Alternatives to Enriched White Flour
It’s difficult to live flour-free. Many foods are made with flour of some type and it is hard to go flour-free without switching to an all-produce diet or raw food diet.
There are alternatives to enriched white flour. Try replacing enriched flour with whole wheat, oat flour, rye flour, almond meal, brown rice flour, or millet flour. Pasta and bread are the foods that most commonly contain white flour, but pay attention as many processed and frozen foods contain enriched flour.
If available, sprouted flours are best. Preferably, organic. Organic sprouted whole grain pastas and breads are becoming easier to obtain although the best diet plan would contain little to no grains and more live fruits, seeds and vegetables.
Whole Grain Flour vs. White Enriched Flour
Whole grain foods are higher in fiber because the wheat germ and bran have not been processed out of them.
Whole grain foods are digested more slowly, leaving you feeling fuller for a longer.
Whole grain foods have more nutrients than “enriched” foods.
Whole grains are not processed as a starch, so they don’t throw your body into a sugar dependency cycle.
Experiment with a 10 day, no enriched white flour challenge, you might be surprised at how easy it is. Better yet, share the challenge with your family and friends.

Last night was all about practicing the balance mentality! After a busy week at work we decided to have some girls around for a platter and cocktail evening There was no guilt in indulging on cheese, crackers and a few too many drinks While it’s important to fuel your body with good food, it’s just as important to fuel your soul with good memories Happy Saturday friends!
