If you've been to the Big Buna Bash Facebook page, you know that I collect images of the buna ceremony.
Buna has many faces, and it really does bring people together!
So here are ten of my favorites:
teff: the gluten-free super food
Teff is the main ingredient for preparing injera, the popular Ethiopian fermented flatbread. It is a healthy wheat alternative that is high in resistant starch, a newly-discovered type of dietary fiber that can benefit blood sugar, colon health and weight loss.
Teff is an ancient species of grass native to Ethiopian/Eritrea, that is cultivated for it's edible seed and usually made into flour. These seeds are about the size of a poppy seed but are packed full of fiber and calcium.
Most Teff is grown in Eastern Africa, but the State of Idaho produces some of the best quality Teff in the world!

I had so much fun writing The Big Buna Bash, and I want to share it to inspire cultural pride in kids who might feel like they don't fit in because of their differences. I believe in diversity and inclusion; that's why I wrote The Big Buna Bash!
