Canyon Oats provides wholesome on-the-go breakfast alternative

We are all busy, whether or not you have a family. Breakfast can be one meal we skip or just grab something convenient which isn't always healthy.  Have you considered a cup of oatmeal? One wholesome breakfast alternative comes from Canyon Oats -- a family-owned business located in Powell, Wyoming.

The hot cereal got its start in a coffee shop and roaster in St. George, Utah and began with simple, whole ingredients: rolled oats, sea salt, cinnamon, and golden flax seed. The company soon expanded and began rolling in maple sugar, almonds, tart cherries, cranberries and walnuts. More wholesome ingredients packed in convenient, on-the-go style cups.

I brought some samples home from a gluten-free expo (thanks Canyon Oats!) and the consensus was "delicious" and "yummy."

Need another selling point? The company’s oatmeal products are gluten-free! Oats don’t contain gluten naturally, of course, but many commercial vendors produce their oatmeal in facilities that also manufacture wheat—producing enough of a contamination to potentially harm a consumer who has severe gluten sensitivity.

The cups are sold across the country at select coffee shops. Check out the company’s website for purchase locations or to order the product online. Might be a good option on your next busy morning.
