Thanks to Udi's Gluten Free Foods, the #1 brand of gluten-free baked goods, breakfast can be delicious, healthy, and gluten-free. I had the opportunity to sample some of Udi's breakfast products, and I can't even tell the difference between them and their gluten counterparts. Except for one thing: Udi's taste better than many other brands I've tried.
The Udi's Millet-Chia bread is full of flavor, and very tasty. It's perfect for toast or a sandwich. The slices are a tad smaller than those of the bread we usually buy but denser and more satisfying. Two slices of this wonderful bread have just 160 calories but give you 6 grams of fiber, a whopping 24% of the recommended daily allowance. There's also 5 grams of protein - but above all, it's the deliciousness that won me over. Udi's have four other varieties of bread, including whole grain and omega flax and fiber that I plan to try next.
The Udi's Cinnamon Raisin Bagels are perfect for breakfast - lightly toasted, with a smear of cream cheese or just a touch of butter. Cinnamon and raisins for a touch of sweetness - and a lot of flavor. They make a great school snack, too. They are pre-sliced and can be stored in the freezer for freshness. Just take out as many as you need, and pop them in the toaster. Breakfast is served!
The Udi's Gluten Free Cranberry Granola is a family favorite. We've had it on yogurt, in a blueberry-yogurt-granola parfait, and even plain as a snack. My kids can't get enough of Udi's granola. It's made with certified gluten-free oats, and it's free of not just gluten but dairy, soy, and eggs. As far as granola goes, Udi's Cranberry Granola is perfection, gluten-free. Try the original, vanilla, and au naturel varieties, too.
I found Udi's at several of my neighborhood grocery stores. Now five of Udi's best-selling products are available in 150 Walmart stores across the country. Look for their soft white bread, soft whole grain bread, plain bagels, chocolate chip cookies, and pizza crust in the bakery department. To see if there is a Walmart near you that carries Udi’s, enter your zip code into our store locator: www.udisglutenfree.com/stores.
