Van's Natural Foods Giveaway

I've reviewed Van's products quite a few times on here and I love that they keep letting me check out their new products. I'm not exaggerating when I say they are my favorite breakfast food company, mainly because I can trust what's in their products. I recognize all of the ingredient names and my kids love them (specifically the chocolate chip waffles).

Van’s has just launched Power Grains, the first high protein waffle nationally available. Each serving, made with cracked red wheat and steel cut oats, offers 10 full grams of protein, more than an egg. As the journal Obesity recently found, eating a breakfast high in protein helps keep people feel full longer, with fewer food cravings, than other breakfasts. And a study published in July by the International Journal of Obesity has found that children who eat breakfast tend to gain less weight over time than children who skip breakfast.

Like all of Van’s products, Power Grains are made with high-quality, natural ingredients and frozen for freshness so they don’t contain nasty preservatives. Van’s is proud of its ingredients, and makes its foods with the recipe list you’d use at home. (And Cooking Light just named their 8 Whole Grain waffle the best one on the market!)

The new Power Grains waffles are really yummy. They are not available in all stores yet, but thanks to the handy dandy store locator feature on Van's website, I was able to find some at my local Whole Foods Market. I got them in 'totally natural' and they are beyond delicious. For me this is a great way to get some added protein while I train for the half marathon, without having to eat more eggs (which get old real quick), grilled chicken (again, gets old), or a protein bar.
