Think magnesium, think millet.

It’s not everyday I cook millet, in fact I always thought it rather bland. My mind was changed when I made Oliver McCabe’s delicious FoodFuel Veggie Bake where millet makes up one layer with vegetables, lentils and a sweet potato topping – yummy! 

The millet, which is cooked in vegetable stock first, really does have the comfort food value that mashed potatoes have for me so I think I’ll be using millet much more than I have been.
Millet is full of nutrients your body needs, such as:
  • Magnesium
  • Calcium
  • Maganese
  • Tryptophan
  • Phoshorus
  • Fibre
  • B vitamins
  • Antioxidants
All in all this little grain is a nutritional powerhouse. Its magnesium content alone can help us maintain healthy teeth and bones, respond better to mental and physical stressors and keep blood pressure and bowel health normal.
Why not give it a try if you haven’t done so yet?
