Coach K Recommends Amaranth... Anyone Know What It Is Or What It Does?

Updated: May 17, 2019





Amaranth is the common name for more than 60 different species of amaranthus, which are usually very tall plants with broad green leaves and impressively bright purple, red, or gold flowers. It is a complex carb/ whole grain you can add to your current macro based repertoire! Amaranth contains more than three times the average amount of calcium and is also high in iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium.  It’s also the only grain documented to contain Vitamin C. Plus it has a high amount of protein- PAY ATTENTION VEGETARIANS!


This highly rated Arrowhead Mills Organic Amaranth can let you try this product without breaking the bank!


Cooking amaranth is very easy – measure grains and water, boil water, add grains, gently boil with the occasional stir for 15-20 minutes, then drain, rinse, and enjoy!  Cooked amaranth behaves a little differently than other whole grains.  It never loses its crunch completely, but rather softens on the inside while maintaining enough outer integrity so that the grains seem to pop between your teeth. People online recommend adding a little bit of cinnamon!
