Organic B.R.A.T. Feel Better Drinks
I just became aware of a gluten free product that is perfect for hot summer days or for those following the Doctor-recommended B.R.A.T. Diet (an acronym for bananas, rice, applesauce and toast). Organic B.R.A.T. feel better drinks are made with ingredients that settle an upset stomach and help to calm vomiting & diarrhea while also naturally restoring electrolytes and nutrients. Additionally, Organic B.R.A.T. Feel Better Drink is a refreshing milk alternative for those who suffer from lactose intolerance, gluten intolerance and other food allergies.
Organic B.R.A.T. Feel Better Drinks are perfect for children and adults suffering from a variety of ailments such as:
- The flu virus
- Digestive disorders
- Morning sickness
- Side effects from Chemotherapy
- Symptoms of dehydration
Founders, Greg and Ilsa Toepfer, were inspired to create Organic B.R.A.T. after their children came down with the stomach flu. They wanted a non-dairy but "milk-like" beverage that their children would actually drink and enjoy. They incorporated the tummy-settling principles of the B.R.A.T. Diet by using organic brown rice as the base along with banana and apple purees, and then added an electrolyte-balanced ratio of vitamins and minerals. Organic B.R.A.T. is free of pesticides, common allergens and any added sugar or preservatives. Organic B.R.A.T. is vitamin and calcium fortified and contains only 100 calories per serving.
If you are not on the B.R.A.T diet and want to use this product as a base for a an electrolyte rich protein shake, click here for my article with some tasty protein shake recipes. In the Chicagoland area you can find Organic B.R.A.T at Jewel-Osco, Cub Foods, and Dominick's. You can also order from their website.
