Eat Like Your Ancestors Did
Sprouted grains can be in tasty treats that your kids will love!
It’s a funny thing. The more options we have for convenience in food, the easier it is to stray away from nutritious, nutrient dense, vitamin-packed, all-natural and organic choices.
You know, the kind of stuff your grandparents ate and simply called…..FOOD.
It’s a tough cycle we are caught in, the population grows, and food production must keep up with demand and so more and more shortcuts have been invented.
Today, a growing part of our population has become allergic to wheat, gluten and all types of grains that are so important as a building block of good health. Up until rather recently, in the past 30 or 40 years or so, there weren’t really people allergic to grains. So, let’s talk about processing grains and where we went wrong.
Generations ago, harvesting and processing grains took time, time that was important in order for the grains to reach optimal nutrient density, therefore the foods made with said grains were chock full of all the essential vitamins and minerals the human body needs.
Not so anymore. Processing grains now takes place on a massive scale and time is of the essence so the “down-time” grains used to enjoy in order to realize their full potential, for the most part, has disappeared altogether, leaving grains and flours severely lacking in nutritional value. You know there is a problem when they have to go back and add things to “enrich” flour. Real flour shouldn’t need any additives.
That is where Bio Kinetics Living Sprouted Flours saw a real problem, and decided to find a way to bring the “healthy” back to the grains our bodies need.
So what on earth is “Sprouted Flour” you may be wondering?
Sprouting is the what they call the “master key” that assists in unlocking all of the nutrition and energy inside the seeds and grains, therefore giving you better ingredients for your body’s needs. The process of sprouting doesn’t remove the natural goodness from the grains, it increases it!
As it turns out, “sprouting” the grains has quite an incredible effect on the final product and how our bodies digest it. Sprouting a grain actually changes its composition from a starch to a vegetable! Yes. You read that correctly. As the grain sprouts it turns into a plant so then the body recognizes it as a vegetable, and seeing as vegetables are the easiest things for the body to digest the health benefits of that piece of bread just increased dramatically.
Our ancestors were doing it the right way from the start. Properly handled grains were rich with nutrition so our grandparents and great-grandparents were eating nutrient dense, organic, good-for-your-body, “whole foods” long before it became a trend.
The process Bio Kinetics uses takes much more time and energy to create the high-quality great tasting flours, but they believe that the health benefits are worth it. We couldn’t agree more! You can learn more about their sprouted living flours at http://www.bio-kinetics.com.
Now you can eat more like your ancestors so go on, enjoy that big stack of pancakes now.
It’s good for you.
