A balanced, grab-and-go breakfast option for busy mornings. Only six ingredients needed, gluten-free, high-protein.
Whether you are a student or working professional, we all know what it’s like to have that on-the-go lifestyle.

Millet, another gluten free ancient grain, is also a good source of minerals, like copper, phosphorus, manganese and magnesium.
