TOP PICK OF THE WEEK: Organic Stoneground Flakes

We first learned of Back To The Roots, an environmentally-focused start-up founded in Oakland, California by two Berkeley grads, when they sent us a Mushroom Farm two years ago. It’s a kit to grow mushrooms indoors that utilizes recycled coffee grounds.

The company has since created Water Garden, a device that sits over a fish tank and grows herbs; and Garden In A Can, their own version of herbs-in-a-can.

These are specialty products. But recently, the company launched another product that has a place in every kitchen.

It’s a delicious, whole-grain breakfast cereal, with the curiously generic name of Organic Stoneground Flakes.

They’re not exactly flakes, but shaped like tiny bowls. That adds to their charm; but whatever the shape, we love their flavor and the wholesome nutrition.

Organic Stoneground Flakes are our new favorite cereal!

WHAT’S IN THEM

Just three ingredients: organic wheat, a bit of sugar and a dash of salt.

The U.S.-grown, hard red spring wheat is 100% stoneground, the ancient milling process that preserves all the protein, fiber and flavor of the whole grain.

The cereal is non-GMO and has a whopping 40g of whole grain per serving, almost your daily requirement of 48g; along with 6g protein and 5g fiber. There’s just a pinch of salt, and a small amount of sugar that balances the flavors without tasting sweet.
 
MORE GOOD NEWS

Packaged in an easily recyclable milk carton, the “flakes” are a crunchy snack from the box, a dry cereal to top with milk or yogurt, a crunchy topping for fruit salad, an ingredient for trail mix.

An order of two 11-ounce boxes is $9.99 plus $2 shipping on the company website.

The product’s mission is to “pour it forward”: Every photo posted to Facebook.com/backtotheroots generates a donated box of Stoneground Flakes to an elementary school cafeteria.

WHY YOU NEED WHOLE GRAINS.
