Qinoa, Amaranth, Buckwheat and Wildrice not grains.


I'm not sure what your personal experience has been with these, but Qinoa, Amaranth, Buckwheat and wildrice are not actually grains and may be good alternative to people seeking a grain free diet. Buckwheat pancakes and breads are great and as a bounus my natropath mentioned they can't grow buckwheat with pestacides etc because it doesnt respond well. Qinoa works well as a porrige while I have puffed amaranth with on its own as a cereal.

"quinoa is an amino acid-rich (protein) seed... Most commonly considered a grain, quinoa is actually a relative of leafy green vegetables like spinach and Swiss chard"

"Amaranth, also called Chinese Spinach, are bushy, green-colored plants some of which have leaves that can be eaten and taste similar to spinach, and some of which produce seeds that can be used as a grain"

"The scientific truth is buckwheat is not a wheat but a fruit... Each Buckwheat particle is a triangular seed"

"wild rice is not rice at all but a grass... Wild rice is really an annual aquatic seed Zizania aquatica "
