In praise of grains
I just found an inspiring tidbit on whole grains in your pantry from Lava magazine online. We had our oats this morning with bananas, donut peaches, pecans, almond milk, and cinnamon. This week we've also been working though a big batch of quinoa with black beans. (Great with tortillas.) I'm a little burned out on the rye berries and wheat berries, but I'm hoping to get them back in the mix very soon. It's reassuring to see the Ironman site celebrating whole grains; sometimes I worry about making sure my marathoner gets all he needs nutritionally, but we're very aware, and this was just a nice reminder that we're eating well.
