Today was Day #4 of Chocolate and Hemp Theme Week.

I remember enjoying muesli, the Swiss/German uncooked oat-based cold cereal that pre-dated* most granolas. Today's Goji Cacao Superfood oat cereal from Vigilant Eats (Bloomington, IN), reminded me of a hipper, gluten-free, organic version of muesli with a few more exotic ingredients thrown in for good measure: crunchy cacao nibs; chewy, slightly fruity, dried goji berries; and hemp flour -- as well as gluten-free oats and cinnamon.

All I needed to do was to add some cold water to savor the satisfying mix of flavors and textures in a conveniently packaged breakfast (single serving container with a foldable spoon). And this hearty cold cereal kept me going all morning. And, at the same time, I could, the Vigilant Eats website promised, participate in the "delicious justice"(superfood) that was helping to power the latest food revolution. It's good to see this kind of passion, as it takes a lot of energy to keep a small business going and growing. So, hats off to the gang at Vigilant Eats for making a tasty, healthy, gluten-free cereal alternative.

*Most credit a Swiss physician for developing and popularizing muesli, around 1899-1900.
