Portable Breakfast {cocomama} + coupon code

I like to make my own breakfast (eggs, oatmeal, smoothies, brown rice pancakes – anything quick, healthy and filling), but I don’t always have time.  That’s why it’s great to have a few portable options.  Oatmeal is great but for those who can’t eat gluten, oats are often off limits.

Cocomama Orange Cranberry Quinoa Cereal

Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) is an ancient grain rich in protein and amino acids.  While most people think of quinoa as a savory staple, this great grain is an excellent breakfast cereal too.  Much like oatmeal, you can cook it with milk (or a milk alternative) and sweeten it with whatever you’d like (maple syrup, brown sugar, fruit, etc.).  It’s fairly quick cooking compared to other whole grains, but not exactly fast enough for a quick homemade breakfast.

Cocomama has taken the work out of preparing it yourself by making tasty little packets of a quinoa breakfast cereal.  No need to add any liquid like instant oatmeal packets – these self-contained packets, which are BPA-free, already have coconut milk added in so all you need to do is heat and eat.  Perfect for stashing in your purse, desk or car for an on-the-go breakfast or snack.

Cocomama’s gluten-free quinoa cereal comes in 4 different flavors:  Wild blueberry, banana cinnamon, orange cranberry and honey almond.  The wild blueberry is my personal favorite.  It’s slightly nutty with just a touch of sweetness, and filling.  I like to add fresh blueberries to it (after heating) for extra sweetness and a contrast in texture.  The cranberry orange flavor is tasty too – it tastes strikingly similar to fresh-baked cranberry orange bread (tart, citrusy and ever so slightly sweet).  Cocomama’s cereals are a great portable breakfast option for the health nut.

These quinoa cereal packets are a great option for nursing moms who have had to eliminate soy and dairy from their diets, since coconut milk is a great dairy/ soy alternative.  There’s also some evidence that coconut oil and milk may increase your milk supply.


Cocomama has generously offered a 15% off discount to ITKM readers until June 20th.  Simply enter ITKM as the discount code at checkout.
