I made a Lobster Sandwich the other day and I used whole wheat bread . I also listed it as one of the ingredients. Our family has already started using whole wheat bread since we discovered its nutritional value. Whole wheat bread contains four times as much fiber as white bread.
If you want to have a better understanding of wheat’s nutritional value or if you want to re-discover wheat , go to www.HowWheatWorks.com. How Wheat Works is an interactive online multimedia program that delivers a farm-to-fork education on wheat. Everyone can participate and virtually grow,harvest and mill their own kernels to create their desired wheat food. You can even choose the type of wheat to be grown and wheat flour to be milled. The program spans the course for four days but there are four phases in the program which takes just minutes to complete– growth, harvest, milling/baking and the grocer’s aisle.They also provide wheat based recipes which you can explore and prepare for your family to enjoy.
For each participant, the Wheat Foods Council will donate two pounds of flour, up to 90,000 pounds, to Operation Homefront, a non-profit organization that provides assistance to needy U.S. troops and their families. This donation is made possible by members at ADM and ConAgra Mills, two of the world’s largest millers.
You can also teach and extend your learning to your kids with the Just For Kids Web Site, a fun, educational resource created for children age 9-12. The website features games, quizzes and kid-friendly recipes that will help enable children understand the health benefits of wheat.
The Wheat Foods Council we believe that teaching people how a whole or enriched grain food comes to be can shed new light on wheat nutrition, resulting in informed food choices.
