Amaranth

Have you heard of it?  I hadn't until I read about it in Sprout Right (you know the baby food book I refer to over and over again).

It's very similar to quinoa and it's probably the healthiest thing you could eat.  Filled with protein, iron, zinc, copper, and nearly all nutrients.  It's highest in folic acid, calcium, and vitamin E.  Actually, it has three times as much calcium as milk.  Jane loves it and so do I! I've been giving it to her for breakfast with some fruit and cinnamon.  I would love to hear if you have your own recipes for it.
