Good Morning Luv-lies,
Over the last year, I have fallen in love with the wide variety of grains that are out there! Until recently, my grain diet consisted of whole wheat bread, tortillas, and brown rice. Pretty
pathetic limited. I know.
Well, since discovering the exciting and nutritiously colorful world of Farmer’s Markets, my marketing list always has what I have named – ‘Seeds of Joy’ – at the top of the list. What I’ve also learned about these beauties is that, the plant producing these seeds are called ‘grain crops’. And that there are two type of commercial grain crops – cereals (wheat and rye) and legumes (beans and soybeans). *That’s probably TMI!* Anywho….
This is my Ode to the ‘Seeds of Joy’. My Pick? …
I love the texture. It’s a quick fix – fifteen minutes and voile. It can be seasoned to any flavor. It’s high in protein. And it lacks gluten.
