buckwheat grits

Buckwheat is protein and Vitamin B rich, effective for treating diarrhea, it cleans and strengthens the intestines, reduces cholesterol and blood pressure, strengthens the capillaries and blood vessels, plus is great in treating poor circulation. Rutin, a bioflavonoid found in buckwheat is the healing culprit. Rutin is also an antidote against x-rays and other forms of radiation.

NOTE: Buckwheat is not actually a cereal grain but a fruit seed related to rhubarb and sorrel.

You can make a large pot and re-heat over the course of a few days — much healthier than a bagel every day.

I recommend the Pocono brand which is wheat & gluten FREE plus 100% organic.

Serves 2 budding bicyclists

Follow instructions on the back of the box:

2 1/2 cups water or organic milk
1/2 cream of buckwheat
1/2 tsp sea salt

COOK it UP!
1. Add salt and bring water to boil
2. Add cream of buckwheat
3. Bring heat to a low simmer
4. After 5-7 minutes, add raisins
5. Turn off heat after ten minutes and let sit for a bit

Add desired amount to bowl and free free to add cinnamon, bananas, fresh coconut, black pepper, butter, honey, or agave (only a little). Buckwheat has a naturally sweet and nutty flavor so you don’t need much. I left the sticker on the banana so you can see it’s organic!

Have a super lovely pleasant fun weekend :)

    I would stay away from Pocono brand. They cut the grains VERY fine which reduces the amount of fiber. Some versions have less than 1 gram of fiber per serving. I used Bob’s Red Mill Organic Creamy Buckwheat which has 3 grams of fiber per serving. The more fiber the better.
