What Dr. Doni’s Eating? Amaranth

I went to a Mexican cooking class with my mom the other night, and was so interested to learn about how amaranth (a gluten-free grain) was considered to be the grain of eternity. Traditional Mexican recipes use amaranth to make cookies and cakes.

I found some great amaranth (GF, DF and Egg Free) recipes at NU World Foods. I look forward to trying them out.

At the cooking class, we had:

  • Wild shrimp, boiled and served with avocado, fresh lime juice, and salsa
  • Wild Flounder fillets individually baked with green olives, lime zest and parsley
  • Potatoes, boiled, mashed and baked, with butter
