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.
|Low Fat Chocolate Truffles|

Pay close attention: I am sharing one of my most delicious secret recipes! These truffles are so good and, believe it or not, low in fat. Not your usual fat-laden truffles at all. The best part: they are as rich and creamy as any others you have tasted. These truffles are not missing anything in terms of flavor. The fat content will depend on the chocolate that you use since that’s the only source of fat in the recipe. With my chocolate of choice, each truffle came out to only 2.5 grams of fat. Woo hoo! Make some for your sweetie for Valentine's Day. Or if ya don't have a sweetie, just make 'em for yourself.
Here’s a poem to accompany your gift of truffles, if it suits your fancy. (Talk about a full service site!) All things French were brought to mind recently by my friend Pat’s stay in Paris (sigh). I became acquainted with this poem during my college French language courses. “Allons-y! Le Français Par étapes” anyone?
