The Role of Whole Grains


One of the main benefits of becoming a Natural Cook is the role that whole grain plays in your diet. Due to the nature of our old world recipes, everything is made with whole grains. This is simply because things all-purpose flour and white processed rice did not exist in the old world kitchen. Because of this, everything eaten holds great nutritional value.


Feel like making chocolate chip cookies or maybe a chocolate cake? Every bite will be giving you vitamins and other nutrients.
