Why all the fuss about soaking grains?

You may have noticed that I often refer to soaking grains before cooking them, and have wondered what’s up with that. If you’re already using good quality (even organic) whole grains and cooking them thoroughly, why would you need to add yet another step to your cooking? Aren’t you already doing the "healthy" thing?

For quite some time now I have wanted to write a post that explains in more details the why’s and how’s behind properly preparing grains, which includes either soaking or sprouting grains or using a sourdough starter.

However, Kimi at The Nourishing Gourmet has beat me to it! Her posts on soaking grains are very thorough and informative, and should help to answer many of the questions that you may have about this technique (and check out some of her yummy recipes while you’re at it- we’ve been enjoying several of them lately!).

Confessions of an imperfect homemaker

Homemaking is hard work (believe me! I know)! Managing the house, the finances, the marriage, kids, cooking, schooling, pregnancies and working from home can be so overwhelming. Yet in this "I can do it on my own" day and age, we so often don't know how to ask questions or even who to turn to for help. In my own journey as a homemaker, I was shocked at how little I knew when I first started on this path.

The Ultimate Homemaking Bundleis a complete library of carefully selected eBooks, eCourses, audios, online conferences, and printable packs from many of the top homemaking bloggers and writers on the web, to help you be the best mom and homemaker you can possibly be.
