#Fonio has long been used as diabetic friendly food because it is low in glycemic index. It is slowly absorbed in the body and therefore its effect on blood sugar is very gradual. Fonio will quickly become one of your favorite grains as its flavor is delectable and its nutrient benefits are impressive.
It is a #glutenfree grain, making it loved by the celiac community. Not to mention it contains many amino acids and is also a plant based source of Magnesium, Zinc, Thiamine (Vitamin B1), Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Calcium, and Phosphorous!
It’s high iron & folic acid content also makes it perfect for all women including those that are pregnant! Learn more about fonio on our website - link up in our bio!
1 cup Atacora Raw Fonio
6 cups water
1 Tablespoon agave or other diabetic friendly sweetener of choice

Berries & nuts – however the possibilities are ENDLESS!
In a sauce pan, boil water. Once water starts to boil, turn heat down to low. While stirring, slowly add Fonio to avoid clumping. Once it is nice and creamy, transfer to a bowl. Drizzle with agave or your favorite fruit spread and top with fresh fruit and/or nuts!
