I have used whole wheat flour in some of my recipes in this blog. The consistency is a little heavy, but it works the same. I have used it with my sugar cookies and dinner rolls recipes. Remember I mentioned before that I wanted a grain grinder before? Yes, it would be nice to grow my own and grind it myself. My parents grind their grains when I was little, and I think it’s the best way to be healthy. However, there a lot who don’t have land to plant something and rely on their local grocery store for everyday needs.
I am talking about wheat because I wanted you to visit “How Wheat Works”. They are running an interactive program to educate us on how wheat gets to our local grocery store. You can virtually plant wheat, each of four phases takes a few minutes to complete. For each participant, the Wheat Foods Council will donate two pounds of flour and up to 90,000 pounds to Operation Homefront, a non-profit organization that provides assistance to needy U.S. troops and their family. Not only we can learn how to grow wheat virtually, we also help people in needs. This program is also being extended to youth through www.wheatfoods.org.
