‘Risotto from Buckwheat! that’s not Risotto’, I hear you say. Well it’s not Risotto in the traditional sense, but a great twist to a classic meal that tastes delicious. Plus when we eat it we get the added bonus of replacing insulin spiking carbs i.e. aborio rice, with a wholesome gluten free option. While at the same time we keep our body well fuelled and nourished with out feeling the energy zapping symptoms of insulin levels crashing e.g hunger, lethargy, feeling cranky, headaches etc. So if we have trouble with diabetes or stabilising blood sugar levels, then buckwheat is a wonderful grain to add in to our diet.
Buckwheat contains the eight essential amino acids, several minerals including; zinc, iron, manganese, potassium, phosphorous, copper and magnesium, and is high in B vitamins that are essential to energy production, managing our stress and the optimum functioning of our digestive system. Enjoy!
