Real Food Challenge: Improving Your Grains

Week One, Day Two Challenge
Improving Your Grains

In our family, we eat whole grains.
However, we’ve definitely noticed a difference in our bodies if we don’t add a step when using whole grain products.
Today’s challenge talks about improving the availability of the nutrients in whole grain by soaking them in an acidic medium for 8-12 hours.
For those of us who already made most of our baked goods from scratch, adding the soaking step was no problem.

Here are some of the soaked flour recipes I use most often:
Soaked Whole Wheat Bread
Soaked Buttermilk Whole Wheat Biscuits
Soaked Applesauce Cake
Soaked Baked Oatmeal

Week One of the Real Food Challenge…
three days down, twenty-five more to go!
