Millet is a perfect solution for those looking for some diversity in their diet. It’s a great source of protein, phosphorus, magnesium and B group vitamins. It is light and easy to digest, gluten free, which makes it suitable for people on a gluten free diet. It contains silica- a rarely occurring in other food products ingredient which has a healing effect on the joints and beneficial effects on the nails, skin and hair. Millet is alkaline, therefore its consumption helps maintain the acid/alkali balance. It can be eaten cooked, as an alternative to other groats or potatoes, as a salad addition. May be served for breakfast with fruit and nuts instead of regular muesli, or even ground dry as a replacement for flour and used for baking. Don’t forget to check out the recipes with millet!
