DeeAnn8, have you ever tried oat groats? I cook them just like rice or other grains in the oven. They are delicious. I then use them in recipes as a substitute for any other grain.

I like to bake 2 or 3 different grains at the same time, covered with foil for an hour. I find If I cook them when the people I'm feeding are in the house smelling the aromas, they are more likely to eat the dishes that incorporate them later.

I love an aromatic rice like golden rose brown rice or jasmine brown rice baked with a cinnamon stick in the casserole. Next week, I'm going to bake a batch with fresh ginger in it, on the advice of another Sparker.

I got seriously into whole grains about a year ago. A friend of mine had a friend who mills her own grain to make flour and gave me a CD by Sue Becker of BreadBeckers. We went to their store in Woodstock, Georgia (about 2 hours away) and that's how it began. In the past year I've used more and more grains. I grind Ezekiel mix for the flour for muffins, waffles and pancakes and hard red and white wheat to make our own bread. At first my husband wanted no part of it, but over the year he has come around and we no longer buy bread from the store unless I get lazy and we run out. I feel its making a significant difference in our health!

I have a hard time getting DH to try many new things. So I guess I usually stick with oats. I love the old fashion oatmeal with all that hearty texture.

What is everyone's favorite whole grain? I love quinoa and rolled oats.

emoticon Hi Will,

Thanks for posting. I try to do as much whole grain as possible and almost never eat plain white (or faux whole wheat) bread any more.

I'd like to try some of the lesser known/used grains, but my family is not too adventurous.

Hi Willboy!! I read this a couple days ago and I am using mostly whole grains only in my diet for the first time. I am feeling better and fuller and not wanting meat as a result. My cupboards look much different than they used to. I feel like I've gone back in time when life was simpler!

emoticon Yes I read the article earlier to day and really enjoyed the article so much I saved the article.

I'm sitting here reading this newly posted article on the Sparkple.com site about whole grains. It's very informative.
