The time to cook, we all know, is less and less to which the little desire is united dictated by the tiredness of the day of work and family commitments. This, however, does not mean eating badly or relying on ready, industrial and not very kind foods with our health. Just organize yourself.

Molino Marello Molino buckwheat grains are ideal for being cooked in the morning, while we have breakfast or while we wash and dress. Once drained they can be kept in the refrigerator even a couple of days, as you can do with other cereals such as rice.
