Buckwheat is a really useful ingredient for anyone’s low sugar eating plan. Unlike grains such as wheat and rye, buckwheat is an approved food for the Candida diet. It’s filling and satisfying, yet it contains very few carbohydrates and is gluten-free. In fact, buckwheat groats are actually not even classified as a grain. They are really fruit seeds that are distantly related to rhubarb, and they are usually referred to as a pseudo-grain.
Buckwheat is highly nutritious too. It contains a wide range of micronutrients like manganese, copper, magnesium and phosphorus. It is also high in fiber. This simple breakfast recipe is very satisfying, great for your health and digestion, and it takes just a few minutes to prepare!
