THE FORGOTTEN MILLET
The small fairy of grain cereals, lived in the big bakery. Once in her dream her graceful shoe has slid off her foot and rolled under the bottom shelf.
Where has my beautiful shoe disappeared? The fairy became quite upset, having woken up early in the morning. And she begun to search for it everywhere.
After a couple of minutes the fairy managed to find her tiny shoe under a shelf, behind one dusty package. Picking up this shoe, the fairy carefully put the package on one of the shelves above.
Oh, so good that you helped me to get out. For a whole month I was lying under this shelf and even started to lose vitamins. Millet cannot be stored for long otherwise it gets a bitter taste, exclaimed the package.
But who put you under this shelf, please tell me, lovely bag? The fairy was surprised.
Somebody casually dropped me on the floor, and then accidentally someone's leg pushed me under a shelf. But now all my troubles are over, somebody will buy me, and I can present the person with all my healing qualities - the qualities that I inherit from my parents millet grains.
Wow! It means, you made from millet? asked the fairy.
Quite right, millet are the grains of millet which have been clean from brown husk. My parents, millet's grains are pantries of health. They are so rich in vitamin B, and they contains much more phosphorus, than meat does, readily explained the package of millet.
Amazing! If you contain such a lot of vitamins then one can use millets for medical purposes, right? asked the fairy with a surprised voice.
Certainly, dear fairy. Millet heals the liver, treats diabetes and helps fat people to lose their weight. Millet is digested slowly, and its digesting requires a lot of fat. The body uses its stocks of fat and due to this the person loses weight in a healthy quick way.
Besides millet cleans the organism - it reduces the left-over antibiotics in an organism. Therefore the one who uses or used any antibiotics, by all means should eat a millet cereal.
You are real miracle! exclaimed the fairy.
Unfortunately, I have one shortcoming, admitted the millet package. One who cooks me should remember to add oil by the end of cooking millet, otherwise millet can't be digested well.
Don't worry, somebody will buy you and surely will remember to add butter in you, replied the fairy and carefully wiped the dust from the millet bag.
How can I thank you for your kindness? asked the millet package.
