Are there any non gluten substitues for wheat berries for Alissa's wonderful sounding breads & muffins?

Buckwheat!! I love it. It is so easy to work with and so useful as a base for breads, pizza crusts, cookies, etc...
Buckwheat is not a grass/grain, it is from a plant family similar to Sorrel. It is really an edible "fruit" seed.
For breads and raw unbakery stuff you have to get the hulled raw buckwheat groats.
If you want to grow buckwheat lettuce (ie sprouts) you have to get the raw stuff that still has the dark hull on it.
don't get kasha, that is roasted buckwheat. The raw groats are pale.
here's a link that says it's non gluten.
