I posted the other day about trying to eat healthier because of my daughter’s asthma. I decided instead of posting a tip I would ask for some tips about cooking and eating healthier. If you have any thoughts please leave a comment.
I have done some cooking with whole wheat in the past but mainly in yeast breads. I have used it some in other things but have not had the best success with it in desserts, muffins, biscuits, etc. I am wondering if it makes a difference in the final result if you grind your own wheat? Does it turn out better than the whole wheat I can buy in the store? I don’t buy regular whole wheat. I buy either King Arthur or Bob’s Red Mill. Is the trick grinding your own or do you just have to adjust to the fact that using whole wheat give you very different results?
For those of you who do cook with whole wheat a lot do you just adjust regular recipes or do you find better results with recipes written for whole wheat?
I have done some reading both recently and in the past on healthy cooking and eating. I am struggling with finding a balance between modern medicine and healthy cooking/eating. (I posted about it the other day.) Is there any books out there that have a balance or do you have to just weed through the books to find the information you think is relevant? I do want to eat healthier but I do not want to throw away all modern medicine. I have been quite discouraged with how anti-modern medicine most healthy eating books are. Has anyone else struggled with this? Do you have any advice?
