In an effort to eat healthier, I have tried different variations of quinoa or an ancient grains mix etc. I have tried it by itself, with seasonings, stuffed into something and mixed in with regular rice. And each time, I always felt like I was eating my birds' food. Only way I can digest it is to put it into a hearty bread when I bake. That is okay.

Have you tried it? How do you like it or not?

ETA: Now that I think about it, I wonder if my lifelong habit of having birds as pets "ruined" me as I associate those grains strongly with my birds.

I love quinoa and Near East has some brands that are flavored. High in sodium, but tasty.

I love quinoa, and teff (Eragrostis tef) is OK as a hot cereal, but not for much else in my view. Am not too familiar with many of the others.

I eat organic puffed spelt. Have it for breakfast and occasionally for dinner. I get it from a local nature/health food store. The Amish process and market it - it's relatively inexpensive (1.89 for 4 oz) which translates into about 5-6 bowls for me.

Spelt - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It's delicious with Almond Milk, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, sprinkled over it and doused with berries (diced strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries etc..) and let it absorb the almond milk so its nice and soggy. Spelt has significantly higher protein content than wheat and is very nutritious and tasty. Best thing is, I bet your children will like it!

I am somewhere between yes, in any way, and only in a certain way. It also depends on which grain it is. I've had them prepared in ways I didn't like and in a variety of ways I did like them. Some grains I like better than others.

My father eats spelt bread. I hate it, though, as I find it breaks apart too easily.
