Breads/Baking

Introduce yourself to whole grains with Vanilla Coconut Pound Cake

There they all are, in most grocery stores, outlets and health food stores. Bob’s Red Mill bags of 100% organic flours, beans, peas and grains have his smiling face and message “To Your Good Health” on the front. Each bag describes the specifics of the product (usually only ONE ingredient, unprocessed of course), nutrition, tips, and how to use it with easy to follow recipes. More recipes can be obtained by calling the company. They sent me tons of individual gluten-free recipes when I was catering, using their products, and they answered any question I posed on the phone. The company has over 400 products! Little did I know how many cookbooks they had for sale! I have them now, and you will see lots of easy, healthy-eating right here.
