MESQUITE MEAL

This traditional Native American food is produced by gathering ripened seed pods from the mesquite tree and grinding them into a high protein flour. Desert dwellers have used mesquite pods as a staple food for centuries and bartered with them to neighboring tribes.

Mesquite meal is great for flavoring steaks, chicken, pork and fish. It can be added to vegetable stir-fries, scrambled eggs, biscuits, breads, soups, even ice cream. The list is endless.

Mesquite meal can be used as either flour or a spice. As flour, it is generally used in combination with other flours using about 30% mesquite. As a spice, sprinkle generously then grill, fry, broil or add it to almost anything for a great mesquite flavor. It won't take long to adjust the amount to use for your personal taste.

In addition to its great taste, the major benefits of mesquite meal include high dietary fiber content, high protein and a high lysine content.
     It's also a good source of manganese, potassium and zinc. The result is a food with the ability to stabilize your blood sugar level. This is very good news for diabetics, weight watchers and for those who want to eat healthier.
     For anyone who uses a meal replacement drink and finds they are hungry long before lunch time will love mesquite meal. Just add a tablespoon of mesquite meal to your drink. It will help you stave off hunger for about 4 to 6 hours.

Mesquite meal is available from Essential Living Foods  - all organic.  It is called Algorroba.
