Maple Millet and Oats


Though it's a common ingredient in birdseed, this mineral-rich grain isn't just for our feathered friends. One cup of cooked millet provides 24% of women's daily requirement of bone-strengthening magnesium & 20% of immunity-boosting zinc. And emerging research on animals has shown that whole-grain foxtail millet can help reduce levels of triglycerides & inflammation, two risk factors for heart disease.
Since millet can be slightly chalky, Jennifer Iserloh, founder of Skinny Chef Natural Foods, combines it with oats to create a creamier cereal.
