I'm not a big breakfast eater, but Grandy Oats may change my coffee-only ways. The newest addition to their 100% organic granola line is Goji Agave (13 oz., $5). A so-called "superfood," Goji berries are rich in nutrients and health-promoting properties. They have a distinctive, slightly bitter taste, adding an odd-yet-pleasant flavor contrast---as well as a good boost of antioxidants--to the agave-sweetened medley of oats, pumpkin seeds and dried fruit. Though the cereal is plenty sweet, agave is a low-glycemic sweetener, meaning it doesn't stimulate blood glucose and insulin levels. Translation: You won't need to sneak a nap under your desk after this breakfast or midafternoon snack. And, Grandy Oats' new reusable, recyclable yogurt-style container lends itself better to storage and straight-from-the-package snacking than typical cereal bags or boxes.
