Barley Whole Wheat Rolls

I had some barley in my pantry that I wanted to try making some biscuits or rolls with.  I made these rolls for our family dinner and they were gone in a hurry!

The barley gives the rolls a slight nutty flavor.

Barley is part of the grass family.  It is generally used as a cereal.  Barley is high in dietary fiber, magnesium, vitamin B6 and low in fat!  So much nutrition!  Who knew!?!

Barley Whole Wheat Rolls

It is important to get as much nutrition as you can from the food you eat.  Your body will thank you for it!

6 1/2 years ago when my husband said he thought he found a way for me to get rid of my fibromyalgia and arthritis with the food I ate I thought he was crazy.  I have learned a lot about the foods we put in our bodies and that it really does make a big difference!

Not only has it made a difference with my aches and pains but I have more energy.  My thyroid function has improved.  And my osteoporosis has drastically improved!  In fact I don’t have osteoporosis anymore!

Healthy Apple Fritters

My husband LOVES apple fritters!  I think he loves anything with baked apples.

I use whole wheat flour in this apple fritters recipe.  Sometimes when using whole wheat flour it gives the recipe a heaviness.   I like to use white wheat.  That helps a lot with the heaviness.

The best wheat to use for this is soft wheat.  I don’t have any soft wheat right now so I used the hard white wheat and it works great!

Trash Can Turkey

3 years ago just before Thanksgiving my husband said he was going to cook our turkey in a trash can.  My first thought was a trash can?  That is disgusting!

Healthy Apple Pie

Apple pie is one of the most requested pies for Thanksgiving dinner.  Our  Thanksgiving dinner consists of apple pie every year!  My hubby and kids LOVE apple pie!

This recipe is great because we use apple juice as the sweetener.  Fruit juice is sweet by itself so why not use it as a sweetener as well.   Normally you don’t want to drink a lot of fruit juice because it is almost all sugar without much fiber or other nutrients.

Whole Wheat Rolls

It is time to start thinking about Thanksgiving dinner and plan your menu.  I don’t know about you but rolls are a must!  And whole wheat rolls are the best!

I love Thanksgiving time!  Family gathered together!  Great food!  Football games!  Naps after eating yourself silly! 🙂

With all the cooking we do it is nice to have a few easy things on the menu.  These rolls are easy to make and have only a few ingredients.  And the best part is they are delicious!

Chocolate Caramel Bars

One of the things I love is caramel!  I do have a sweet tooth and I love that I don’t have to give the sweets up!  As long as you use raw honey to sweeten instead of refined sugar or sugar substitutes you can still eat healthy.

There are SO many health benefits to raw honey!  I have put together some of those benefits here.
