Its got a good amount of B vitamins and iron, down side is its got an abnormally low amount of lysine even for a grain which basically means if it were a large source of protein for you you'd need to eat more legumes. [1]

I get it in the bulk section of my supermarket, but its a small regional chain (WinCo).

 

Its got a nice sort of nutty flavor so I like to cook it up with a few nuts and eat it as a snack with soy sauce.

That sounds good and something I'd be interested to try.But can't seem to find it in my area.Would a large chain store have it or would I be better off finding it on the internet?Thanks for posting!:-)

Should be easy to find online. I looked on Amazon and found a couple hundred items. One thing to watch out for is that you're buying a bag of millet to use for eating, not spray millet, which is millet on a stick used as a treat for companion birds.

This is a pretty good recipe...millet with mushroom gravy and kale

The gravy is interesting- I think it might be the soy sauce? I liked it, but my mom did not.

I think I got my millet from Whole Foods, and it was the Bob's Red Mill brand.
