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.

"I went to a restaurant that serves 'breakfast at any time'. So I ordered French Toast during the Renaissance." ~ Steven Wright
Breakfast for me on most days is "to go", and consumed after I arrive at the office. I usually prepare it in advance to ensure that it is nutrient rich and satisfying. On the weekends, I believe breakfast should be an occasion. I want to linger around the table with my family and savor a culinary experience.
While this recipe won't transport you to the Renaissance, the flavors and textures of whole wheat flour, sweet potato, and toasted pecans, will gently lure you into a relaxing weekend. These waffles are possibly the best I have tried and they are absolutely packed with nutrients.
Sweet potatoes are among the most nutrient dense foods in the world. They are loaded with fiber, vitamins A & C, calcium, iron, and antioxidants. Combine that with the benefits of whole grain flour and you have a very healthy breakfast, that doesn't compromise on flavor.
