Grain Mill Wagon Challenge Experience:
I was thrilled to be a part of the Grain Mill Wagon Challenge. Our family has been making the effort to eat healthier for the last year and a half by switching to more whole grains/whole foods and doing away with the processed/refined foods. Being a part of the Grain Mill Wagon Challenge allowed us to just further that effort by giving us the option to mill our own flours and learn more about incorporating whole wheat and other flours into our diet.

While milling our own flour is an extra step, the WonderMill has made it so easy and quick that it isn't an inconvenience and our whole family has enjoyed the benefits of fresh milled flour. Being a part of the Grain Mill Wagon Challenge has encouraged me to find more ways to incorporate whole grains into our diet as well as find family favorite recipes.
