From seed to loaf

This pair of videos give you an idea of what it takes to grow and harvest wheat on a small scale:



Now try doing this without all the modern tools and imagine what would go into feeding yourself a grain-based diet. Sure... I like to grow grains, just because I'm a plant lover... but in terms of feeding myself, forget it.

The only reason we can eat as much grain as we do is because modern agriculture has turned grain production into a science... and their efforts are heavily subsidized by government.

On a small scale, and for optimal health - primal/paleo is the way to go.
