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?

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)

If you are going to eat it, then yes you should soak it.

Sorry you are all wrong. Buckwheat is technically a grass!!! Not a fruit and not a grain like rice. It is free of gluten. It is in fact much more nutrient dense than the "experts" on this post reported.

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!

Buckwheat flour can sometimes taste funny when used in baking on it's own. Does this recipe work when mixed with other flours, like coconut flour, brown rice flour, corn flour, sorghum flour, teff flour, chestnut flour?? Can they ferment... (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 am also curious on whether it is better to eat the buckwheat farinetta or to take the supplement, given all the reasoning you listed above. PaleoGal, what did you end up deciding? How has it turned out? Blossom1, what brand supplement did you... (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)

Just made the Chris Kresser variant this weekend. I'm definitely a fan.
