Our household is filled with opposites. Loud children, quiet parents. Coffee drinkers verses a man who shakes his head at such indulgences. Almond butter is dwarfed by peanut butter. Kimchi advocates eat it by the spoonful and the sauerkraut fans digest it sparingly.
We all love bread, though.
But not all of us thrive on bread. This dichotomy creates a weird dance in our household.
At times I feel like I am shrieking, “No, don’t let him have grain!!!”
Yet, that evening we will dine with family and devour a pizza.
I find myself regretting that seemingly “easy” road I opted for.
The tummy ache soon follows. Anger rises and peaks the following day. Lethargy. Thumb sucking worsens. Little limbs are consumed with a continual itch until the grain irritant has made its way through and out of this delicate system. The ears no longer register what the parents are saying.
Our lesson is learned. We avoid processed grain for a good week.
We forget our lesson. The Engineer and I find ourselves in yet another situation that is easier to compromise on than be prepared for.
Bread is trump. Toast in the morning loaded with coconut oil, raw honey, cinnamon.
A snack? How about homemade granola with yogurt?
Dinner on the run . . . sandwiches sure can be a lifesaver.
However, to our family . . . to one special member in our family . . . grain creates a fog . . . irrationality . . . silent torture.
Except when grain is prepared properly. I have tried my hand at this art . . . this nourishment present since before Jesus.
To see some of the grains that I have fermented please visit the following tutorials:
But to learn from a wise woman . . . I encourage you to join Ann Marie as she teaches a course titled Healthy Whole Grains.
By taking this course, you could easily save $300 a year if you purchase bread at the store (which would more than pay for the course, especially with a promo code . . . like this one: SPROUT20)
That doesn’t even factor in other grains. Do you buy tortilla chips? Crackers? Cookies? Pizza? Store bought pie crust?
You will learn many things from Ann Marie’s class.
I thought I knew a lot, but from reading about her course, I see that I have so much more to learn . . . and with the tools she is going to provide me . . . there is hope that a properly prepared bread may bake in my oven again.
