Recipe Notes

[My 2 Cents]
I've mentioned several times about wanting to eliminate white flour and white sugar from my cooking. Over the last year I've made many changes to help the process along and at the beginning of the year I removed white flour and white sugar all together from our home. I'm happy to say that so far I haven't even missed it! It's amazing how the whole wheat flour has slid in and replaced the white flour almost effortlessly without hardly and notice. The flavor is still wonderful and I love knowing that I'm treating my body right. If you missed it and want tips on where you can start in your own kitchen, check out my Getting Healthy in 2014: Kitchen Basics Part 1 and Part 2. I'm working on Part 3 and will have that for you shortly!
