With aging comes the natural negative side effects everyone talks about, such as hair loss, a slower metabolism, and more responsibilities. But there’s another cruel part of being an adult that no one talks about: adults have to be aware of just how bad for their health certain foods they loved in childhood really are.
All the Pop-Tarts, Kool-Aid, Cheese Wiz, and sugary cereals you loved eating when you were a kid are foods you will never be able to enjoy again without thinking about the high amount of carbs, sugars, and trans-fats you’re consuming.
You’ve probably given up on ever again eating some of your favorite childhood foods, let alone serving them to your own kids. But one delicious food you don’t have to say goodbye to is the reminiscent, colorful, tasty cereal you’d eat by the bowlful morning and night. This is all thanks to magic spoon cereal, arguably the best creation of the decade.
What Is Magic Spoon Cereal?
Magic Spoon makes healthy cereal with flavors we remember from our childhoods. Because it is truly healthy and completely guilt free, everyone from nutritionists to health coaches to athletes to celebrities have entered the Magic Spoon fan club.
What Makes Magic Spoon the Healthier Alternative to Familiar Tastes?
It’s Sugar Free
Most fun but sugary cereals are sweetened with an abundance of cane sugar, corn syrup, and/or sugar alcohols to get that tasty but nutrition-free flavor. Magic Spoon cereal uses natural stevia (from stevia plants), allulose (a low-calorie sweetener found in raisins and figs), and monk fruit (a zero carb and zero sugar sweetener from a plant found in China and Thailand). In the end, the sweet taste is the same but the imprint on your health is a positive one.
It’s Grain Free
Magic Spoon cereals don’t contain soy, rice, or wheat like their competitors do. They chose smart, delicious alternatives that combine to create the same consistency as the crunchy cereal you’re used to.
It’s Gluten Free
Because Magic Spoon doesn’t include grain or wheat in their cereals, they are also gluten free due to the choice to use naturally gluten free tapioca starch from the cassava root.
It’s Low Carb
With only 4 grams of net carbs per serving size, Magic Spoon’s cereals are suitable for those on the ketogenic, or keto, diet. Where before those living the keto lifestyle had to completely forego sweet, nostalgic cereals, now they can eat Magic Spoon without exiting ketosis. The low carb state is achieved through use of low carb sweeteners, the absence of sugars, and a careful selection of wheat alternatives. Plus, it’s not unusual to consume upwards of 30 grams of carbs per serving of a sweet classic cereal flavor.
It’s High Protein
Magic Spoon has 13 grams of protein per serving, an impressive amount considering that even eating two tablespoons of peanut butter gives only 8 grams of protein; compare this to the maybe 1-3 grams of protein per serving in traditional sugar cereals if you want to be even more impressed.
What Ingredients Are in Magic Spoon Cereal?
Magic Spoon cereal’s nutritional facts are impressive on their own as a healthy and delicious meal option, but when compared with the traditional high-carb, low protein, and chocked-full-of-sugar fun cereals from your childhood (that are still on the market today but just as unhealthy), Magic Spoon’s credentials are outstanding. The fact that they made a tasty alternative to every adult’s favorite childhood cereals that is so healthy is a gamechanger for all cereal-lovers everywhere. Let’s look closer at the ingredients in their cereals that make the flavor and taste possible.
Milk Protein Blend: The mix of whey protein concentrate and casein promise a texture that is smooth and not the gritty texture common in other healthy cereals.
Sweetener Blend: Monk fruit and allulose are the main sweeteners, both natural and low calorie as mentioned above.
Oil Blend: It includes high-oleic sunflower oil, avocado oil, and peanut oil. Monounsaturated fats are healthy fats, which Magic Spoon uses to replace trans fats and saturated fats.
Tapioca Starch: From the cassava root, it is naturally free from gluten.
Chicory Root Inulin: This fiber has prebiotic qualities that help keep your gut healthy.
Peanut Flour and Peanut Extract: The pure peanuts offer plenty of protein and a nutty flavor.
Cocoa Powder, Vegetable Juice, Turmeric Extract, and Spirulina Extract: These ingredients are mainly used as healthy, non-toxic ways to add fun colors to the cereal.
What Favors Does Magic Spoon Carry?
Magic Spoon’s selection covers all your favorite childhood flavors in a revamped and revived fashion. Their current flavor options are as follow:
Fruity (reminiscent of Fruit Loops)
Cocoa (reminiscent of Cocoa Puffs or Chocolate Cheerios)
Frosted (akin to the Frosted Flakes or Frosted Mini Wheats flavor)
Cookies and Cream
Finally, there is an adult-friendly cereal option that still looks and tastes like the ones you loved indulging in when you were a kid. If you want to slip back into joyful childhood memories for the span of a bowl of cereal, you have to try Magic Spoon for yourself.
