Are the "flakes" cracked/rolled grains similar to quick cooking oats? Depending on how they've been processed, soaking flakes may be pointless. Phytase is fragile and diminishes rapidly with processing. I would throw in some whole buckwheat groats. (more)

Arbitrary classifying things as "paleo" or "not paleo" does not do anyone any good. I think that rather than do so, it might be more prudent to classify different foods as "beneficial," "without impact," or "harmful." Particular classifications... (more)

I want to make some fermented buckwheat pancakes, but the recipes I find (e.g. in Nourishing Traditions) include wheat flour. Has anyone made fermented buckwheat pancakes successfully? And if so, could you give me some tips, please!

I am hoping I do not offend you by linking to a paleo expert's site but I have made this recipe from Stephan Guyenet and it's very good. (more)

It is suggested that d-chiro inositol is beneficial for PCOS, and may help increase insulin sensivity (see links below). D-chiro is expensive (best price I found was $2/day for 1200mg/day, which is an effective dose from one of the linked studies... (more)

I started by buying cheap NOW brand inositol powder, and then taking a separate D supplement. The recommendations I saw for an effective dose of inositol were for multiple teaspoons per day, so I didn't want to spend a ton of money on it. I... (more)

I was reading an article on Mark's Daily Apple yesterday about oats. Everything was sounding very familiar and near the end I saw a reference to PaleoHacks. I clicked the link and BAM! It was my oatmeal post here!! He used my recipe to make baked... (more)

Alot of responses, and I didnt see one mention Avenin. Avenin is the Gluten of Oats. Avenin is the Prolamine found in wheat, and while not nearly as offensive to the human system as Gluten... it does the same thing on a smaller scale. Its a... (more)

Oats can be fantastic (for those that do not have intolerance). For those who are not sensitive, all the arguments against oats can be countered. *High in phytic acid*. - can be neutralized by soaking in an acidic medium with buckwheat flour... (more)

I definitely get a bigger blood sugar spike after eating plain steel cut oats than sweet potatoes. Still not as bad as anything wheat-based. Almonds do very little to raise my blood sugar. That's probably the biggest reason people tout them as... (more)

I am trying to add a simple, shelf-stable carb to my diet as I am very active and trying to keep at the 150g-200g threshold (it's where I feel best). I already eat a good amount of sweet potatoes and am planning on adding organic raw buckwheat... (more)

I thought you only had to soak buckwheat for 15 minutes because it soaks up water so quickly. Then you can sprout it afterwards. Here's where I got that info if you're curious. http://www.therawchef.com/how-to-sprout-buckwheat/ (more)

Hey guys, So I'm thinking about trying buckwheat (thanks to daz's suggestion in my other thread). I am in a college environment, the best I can really do is soak overnight. Will that get rid of most of the phytic acid?

I am sorry I do not know how to reduce phytic acid, but I know how to make buckweat that is the best in the world. Just follow my instructions. 1. Buy roasted buckwheat. 2. Measure two cups of buckwheat. Pour in a big bowl, add tons... (more)

Hi, So I have been avoiding grains except for the occasional white rice which doesn't bother me. I know I feel worlds better being grain-free so am not looking back. I recently discovered these little baninis that a local raw food restaurant... (more)

I ate soaked buckwheat for a long time because it didn't have an affect on me. Then it started giving me stomach cramps (around the same time avocado and pineapple were giving me the same problems), so now it's on my "eat only rarely" list. I do... (more)

After the style of Guyenet, I've been making buckwheat muffins. Not strictly paleo, but I thought this crowd might be the right one to talk about it. My recipe: Soak 3 cups raw (organic) buckwheat groats for 24-36 hours in a large large volume... (more)

I've been eating buckwhat ployes my whole life. Traditionally, we've always made them as crepe/pancakes. Never would think of doing a muffin out of it as there just isn't any gluten for it to proof. (My hometown grows buckwheat and they mill it... (more)
