Here We Go...

This is my first post of my Suzie's Sweet Wheat blog. I want to start by telling you some benefits of a whole wheat diet. First of all, there is significant evidence to show that whole wheat diets contribute to overall weight loss when compared with diets rich in white flour. Whole wheat is chock full of magnesium, which helps with both glucose use and insulin secretion. This acts as a natural defense against Type 2 Diabetes and Insulin Resistance. The high fiber content in whole wheat diets helps alleviate constipation problems, thus reducing the chance of developing diseases relating to these problems.

Whole wheat contains B vitamins which helps metabolize carbohydrates, proteins and fats. They aid in the formation of red blood cells and proper nerve function. It also contains Vitamin E, which protects our brain cells and cell membranes from damage and promotes healthy immune systems. It is full of iron, protein, zinc, phosporus and many other vitamins and minerals.
The coolest thing about whole wheat, is that you can make everything from the Berry Angel Food Cake Trifle in the picture to pizzas, soups, breads, cakes, cookies, sandwiches, pastas, etc., and you don't have to feel guilty about feeding it to your family! I am almost done with my cookbook, which will have ALL of my recipes in it. For now, stay tuned and I'll post recipes now and then...feel fry to try them and comment!!!
