Nothing says hearty breakfast like buckwheat pancakes packed with satisfying protein, fiber and nutrients. Buckwheat is actually a fruit seed, not a cereal grain (who knew?). Besides having a delicious, earthy, wholesome taste, it contains nutrients that can help regulate blood sugar and reduce the risk of diabetes, and can also promote cardiovascular health, actually strengthening capillary walls.

I was on a road trip, driving through Michigan, and having a really hard time finding quick road food that was not covered in cheese, or deep-fried, or both. I stopped at a little diner and the sign at the front advertised “Rise and Shine Bran Muffins” packed with pineapple chunks, apples and raisins, and it was like someone turned on the sun in the middle of the night. Night and day, muffin, you are the one . . . .
Now that it’s getting even darker and colder outside, I’ve been thinking about this muffin. And a tropical beach. But I digress…. I thought, ‘I can make that muffin! I’ll focus on the tropical flavors, and add a little texture with Hodgson Mill Multi Grain Cereal with Flaxseed and Soy.’ Read More »
