    Hello, I am trying to eliminate grains, and I wonder if Buckwheat is a good option for me to eat. Thanks

      Sorry for the delayed answer. Yes, buckwheat is amazing. It has an almost perfect balance of amino acids and… since it is not a grass family plant… absolutely zero gluten. All grass family plants have gluten or gluten-like compounds (yes, that includes corn, rice, oats…) Do be mindful that all seeds are high starch. This means that you should look at them more as a source of carbohydrates than a source of protein.
