In the spring of 2005 my mom was diagnosed with cancer. When our family moved home to care for her, I was put in charge of the meals. This motivated me to research natural foods and their healing properties, to design a healthier way of eating for our family.
Although I originally designed the oatmeal for mom, and my families' own use, the excitement that built through word of mouth encouraged me to take it further. I spent the next four years analyzing each ingredient for its nutritional value, texture and taste. The berries were added at the end when I found I was still using a sweetener.
CHOO-IT has been described as a cereal/trail-mix hybrid. It is delicious hot or cold, on yogurt, or right out of the bag.
