Editorial Reviews

From the Author

There is a higher level of fear and uncertainty about our world today than there has been since the great depression.  This is motivating many to think of preparedness and food storage.  We also have more difficult economic times and more uncertainty about our economic future than any time since the great depression as well. 
 
Food storage is a significant household expense.  In addition, many stored foods are not as nutritious as fresh foods.  Both of these issues are addressed by using viable, sproutable grains and legumes as the core of your food storage plan.  In this domain, wheat is king because of its long term storage qualities, its nutritional value as a fresh food (especially when sprouted) and its superior bread making qualities.  While whole grains are relatively inexpensive to acquire and store, many people are not familiar with how to easily and efficiently turn them into food.  In answering these questions for myself, I compiled the first edition of this book in 1994.
 
In this third edition, I have added a substantial amount of new information and broadened my explanations and descriptions of many of the basic principles and processes of storage and cooking with wheat and other whole grains and legumes.  Many of the improvements in the book came as a result of questions, feedback and criticism from readers of the earlier editions. For this, I am grateful. 
 
I wish all the very best in prosperity and security.

I recieved this book and sat down to read it ...it was kind of small, and I thought I'd be disappointed. Boy, was I surprised! This book has such complete and good information that i am sure a person could learn to live, food wise, quite well with it alone. It goes through all the grains a person might want to use, how to take care of them, cook them, make yeast,sprouting, recipes and an excellent resouce guide to help you find the grains you need.
I have half a dozen recipe books on using grains, and have been disappointed in each of them. This is one of the best books ever on this subject.

I would urge anyone who is interested in grains or self reliance to read this book!

Originally did not have this book on my reading list: I thought "living on wheat" would be too difficult and far more advanced than my simple cooking skills.

I am happy to admit I was wrong about my initial impression. Live on Wheat has a lot of good information for the beginner. It includes a lot more information on various types of grains, food storage, and how to cook them.

Since I am highly interested in developing some bread making skills, this book is helpful to me. The section on sourdough bread has great information on making a starter dough. I am also planning to try my hand at sprouting and unlike some sprouting books I have seen, the book is quite honest about which ones are tasty and which ones taste nasty. The chapters are brief but packed with a lot of information. You will appreciate this if you are not into fluff, and do not have a lot of time to pour into complicated instructions. As someone who does not have a lot of space, I was also encouraged to know you do not need a lot of new equipment to try the sprouting or bread making recipes.

Live on Wheat is practical and quick to read, and has good recipes for everyday use. It would be a great addition to your kitchen and survival library.

Good book if you are into using fresh ground wheat and stuck on one recipe only. Basically, everything you wanted to know and then some is in this book.

Everything you wanted to know about wheat, but didn't know who to ask. I am now sprouting wheat to make sprouted wheat flower. My first was out of this world. I am now growing wheat fodder for my critters. I am happy to have purchased this book. It will not go in the stack of glanced over, and put in the bookshelf books.

This book is very informative and an easy read. It goes into the history of grains as well as delving into the properties fo the grains, individually. I learned a lot from this book about nutrition and what to add to grains to make proteins, etc....
