Buckwheat Approval

Happy First Day of Fall!!!!

 

Yesterday, I was at work during the majority of the day so here is what I wore:

After work, Brian and I went downstairs to visit Caitlin and Julie, two of our good friends from Butler who just moved into our building!  We had a little wine, cookies (recipe to come later) and Modern Family.  It was relaxing and great to see good friends after a long day at work.

Breakfast

This morning I decided I would try out the Bob’s Red Mill Creamy Buckwheat Cereal.  I have made buckwheat pancakes before and absolutely loved them, but I didn’t know what to expect from the cereal.

Seriously, this stuff is great! I mixed together:

  • 1/4 cup buckwheat cereal
  • 3/4 cup water

I then microwaved it for 3 minutes and added:

Here are some interesting facts and benefits of buckwheat:
  • Buckwheat is a fruit not a grain and is completely wheat free
  • Buckwheat is a great plant source of protein (5g per 1/4 cup serving!)
  • Rich in lysine, an amino acid that is lacking in many grains
  • Eating buckwheat may keep you fuller longer, because it will keep glucose levels balanced better than other carbohydrates
Hope you all have a great first day of fall and kickoff to the weekend.
This weekend is Chelsea’s wedding weekend!  Gotta go pack!! 🙂
