Recipes for Health - Royal Quinoa Salad With Tofu and Sesame Ginger Vinaigrette - NYTim... - 0 views

    Royal quinoa is a reddish, high-protein variety of quinoa grown in parts of Bolivia. It's particularly nutty tasting, especially if you toast it in the pan before cooking. I serve this salad as a main dish.

The Heart Scan Blog: Can millet make you diabetic? - 0 views

    If wheat is so bad, what about all the other grains?

    First of all, I demonize wheat because of its top-of-the-list role in triggering:

    --Appetite--Wheat increases hunger dramatically
    --Insulin
    --Blood sugar--Wheat is worse than table sugar in triggering a rapid, large rise in blood sugar
    --Triglycerides
    --Small LDL particles--the number one cause for heart disease in the U.S.
    --Reduced HDL
    --Diabetes
    --Autoimmune diseases--Most notably celiac disease and thyroiditis.

    Most other "healthy, whole grains" aren't quite as bad. It's a matter of degree.
