I love cooking as I’m sure you’ve guessed if you’ve visited my site before. All three of my children grew up in the kitchen and I want my grand-kids to learn to cook as well. I’ve been blessed to have Abby live with us and as soon as she could walk and stand she has been in the kitchen with me “helping” me prepare meals. While she is too young to cook at 3, she already knows which ingredients go with certain meals. She will ask questions such as why do you put this in there and why do you put that in there and I tell her because it’s healthy and it makes you grow big and strong. Her response is always “but I’m already a big girl”…
Anyhow, the reason I love Barilla Whole Grain is because it’s HEALTHY and it TASTE DELICIOUS. Cooking healthy meals is important to me. I have to consider that no matter how healthy a meal is that I cook, if no one likes it, it’s not going to be eaten. I didn’t have to worry about that with the Barilla Whole Grain products. Everyone loved the taste of the meals and each ingredient I incorporated into them. Plus, an added benefit is that Barilla Whole Grain is a natural fiber. With Abby’s little tummy problems she has at times, Barilla Whole Grain keeps her “going”.
