If you aren't all that familiar with millet, millet is a seed that is: high in fiber, high in magnesium, high in zinc, high in potassium, raises serotonin levels, high in protein, high in B vitamins, and has excellent heart protecting properties, helps prevent diabetes, and is great for gut health! I adore millet.
Combine millet with nutritious pinto beans, veggies and spices and you have one heck of a healthy and tasty meal!
I sincerely hope you love it just as much as we do!
