- The edge of the Great Dismal Swamp
Dag nab it!!! Got beat to the draw again!!
Can't have nuthin'!!
I haven't tried Einkorn flour, but I've been real happy with heirloom wheat flour from these guys.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?
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.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.

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?
Don't worry, Monsanto loves you all.
(Do some research on them. It will scare the heck out of you).
Just for the record, autism is not a "mental problem." It is a neurological disorder.
I still think the poisons we are being fed leads to all different types of problems
I had a customer at my job in MD who was convinced I (along with my children) was allergic to dairy and all grains because I always have dark circles under my eyes. He'd sayHe wanted me and my family to go on a diet of only fresh vegetables, fruit, fish and meat for 6 weeks to see if I felt better. No grains, no dairy. Sure, sounds great. Are you going to foot the bill?
He'd say things like, "Your kids get a lot of ear infections, don't they?"
Don't get me wrong, food allergies are serious business and I have actually cut way back on dairy and feel much better, but managing to consume enough calories to survive off of only fresh vegetables, fruits, fish and meats would cost a bit more than my monthly food budget. I too am a firm believer in moderation.
Yes, I know it's not a mental problem but I still think the poisons we are being fed leads to all different types of problems. A few additives here & there may not make a difference but when every single thing we ingest has ungodly amounts of the crap after a while it will poison us & I think it already has.
Look at the onslaught of cancer. I only originally named 3 things in my first reply but there's a whole lot more that I blame on all the GMOs & all the stuff they add to our food chain, they can keep their antibiotics, steroids, GMOs, & preservatives.
Today's bread tastes nothing like it did 20+ years ago, it takes so long for it to mold. I really need to start making my own bread but I try not to eat more then 2 slices a day anymore.

"Every single thing we ingest?" Really? Exaggerating doesn't prove anything....
That was how I understood it too.The way I understood matey's post didn't me "we" you and me. I know we eat a lot of from-scratch stuff prepared from fresh, wholesome foods. But, unfortunately, some people exist on only junky processed foods. Look in my shopping cart and you'll see about half the stuff is fresh produce. The other half is balanced nutritious stuff. No processed, no junk, no frozen or "convenience". Then look in the cart of a rather generously proportioned person and it's full of frozen dinners, sweetened cereal, box mixes - crap. I think the second group is the one matey tags as ingesting every that's crap. I know I see them in the stores and I bet you do too GG.
I was thinking the same thing about cancer. We do get more of those diseases that you have to live long enough to get. Okay, that's not worded quite right, but I hope you get my drift."Every single thing we ingest?" Really? Exaggerating doesn't prove anything.
Re: cancer, life expectancy has increased by a huge number in the last hundred years, so diseases that used to be rare are more common just because we're living longer. Cancer and Type II diabetes usually occur in older people as the body ages.
Re: bread, if it's poisonous, how does limiting yourself to two slices a day protect you?
