Happy Birthday Annie's Homegrown!

Author: healthnuttxo

In honor of Annie’s Homegrown‘s birthday, I think it would be appropriate to do a review on a cereal I bought, Bunny Love. This cereal is an all natural, whole grain, corn & oat cereal, made without preservatives or fillers, and is vegan.

I decided to pick it up at the store because it was pretty enticing and the nutritional stats fit for what I generally look for in cereal. It was a royal purple box, with pictures of bunny-shaped cereal on the cover. Cute! It was only 110 calories per serving with 3 grams of fiber, and 2 grams of sugar, so I figured it was worth a shot.

I tried this cereal a couple of ways (including yesterday’s recipe!). I poured a bowl of it and examined the shapes- adorable! So cute!

Each piece certainly is crunchy and has a mild, toasted oat flavor.  In fact, this cereal really isn’t sweet at all. I probably wouldn’t eat this on it’s own (as I had hoped for from the cute shapes!), but I found it was good paired with some flavored yogurt. Stonyfield Farm Banilla yogurt and Chobani strawberry greek yogurt were two excellent ways to pair with the cereal. It provided sweetness and a nice crunch to the yogurt. I also liked this cereal paired with some chocolate and vanilla soy milk. I’m sure you can use almond milk as well, but the flavors in the soymilk went nicely with the oaty taste of the bunnies.

Overall, given that it was not intended to be a sugary cereal, I give this cereal 3 1/2 stars, by itself, 4 paired with yogurt or flavored soymilk. The nutrionals are excellent-whole grains, fiber and all natural- but I prefer my cereal just a wee bit sweeter so I can munch it out of the box.

1 serving is 110 calories, 1.5 grams of fat, 22 carbohydrates, 3 grams of fiber and 3 grams of protein.

Chobani Greek Flavored Yogurt

We all know my love for yogurt. Now it’s time to explore on the GREEK side of yogurt!
What exactly is greek yogurt? Well, after the milk is heated and cultured to make yogurt, it is then allowed to sit and strain, so the “whey” is removed. What’s left is a creamier and thicker version of yogurt.
I got the pleasure of trying Chobani’s Greek Non Fat Flavored Yogurts in Blueberry, Peach and Strawberry varieties. But how did these play out for my normal love of yogurt?
Quite excellently. Each yogurt has the desired fruit on the bottom, so you can eat it swirled together , seperately, or do what I did, and eat half the yogurt and half the fruit topping on the spoon at once. The yogurt is extremely thick and creamy, it’s hard to believe there’s no fat in these! The peach flavor was my favorite, surprisingly. Normally I’m a blueberry girl, but the peach flavor was GREAT! The peaches tasted fresh, and they had just the right amount of sweetness for the greek yogurt. The blueberry flavor and strawberry flavor were also yummy. There were real bitty blueberries and chunks of strawberries that pack a tough antioxidant punch in each cup.
These yogurts were much more substantial than regular yogurt as well. I noticed i was significantly fuller (due to the higher protein content versus regular yogurt) when I paired the Chobani yogurt with some whole grain cereal for some extra crunch. These were great-4 Stars- you should definitely try them. I can’t wait to go out and buy the pomegranate and pineapple flavors!

Each yogurt is 140 calories, 0 grams of fat, 20 carbohydrates, >1 gram of fiber, and 14 grams of protein. You also get 15% of daily calcium and probiotics!
