False: whole wheat bread contains very few whole grains. 🔶 ⠀
the number one ingredient is usually “wheat flour” which is white flour with a few whole-grain flakes in it — and usually has a lot of sugar.
Going out, enjoying some sun and a good salad!

One thing i would never cut out of my diet is whole grains (oh, and legumes!). not that i am an advocate of a high carb diet either, but to me, cutting these things out is like ...eggs without the toast... it just doesn’t seem right. 🥚🍞 and now the science is giving us good reasons why. not only are whole grains packed with more than 25 nutrients including vitamins, minerals, protein and antioxidants but they are full of fiber to feed our gut bacteria and keep us regular and healthy.
cutting out grains reduces the diversity of your gut microbes .... and for optimal health, we want just the opposite... broad diversity.
whole grain foods are made with all parts of the grain and include, quinoa, rice, oats, wheat, freekeh and buckwheat.
True life: i have no idea how to photograph scones... our backyard raspberry production is very soon to surpass our ability to keep up with eating them (what an awful problem, i know), and while we usually just freeze the extra, i figured we should finish the remaining stock from last year before it comes to that. one cup down, one gallon to go. (recipe adapted from @chowhound to account for the fact that i had no cream/milk/nondairy substitute in my house, however they turned out pretty great using the powdered goat milk i keep on hand for sandwich bread baking.) #homebaker#wholegrain#sconesmakemefeelfancy#bobsredmill#freshbaked
