What have we changed? Our food…mainly, our bread. One year ago, I decided to ‘do the home school thing’…we began milling our wheat and baking bread. (We also began ordering our meat and frozen veggies from Blue Ribbon Foods and joined a fruit/veggie co-op from Nature’s Garden…and my grocery budget for the month is less than $400/month!)
Go ahead, roll your eyes (smile). I did too, the first time I heard about a friend who ground her wheat and baked her bread. But…then, I began asking questions and reading about it. I do that…I ask questions. Sometimes too many questions. But, questions lead to knowledge and knowledge to wisdom….hmmmmm….Solomon knew a few things, right!?
You see, the bread you purchase at the grocery store does not have wheat germ and many other NATURAL nutrients God gave us in wheat, which you need to really clean out your insides…and provide many essential vitamins for your body. So…when they are not cleaned out and full of natural vitamins, it backs up to your sinuses (gross, huh?)
(Think about it…do you remember hearing so much about sinus medications on television? The health problems we have now…will be nothing to what they will be in another 20 years, as we rely more and more on processed food.)
DO you know what else causes it? All of the stuff building up in your gut and anti-acids people are taking due to poor nutrition. The gases from your stomach are supposed to help clean your sinuses, as well. But, when those gases are depleted due to medication, your body can’t take care of it’s self.
No, I’m not Martha…and I’m not Mary. I’m just an ordinary Mom trying to make this world a little better for my family. We have seen a huge impact in our health thanks to these two items. I’m stretching my mind and building my abilities with baking….pie crusts, cakes, cookies……I can not tell you how yummy they are when using good, nutritious ingredients…that you won’t find at the grocery store.
So, take some time….read some books about wheat…and it’s benefits for your family. I promise, you will be grateful!
Note: I am not a nutritionist. I have researched information re: wheat and other products for well over three years. This post is my opinion…and is based on that research and the changes I have noted in my family over the past year. This has brought me to a new understanding of eating…what God has created, not what man has created. (The yummy loaf of bread above….baked while we ate dinner and tucked the children in!)
