What's this all about?
We love whole grains! We have found that we prefer their flavor. They are also far healthier than the refined foods which characterize the typical modern diet.
Switching to whole grains helps maintain a low glycemic diet. That means you will have more sustainable energy levels throughout the day, and probably fewer problems with weight control.
We created this website with one goal: to build an online community of like-minded people who either share our enthusiasm about whole grains or just want to learn more about them.

If you have tried our banana bread, then you will probably understand why it is the most frequently baked item in our home. We absolutely love it. Yet, there are times when we seek a change of pace. Lately this is the recipe we find ourselves turning to. Valrhona cocoa, ripe pears, cinnamon, and lemon zest combine to create a flavor that is at once exotic and familiar.
This bread bakes up moist and delicious. Like our banana bread recipe, it is lower in sugar and added fat than most conventional recipes. It is also healthier because it is made with whole grain flour and organic sugar. This in no way compromises flavor or texture.
We recently shared this bread with friends at a picnic. They loved it as much as we do. We hope you enjoy it as well. It pairs well with a warm cup of spiced chai.
