Hey Kings and Queens!
How are you?
I seriously pray that all is well! :)
Omg.. I love you guys!
Smile! It looks great on you!
Now did you miss #JsFitTip of the week on my JustATouchofJ Mobile App, Instagrams, Facebooks, Tumblr, Twitter, TikTok, Snapchat, Reddit, LinkedIn, and Blackvibes.com just to name a few? ;)
Today's #JsFitTip is all about the ancient "African Gluten Free Grain Fonio!"
What is Fonio? I'm glad you asked! :)
Well for one, it's considered the continent's oldest cultivated cereal.
Native to West Africa, it's a staple most commonly enjoyed in the mountainous areas of countries like Burkina Faso, Guinea, Senegal, Mali, and Nigeria!
Other names for fonio are acha, iburura, and hungry rice.
Did you know that Fonio is a is a nutritional powerhouse
In addition to being naturally low in cholesterol, sodium, and fat..
1/4 cup (45 grams) of dry Fonio is approximately 1/2 cup cooked!
It only: 170 calories
Fonio is a good source of B vitamins, including thiamine, riboflavin, and niacin, which are necessary for the growth, development, and function of cells, as well as energy production. Fonio also provides iron, copper, zinc, and magnesium.
Its said to have the highest calcium content of all grains. This may make it a good choice for those who don't consume dairy, such as vegans, people with Histamine Intolerance, individuals with lactose intolerance, and IBS.
Fonio is also high in amino acids so, it's a good addition to the diets of people who don't eat enough animal or protein-based foods.
Although its protein composition is comparable to that of white rice, fonio contains significantly higher amounts of the sulfur-containing amino acids methionine and cysteine. Both of these amino acids are lacking in grains like corn, wheat, rice, sorghum, and barley.
I absolutely love using this in so many of my recipes. You have to give it a try! You can even use the flour for baking sweet treats and homemade pancakes. Speaking of pancakes..
