Re: What foods are your go to for CARBS??

Here you go Jeff:

Soak several couple cups of buckwheat groats in lots of non-chlorinated water for 12 hours (if you're on a city water system, either use bottled water or tap water that's been boiled for a few minutes and cooled. If you're lucky enough to have water that isn't chlorinated to begin with disregard this step). Be sure to use a lot of water, they swell a lot during soaking.

Rinse the groats (they are really slimy after soaking) and keep them wrapped in a wet dish towel in a bowl or colander for 24 hours.

Completely puree the groats in a blender or food processor with a little of the dechlorinated water. You can finish the batter at this point, but I prefer to transfer the puree to a bowl and let it ferment 12-24 hours, stirring a couple times (a lot of gas gets produced during the fermenting, if you don't ferment it you will need to add more baking soda than I call for below).

For breakfast waffles I then add 1/2 tsp baking soda, a couple eggs, plus vanilla extract, salt, sugar and cinnamon to taste, and enough liquid to bring it to waffle batter consistency. The liquid can be water, milk, coconut milk (my preference), almond milk, whatever you like.

I also make these savory by swapping the vanilla, sugar and cinnamon for a little extra salt and sometimes some fresh herbs. The savory ones make a great gluten-free bread substitute (I have dermatitis herpetiformis so I avoid gluten completely).

You need to use a classic waffle maker for these (this is the model I have WFS). A belgian waffle maker has too much volume and will yield disappointing results.

This may seem like a lot of work, but it's mostly inactive time and there is less to do on the actual day you make waffles. For waffles on a saturday morning I will boil several quarts of water right before bed on Wednesday night, start soaking them thursday morning, drain and wrap them in a wet towel thursday night, and puree them friday night. On saturday all you have to do is mix in a couple items and the batter is ready before the waffle iron is heated up.

Did I mention that because of the sprouting/fermenting these are crazy nutritious? If you are judicious with the maple syrup they are absolutely not junk food and my kid gobbles them up.

Re: What foods are your go to for CARBS??

Wow, I'm actually surprised to see so much support for Oatmeal! I love oatmeal as much as the next person (especially with some good Canadian Maple Syrup on top) but I've read oatmeal is notorious for spiking your blood sugar levels, particularly with rolled (aka quick) oats.

Anyone sticking to the labour-intensive steel-cut oats in order to minimize the insulin response?
