Wheat is not the only grain available to us.  Even if you can no longer eat wheat, grains are still an important part of a healthy diet.  Alternative grains are an important source of fiber as well as other valuable nutrients.

Let’s list a few:

  • Rice (Check out the many different varieties)
  • Quinoa
  • Amaranth
  • Millet
  • Teff
  • Buckwheat (Don’t worry about the name, it is from the rhubarb family, not wheat)
  • Sorghum

Can you help add to the List?
