Tired of Oats? – What About Raw Buckwheat?

Saturday, January 26th, 2008


Guess what!
I’m tired Of Eating Oats. 

Yep, I’ve gotten tired of eating the plain oat breakfast I wrote about in one of my August’07 posts. (CLICK HERE to refer to it) 

Actually, I DO really still love it, it’s just that you want a CHANGE every now and then. You know what I mean?

We’ve been doing some exciting things with buckwheat lately. (NOT the buckwheat flour, but WHOLE RAW BUCKWHEAT), so this gave me a bit of an idea.

Why not use the same procedure used in that whole Oat Recipe but instead ….. make a ….

MIX of 50% whole oat groats + 50% whole raw buckwheat?  

YES!! That sounds great. I’ve never made that mix before. So I got excited, immediately raced to the kitchen, and got the ingredients together to start the process. …….. And you know what?


Nutrition, Wholefoods and the Gluten Free Life

As you learn the nature and characteristics of whole food ingredients, a greater freedom of creativity and confidence in the kitchen develops. This is a totally different experience than when relying on prepackaged mixes and boxed refined foods.

As we progress along through these blog articles I will continue to emphasize this point and also take the opportunity to highlight points of interest from the rich and diverse backgrounds of our foods. In this way, you will gain a greater appreciation for the wonderful gluten free foods we have available to us. (more…)
