Wholegrains such as quinoa and buckwheat are absorbed more slowly than refined grains, so they keep you satisfied for longer. They may also help fight diabetes and obesity. They are easy to prepare, and tasty when combined with other grains such as pearled spelt and wheatberries. Toasting gives a richness and greater depth of flavour.
