Grain And Flour Mills: Make Your Diet Healthier

Eating nutritiously is great for your overall health and is a very positive lifestyle change. When you make the decision to eat a more nutritious diet it may mean cutting unhealthy foods out of your diet and replacing them with alternatives that many people think are both boring and flavorless. Luckily, healthy choices do not have to be flavorless or boring; there are several ways to eat delicious foods that are good for you. The following article will show you how to turn a boring healthy diet into a delicious, flavorful and healthy one.

One thing you need to do is get the junk food out of your house, and your life. When you decide to get healthier, you need to replace the unhealthy choices you make with healthy alternatives. Do you love chips? Replace them with baked chips, nuts or carrots. There are several crunchy snack options that are healthy and tasty. Do you like sweets? Fruit is nature’s candy and is very nutritious as well as tasty.

Another thing you need to get rid of is the white foods you eat. Replace them with whole grain options. Buy a grain mill (aka a flour mill) and any bread you eat or other foods with flour can be switched out with whole grain choices. Whole grains are much healthier and have more nutrients than white flour foods. Switch your breads and pastas to whole grain options for better health. Also, brown rice is a lot better for you than white rice.

Do you love meat? You can still eat meat when you are making the switch to a more nutritious diet. There are many different lean meat options. Chicken without skin is a great choice, and there are many healthy ways to prepare it. There are also beef and pork options that are healthy. Many meats are healthy and nutritious, but the way they are cooked can add a lot of fat and calories, so be cautious of the way you cook your meat to make it as healthy as possible.

Spices can add a lot of flavor to your foods. Spices are a great option as they are tasty and have very few calories. You can put different spices on just about anything you eat to help make it more flavorful. If you don’t like them whole – that’s another reason to invest in that flour mill to break them down so you don’t notice them but still benefit from the nutritional boost.

If you like variety in your diet, search for new fruits and vegetables. There are many different produce options. Check out local grocery stores and farmer’s markets to see what different options you can find.

Try out different cooking methods. Instead of frying chicken, you can bake it, and it can still be delicious. Grilling is another great option for meats and vegetables. Have you tried steaming vegetables? That is a great and healthy alternative.

There are so many benefits to eating a healthy diet. Eating more nutritiously does not have to be something that is boring. A healthy diet can be fun and tasty. Use the information you have learned in this article to make your healthy diet a tasty one.

A New Addition Now The Kitchen’s Up And Running

If you’ve been into the diner recently, you might have spotted the white camera near the serving hatch and wondered what it’s about. Listen carefully, and you might even have heard voices from persons unknown! That’s actually our chef talking to our service team that look after you, letting them know when food is approaching completion, so that we can get it to you while it’s still hot.

After the refurb, we found our kitchen was a little isolated from the rest of the staff, so our solution was found in an unexpected place.


A Brand New Kitchen For Flour City Diner

Our regulars may have noticed we’ve been closed for the last couple of weeks, and we apologise for the inconvenience.

As you may have heard, we had a small kitchen fire in early February, when our pizza ovens decided to cook more than the pizzas. Fortunately, no-one was hurt, and the fire service were quickly on scene to make everything safe, something we’re very grateful for. They gave us some advice on improving safety procedures, and as a part of that we decided to re-fit the kitchen area of the diner, meaning that we needed a few weeks to get ourselves back up together.


We’ve also done work in the restaurant area, and we hope you’ll enjoy it, with a much more bright and airy layout for our customers to enjoy while dining with us. We still have the same values, buying our food responsibly, and aiming to source as much as possible locally to support our local economy, which we’re very proud to be a part of.

Back on the subject of kitchens, we’ve put a lot of time and effort into being ready to offer a more flexible menu in the future, ranging (excuse the pun!) from extensive research into the best range cooker review recommendations, to planning our layout to give us the most space to allow multiple staff to work together in the kitchen to minimise the wait for food to be served after you order.

Here’s a really useful look into what we learned from our suppliers about planning commercial kitchen fitting projects…

We hope to see you soon, and please mention the website on your next visit as we’d love to offer you a voucher to return for a meal with a discount on us. More importantly, we’d love to know what you think about the new look, and what you think about our food. Our head chef Darren has been with us for almost a year now, so we know he’d love to know your thoughts, even if they’re difficult to hear!


Where Do You Buy Your Food?

Here at the Flour City Diner, we love food.

One of the things we’ve been thinking about recently is where to buy our supplies from, that is the raw ingredients that go into our lovingly prepared meals. At present, we go to Morrisons, or more accurately we get deliveries – now that they’ve finally caught up with the modern world.

This northern supermarket has had a bit of a rough ride of late, with falling profits and a public relations disaster when their (near) entire payroll file got stolen and leaked.¬†Of course, they’re one of the more customer centric companies out there, but that doesn’t stop a little brand damage being inflicted when sensitive data like bank details get leaked – even if it’s those of staff and not customers.

Where the supermarket really come into their own is with the added value idea, such as their magazine and website which give some fantastic Morrisons competitions to enter, with prizes like free food vouchers and holidays amongst other things.

So, going back to the original question, should things like PR blunders affect where we source our food? Does it matter to you? Let us know next time you call in!
