About Millet: It’s More Than Bird Seed!
Note: This post may contain affiliate links. Thanks for supporting COOKtheSTORY!
Today I have an exciting giveaway from Bob’s Red Mill. It’s for a big box full of new grains to try. Scroll on down to enter. I collaborated with Bob’s Red Mill to bring you this post.
Update: The giveaway has ended.
Next, I dove into the box and came up with millet. And I fell in love again! Millet may be the main ingredient in some bird seeds, but when cooked up, it’s nothing like the hard cracked stuff you’re picturing.
Instead, millet is fluffy, delicate, soft. When I cooked it into a porridge, it reminded me of corn grits. But it’s way healthier.
Millet is high in fiber and is an alkaline, making it easy to digest and helpful in balancing the body’s acidity. It’s also gluten-free so if you have this dietary restriction or if you’re trying to reduce gluten, millet is a great grain to consider.
Do you want to learn more about millet and use it in some recipes?

Disclosure: Bob’s Red Mill provided me with a box of different grains for myself to try and the box of grains for the giveaway. I have not been compensated in any other way. All opinions are my own.
