Why Vigilant Eats Superfood Cereal is a great start to the morning
Vigilant Eats aims to upgrade the standard morning routine with recipes that include the highest quality organic superfoods, along with Montana-grown, gluten-free oats. A hearty breakfast acts as fuel for the day, and products like this fiber-rich cereal can provide all the energy needed while still having great flavor.
This superfood dish is also great for those who follow strict diets since Vigilant Eats only provides only foods that are certified organic, gluten-free, non-GMO, vegan, and kosher.
The health benefits of coconut
Coconut is a prominent ingredient in Vigilant Eats hot cereal. The organic dried coconut, coconut palm sugar, and coconut flour provide impressive taste and chewy texture, but also a number of health benefits, including:
A wealth of good-for-you fats
Though coconut has long been dogged for its high saturated fat content, it’s important to note that not all fats are created equal and some are actually essential for the body to operate. For example, the fat that is found in coconuts is known as medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), which are considered good fats. When MCTs are consumed they go directly from the intestinal tract and then to the liver where they are transformed into instant fuel. This process happens so quickly that MCT-rich foods like coconut immediately boost energy levels in the body, and won’t get stored as body fat. This, in effect, also increases the body’s metabolic rate and keeps the thyroid nourished, both of which makes it easier to burn fat and keep consistent with weight management.
Extra vitamins and minerals
Coconut meat also contains a few vitamins and nutrients—specifically vitamins A and E, polyphenols, and phytosterols—that work together to decrease levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol. This is also known as the bad type of cholesterol, which can linger in the body and place people at greater risk for cardiovascular disease and other heart-related complications. But, with a good amount of nutrient-rich foods like coconut, the more likely it is to decrease levels of LDL for a happy, healthy life.
Less sugar impact
Another great benefit of Vigilant Eats Coconut Maple Vanilla Superfood Cereal is that it’s considered a low-glycemic food. Unlike traditional super sweet cereal flakes, the sugar in this container solely comes from natural sources like dates, maple powder, and coconut palm sugar, which are not refined and don’t process the same way in your body. Because of the extra fiber, the food also gets digested slower so it won’t lead to a sugar rush (or impending crash). That’s important for diabetics that are monitoring blood glucose, or anyone trying to keep levels at bay.
Tasty toppings for Vigilant Eats Coconut Maple Vanilla Superfood Cereal
While you can enjoy every bite of Vigilant Eats Coconut Maple Vanilla Superfood Cereal on its own, adding in any one of these tasty ingredients can make it even more delicious.
Enhance that fresh coconut flavor with some smoky maple syrup. This grade A sweetener is made late in the season when the sap has the lowest sugar content, allowing the strong maple flavors to stand out even more and minimize the impact on the body. Add a dollop on top of this warm cereal or swirl it in to enjoy all the bold, rich flavors in every scoop.
Add more texture and crunch to your breakfast with some roasted almonds. These hearty morsels are filled with protein, fiber, vitamin E, potassium, and other nutrients. Toss them whole on top of Vigilant Eats Coconut Maple Vanilla Superfood Cereal, or crush a few and sprinkle them inside the container. See how the rich, buttery flavor is absolutely irresistible alongside the fresh coconut flakes.
Create a fruity, delicious trifecta by adding in some seedless raisins alongside the dates and coconut flakes. These are an excellent on-the-go option, too, featuring organic white grapes with no artificial chemicals. Just a handful provides subtle sweetness and some more of that wonderfully chewy texture.
These raw cacao nibs from Ecuador are rich and dense, giving off hints of familiar chocolate and coffee flavors. Add sparingly (they are slightly bitter!) to the top of Vigilant Eats Coconut Maple Vanilla Superfood Cereal for a better breakfast or enjoy as part of a late-night treat after dinner.
Nothing quite beats brown sugar sprinkled atop a hot cereal or oatmeal. Add some to Vigilant Eats Coconut Maple Vanilla Superfood Cereal and watch as the sugar melts into a gooey, mouthwatering syrup. Because this product is soft and fine-grained, it will absorb into the cereal in no time and provide a memorable molasses flavor.
Reviews For Coconut Maple Vanilla
Based on 23 Reviews
This is okay but it tastes better if I add honey or fruit or something else to enhance the flavor. Otherwise, it's sort of bland.
pretty good. not bad. fair-to-middlen. more grains.
- CC MO
Mmmm - so yummy!! I used a bit of coconut milk powder (purchased on Thrive) and hot water and absolutely loved the taste. Water would have been just fine as the product is already tasty. It was hearty and I would recommend to someone looking for healthier carbs, or someone looking for a g-free replacement for their regular cereal/oats/granola.
This is my dream morning meal! I can't really explain what it is - I mean, it tastes delicious and it's very easy to make - but I think what I really love the most is that it is a very filling and wholesome breakfast that fuels me for a longer time than my other hot cereals. LOVE THIS! Can't wait to take it backpacking, too!!
Very healthy delicious cereal , a must every morning !!
So Healthy, So Good!
I'm not a big fan of coconut, but pair it with maple, vanilla and tiny bits of dates and you have my new favorite morning meal.
This was outstanding texture flavor everything magnificent
Awesome flavor. One of my favorite quick and easy post workout carb sources!
Great for a quick breakfast
Not too sweet. coconut shavings adds nice flavor and texture
This is perfect for breakfast in the go. It has just the right amount of sweetness and a wonderful texture
If this keeps my family away from McD carb loaded breakfasts, I will buy them forever> Not only is the price great but they taste fantastic. My pickiest eater in the house ate all of them already so I have to order more.
Tasty, easy cereal option
This cereal had a good flavor and texture for the most part, though the large raw coconut flakes took some getting used to. I had it hot; not sure if I would have liked it cold, because of the coarse grains.
Coconut Maple Vanilla
This is a great snack that I can send to my daughter in college. It has quality ingredients she's familiar with at home with the convenience of microwaving it in her dorm room.
Holy Moly that's a lot of sugar
Nutritious and tasty, but 21 grams of sugar? geez
Very good oats! I prepared with milk once opened (I wish I made overnight oats with this), and it was very good, although I did not taste the maple! Highly recommend, kept me full until lunch!
Sticks to your ribs!
These are the best quick breakfast! This is my favorite flavor, but all four of them are delicious. I keep these in my desk at work add hot water and eat them like oatmeal, or when I have time at home, I heat up some almond milk. Yum!
These are also just so convenient; they even come with their own little spoon!
I love that I have a gluten-free option for breakfast that tastes so good, and lasts in my stomach. I'll eat just one of these for breakfast, and I'm not hungry at all until just before lunch. These are absolutely perfect!
- Antonio Mullins
This didn't really do it for me. The flavor was rather bland and even after adding extra liquid it was too thick.
It gets three stars for the nutritional value, convenience factor and the cute little spoon that comes with it.
I'm not sure if I received a 'bad batch' or if this just naturally has a bitter, almost savory, chemically-laden flavor but it most decidedly tasted absolutely NOTHING like Coconut, Vanilla OR Maple.... if ONLY!
I love these cereals! So yummy and quick and nourishing. A bit on the pricier end, but a great breakfast for jam-packed mornings! I love all the flavors, but this one especially :)
So good and very filling.
LOVE IT. SO CONVENIENT. GREAT TEXTURE, BEST TASTING INSTANT CEREAL I'VE TRIED. A LITTLE HIGH IN CARBS, FAT & SUGAR. BUT WORTH THE TASTE!!!
- Jodie K
I tried it cold with organic coconut milk and it was amazing. Will buy many, many more.
