Health Tip of the Month

 

Enjoy buckwheat as a source of whole grains

Buckwheat contains all 9 essential amino acids, equivalent to the amount found in meat and provides all the health benefits of a whole grain but without saturated fat or cholesterol. One cooked cup of buckwheat grouts provides 155 calories, 6 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber, and 1 gram of fat. Buckwheat is rich in antioxidants, high in fiber with a low glycemic index, rich in B vitamins, and a good source of potassium, magnesium, copper, and iron. The grain can easily be incorporated into meals for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
