Brandy was invented as a way of dehydrating wine! They thought you would just add water later. Turned out to be more interesting as brandy.

There is something to the way wheat is raised today. It has much more gluten than the older strains, which seemed to be effecting some folks in a negative way. The best is to listen to your body. If you're bloated and lethargic when you eat breads and such, then eat less of them.

Ive been wanting to try the einkorn flours, they are made from a more ancient grain and thought to be healthier. Has anyone tried them yet? If so, any adjustments that need to be made?

And you're so right about the fad diets. I had a gal tell me the other day the south beach plan really works, she's done it four times. Really? If it works why do you keep needing it?

I haven't tried Einkorn flour, but I've been real happy with heirloom wheat flour from these guys.

4.5 lb Organic Hard Red Wheat Flour - Milled Medium - Bluebird Grain Farms, Grower of Organic Emmer Farro, Whole Grain and freshly mil

This flour works great for bread. Unlike some of the store-bought whole grain flours, I've never had to add vital wheat gluten or make other adjustments to get a good rise.

Here is the loaf I baked yesterday using it.

That looks yummy, thanks for the tip. I'm going to check and see if I can get some from my co-op.

I have no experience with einkorn wheat. I haven't even noticed it at the health food store. I would love to hear your (or anyone else's) experience with einkorn.

I believe the written article. With the way they are modifying our food source I think it is the root of a lot of our problems today. Yes, Americans do pile their plates too high & that is a good part of our obesity problem but I honestly think that all these GMOs is the reason we are running rampant in depression, autism & other mental problems. Name one other country that has the same kind of problems, as high as we have with the 3 things I listed above & compare their food sources compared to ours.

This is my opinion & I am not here to debate it, it's just how I feel.

We eat way too many preservatives in our diets & other unnatural chemicals that don't belong in our food source.

I lost 40 pounds last year from eating better. No more boxed crap, no more fast food, some exercise & as much fresh foods as I possibly can.

I also think some of the ways we cook our foods could be a problem. I don't like microwaves at all & if it was up to me I wouldn't have one in the house. I don't trust them even though I can't stop eating popcorn out of them & if your read the ingredients on a bag of microwave popcorn, you are basically eating melted chemical but it's a weakness of mine.

Just for the record, autism is not a "mental problem." It is a neurological disorder.
