I know what you’re thinking, but adding more whole grains to your diet doesn’t have to be boring. Barley, farro, kamut, polenta and wheat berries are just a few of the grains highlighted in Ancient Grains for Modern Meals.

    I would love to win this book because chemo therapy left me with a servere memory impairment. My favorite thing is reading cook books. I have a wonderful collection and would love to add just one more about grains. I'm also allergic to wheat and mangos, so having a book like this would be a great service to me. I really need alternatives to wheat to round out my diet choices. Thank you.

  4. Amy says:

    My husband is diabetic and we are trying to eat more whole grains, so a cook book like this would be very helpful. You can never have too many whole grain recipes.

    I try to get in more whole grains by making my own breads, that way I can choose how much whole grains get into my body without depending on a store. I also try to eat a whole grain, like oatmeal or barley or whole grain cereal for breakfast.

    I used whole grain bread but admit to being somewhat intimidated by some of the other "exotic" whole grains. Would love to win the cookbook to have an idea how to use and prepare other grains.
