Whats the deal with Buckwheat and Quinoa?

Buckwheat is a versatile gluten free product that actually comes from a seed not a grain. Buckwheat has 80% more protein than eggs and 90% more than milk.  It is high in amino acids and antioxidants.

Quinoa most commonly considered a grain, is also a seed and is a relative of leafy green vegetables like spinach and Swiss chard. It has a low glycemic index, gluten free, high in protein and a good source of fiber.

Where to buy Buckwheat and Quinoa

You can buy Buckwheat groats and flour from any good Health Food Shop. The same for Quinoa seeds. The flour can be a little harder to find. The major supermarkets now have Buckwheat and Quinoa products in the Health Food Aisle.
