Because much of our modern food supply is laden with refined and synthetic ingredients, we need to support organizations that help us make informed decisions about the food we eat. One shining example of such an organization is the Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF).
WAPF was established in 1999 to preserve and carry on the important work of Dr. Weston A. Price, a dentist with a passion for nutrition research. In 1939, Price published Nutrition and Physical Degeneration, his landmark study on the detrimental effects of processed, refined diets on dental health.
A common staple of most processed, refined diets is bread—so one way you can reduce your consumption of processed foods is to eat healthier bread. A 1958 article in Let’s Live Magazine by Dr. Royal Lee offers this advice: “The only wholesome bread is that made from wheat that has been ground into flour by a stone type mill within a few hours of its conversion to bread.” Why? As Dr. Lee notes, “whole wheat flour is as perishable as milk.” And, of course, you’ll want to make your whole wheat flour from organic wheat.
So how does grinding your own wheat support WAPF? Well, if you’ve been thinking about making your own bread with freshly ground wheat, now is the time to buy a grain mill. When you purchase an electric grain mill from Traditional Cook, they’ll donate $20 to WAPF—and you’ll get a free gift! Click here to see how you can support WAPF.
