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.

Soba Spring Roll

Fresh Vietnamese spring rolls make the perfect warm weather treat. They burst with freshness from the flavors of fresh mint and cilantro. Spring rolls make a great appetizer, or a delicious alternative to sandwiches for a picnic treat. Our version is made with Soba noodles.

Soba is a traditional Japanese buckwheat noodle with a rich history. The flavor is mild and works quite well as an alternative to the white rice noodles commonly used in spring rolls. While technically not a grain, buckwheat’s groats are used as a grain and are packed with nutrients. Buckwheat is rich in the bioflavonoid Rutin which is known to have antioxidant properties and has been shown to prevent oxidation of LDL cholesterol, thus reducing the risk of heart disease.

Do you eat much corn? It is a grain, you know. We often treat it like a vegetable. I’m not all that crazy about corn. I think that nutritionally there are other grains available that make better choices. When it comes to dipping a grain into some delicious guacamole, however, not much else really comes close.
