Buckwheat Porridge

I have been enjoying this quick and easy porridge now the weather is getting cooler.

Buckwheat is a wonderful grain - actually more similar to a fruit seed - and has been used throughout the world. It is super high in flavonoids especially rutin which can help to lower cholesterol and blood pressure. The nutrients in buckwheat help blood sugar control and the high fiber content can prevent gallstones. Buckwheat is high in magnesium which improves blood flow and nutrient delivery.

Buckwheat can also make you feel less hungry and more satisfied so great for weight control.

Here is the simple recipe that also gives great energy

Buckwheat Porridge

1 cup buckwheat 
2 cups of spring water
Ground flax seeds - optional
