LOCAL LOVE: MIX IT


When you ask me what's my favorite time of the day, I won't think a sec and I'll bet everything for breakfast time. 

Finding a personalized cereal option was my number one priority this year, especially by having a little one that is allergic to nuts and when most of the cereal brands in the market are full of sugar. 

Mixit was a great solution for our yummy breakfast routine and knowing you can create your own mix of cereal with just a click makes everything priceless right?


I love discovering new local brands with a healthy concept like Mixit. They offer a wide option of cereals, nuts, dried fruits and seeds so you can easily combine and make your very own. 
My HeyMaca mix has a crunchy honey granola base, dried mango, almonds, goji berries and dried blueberries. The best part is that one serving of this cereal only has 11gr of sugar and 4gr of fiber! Yummy, no? 

Scroll all the way down to find this amazebowl recipe, know how they started this lovely idea and a chance to win 3 gift certificates to try Mixit.


- Tell us a bit about this lovely idea, Mixit 

We got this idea in Europe , where we were living and customized cereal is very popular there. When we decided to come back to Canada, we realized , there is no healthy alternative cereal. The majority of cereals in the store have added sugar and we could not find anything we would like. That’s how MIXIT Canada was born. We are giving the freedom to choose what ingredients customer like and most of them are without added sugar. We started in June 2015 in Montreal. We ship anywhere in Canada for a very low fee or for free.


- What made you decide to open your business and why a healthy one? 

Simply because we wanted our son to eat better and we found out that more people have a similar problem. To find healthier cereal base breakfast, which would be done customized to each person taste  

- Any tips for future entrepreneurs in the city?
Every business looks much easier on the paper. Expect 100% more issues than you were expecting , don’t give up when you get few bumps on the road.

  16. Those coconut bowls are so beautiful. I love this idea about mixing personal cereal. I pretty much stopped eating cereal for breakfast based on the actual nutritional value of it, but now I love it as an afternoon snack with greek yogurt or almond milk. Will have to check this out! I'm not sure how to tag people in this comment but will for sure be sending it to my sister and mom.
