Dr Jockers Comments:
I used to LOVE Asian stir-fry’s and this healthier version does not disappoint. Ginger and garlic are not only amazing for the immune system but they have such a great aroma and flavor and enhance our digestive tracts.
We avoid the soy sauce as most forms of soy are high in anti-nutrients we want to avoid. Coconut amino’s are the perfect alternative to traditional soy sauce, providing the Asian like flavor without the enzyme inhibitors and phytates common in traditional and organic soy.
Many people think that buckwheat is a form of wheat and contains gluten. But actually buckwheat is 100% gluten-free because it is from an entirely different botanical family than traditional wheat. Buckwheat is not even considered a grain or cereal as it is a seed of a flowering plant.
Buckwheat, in all of its gluten-free glory, is actually closely related to rhubarb. In addition, it is an excellent source of fiber and nutrients. In particular, buckwheat groats (the small, triangular seeds), when cooked, offer 17 grams of dietary fiber or 68% of the daily requirement for a 2,000 calorie per day diet, as well as 22 grams of protein.
It is higher in carbohydrate so don’t go crazy with buckwheat but to consume some on an occasional basis is quite alright for most individuals. Using it as a noodle alternative is a great approach to replace the incredible pasta like flavor many of us grew up with while staying grain-free.
