Gluten free, fibre packed and a complete protein, this 'pseudocereal' is actually a seed. One cup of uncooked amaranth has 31% of your daily need for calcium, 14% for vitamin C, and a whopping 82% for iron.
It's great for everyone but especially good for people with PCOD/insulin resistance/high cholesterol levels.
I like mine toasted in muesli. Have you had this super food? Tell me: firstname.lastname@example.org
In Mexico, amaranth is often popped like popcorn and mixed with honey, molasses or chocolate to make a popular treat in “alegría” (meaning “joy”). How fitting.
