Oatmeal Fatigue? A Simple Breakfast Idea To Break Free From The Reigns Of The Common Oatmeal
Oatmeal is inexpensive, quick, and can take on many flavors depending on how it is prepared. Buckwheat is a fruit that meets all of these salient characteristics while offering up additional health benefits. Yes - I will say it again: Buckwheat is a fruit. Because Buckwheat is not a grain, it is great for people who have trouble digesting grains or have gluten sensitivities. Further, this fruit contains many trace minerals including manganese, magnesium and copper. Buckwheat’s flavor can vary depending on whether the buckwheat is RAW or TOASTED. Toasted buckwheat, typically referred to as KASHA, has a deep roasted flavor making it a more savory choice. RAW buckwheat has a much lighter flavor -- more comparable to a common bowl of oatmeal. For this recipe I use the untoasted, RAW version. This product can be found in the BULK section at the grocery store or in a package of Bob’s Red Mill. If your grocery store does not have a BULK section try looking in the ethnic aisle where there are imported products from Israel (or order on Amazon).
