Buckwheat And Eggs

Buckwheat and eggs

Breakfast doesn’t get much easier (or more nutritious!) than this. This tasty recipe for buckwheat and eggs is incredibly simple and easy to prepare, but packs a powerful nutritional punch. You can have it finished within 15 minutes, and it will give you a sustained energy boost that will last throughout the morning and beyond.

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!

    I found this recipe better with 2 times the amount of spring onions/aka scallions/ aka green onions and a 1/4 cups of finely chopped cilantro, but maybe I just like a lot of flavor.

    I see sunflower seeds and yogart in some of your recipes but ive been told they feed candida. Whats up?

      Who said they feed Candida? For example – plain, probiotic yogurt is full of good bacteria that will help to rebalance your gut flora.

    Using this recipe as a great source of inspiration…I kinda deconstructed it! Lol! First, I sautéed my spring onions in the oil, then added the buckwheat and tossed it around till it was nice and toasty/crispy. Added some leftover roasted cauliflower and zucchini, tossed it in a bowl and fried the eggs over easy to top my “buckwheat veggie hash”. Sprinkled the cilantro over top, and dug in. What a dream.
