Review of the Book: How to...Live on Wheat The Complete Guide to Storing, Prepareing and Cooking Whole Wheat, Whole Grains and Legumes

Recently I was asked by author John Hill if I would mind reading and reviewing the latest and third edition of his book, HOW to LIVE on WHEAT The Complete Guide to Storing, Preparing and Cooking Whole Wheat, Whole Grains and Legumes.

I admit at first I was not sure what to expect from a book titled How to Live on Wheat. However, once I received a copy of the book and started reading I was immediately impressed with how much the book actually covers especially for a book of its size of 134 pages. It should really be called the Complete Guide on Storing Grains and Legumes, Preparing Sprouts, Grinding, and making your own bread, pasta and more.

In addition, about half the book is about preparing food, and includes a great deal of recipes. I have not yet tried any of the recipes and I will not get the chance until after I my wife and I are done with our house hunting and move. I will provide an update once I do try some of them though. 

If you're the type who is interested in storing your own grain whether for preparedness reasons or just in general this book is a MUST have.

Some of what this book covers:

  • Different Types of Grains and Legumes
  • Nutritional Considerations
  • Food Allergies and Aflatoxins
  • Proper Grain and Legume Storage
  • Shelf Life
  • Moisture Content in Wheat
  • Making and Cooking Sprouts
  • Making Wheat Grass
  • Making Bread (Essene and Sourdough)
  • Cooking
  • Making Gluten Meat Substitute
  • Numerous Recipes

I am amazed at the amount of information inside this small paperback book. It is very easy to read and extremely informative covering everything you need to store and cook with grains and legumes. It is the perfect book for people wanting to store grains for preparedness or survival.
