    Wow, I’m impressed with the number of buckwheat products your company offers. Your page on the nutritional content of buckwheat is particularly interesting.

    We need to get in the habit of finding the camera *before* we bake the waffles; otherwise they tend to disappear before a photo shoot can happen.

    I like that flax seed is a plant based source of Omega 3s, that combined with natural anti-inflammatories are superb for the cardiovascular system.
