Just Pass the Bread

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Wheat Food Council. All opinions are 100% mine.

Have I ever mentioned that I love most anything that is made from wheat? Just give me bread, bagels, pasta and tortillas. Yum, Yum, Yum. I never understood those low carb diets, because if someone took my bread away I would not be a happy camper.

So, I recently discovered a site that lets you interactively virtually grow, harvest and mill your own kernels to create your desired wheat food. Go to How Wheat Works and get started. People of all ages can participate.

The program has four phases. Growth, harvest, milling/baking and the grocer’s aisle and only takes just a few minutes to complete, although the program spans the course of four days. You get to pick the type of wheat to be grown and at the end of each phase you will have the opportunity to prepare recipes from wheat grown in your area. Plus you can view harvest videos from “America’s Heartland.” There is a program that reaches out to our youths by providing kids ages 9 to 12 with learning, quizzes and information and strives to educate children on the benefits of wheat products.

The best part is the Wheat Foods Council will donate two pounds of flour, up to 90,000 pounds, to Operation Homefront, a non-profit that provides assistance to needy U.S. troops and their families. Of course this is near and dear to my heart because I do all I can to support our troops and their families.

ADM and ConAgra Mills, two of the world’s largest millers are making this possible. Also the Wheat Food Council believes that teaching people about the benefits of whole or enriched grain food can shed new light on wheat nutrition, resulting in better informed food choices. So check out and get started on a better, healthy lifestyle and have fun while you are at it.
