What is teff? Teff is a gluten free grain that is superior to quinoa.

We've all heard of the benefits of quinoa. But is quinoa really so amazing? Sure, it's more nutritious than rice, but so are many other less-known grains and seeds. Amaranth, for example, has twice the nutrient density as quinoa, and it has a better calcium to phosphorus ratio.
Out of all the grains and grain-like seeds, t'eff (or teff) comes out the best nutritionally. It's roughly twice as nutritious as amaranth (four times as good as quinoa) and it has the best calcium to phosphorus ratio I've seen in any grain or grain-like seed. (The better the calcium to phosphorus ratio, the better the food is for your bones and teeth.)
Teff is prepared the same way that rice is prepared and it has a similar consistency to amaranth. The flavor is similar to other grains, but richer in flavor due to its higher nutrient density.
Teff, unfortunately, is not usually sold in stores. On amazon, you'll pay $10 for a single pound. You can, however, order teff in bulk to get a reasonable price. We order a 25 pound bag once per year. When buying 25 pounds at once, you pay a little over $4 per pound.
While I'm not an advocate of grains in general, and especially recommend avoiding all gluten products (regardless of whether or not you are known to have a gluten allergy), if you are going to consume a grain, I recommend teff.
For seasonal raw foodies who eat all raw in the summer and some cooked food in the winter, teff is a great option for adding to nori wraps with greens for a warm delightful wrap.
When reading, the most incredible things I've ever learned came from stories. Stories are more memorable. They create images and time-lines in our minds. They give us all the background information that lead up to a great moment, a great realization, a great break-through.
In reality, we only truly grasp ("grok") something through personal experience. We can not add to our experience through reading dry data. But we really can and do add to our experience with stories. The more detailed, authentic, and dynamic the story, the more there is for us to learn from it. The more it resonates with us and touches us, the more we retain what we've learned.
