Everybody Loves Grains

Pin It!

(Everybody should, anyway.)

Something (er, someone) else everybody should love? Heather! “Excited” doesn’t even begin to describe how I felt when the mailman brought me the following package from Heather:


Old favorites (Chocolate love-in-a-jar spread, Jocalat bar), as well as some new fun finds. I was especially intrigued by the truffles… and boy, those babies didn’t disappoint!

Chocolate-Covered Meal of the Day


Other news: I’ve added yet another grain to my rotation.  Can you guess this one?


Katie is the baker, photographer, and author of the popular blog Chocolate-Covered Katie. Her favorite food is chocolate, and she believes in eating a balanced diet that includes dessert every single day. More about Katie—>

    I have a confession to make: I don’t like grains. Well, once in a while. But mostly I avoid them. And it’s more than just a gluten-free thing too… buckwheat, quiona, millet, and even brown rice. I want to like them, I just don’t. Maybe I’ll have to try whipping up some of your excellent oatmeal recipes with my quinoa flakes.

    ps. I tagged you in a post in my blog. =)

  3. brandi says:

    what a fun package! and yes, truffles are the best way to end a meal :)

  4. Sarah says:

    I’m laughing as I’m picturing you telling people that you can’t have any carbs because you are on Atkins.

    I love Heather (and chocolate, obviously).

  5. Krista says:

    If I listed all my favourite grains we’d be here forever so I’ll tell you my least fave…rice. Now, I do like it, just not near as much!!!

    Great package, by the way!!! :)

  6. Christina says:

    I have a World of Grains tshirt that says Graniac – you totally need one! My top grains are Oats and Bulgur with Quinoa and Barley tied for 3rd!

  7. Katie says:

    Mmmm Pumpkin stir fry!? Sounds delicious!

  8. Jessica says:

    Mmmm, I’m a carb girl too! My favorite is probably oatbran. I love eating it for breakfast every day and I never get tired of it!

    I’m totally jealous of the truffles :)

  9. Of course, I love grains too! And chocolate, and truffles, and English muffins (love them savoury with houmus, or sweet with chocolate spread) and, and, just food in general I guess! I have yet to try kamut though but really want to, you make it sound delicious! So what’s the new grain? :)

    Awesome parcel of goodies too!

  10. i have no idea what your mystery grain could be! i can’t wait to find out 😉

    my favorite grains: fresh whole wheat bread (can’t beat that!!), oatmeal, and quinoa (not actually a grain, but i love it!).

  11. runsarah says:

    I love carbs and grains too-couldn’t
    live without em for even day,let alone a whole diet.

  12. coco says:

    I love all kinds of grains too, top in the list? oatmeal and oatbran! (hard to pick up only one)

  13. Coconutgal says:

    Carbs are amazing. My friends on low-carb diets crack me up, they are so cranky all the time and never believe me that eating carbs doesn’t make you fat, it’s the kind you eat. Silly girls.
    I am so GLAD you don’t write posts and run. I was seriously worried. I thought that you must have some hand-held device that you like clicked away and typed on while running, while dodging hills, bushes, streets, cars, and somehow knew your running trail so well you were able to do this. Phew, I was worried!
    Thank you for the get well wishes :)
    My guess is buckwheat?

  14. That would probably be oats and barley, but I like them all :)

  15. Marianne says:

    I’m going to guess quinoa 😀

    And I don’t know that I have a favourite grain. I probably consume oats the most, but they all have their place. Barley is pretty awesome, especially in soups. Mmmm.

  16. Shelby says:

    What a delicious package from Heather! She is such a sweetheart =)

    My favorite grain would have to be oats or barley…so far!

  17. Emily says:

    Im a Carb QUEEN too! lol I wouldnt last one minute on Atkinis.

    Heather is amazing!!

  18. Sharon says:

    I love carbs tooooo!!!!

  19. Ricki says:

    Yes, grains are deeelish! But I’m afraid Heather is still a mystery to me–the link didn’t work!

  20. Are those quinoa flakes? Quinoa is my all time favorite grain, although technically I don’t think it is actually a grain? hmm… oh well, it is sure delicious..

  21. Sarah says:

    I’m going to take a wild stab and say that it’s buckwheat kasha?? If it is, YUM! It’s a favourite carb of mine :). Yay for giftiness too!!

  22. monica says:

    I’m going to wildly guess farro? Where my italians at?:)

  23. Sagan says:

    I’m a carb girl too. That package looks awesome!

  24. ttfn300 says:

    awww, love the package! i’m gonna guess millet? who knows, i don’t think it looks quite like that but oh well :)

  25. broccolihut says:

    I have many favorite grains, but I think I like oatmeal and grits the best lately. Couscous is up there too.

  26. Vegetation says:

    I’m carbariffic too. I pretty much live off of grains (of course with other foods throw in but they’re the main staple of my diet).

    Awesome care package! More stuff to be jealous of 😛

  27. That package is filled with some GOOD STUFF!! And pumpkin pie stir fry?! That sounds delicious!!

  28. Mihl says:

    Yes, awesome she is!
    I think my favourite grain is oats for breadfast…and wheat of course, because I bake with it quite often. But Grünkern aka smoked spelt is also great. You see, I can’t decide. :)

  29. Brandi C. says:

    That a VERY nice package = ] Can’t wait for the new recipe, YAY!

  30. Kiersten says:

    I could NEVER do a low-carb diet either. I would die without my fruit and grains. My favorite grains are oats and bulgur. The only grain I really don’t like is kasha.

  31. Emmy says:

    Just bought bulgar for the first time. I have to find recipes to make with it. Any suggestions?

    And barley, such a yummy grain!

    Have you tried amaranth.. it definitely made it into my top five!


  32. Diann says:

    You know how I love grains too. I’m sad to report that Chase and I have decided we feel better grain free, so we’re taking a break from them for now. Well, trying anyway. I will eat them vicariously through you.

  33. Elle says:

    i saw brown rice flakes at our local co-op the other day and was reminded of you, lol. i love a nice filling bowl of hot grains in the morning, mmm. :) xoxo

  34. Elyse says:

    Yay! Getting packages is so much fun :) I love oatmeal, but I’m also a huge fan of quinoa!!

  35. DJ says:

    I love carbs but they don’t love me – well, not completely, they love my ass! That pumpkin-pie stirfry sounds intriguing…

  36. NO WAY your mailman’s name is Leroy too?!? Hilarious, and so glad you enjoyed your package Katie. I’m fighting Chris for the last of our Mighty Maple supply as he found my hiding place. Thank goodness he has yet to find the Cacao Bliss. :)

    Hmm, buckwheat? Amaranth?

  37. Erin says:

    YUM! Katie, I have gotten to the point of eating at LEAST 1/2 pkg of lite mori-nu (blended) each day, thanks to your genius!
    It makes a great dessert!
    I think oats are probably my fave too. I like brown rice a lot but never make it!

  38. Anonymous says:

    The best grain is absolutely Rye! I used to eat rye bred all the time when I lived in Finland and now I’m missing it like crazy, because I moved to down under. :(

  39. veganhomemade says:

    Pumpkin Pie Stir Fry? I’m very intrigued. My favorite grains would have to be brown rice and quinoa, they are the ones I use the most for sure.

  40. I love carbs too. I think I would die without grains! But what section of the market do you find kamut flakes in? Maybe the markets I’ve gone to just don’t carry them. I’ve looked at the Whole Foods I go to, AND my local co-op. Both always have tons of other grains and hot cereals, but kamut flakes are nowhere to be found!

    P.S. I love your blog, I’ve been following it for a while! You’re pretty entertaining, girl!
