In my recent post, I wrote about the major two reasons why as a country and people, India should shift to millets from rice and wheat.
That post received a very good response as a guest post, and several people wanted to change to millets from rice and wheat, but they were not sure what and how.
The good news is that I found a very nice article that gives a gentle introduction to millets which you can use as a starting point to introduce millets into your diet.
The article covers the types of millets that are generally available in India, their content and benefits, and guess what, a few millets-based recipes too! I would strongly suggest that you go through this post for your own introduction to the millets.
Disclaimer: As with everything that we consume, we need to be careful about the balance and the suitability, because what we eat, we become, and there are medicinal side-effects and consequences too because of what we eat. As the article points out, people with thyroid issues should be careful about replacing rice and wheat completely with millets. The reader is advised to consult their dietitian, doctor and the nutritionist before changing their food consumption habits.
By the way, I found a good book on healthy millet recipes, you might want to check that out too, for your reference – ”
Happy reading and wishing you a very healthy and joyful life!
