Have you ever used fresh milled flour? Fresh ground flour is powdery soft, warm and 100 percent grain.

wondermill and grains

I personally use a WonderMill but there are many mills on the market.

Real whole grains are both nutritious and delicious. Whole grains are  easy to incorporate into any lifestyle. Breads made from freshly milled whole grains are healthy foods the whole family will eat and enjoy.

This book will answer many of the questions and dispel the many myths that surround bread and whole grains.

Here are a few examples:

  • What are “real” whole grains?
  • What are some of the common health issues that can be easily corrected by incorporating real whole grains into the diet?
  • Did you know that most whole grains can be stored indefinitely at room temperature with no loss of nutritional value?
  • Did you know that grains offer a nearly complete nutritional profile, making them the most nutrient dense food group available?
  • What are the main benefits of freshly ground flour?
  • Doesn’t bread make you fat?
  • What is the truth about wheat?
  • I’m busy – Is milling my own flour and making your own bread a time consuming task?
  • My family doesn’t like the whole grain bread that I buy from the store – how is the bread I am going to make from freshly milled flour going to be different?

    I’d like to try the Bobs Red Mill hulled Millet and see how it compares to rice for stir fry. My hubby had colon cancer surgery and is doing better but his liver is ever changed now and the Dr instructed getting more whole wheat in his diet. He loves stir fry and so I’d like to try the Millet for a healthy change in better meals. Thanks

    Wow, I used to have a flour grinder a long time ago – it was good exercise. I loved making different breads with fresh ground flours. We loved having flatbread warm from the oven with good cheddar cheese. I’ve been wanting to grind my own flour again, I’m spoiled.

    I’ve wanted to try spelt and millet in my baking but haven’t gotten that adventurous yet!

    I always buy the Bobs Red Mill. Our family has to be gluten free, so I make all my bread & buns twice a week. I love to bake as well, think I have tried just about every flour there is gluten free. Depends on the recipe but I love a nut flour in my baking to bring out a taste. Thanks for the recipe, I will be trying this one!

  7. Jordan D. says:

    I want to try almond or quinoa flour, or groats! I’d like to make healthy whole grain blueberry muffins! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  8. Jeffrey says:

    I’d like to use wheat to make some soft pretzels. Pancakes would be excellent too!
