2. Kasha (Buckwheat)
Our Buckwheat Pancakes with Berry Sauce are an excellent alternative to traditional pancake recipes that come straight from a box. Kasha, more commonly known as buckwheat, is an ancient grain in fruit seed form that has been proven to provide better blood sugar control, a lowered risk of diabetes, and a healthier cardiovascular system. Instead of topping your buckwheat pancakes with sugary syrup, consider trying our yummy berry sauce.
Farro is one of the oldest cultivated grains in the world and provides a great source of complex carbohydrates and protein. Though not gluten free, farro is typically easier to digest than regular wheat. For recipes to try out that incorporate farro, try our Farro Salad with Apples and Walnuts, pictured at the top, and our Kale Caesar Salad. Both are flavorful and offer a wealth of health benefits.
