quinoa

How will oil depletion affect the way we live? What will the economic impact be? How will agriculture change? Will we thrive or merely survive?

quinoa

Post by emordnilap »

If you like quinoa, eat British-grown organic quinoa.

They also have organic marrowfat peas - which is the first time I've come across them grown commercially.

I've just ordered several dried organic products from them. I have no other connection to them.

Alternatively, just eat the closely-related Fat Hen, which grows wild all over the place.

Fat Dodgy?

No. It has saponins, but whether they are the same as quinoa I do not know.

Really? Is that the British-grown you're talking about or just generally? We don't usually soak the stuff we buy.

No wonder you often foam at the mouth. ;-)
