Whole Grain

In the quest to stay local, I have started to read about the evils of white flour and the benefits of using whole grain. Processed white flour is missing two very healthy parts of the grain, the germ and bran. These are removed so the flour won't go rancid. I found a local co-op that freshly grinds their wheat and bakes bread to order. I ordered a few loaves and will see how they taste. Sprouting wheat and soaking the grain can be nutritionally beneficial as well. For me, one step at a time. I am anxious to see how fresh ground local wheat bread looks and tastes. :)

I actually haven't missed bread in my diet. John and Ben on the other hand cannot go without it.
