Most people who follow my blog are into traditional foods, so when I got my invited to GNOWFGLINS free webinar I figured this was the best place to share.   GNOWFGLINS is one of my favorite places to get information, they are also the people who offered the free grain mill before.  They have a huge knowledge of traditional foods, you can subscribe to their site and have access to forums and online classes for a small monthly payment, or you can lurk like I do for free.  I have signed up to receive their newsletter and updates and webinar updates.  If you are interested in more traditional cooking I really recommend you check out their website.

I’ve been taking quite a bit of time to read other people’s blogs, what a fun world this is that we can read about what others are doing on the other side of the world!  I also enjoy that there are so many like-minded people.  Many people are “getting back to the land” and going more traditional in their cooking and eating.  I’ve read a couple this morning that really inspired me.  http://livegrownourishcreate.wordpress.com/ one of my blogging friends has a book that we both share, Nourishing Traditions.  My life gets off onto tangents a lot and I get lost in doing this or researching that.  Honestly in the natural traditional world it’s easy to find the next best thing and get off track.  I’ve been doing that recently with raw food.  Now, don’t get me wrong I think eating 51% of our meals raw is important, but I’m also losing touch that in fact the raw butter we use, and the raw milk we drink, are in fact…raw.  I was really inspired by this post: http://livegrownourishcreate.wordpress.com/2012/03/13/creamy-coconut-soaked-porridge/  I’m getting really lax soaking my grains.  This practice has got to stop and I started that with making some sourdough bread last night.

If you don’t have this book, I highly recommend it.  It’s huge and packed full of amazing recipes and ideas to eating more traditionally, less chemically, less artificially, more God given.  It seems so simple, eating fruit instead of fruit flavored candy.  Eating home-baked soaked grain, bread instead of the stuff that has to add BACK the nutrients to the flour, and add preservatives to keep it good on the shelf for two weeks.  True story:  Hubby had a friend who worked in a local flour mill.  This friend, Jack, would get us bags of freshly ground flour.  He could get two kinds, the whole wheat which was brown and lovely, and white which looked like every white processed flour there is out there.  But get this… after they milled the grain they had to then add back nutrients to the flour!  (read more about the milling process here)  That is why when you look at most breads and crackers you will see “enriched flour.”  What it’s basically saying is “fake processed flour” because they take out the God given nutrients to replace it with fake nutrients.  This is from the link I posted above “When grain is made into refined white flour, more than 30 essential nutrients are largely removed. Only four of those nutrients are added back in a process called “enrichment.” Using this same logic, if a person were robbed of 30 dollars and the thief then returned 4 dollars to his victim for cab fare home, then that person should be considered “enriched” by 4 dollars, not robbed of 26 dollars. How would you feel in that situation? You should feel the same about “enriched” white flour and bread? Only vitamins B1, B2, B3, and iron are added back. Nutrients which are removed and not returned include 44% of the vitamin E, 52% of the pantothenic acid, 65% of the folic acid, 76% of the biotin, 84% of the vitamin B6, and half or more of 20 minerals and trace elements, including magnesium, calcium, zinc, chromium, manganese, selenium, vanadium, and copper” (from http://www.drcranton.com/nutrition/bread.htm)  We are being robbed!  I just watched a webinar from GNOWFGLINS.com (they give free webinars so if you are interested sign up to receive notification in your email) about grain mills.  They are currently giving away a free grain mill (USA only…sorry my out of the country friends!) if you go to http://gnowfglins.com/2012/03/09/nutrimill-berries-giveaway/ you can sign up until this Sunday 3/18/12.  There are thousands who have entered, but everyone has a fair shot at it. 🙂

I’m planning on pulling out my Nourishing Traditions book this weekend and start going to town on recipes.  I’ll be posting some recipes and some photos as I go along.  Hope you enjoy the ride as much as I do 🙂

Hugs,
