Recipe: Curried Millet

Whole grains, like millet, are an excellent source of nutrition and fiber. Because the body absorbs them more slowly than the processed variety (breads, crackers, pastas, etc), they provide a sustained source of energy and do not cause the blood-sugar fluctuations that can lead to mood swings, a lack of energy, and insulin-related disorders (including diabetes). Millet, in particular, is a heart-healthy choice because of the magnesium it contains, a mineral which has been shown to lower high blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart attack, especially in people with atherosclerosis or diabetic heart disease. Magnesium is a mineral that has also been shown in studies to reduce the severity of asthma and the frequency of migraine attacks.
