Have you jumped on the Millet band wagon yet? Move over quinoa there is a new grain making the rounds! Though, it is not new, millet is gaining popularity again. It must be due to the protein and fiber content, as it contain almost 10% of your fiber needs and 6 grams of protein per cup of cooked millet.

You may have previously seen millet in your bird seed, but it is not only for birds. Add this grain to your diet as a good source of minerals such as copper, phosphorus, manganese, as well as magnesium which is particularly important for our heart health, bone health and even blood sugar management.

A favorite recipe of ours features millet in a Moroccan Millet & Roasted Carrot Pilaf.
