I've been saving for months. All the money that I got here and there for selling items that we weren't using has finally added up to enough to buy a Nutrimill! I'm so excited and can't wait til it gets here. I'm hoping it will be here by the end of the week.
Now of course I'd love to hear all about your experiences with a grain mill! I know some of my readers have them, and I've chatted with a few of you about them. I've also read a couple other blogs which helped me make the decision to buy a grain mill, and which mill to get.
I decided on the Nutrimill because of the way the canister works. If you load the top, it makes enough flour to fill the canister, so you don't have to measure. I also like that it has solid reviews all around for quality, ease of use, etc.
So why did I want to buy a grain mill? I'm guessing at least a few of you are wondering :) Well, the biggest reason is because the flour we get from the store just doesn't contain the nutrients that the whole grain wheat does. Even whole wheat flour from the store is lacking in the essential vitamins and nutrients that should be there. Did you know that once milled, wheat loses 45% of it's nutrients within just 24 hours of milling? And within 72 hours it has lost 90% of it's nutrients! Makes me wonder what good we get out of store bought flour and breads. It's certainly not what we think we are getting!
I also love learning new things about health and experimenting with food, so I really think I will enjoy milling my own flour. I bake bread at least twice each week, and occasionally I bake cakes, cookies, muffins, etc. I even make pasta, tortillas, and pitas once in a while. It's just something I enjoy doing.
I'll be sure to update you all once I've got the Nutrimill in my possession. I wish I could invite you all over to try the first loaf of bread too :)
