I packed up things over at Matt’s house (where I lived all summer) and moved out. While packing up my dry goods, Branden made fun of me for how much I eat like a hippie. I had three kinds of granola in my cabinet, so what?
Anyway, I just wanted to give my shining endorsement on a product that I just tried for the first time this morning: Archer Farms’s Blueberry Granola with Flax cereal. I got it form Target back in May and haven’t tried it until today, but I have to say that I wish I had opened it before.
First of all, this product has blueberries in it. Not like little lame shriveled up blueberries that are bitter and kind of crunchy, but blueberries that look like blueberries. BLUEBERRIES! Not fresh, obviously, but once they hit milk, they might as well be.
It has Flax in it, which, I’m not really actually sure what that has to do with anything, but I looked up some benefits of a diet with flax, and healthcastle.com tells me that:
Its high content of alpha linolenic acids has made the ancient flax seed become our modern miracle food. Alpha linolenic acid is a type of plant-derived omega 3 fatty acid, similar to those found in fish such as salmon. Benefits of flax seed as shown in many studies include lowering total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol (the Bad cholesterol) levels. Other benefits show that flax seed may also help lower blood triglyceride and blood pressure. It may also keep platelets from becoming sticky therefore reducing the risk of a heart attack.
Anyway, great cereal. So happy I bought it.
