My comfort as far a temperature is concerned depends on my feet. If they are cold then my whole body is cold. If they are warm I am fine. I may have had my feet too hot before but I can not remember. Even while wearing plastic shoes my feet are fine.

Buckwheat and no gluten hmmmmm I wonder if I could fit it into my family's low carb diet.

Hi Liquidambar, good to see you again! That might very well be true of all of us, the warm feet thing, but I'm sitting here right now with very warm feet, yet my fingers and my nose are icy. It's very hard to type with frozen fingers.

You might check out the buckwheat, I think it's one of the good wheats.
Thanks for writing...
Stay warm!

Do you think that thick cotton sox with the end sewn up would be ok for holding the buckwheat seeds? I am tempted to order some seeds and try that. Actually I probably need to make a lined body suit that can be filled with the seeds cause my problem is serious. I wonder if my blood will ever freeze in a room that is warm enough for everyone else and folks will think I am dead.

I'm sure cotton tube socks would work well, Elena...but I doubt that anyone will ever mistake you for deceased...Maybe you shouldn't sit too still, though.

I guess if my mouth is still running full steam ahead I will probably be safe, huh?

I looked up the carbohydrate count for buckwheat it is 18 carbs in 1/4 cup as compared to 22 in whole wheat flour.

On the same site that list number of carbs, it also talks about glycemic load - it is about the same as whole wheat flour.

They also have an inflammation index (which is important since that is the problem with my family) It is worse than whole wheat flour!!! It is -300 compared to flour which was -278. It makes me wonder how they test, and figure out the inflammation factor stuff????

BUT no gluten. That is something for people on no gluten diet - looking for something to replace flour.

Oh, I know I am boring but I just thought I would let you all painfully know! Sorry.
