Hiya, Just had to comment about soy. I'm a breast cancer survivor. Soy does not cause breast cancer. If you have a form of cancer that is hormone receptive (feeds off estrogen or other hormones), soy (and some other foods) can mimick those hormones and "feed" a tumor. Strangely, people that drank or ate a lot of soy as children have lower rates of breast cancer. My cancer was not hormone receptive and I continue enjoying soy products.

I thought I'd see quinoa on this list ~ it is actually classified as a super food! And, it's delicious.
Buck wheat may be used for gluton free , but I'm very allergic to it. I actually can't breath even with smelling it. I'm unde the understanding that soya has be reprted to cause breast cancer with women? I really enjoy all this information that I'm receiving, but I find I can't keep up with all the information. Does anyone else find this also?
Gluten free??? Can buckwheat be used as is in place of all gluten 'flour' and misc products? How does it compare calorie wise to using almond or soy flour (for those who can use soy just fine like me:))
I don't feel ill when comsuming whole grains/wheat products but I would like to have some other choices...What are some good sprouted grains that are gluten free?
Sorry for all the question!!LOL Hope some of you can help me LOL Thanks, Blessings, Sherri
What about nettles and dandelion greens?!?! This is list is sadly lacking some of the biggies as already mentioned (buckwheat, pomegranate). Not all of us scarf up only what is presented to us by Big Food....
HOOORAY for buckwheat! Gluten free,very nutritious,tasty,cheap and easy to find. Has fewer cals than ricr-or corn flour. VARGA )O(

I totally agree with you....i think its best to remove the glutens from the diet. My NEW favorite non-gluten is buckwheat!!

Please be aware that up to 40% of people unknowingly have glutenous grain sensitivities. For years, I kept eating "whole" grains thinking I was being healthy, and I didn't know they were the reason I felt so ill (neither did my doctors). Wheat, rye, barley, spelt, triticale, etc., and contaminated commercial oats are not a superfood for me. Just had to throw that out there :). Google: gluten sensitivities and/or celiac disease for more information.
