Wheat verses Whole Wheat

2 Comments

In the dead of night, the heroic, mommy blogger continues on her quest…just kidding, it’s only 8:30 p.m., but I’m tired and ready for bed!  And yet, I write on!  🙂  The Super Baby Food book continues to be an ongoing wealth of information.  I just started Part II, which is all about cooking with whole grain, legumes and seeds.  I swear, the book is more like an encyclopedia than a baby food book.  It’s really for parents with kids of ALL ages and for anyone interested in learning to eat healthy.  I highly recommend it!  Did you know that wheat bread is really white bread.  You have to look for the label that says “whole wheat” not just “wheat bread.”  The food companies like to trick us since wheat bread sounds healthier.  I have not been paying that close enough attention.  The Super Baby Food book explains all about the benefits of whole grains.  Did you know that food companies make and promote white flour because it has an indefinite shelf life!  Just another reason to use whole wheat flour and eat whole wheat bread.

  1. Soon you will be storing various whole grains so you can make your own pasta, pancakes, and sandwich bread. 🙂 I’m interested in knowing more about seeds. Let us know what the book says… 🙂

    • Too true! I’ll post more about seeds – recipes and nutrition info. Basically, they are VERY good for you and great nutrition boosters. I like pumpkin, chia and alfalfa seeds. Add to yogurt or smoothies or anything. Yum!
