Benefits of Buckwheat

Here are a few reasons you should be boiling some of this goodness, like right this minute! Buckwheat is high protein, making it a great substitute for meat. Some researches found that buckwheat may help manage diabetes. I am always researching foods that help with digestion, and I was happy to learn that buckwheat cleans and strengthens the intestines. And for all you gluten-free eaters! I’m happy to announce buckwheat is gluten-free! To top it all off, add some veggies (and you got a fulfilling meal in one bowl). The avocado will provide a source of healthy fats and zucchini is good for maintaining eye health.  Enjoy this quick recipe of buckwheat avocado and zucchini.
