I know around the holidays many of us start thinking of food. I mean who doesn't think of the family being together and huge meals, where you stuff yourself. The problem is, most of our holiday eating is unhealthy. We overeat and partake of too many sweets. We often pay for our over indulgence throughout the following days and of course some of us add weight that we try all year long to shed.
How about adding some healthy eating into your holiday menu? Now, I don't mean to change all your menu plans around, but what if you could make a few changes here and there to help make it a little more healthy by using Kretschmer Wheat Germ.
Maybe one morning for breakfast you could try their Pumpkin Waffles with Wheat Germ.
This would be quickly become a family favorite here!
You could add their Whole Wheat Cloverleaf dinner Rolls with Wheat Germ to your holiday menu!

Here is another one that would be a favorite around my home, Buttermilk Cornbread! My family has to have cornbread with their chili and often with soups, so why not make it healthier!
Well, now that I have made everyone hungry, let me tell you a little bit about how we have used the Kretschmer Wheat Germ. My daughter has added it to her oatmeal and yogurt. We have added it to meatloaf and sprinkled it on salads. It is an easy way to add some fiber to your meals.
Packed with nutrients, protein and fiber, Kretschmer Wheat Germ—produced proudly in Manhattan, Kansas—is making headlines as one of healthiest foods on the planet. Kretschmer products are part of the Sun Country Foods family, a company dedicated to healthy eating, located in Norwood, Massachusetts.
Why does the Mayo Clinic list wheat germ as one of the “10 health foods for eating well?” It’s simple: Gram for gram, wheat germ offers a significant dose of vitamins, minerals and protein. Tiny in size, but a nutrient-rich powerhouse, wheat “germ” (short for germination) is the part of wheat that sprouts and grows into a new plant. Despite being the most vitamin- and mineral-rich part of the wheat kernel, it’s left out when wheat is processed into white flour. Yes, we think that’s a shame, too! Because not only is it good for you, it’s delicious, with a satisfying, nutty flavor and distinctive texture. Here is what the Mayo Clinic says about wheat germ: “Wheat germ adds a healthy crunch to virtually any recipe, from pancakes to fruit smoothies.”
