Breakfast is commonly considered the most important meal of the day, setting a tone for what follows. Starting a day with centering, pure nourishment honors our needs and those with whom we share it. EDEN Müesli, whole grain Cereal Flakes, Fruit Butters, and EDEN Snacks are authentically organic and deliciously provide bracing energy.

Cultivating a habit of taking the few minutes for even a small hearty breakfast delivers deep benefits. Quality is far more important than quantity, and it is what holds potential for a big difference.

Breakfast is the prime opportunity to improve your day. Choices made for it deeply influence mentality and performance. Studies show that breakfast is usually the most nutritious daily meal. They reveal that those who eat breakfast also eat healthier during the day than those who do not. Breakfast eaters also tend to eat less food overall each day.

As the days shorten there comes change in routines for many of us, back to school, back to work, etc. This is a great time to begin honoring yourself with a practice of having an intelligent breakfast, or improving your selections if you already enjoy this beneficial custom. An initial step is to prepare the pantry or cupboards to make doing so easily possible and efficient. Early Fall is the perfect time to stock the pantry with foods we can enjoy, share, and benefit from.

Unfortunately, we are intentionally dissuaded from doing this by an almost complete disconnect in the media and medical community between eating habits/diet and an individual's well being. This is no accident. It intends to keep us susceptible to manipulation by corporate marketing propaganda misinforming us with completely dishonest characterizations of their designed for profit, addicting, imitation food. The media benefits from the advertising sales, companies sell untoward imitation food with moneyed power of suggestion, and government regulators/policy makers are paid off by all of them; pharmaceutical companies thrive.

Pure Whole Grain - Reliable, Energizing Nutrition

Whole grain porridge, like oatmeal, is regaining popularity. All whole grain has always been smart food. Thanks to a renewed demand for ‘ancient’ grains, oatmeal, Kamut® (khorasan), spelt, rye, buckwheat and other grains are strongly benefiting people again whenever they are taken - morning, noon, or night.

It is documented that a version of oatmeal was created in Scotland over 2,000 years ago, and further that ‘porridge’ was largely credited for the survival and proliferation of those who consumed it throughout the Bronze Age. The very same nutritional support, so important to the survival of early Europeans, is still available to us today. Ancient grains are whole grains in general that have come to us largely intact as opposed to grains that have been extensively modified for profit and convenience to our detriment.

EDEN Cereal Flakes are whole grain that is moistened with filtered deep well water before gas fire, ceramic kiln roasting. Immediately as they come out of the roaster they are rolled into flakes. EDEN Rolled Whole Grain Flakes are pure, beneficial cereal grains as they are supposed to be.

EDEN Oat Flakes are a powerhouse of satisfying nourishment for the cereal bowl. Mixing them with EDEN Rye, Brown Rice, Spelt, and/or Kamut Flakes provides wonderful taste, texture, and nutritional variation. EDEN whole grain cereal flakes are a stupendous source of satisfying whole grain nourishment.

Kamut Triticum turanicum ancient wheat native to Asia Minor and Egypt was brought to Montana in the U.S.A. in 1949. Its golden grains or berries are three times the size of modern wheat. It is the highest protein wheat, is closely related to the ancient grain spelt, and is a relative of durum wheat. Spelt Triticum spelta is a distant relative of modern wheat first grown about 9,000 years ago in the Fertile Crescent area of the Middle East and northern Greece. Spelt's genome has not been tampered with and is not hybridized. It is known as a ‘gentle’ grain with a protein structure that is easier to digest than modern wheat. Rye is one of the unique grains that offer ‘complete’ protein containing all of the amino acids.

Smoothie Bowl Superchargers

In addition to the traditional use of grain flakes in porridge, Müesli, baked goods, etc., whole grain cereal flakes in smoothie bowls is another means of enjoying whole grain. These bowls begin with a smoothie blend of choice and EDENSOY is a very smart base ingredient. They are topped with grain, fruit (fresh, dried, or both), seeds, and nuts. Smoothie bowls are a great opportunity to add EDEN pantry foods to breakfast. Any one of seven EDENSOY flavors provides a superlative smoothie base. EDEN Fruit Butters enhance the smoothie with goodness and benefits. EDEN Müesli and EDEN Snacks are smart organic smoothie bowl toppers. Find your preference.
