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.

Chipotle Shrimp Quiche

When life calls, convenience and pragmatic simplicity take precedence over most things.

I had no idea what recipe I would feature this week until something caught my attention from the freezer of my neighborhood health food store: a whole grain pie crust.

Our Multigrain Energy Bar recipe has, to date, been the most popular of our site. In just over two weeks, it has been viewed 2931 times… and counting. We think that reflects the fact that snacks and convenience foods are where most people have a hard time maintaining healthy eating habits. It’s difficult to find packaged snacks that are naturally healthy, convenient, and affordable. In that spirit, we came up with this recipe.

whole grain banana bread

The road to Hana, Maui, is a wondrous journey. The 52 mile road is remembered by most for its more than 50 single lane bridges, over 600 curves, lush tropical rainforest, countless waterfalls, and excellent banana bread. The banana bread is sold at farm stands that line the roadside. I’ve heard some recall the Hana banana bread as the highlight of their trip — an amazing claim considering that this is perhaps the most beautiful stretch of coastline that many will ever see.

A weekend trip to the farmer’s market yielded a beautiful bunch of organic collard greens and some fresh handmade chorizo sausage; the perfect inspiration for Caldo Verde, Portuguese greens soup. I grew up eating this soup, made wonderfully by my Portuguese aunt.
