Nature's Path Flax Plus Cereal


Pros: Super Yummy, Good way to get Omega-3

Cons: All cereal is so expensive these days

I try to get my flax in, and this cereal's taste could only be described as "super good."  Normally I put flax seeds on my yogurt, or in homemade grandola bars, or eat flax seed bread or engligh muffins. Or some mixture of all of the above. I reccomend getting flax all of those ways.


This cereal is a great flax vehicle for my aresenal. I tasted it, and then went to Trader Joe's to find it. Trader Joe's had lots of other Nature's Path cereals, but not Maple Nut Crunch, which has caught my attention now. I will keep looking.


Cereal is so expensive these days. I read Omnivoures Dilemma, about how the processing of grains allows manufacturers to add so much cost to the product, and artifically and unnecessarily build up the food processing industry. So I tend to shy away from cereal. But I will make an exception for this one.


Nature's Path Flax Plus cereal has been my go to for a few months now.  It's organic, you get some good omega-3's in, and quite a bit of fiber.  It's not a flashy cereal with dried fruit or clusters of nuts or frosted what not or marshmallows.  It's just a solid alternative to cornflakes with a lot more nutritional value.  If you're looking for a basic cereal or something to mix with your granola to get a slightly more cereal-y blend, I highly recommend this one.  And if you have something of a sweet cereal-tooth, give it a try with vanilla soymilk.


Pros: Nutrition, Contrasting textures, affordable

Cons: slightly bland

 I have tried other Nature's Path cereals and I liked them better. It is not bad, but definitely lacks a little flavor which they have included in other products. 


Pros: Great Basic for Pantry

Cons: Good enough to buy just if a sale

 I love cereal!  I try them all.  In fact, I have had all of these flavors and love them all - fav's being Flax Plus Multi Bran and also the Raisin Bran.  Lots of nutrients packed in which is always good.  I will continue to buy this and will be looking out for new flavors.


Pros: Healthy, fiber

Cons: ordinary

The cereal is okay. It tastes like regular cereal, but it is much healthier and natural. I liked the flakes very much.


Pros: High in fiber, good and crunchy, organic, not too sweet

Cons: Multibran kind is a tad boring on its own

So thus far I can only speak to the Flax Plus Multibran cereal...but next time I need some cereal, Flax Plus Red Berry Crunch is definitely on the top of my list to try.


As far as the Multibran kind goes, it's a good cereal.  The flakes have a nice texture that's not too "fibery" tasting (but you do get all the nutritional goodness of 7g per serving).  Flavor's a little non-descript.  It's a good, basic cereal with out too many bells and whistles.  I think my favorite way of eating it is with a little flavored yogurt.  It makes it a bit more interesting than just eating it with milk.


All in all, it's a very good, basic cereal.  It's not earth shattering or mind blowing, but it's solid.  And I'd definitely buy it again (but maybe first I'd check out one of the other Flax Plus kinds...just to mix it up).
