So recently grain has been getting a bad rap. According to Ayurveda, grain is an important part of our diet so I am not in a hurry to toss it.
Here is a simple and super-nutritious breakfast!
For 1 serving:
- 1/2 a cup of puffed millet cereal
- 1 teaspoon of black sesame seeds
- 1 teaspoon of coconut shavings
- Raw honey to taste
- Milk of your choice
Millet contains many nutrients and is easy to digest as well as being a non-allergenic grain. It contains serotonin to help as a mood-stabilizer, magnesium, Niacin to help lower cholesterol and millet also aids digestion.
Millet contains a considerable amount of fiber and has a relatively low glycemic index which contributes to keeping blood sugar levels than wheat or rice. (Kamari and Sumathi, 2002)
Millet is 15 % protein!
