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.

The nice weather that we had on the East Coast for TWO days had me daydreaming about our time in Hawaii and the best lemon bars ever from a little bakery in Honolulu. I was so inspired I came up with my own lemon bar recipe and, I must say, these bars are fabulously good!!!! The shortbread crust and the zesty lemon filling combine to create an addictive treat. WARNING: The entire pan was gone in half an hour. We could not eat just one.
I decided to blend whole wheat pastry flour with white whole wheat flour to create the ultimate crust. I wanted the delicateness that the pastry flour would provide, but I didn't want a very crumbly crust so I added the white whole wheat flour too. I used Meyer lemons because it's what I had at home, but you can also use a regular lemon. Meyer lemons are a cross between a lemon and a mandarin orange. They are a little sweeter and less acidic than a regular lemon.
