Using A Grain Mill-Wondermill

When I think about grinding your own wheat I think of the olden days. Now, I don’t mean that like a bad thing, but we live in a day and age where we buy our flour and don’t give a thought as to where it came from and how it was created.  I actually think that’s a little sad. Shouldn’t we care a little more about what we are putting into our bodies? It’s interesting to me that we worry about the supplies used to make our home perfect, we want the best. We choose the best clothes, cell phones, etc, but when it comes to food, it’s the cheapest and most artificial that we go for. Now, I understand not having the money to buy the best of the best when it comes to food. It’s blasted expensive to buy the most organic, fresh etc, but we can, and should be taking steps to want quality going into our bodies. Trust me, it will pay off.

Grinding our own wheat not only saved us money while we have been money conscious through unemployment, but it’s also better for our bodies. I always thought grinding wheat would be too time consuming and labor intensive, but it’s not. Once you go fresh, you’ll never go back. 😉

We did some research and decided to go the WonderMill, because it is the best. We currently use the electric for recipes such as, Strawberry Muffins, Biscoff Banana Bread, and my absolute favorite Potato Rolls, but I’m dying to stock a hand mill in case of emergency. In fact, the more I see all of the natural disasters around the world the more I want one. You just never know what position you could one day find yourself, so why not be prepared. Not only would you be able to make breads, and other meals in case of an emergency, but just think of the help you could provide others who aren’t as prepared.

  • It's horrible some of the chemicals we put in our bodies, grinding your own grain sounds like such a brilliant way to get down to the basics of what is in our food and start out right!

And then I thought that I should check into grind my own wheat to save even more money. This post was so timely! I will definitely check out the Wondermill!

  • We have a wheat grinder but I have yet to use it. Maybe you need to come over and show me how–and then we'll bake lots of yummy bread. 🙂
