Happy Spelt Day!

Bloggers of the Day: Mike and Catrell at The Wandering Coconut

Spelt is a one of many grains in the wheat family with loads of nutritional goodness...it's easier to digest than wheat so sometimes people who are sensitive to wheat can tolerate spelt instead (though it's not gluten-free). Its rich nutty flavor is a favorite in things like spelt spaghetti, cereals and crunchable crispbreads...yumza!

Professional travel agents Mike and Catrell happily globegallop with their three sons, meeting exciting people, learning about cultures and cuisines, and sharing their veg-friendly recipes too! Their lookout on life is all about health and wellness and enjoying life...Mike says:
• Food should be enjoyed, not feared
• Avoid processed foods and eat mainly a whole food plant-based diet
• Eat a wide variety of fruits and vegetables daily
• Travel and staying healthy can go hand-on-hand

  1. Europeans use a lot of spelt in their bread/desserts, I was surprised with that because in America, you don’t see the word spelt very often in the ingredients! I prefer spelt! Mike’s corn chowder looks tasty!

    1. I noticed a several spelt treats you've mentioned from your travels like the Austrian Spelt Apple Slices you sampled...yumza!
