Sourdough Course: Goodness Gracious Grains!

So many health paradigms are turning people against grains. It's no wonder, as they can cause havoc on our gut and immune system. But properly prepared grains. . .well that's another story. Learn to prepare grains in a gracious manner that turns a foe into a friend. 

Organic spelt sourdough bread


Sourdough is an ancient practicing of soaking/ culturing/ fermenting, making the grains become friendly for you. The phytic acid (membrane around grain) around is an anti-nutrient that inhibits the absorption of the nutrients and minerals that grains offer us. Nature's miracle, traditional sourdough and soaking, not only lowers the gluten, but also makes the vitamins and minerals absorb-able for you.


See an excellent resource chart for soaking grains/ seeds/ nuts.

Want to re-think grains?  Ready to begin a weekly rhythm of breaking bread for your family? (Side note: I never thought I would be baking bread. . I just wasn't that person.  I still chuckle when I pull out a steaming loaf of fresh bread from the oven). You can! I am a testimony of re-friending grains in a good and gracious manner.
