New food crush: TEECHIA

IMG_5387I have to admit, I have a new food crush, and its name is TeeChia.

If I were to be an animal when it came to breakfast, I would have to say I’d be something like a gerbil or maybe a goat or giraffe or something, because I love my whole grains.  Growing up, before I realized what was making me bloat all the time, I had grains for breakfast every morning.  I miss that.  They taste so good, and I imagine they would make you feel great, too, if they didn’t send your stomach into a full space orbit every time they hit the small intestine.

IMG_5381TeeChia was like a little premature Easter Bunny gift sitting on my front porch last night when I arrived home late from work.  The kind people of Santa Barbara had mailed two Bubble Child-safe samples to Bubble Child headquarters (aka my apartment) in Portland, Oregon, for some taste reviews.  Well, TeeChia, your review gets a figurative stamp of approval and an A+.

Composed of tasty nuggets of dried fruit, chia, quinoa, amaranth, pumpkin, and flax, this cereal satisfies both your morning crunch and cream.  Pour a little warm water on this blissfully just-sweet-enough cereal, let it expand, and top with your favorite milk (or not), and it is a powerful start to your day!  Like the taste, the cereal is loaded with good energy: 6g of fiber, Omega-3 Fatty Acids, 26g of whole grains (which is my lucky number, so I am pleased!), and 6g of protein per serving.  It’s the good energy that stays throughout the day, not food that stays in the belly.

TeeChia is available in various health food stores and online at TeeChia.com.  Cool thing: if you have a coffee allergy, they are the ones who make Teeccino, an excellent caffeine-free coffee alternative.
