, but pretty tasty. I loved that the flakes were very crunchy all the way til the end of the bowl. There's nothing worse than soggy cereal. (Although, Greg prefers soggy cereal. Blech.) I also thought the flakes were full of flavor, without the sugary sweetness of most cereals. And the walnuts were nice, too. I was most curious about the black currants and acai berries. They weren't chewy, which is a negative for me, because I'm all about some chewy raisins, cranberries and dates in my morning bowl. I could really only see one kind of fruit and I'm not really sure whether they were acai berries or currents, but whatever they were, they were sort of crunchy and very tart. One spoonful had something like 5 or 6 currants/berries and it was like ZING!!! I'm officially awake!

The best part about Kashi U is, of course, the healthiness of it. It was designed to promote the vitality of the 5 body systems: Heart, Bones, Immunity, Digestion and Mind. It is so refreshing to look at the ingredients of your food and see that it's packed full of vitamins, antioxidants, whole grains and fiber. More companies should look to Kashi as an example.

Another really cool thing about Kashi U is the packaging. Not only does it promote vitality of the body, but it also promotes vitality of the environment! The box is made from 100 percent recycled paper, and also contains 80 percent post-consumer content - the highest Kashi could source. Furthermore, the printer that produces the Kashi U box offsets all electricity use with non-polluting wind power and uses 100 percent biodegradable vegetable inks, which means the box is completely compostable.

Very cool. I just hope they put some coupons in the paper!

And here is another cool something that I stumbled upon. Our review of Wild Garden's hummus got a little notice. Click the link to see it and look at May 2008. Yeah, that's right. We're a "Young Generation Website Blog." Y'all better recognize.

Kashi - I've read a few reviews on this cereal and have heard that it 'really' promotes healthy digestive systems. :) Ever since then I've been a bit afraid to try it. Everyone said the taste is ok - let me know what you think of the affects ...

I love Kashi foods. Especially the cereal - the Go Lean Crunch one. I have found it is usually cheaper at Super Target than at the regular grocery. I'll have to be on the lookout for the new one you found. Sounds yum.

I love their high protein cereal for a pre-workout snack. I'm w/ you that I HATE soggy cereal. More power Greg for liking it that way.


Way to represent on the hummus review!

[url=http://earth4energy-greendiyenergy.com/]Earth 4 Energy[/url], Considering the rate at which our planet is getting exploited of its non renewable energy sources and the dramatic climatic changes happening due to the consumption of these minerals, we have to shift focus and keep our options open. Renewable energy is a form of energy that can never extinguish. The electricity generated can be stored in batteries and can be used as a reserve for night time utilization. Renewable energy is a source of energy that can never get exhausted or the energy source that we can never run out off. The old wind mills that you see in villages are proof that wind energy was used even in those days.So these are some of the renewable energy sources that we are using.

Dental hygiene is vasty crucial to total wellness. Most individuals don't believe of their oral hygiene as a component of their health, but quite a few well-being associated problems stem from infections in the mouth. See your dentist twice a year and stop any unecessary health complications that could have been avoided if you did your 2 yearly check ups.
