Discover healthful quality and taste with whole grains!
For thousands of years humans spared neither trouble nor expense to freshly grind their grains. Today, supermarkets offer us seemingly wholesome ingredients such as corn, wheat, and rice. Yet, processing has changed these ordinary grains to such an extent that your body doesn't recognize or metabolize them any more.
Your body cannot efficiently use this so-called food and will send you warning signals - bloating, headaches, allergies, fatigue and more. In contrast, whole grains provide a natural set of nutrients that your body has been programmed through the ages to metabolize.
Our quality of life depends on the quality of our food. We can only expect superior health when our food is healthful and bursting with vital energy and abundant nutrients. Starting your day with a wholesome, nourishing breakfast goes a long way in caring for your health and that of your family. Learn how to buy, store and prepare whole grains, and enjoy the simple recipes in the back of this book.
