The wisdom to store basic grains comes from the Word of Wisdom, that councils: “All grain is ordained for the use of man, . . . to be the staff of life. . .” Grains not only provide great variety and food value, but they also store well for long periods of time, without need of rotation.
Processing grains into prepared cereals and mixes not only strips nutritional value, but also increases cost: 65-85% of the original nutrition of wheat is lost in making refined white flour. Shredded wheat offers less food value from the cereal than from eating the box it came in. The need for prepared mixes diminishes with increased knowledge of basic recipes. Bisquick, Wheaties, Cheerios, and Rice Krispies cost big dollars verses home production foods that cost pennies per pound and give best food value.
And we will save the discussion about roughage and regularity for another day.
Keep it simple, make it good, and reduce expense. This wisdom makes good cents.
