Amaranth Porridge

Amaranth Porridge

Start your morning with gluten-free Amaranth Porridge. Amaranth is a plant protein source that is packed with calcium, iron, and triple the fiber of wheat.

There is a new kid in town and his name is Amaranth! So watch out quinoa it looks like you may have some competition in my kitchen!

Well, I guess I should clarify. HE is a grain that I discovered while shopping at Marshalls, and I don’t know why I’ve never been aware of this little seed, but it’s a nutritional powerhouse!

I love going to Marshalls to browse through their food isle. I find different brands of coffee that I don’t always see in our grocery stores as well as a variety of spices and oils.
