T'was a fun and information filled day at The Whole Wheatery!
The atmosphere was permeating with the aroma of teas, wines, chocolate treats & the engagement of the community. Guests were able to sample various products, including prepared chocolate desserts from our kitchen with complementary recipe cards. In addition to our display, we also had guest vendors present during the event. Bio-K, Garden of Life and Craft With Me made an appearance to showcase their products. The Whole Wheatery staff is thankful for all who have attended and participated in our event. If you missed out on all of the festivities, here is a visual recap of what went down:
WHAT IS THE WHOLE30?
Founded by Dallas & Melissa Hartwig in April 2009, the Whole30® is a diet designed to change your life in 30 days. Think of it as a short-term nutrition reset, designed to help you put an end to unhealthy cravings and habits, restore a healthy metabolism, heal your digestive tract, and balance your immune system.
Certain food groups (like sugar, grains, dairy and legumes) could be having a negative impact on your health and fitness without you even realizing it. Cut out all the psychologically unhealthy, hormone-unbalancing, gut-disrupting, inflammatory food groups for a full 30 days. Let your body heal and recover from whatever effects those foods may be causing. Push the “reset” button with your metabolism, systemic inflammation, and the downstream effects of the food choices you’ve been making. Learn once and for all how the foods you’ve been eating are actually affecting your day to day life, and your long term health.
The physical benefits of the Whole30 are profound. More than 95% of participants lose weight and improve their body composition, without counting or restricting calories. Also commonly reported: consistently high energy levels, improved athletic performance, better sleep, improved focus and mental clarity, and a sunnier disposition.
The psychological benefits of the Whole30 may be even more dramatic. Through the program, participants report effectively changing long-standing, unhealthy habits related to food, developing a healthier body image, and a dramatic reduction or elimination of cravings, particularly for sugar and carbohydrates. The words so many Whole30 participants use to describe this place? “Food freedom.”
WHAT FOODS ARE RECOMMENDED FOR A WHOLE30 DIET?
To maximize the benefits mentioned above, Whole30 recommends that you eat moderate portions of meat, seafood, and eggs; lots of vegetables; some fruit; plenty of natural fats; and herbs, spices, and seasonings. Eat foods with very few ingredients, all pronounceable ingredients, or better yet, no ingredients listed at all because they’re whole and unprocessed.
WHAT ARE SOME BRANDS THAT ARE WHOLE30 APPROVED?
Whole30 provides an Approved® label, which is designed to let you know a product is 100% compliant with the rules of the Whole30 program, and that the product line and company who stands behind it has been vetted and authorized. These companies have a personal relationship with every Whole30 Approved partner, and feel confident that their products, core values, and mission are in line with Whole30's intentions. At The Whole Wheatery, we have a large selection of these approved items to help assist you in your 30-day journey. Here is a list of some of what we have available.

When most of us get serious about our health...
We begin to pay more attention to what we put in our body and generally tend to overlook what we take out of our body. However, both aspects (what we put in and what we take out) are critical to our overall health.
THE PURPOSE OF FOOD IS TO:
1. Provide the body with the vitamins, minerals and nutrients it needs and;
2. Help the body get rid of the things it doesn't need.
If these two purposes are not met, the body's health and function is compromised. Since many of us do not pay enough attention to the second purpose, we end up doing more harm to our bodies than good. Bio Coffee solves this neglect. Primarily a digestive aid, Bio Coffee is specially formulated to fulfill both purposes simultaneously, thus leaving your body healthier than before.
ONLY FOUR INGREDIENTS!:
Ingredients contained in Bio Coffee are high quality Instant Arabica Coffee (made from prime washed, organically grown Arabica coffee beans), Non-Dairy Creamer (glucoses syrup from tapioca starch & vegetable fat from palm kernel) Oligosaccharide (from chicory root) and Wheatgrass.
Bio Coffee contains both Prebiotics and Probiotics!
Prebiotics in Bio Coffee
Prebiotics allows the body to get more out of the foods eaten by helping the body break down and absorb the vitamins, minerals and nutrients in the foods consumed. This is vitally important since there is no benefit in eating the right foods if our bodies cannot extract the essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients from them. Breaking down food into something the body can use, not only satisfies our hunger, but also gives our body what it craves for energy production, pain relief, cellular repair etc.
Probiotics in Bio Coffee
Probiotics help us move food through the gut and help get rid of the leftovers from our diet that the body doesn’t need. The health balance probiotics support makes more sense when we understand that no matter how good the foods we eat are, if the body doesn’t break them down and absorb them, they become waste. This waste, if not removed, rapidly starts to deteriorate our health. Think about it from this viewpoint- if your body doesn’t use all the cholesterol you eat, and doesn’t eliminate the excess, there is a build up that sooner or later will cause high cholesterol. The same goes for salt, sooner or later, one develops high blood pressure.
The process is even more exasperated when the body encounters something it can’t recognize or break down such as processed or refined sugars. If the body doesn’t recognize it, often it doesn’t know what to do with it and pushes it to the side. This means a very small amount, if any, is being used and the majority is piling up thereby increasing the chances of high sugar levels, or more commonly known, sugar diabetes.
What makes Bio Coffee alkaline?
It's the key ingredient, Wheatgrass. Green vegetables in general can effectively neutralize acids in the body because they are rich in bicarbonates and other alkaline minerals like calcium, magnesium, manganese and iron. Among all vegetables, Wheatgrass is hailed as the "King of Alkaline Foods."
In a study done in the Japan Analysis Center, the alkaline properties of Wheatgrass were compared to different alkaline foods such as lettuce, limes, tomatoes, bananas, celery and spinach. The acid-neutralizing properties of wheatgrass ranked the highest at 66.4 megahertz, as compared to spinach which came in second place at 39.6 megahertz. Further analysis done on Wheatgrass revealed that it has high levels of bicarbonates, alkaline minerals, trace minerals and oxygen-rich chlorophyll which all effectively neutralize acids in the body. These alkalizing properties of wheatgrass have a lot to do with the many health benefits of Wheatgrass. What does this mean for you? Remember, an acidic environment promotes diseases, inflammation, including cancer, heart disease, arthritis, and respiratory disorders.
