Organic Whole Grain Review & Giveaway

Monday, January 18, 2010

{This giveaway has ended, Congratulations to Kristy #150.}My husband bought me a Vitamix for our anniversary and I have been dying to grind wheat with it. Thanks to Tropical Traditions, I finally had my chance. Tropical Traditions graciously sent me a 5lb bag of their Organic hard red spring wheat. I was so excited when this arrived. It didn't take long for it to be ripped open and put to work. It was so amazingly easy to make flour. It literally took me less than 1 minute to grind this wheat into flour. Fresh organic flour! And then the baking extravaganza began!

Here are a few of the things I've made so far:

Fresh Bread and Rolls

Whole Wheat Cinnamon Rolls (photo taken before rising)

Half whole wheat/half white flour chocolate chip waffles (a little less healthy than usual...)

I really loved reviewing this organic whole wheat! It was so fun to use and so good to know we were using a real, whole ingredient in our baking. I've also really come to love the Tropical Traditions company! Not only have they given me the opportunity to sample all sorts of great organic coconut products (and now this whole grain) but they also sell grass-fed beef products, sea salt, and all sorts of great natural products. They are a great natural and organic company. They even popped up in the book I just finished reading, Real Food (it's a good one, by the way.)

To share the whole grain goodness, Tropical Traditions is giving one Suburban Jungle reader the chance to experience their Organic whole grains! One winner will win a 5lb bag of organic hard red spring wheat.
