September: Whole Grains Month
Septembers seem to arrive faster every year. This small step into fall brings lunch boxes and school buses, cooler temperatures and, what we Southerners look forward to most: Football Season! September also kicks off something we love here at To Your Health- Whole Grains Month. Because of the hard work that began with mason jars and a dream 10 years ago in Peggy’s kitchen, we are not only blessed to offer y’all organic whole grains, but organic whole grains that are sprouted right here in Alabama thus taking the nutritional value to another level.
As stated by our friends at the Whole Grains Council, people who consume whole grains reduce risks of heart disease, stroke, cancer, and diabetes. Few foods can offer such diverse benefits. People who eat whole grains regularly have a lower risk of obesity, as measured by their body mass index and waist-to-hip ratios. They also have lower cholesterol levels. Because of the phytochemicals and antioxidants, people who eat three daily servings of whole grains have been shown to reduce their risk of heart disease by 25-36%, stroke by 37%, Type II diabetes by 21-27%, digestive system cancers by 21-43%, and hormone-related cancers by 10-40%.
To Your Health is pleased to provide a wide variety, 17 in all, of organic, sprouted grains and whole grain flours for all your baking needs. Our newest product is a sprouted gluten-free snack, Simply Sprouted Granola. Hands down, this is my favorite whole grain snack and I love that I know whose hands prepare it every week. Peggy’s niece (and my cousin), Karen, is our newest employee! Karen comes to the farm and heads to the barn’s commercial kitchen for granola making each week, and like the sandwiches my mama put in my school lunches every September, it just tastes better when it is made with family love. It is packed with the whole grain goodness of our sprouted rolled oats and our sprouted oat flour, and even the seeds and almonds are sprouted. This wholesome snack is gluten-free, organic, and low in sugar. If you haven’t tried our Simply Sprouted Granola, you are simply missing out on a delicious and wholesome way to add enjoyment to your day.
To further celebrate Whole Grains Month, we are offering 15% OFF our Simply Sprouted Granola! Please use code TYH915 at checkout. Offer good through September 30th.
Sprouted Product News
As of September 1st, we will no longer be offering our products in 10 lb bags. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause any of our sprouted friends.
It is always our mission to provide the highest quality sprouted products possible to our customers. Due to a recent change in our sprouting equipment, we can no longer sprout buckwheat optimally, and therefore have chosen to remove it from our product line.
