Amaranthus

A treasured ancient food staple of Mexico and South America, with edible leaves and an abundance of protein rich seeds produced in long season areas, it also serves admirably as a cut flower and adds drama to the back of the border.

Amaranth Nutrition Facts
Cultivated by the Aztecs 8,000 years ago and still a native crop in Peru, the ancient history of amaranth can be traced to Mexico and the Yucatan Peninsula. Today, it's grown in Africa, India, China, Russia, throughout South America, and emerging once again in North America.
Somewhat of an unknown quantity to many, amaranth is tall - often six feet – with broad green leaves, bright red or gold flowers, and around 60 different species. The flowers are made up of miniscule, grain-like buds, one reason why this plant often falls into the "grain" category. But amaranth isn't technically a grain like oats, wheat, or rice. It's sometimes referred to as a "pseudo-cereal" because its nutritional profile is very similar.
One of the most important aspects of this tiny grain is that it's gluten-free. When ground, the flour is generally a pale ivory shade, although the red "buds" can be ground as well for a red-tinged and very healthful grain.

AA

One Sunday, my husband went to the barber. When I came back to the car, a man parked next to me asked me if I could jump start this car for him. I said, I can't, but he he would wait for my husband. He waited. My husband arrived and helped him.
I join the AA, so I can call the AA if my battery goes flat.
I love this AA recovery truck. It is a life saver. I have used him when I had absent minded forgot to turn off the lights on a rainy or misty morning. Once I had to wait for two hours in a cold dark winter dusk. Not very nice.
