Get Some ‘Old’ Stuff on Your Plate

Thanks to my reporting on this story, I was inspired to cook millet with mushrooms and cauliflower for dinner last night. Last week it was quinoa with black beans. What will I be eating next?

  1. Please keep me updated about your experience with amaranth. I’m working on some stuff about exactly what you mentioned in your latest post for National Geographic – how amaranth benefits farmers, consumers (and much more). I will be happy to share it with you once finished. Here is an infographic we did about amaranth http://amaranth-bio.com/amaranth-infographic/ and why i eat amaranth every morning for breakfast http://amaranth-bio.com/blog/2014/4/21/youre-an-athlete-eat-amaranth-for-breakfast
