It Sounds Like Mullet But Tastes So Good!

In an effort to not eat the same thing over and over again, I have been making some new foods to keep my mind off of the lack of chocolate and other refined sugars.  One food that I am really enjoying that I never thought I would is millet.  Millet is an ancient grain, gluten free, and overall good for you!  Here are some of the benefits I found by searching these sites:
  • easy to digest
  • gluten free
  • high in magnesium, calcium, fiber, B vitamins, and antioxidents
  • an alkaline food
  • feeds the 'good stomach bacteria'
  • great source of protein
I enjoyed some millet today topped with almond butter.  It tastes kinda like a mix between polenta and corn bread...which are essentially the same thing, but better.  I can't wait to make a salad with it and enjoy it for breakfast later this week.  I highly recommend it.  I purchased the Eden Organic brand from Whole Foods for $3 and the bag should last me at least a month.

Coming Up on One Healthy Apple:
Look at me planning for more than one post at a time!
  • Food from our vacation
  • Photography from Down Under (a guest post from hubby)
  • Recap of New Zealand
  • Week 2 progress report on our cleanse
  • A workout post
Since I now write for more than my mom and husband, I wanted to ask you guys for your preference and to see why you come back. 
Is there anything else you would like to see on my blog?  Recipies? Workout/fitness posts? Ramblings?

I've been seeing millet everywhere lately, but haven't tried it. Millet bread is freaking AMAZING though!!

You went to New Zealand? So jealous! I really want to go there. I haven't tried millet- but I love that its protein packed. I'm going to look for it at the store this weekend

Thanks for the sweet comment on my site! Nice to meet another NorCal girl! Where abouts are you in NorCal?

I absolutely love millet. I use it in stir fry, recipe from Heidi (101cookbooks) and I also stir 1/2 cup into my whole wheat bread when I'm making it from scratch. It gives it this crunch that can't be beat!
