I gotta try soaking it.  Because it doesn't seem to sit well with my how I've prepared it in the past.

Sorry you guys don't care for the millet.  

One way to eat it is to mix it with another cooked grain.

Millet has to wash well before cooking, as Victoria explained.
Sometimes the brand can make the difference,
For me, millet is a excellent food for my stomach

I cooked some millet last night and rinsed it thoroughly before cooking, and I ate some of it this morning.  I like the taste better when rinsed.  My stomach didn't rebel either!  Not that it truly rebelled before, but this morning it felt perfectly settled with the millet.

I don't know what brand this is, because I got it from the bulk aisle a WF.

I cook the millet till it's real nice and soft.  And yes, I do rinse it first.  I rinse rice, lentils, beans, quinoa....  It's amazing the amount of dirt and other stuff that rinses off that you otherwise would be eating.  Not that I'm against eating a certain amount of dirt, but still.

I cooked a cup of millet in the rice cooker after rinsing.  After cooking and letting it sit in the cooker undisturbed for 20 minutes, and added 1/2 stick of butter and a 1/4 tsp of sea salt.  It could have used more salt.  The millet I ate this morning was mixed into a scrambled egg.  It went nicely with the egg's flavor.

I always rinsed mine.  That didn't seem to help me I don't think.  I have to try soaking it though.  Plus, I have to see if my son will eat it.  I haven't seen if it's good for him.  And my B daughter!!!!!  And my wife.  I don't think she'll like it as much as quinoa though!

I buy free-range eggs.  I think that helps.  Eggs are already so cheap, this is one food I can afford to "upgrade".  I have missed my eggs sorely.  For a cheapskate like me to be deprived of such a cost-effective source of high-quality protein is a tragedy....

Seeing as my egg sensitivity is no more, I'm taking that as a sign that my gut has healed up.  With that in mind, I decided to try some gluten grains that are SF for Gatherers.  I bought amaranth and pearled barley at WF today.  I wanted hulled barley but they were all out!

I cooked a bowl of amaranth porridge and ate it about 15 minutes ago.  I tried cooking it in the microwave like oat bran, but since it's a whole grain it took much longer to cook.  I think I should have used 4:1 water instead of 3:1, and cooked it longer, but it was still good as it was.

Has anyone "popped" amaranth?  I stumbled across the suggestion while looking for directions to cook it.  I used to love popcorn--but then, who wouldn't: simple carbs soaked in melted butter and coated with salt?  Despite my love of popcorn, I quit eating it long before I discovered BTD, because the hulls would shred my throat eating only a handful.

I am pleasantly surprised at how much grain I can eat now, and still make such progress killing off the yeast (if my tongue is any indicator of how the yeast is faring elsewhere).

Tomorrow, I think I'll try cooking some barley.  Any suggestions?

Do the other grains pop like corn?  I haven't tried.  I thought to "puff" them they had to be under pressure, not just heated.  But maybe to pop them you just heat till they start jumping.   Try it and let us know.

I guess the popping will have to wait.  I made more porridge this morning out of the rest of the amaranth...on the stove, this time, and it turned out better!

Drive, I had good luck making brown basmati rice and amaranth together in the rice cooker and everyone loved it! I forget the water ratio but I think I used 2 to 1 water for the the whole bit.

Hmm, in the rice cooker you say?  Great idea!

I will not have use of my roommate's rice cooker much longer, since we won't be roommates much longer.  I have got to get myself one of those things.  It has been the most useful small kitchen appliance I've used.

Where do you get amaranth?  Supposedly it's beneficial for AB's and I'd like to try it.
