Have you joined in on the rage lately about grains? Suddenly I hear more and more about Ancient Grains such as Quinoa, Millet, Chia, Oats, Flax, and Amaranth, but do you know how to use them?

My struggle has been trying to find foods that I can use these with. The biggest issue is that I just did not know a lot of the purpose behind them. As I learn more and more about these grains, I am more anxious to add them into a lot of our foods. The majority of the grains can be easily added to recipes that you already make. Several of those grains, you may not even taste them in the foods but the nutrition from them is there.

That is a win-win for me as I am trying to cook for very picky eaters.

These grains date back more than 8,000 years! They were one of the original foods that was a primary source of nutrition at that time. Somehow over the years, our food industry has been lost in over processing chemically based foods instead of using natural grains and foods.

These grains have a multitude of health benefits including lowering risk of many chronic diseases like heart disease and diabetes.

This past week I took part in a briefing on ancient grains with Udi’s Gluten Free, and I was introduced to their Steel Cut Oats with Currants, Flax & Chia. I have no idea where this product has been all my life because this dish knocked my typical baked oatmeal out of the park!

One thing in particular that I absolutely love about these Baked Oats is that my picky eaters LOVE these and inside I know they are getting a bowl full of good nutrients.

The key to using these grains is finding the right recipes to add them to so that they are flavorful and delicious. This dish has the perfect mix of sweetness without the extra calories, plus the currants give the oats a burst of flavor on their own.
