    Poached egg and chicken hash sounds awesome! How was it?
    (And you didn't have to eat a hamburger.)

    I admire what you're doing! I look forward to reading (and seeing) what you eat everyday. Thanks for sharing! I'm curious about your homeground wheat berry flour. Do you really grind it yourself? You've inspired me to seek out local food producers to feed my family.

    cookiecrumb - it was perfectly cooked, smaller portion, warming and homey - I believe it might be right up your alley?

    Carolyn - I know, it was a little decadent, but it was a Saturday and I fancied a treat. I'm plan to have the same thing for breakfast tomorrow, but unfortunately I think I will be subbing sensible yogurt for the ice cream as its a work day.

    Hi Jacqueline. Indeed I do grind it myself. I have a mill attachment for my kitchen aid and I bought a 50lb sack of wheatberries from Eatwell Farm to last me through to next summer.

    Good luck searching out local food producers in your own area.

    I agree - ice cream for breakfast can't be beat! Except for brownies, perhaps :)

    That being said, mine are are not locally sourced... your on take is admirable and impressive, well done. Now all I have to do is source my brownies locally so I won't feel so guilty for my 8am feed!

    I use a Country living grain mill from Healthy Harvest for my grain grinding. It is hand powered and does not produce a lot of heat on the wheat berry etc that can minutely change the properties of the grain you are grinding. I also like the fact that I don't rely on electricity to use it. There are other models, I bought this one because it will last my lifetime.

    Thanks for the reply, Sam! And thank you, Cameron, for the mill suggestion.
