Do you make your own bread please?

I am a big fan of Dr Axe (youtube) and he said that we should stay away from wheat and white flour. I used organic wholemeal and organic flour every day. Was he right to suggest that please? What do you eat for breakfast or lunch please?

Are there better ingredients than those two kinds of flour please?

Have you got a better recipe please?

Would like to pick up some healthy tips.

Thank you in advance.

I don't pay much attention to agenda driven presentations. Seems many things that in the past were considered bad for you only to find out the experts were wrong. Everything in moderation and we'll be fine.

I stopped listening to "experts" telling me what I should or should not eat. I eat what I like and I'm still here at 74 years old and going strong.

Same here. Civilization was literally built on bread made from wheat flour. Someone would build a flour mill on a river at a spot where there was enough current to power the grindstones, and a village just naturally grew up around or near the mill. I see nothing wrong with wheat flour, like all things, in moderation. It has so many uses in cooking and for all of them I only need one big canister on the counter. I keep AP flour in this 2Ĺ gallon Anchor Hocking Montana Jar (holds a 10 pound bag of flour and then some):

I enjoy using it in many things I make and eat..breads, pasta, gravy, for dredging, etc..I don't eat it every day or anything, but I have no plans of giving up eating it, regardless of what people say about it..


And as far as the prying it from my cold dead hands goes, I am using a quote from Charlton Heston, when he spoke about guns..

There aren’t too many reasons I can think of to stop using wheat flour. Of course, people who sensitive to gluten, or are living with celiac disease need to eliminate gluten from their diet. And I’ve no clue about today’s modern diets.

If you’re fairly healthy, though, and not too overweight, go ahead and bake your heart out! Research flour strengths on the web, look into whole wheat and rye flours and how the can be incorporated into your baking. It’s all really quite fascinating!

I like this answer most. What is so good about rye flour please? Somebody suggests sour dough. I will listen to you and research a bit more on this. Thank you.
