^^ That’s how you say “hard boiled” in a deep Southern accent : )
I dressed up in my professional clothes today to go talk about bread to two elementary school classes! I went down to Great Harvest this morning and picked up my supplies and then came home for a quick pre-noon lunch so I could get on my way. I wasn’t terribly hungry yet AND my lettuce had turned brown, so I ended up serving hard-boiled eggs over a kale + bean + veggie sauté.
Hard boiled on top!
Hunk of bread on the side
My school visit was very fun. Kindergarten is such a fun age! Ms. Kate is a blog reader who invited me to talk about healthy eating through the lens of whole grains, so my subject was how to make bread and the difference between white + whole wheat flour.
I brought wheatberries, freshly ground flour and bread to visualize the process and white flour to talk about how it’s just a portion of the whole grain [using very simple kindergarten language!!]
They actually understood it really well, and they asked excellent questions!!
We ended with a taste test of Honey Whole Wheat. I’ve never seen so many kids love whole wheat bread in my life. It sure is a winner. They were so cute.
Back at home, ready for a snack before I hit up yoga with Seamane on this rainy, rainy day.
