How are you today??? Me? I’m okay. A little bummed, but nothing to get upset over. Although I may not like it when a “communication breakdown” occurs – it is after all expected in life! Rather than getting upset over it or causing any kind of detriment to my day…the beat goes on!
Last night was the last and final batch of Rejuvelac from wheat berries. It is technically my 3rd overall batch and I have decided to try another type of grain. The next grain I am sprouting will be – Oat Groats. I will let you know what the difference in taste is – if any!
So far I feel a HUGE DIFFERENCE with the Rejuvelac!
Clarity, Endurance, and a calmer vibration. When E3 Live is added to the mixture it is the most wonderful feeling! Positive, ALIVE and absolute B-L-I-S-S!
As I was working in the kitchen last night, I came across one (there are 100′s by the way ) of my FAVORITE books – Recipes for Longer Life by Ann Wigmore.
Rejuvelac the “water” of the Institute, puts into your body the enzymes cooked food doesn’t. Enzymes help freindly bacteria such as lactobacillus bifidus grow. Lactobacillus in turn gives off lactic acid, a natural astringent, which helps your large intestine maintain it’s natural, healthy, vitamin-producing environment. This leads to a clean colon where sludge does not collect on colon walls, and where harmful, disease producing bacteria are unable to survive.
Since the Rejuvelac is pre-digested (fermented) the proteins are broken down into amino acids, and the carbohydrates into simple sugars. These nutrients are assimilated by the body with little expenditure of energy. Rejuvelac is rich in eight of the B vitamins, as well as vitamin E and K!
Great information, huh? We can thank Ann Wigmore for this wonderful Healing Elixr!
Spent Wheat Berries
So my last adventure didn’t turn out to well when it came to the spent wheat berries…or so I thought! I had initially set out to make ESSENE BREAD but it ended up being batter and/or oatmeal – rather than dough!
I attempted to make the best out of a bad thing and made RAW COOKIES!!!
Here they are!
They are actually good. I was afraid for a moment, but my wonderful “taste tester” stepped in and made a happy face when he bit into the cookie!
Here is another shot!
Since I have approximately 4+ cups of wheat berries, I decided to place the other wheat berries into the Dehydrator to dry them out before I use them again.
Here they are about to go into the Dehydrator…
I will update what becomes of them tomorrow or the next day! Hopefully my Essene Bread (RAW BREAD Adventure #2) will be much more successful…fingers crossed!
Look at these beauties! Radish Sprouts! When I pulled these out of the jar, I thought how fun it would be to make a dish around them! So that is what I will do tonight! (Do you see the little heart the leaves made? Right at the top of the cluster!) PURE LOVE!
Newest Raw Food Find
I mentioned the Mineral Rich Crusts in my last posting here and wanted to show you what the packaging looked like! They are pretty tasty and very filling!
No Impact Man Highlight of the Day
I think I have mentioned how the earth bestows wonderful produce upon me via customers and people within the community.
One of the most wonderful additions to my day on Monday was this gift!
This gift from the earth came via a very knowledgeable guy in the community. He climbed his own tree and picked these avocados for me. He says it’s better to give them to someone who will eat them rather than allowing them to fall and rot on the floor. He also brings me these wonderful lemons. He calls the darker ones Mandarin Lemons and the lighter ones the Sour Lemons.
I always use all of the produce he gives me and I am so thankful to both the earth and him for bestowing this gift of life upon me! The universe always manages to encourage me!
Besides the “No Impact” of this guy using what is growing in the community, he walks everywhere – he NEVER drives, and he brought me a paper bag from his lunch to use as both the bag I would take the produce home in, but also to ripen the Avocados! How much more “No Impact” could this guy be? Love it!
Here they are in the bag awaiting to be eaten! I placed them here among my DVD’s since I am usually picking movies out to take to the store or watch at home. I figured if they were right in front of me, I couldn’t forget about them!
Okay, so let’s not pay attention to the fact that the bag says “The Hat” a local burger eatery in Los Angeles – known for their pastrami…life is funny that way..huh?
Thank you for reading!
Love and Light!
