Health ~ Nutrition ~ Grains
are supposed to be the seeds of life, but not if we eat them directly while
they're sealed shut and dormant.
Sprouting can bring forth their true value. The image is from Garden
inspired decor: sprouting wheat for a spring vignette
But instead of this process, we refine grains until they loose all their
We even modify them genetically, into even harder toxic mutants, and it
worsened their negative impact on our health.
We turned life into death
by cheap avarice and ignorance. That fake
convenience caused so many physical and mental problems. Of course you'll
be lazy, hungry and even stupid if you're malnourished and poisoned.
Grains destroy everyone's gut. They affect your whole being and life.
Grains are like cardboard and just plain bad for everyone, even cows and
chickens. Cows are meant to ruminate grass, not grains. Even chickens can’t
fully digest grains, they’re better off with insects. Birds are nature’s
lively insecticide and, instead to be toxic like chemicals are, they’re
tasty! Greens are delicious too, and they’re way more nutritious than
Live greens should be the basics of your diet if you
want to be healthy, not dead grains.
People with the mindset of a killer aren’t going to find solutions
to promote your life. You can’t just kill a life form with a chemical,
insect or weed, and expect the same chemical to spare another’s life...
like humans. Poison is poison. Period.
There ARE solutions that promote life. Instead to use pesticides on crops
and antibiotics on sick caged chicken, why not let them roam free and eat
the insects, instead of grains... That's actually what birds are for in
nature, to preserve balance.
Don’t entrust your life in the hands of people who can’t come
up with the simplest solutions and prefer to use poisons on your food instead.
Dead grains are used so much by those deadly people because they can't spoil,
because there's no life left to spoil... except yours. They want to make
profits, not feed you properly. That's why the industry has been pushing
grains as the best diet, but it isn't! You can’t
renew your living cells with dead ones.
Grains can cause so many problems
It doesn’t even matter which problem you have, your health will get
better if you replace grains by greens, even if you think you don’t
have health problems… yet.
When I decided to stop blaming my body and find out how to eliminate the
cause of my pains, I soon came to the realization that wheat was a problem.
But there was so many possible issues caused by wheat that I didn’t
know which one I had, maybe it was all of them at the same time. But I soon
figured out that it doesn’t matter which wheat
problem you have or not, no one is supposed to eat grains
, not even
cows, they’re made to ruminate greens; and we should too.
- Celiac disease
I didn’t fancy having a camera up my ass to see if I had celiac
disease, too see if the wheat was destroying the villi in my stomach
lining, the microscopic fingers necessary to absorb food, and once they're
gone I'd be unable to absorb the nutrition from any other foods.
- Diabetes and hypoglycemia
The high glycemic index was definitively causing a high blood sugar
followed by a crash; causing both diabetes and hypoglycemia.
- Allergies and sensitivities
But it didn’t explain the stomach pain. Maybe I was allergic to
it, wheat is one of the most common allergen, or have a sensitivity
- Gluten intolerance
Maybe it was only the gluten, but if wheat was hurting me, even if it
was just one element in it, even if it could be removed, I didn't want
to eat something that hurts me at all! You remove that gluten protein,
and process the vitamins and the fibers out... there's nothing left
Wheat is just plain bad for everyone
So it doesn't matter why, the only thing that matters is that I'm
better nourished if I eat vegetables instead, everyone would be. I
feel better physically and mentally.
Replace wheat with greens
I first tried to replace wheat for wheat...
Now I see how pointless and futile that was.
I moved away from refined chemical denatured white bread, with horrible
preservatives, high fructose corn syrup and other horrors, turning it
into a cake at best, but so chemically altered that it’s more like
an object than a food. I found a handmade bread that was so brown that
it looked like a tree, with only 3 ingredients: water, wheat and salt.
But I still had digestion difficulties and other problems.
I believed the mainstream information that you need more fiber, and that
they can only come from grains... So I added wheat germ straight to my
food (not germinated blossoming wheat, just the dry powder). It was supposed
to help with constipation, but it made me more constipated than ever.
I then found out that you need to get enough water or grain fibers will
clog you. But wheat doesn’t have any, vegetables do! They are properly
balanced with fiber, water and nutrition.
Vegetables are the best
source fiber that you can get not grains. And they're also a great source
of calcium, not milk and certainly not soy!
I stopped trying to replace white bread with brown or gluten free (gluten
is wheat’s protein and it’s already worthless enough without
removing it); I just got rid of the problem completely:
Wheat doesn’t have water, it’s the wrong kind of fiber, the
nutrients got bleached out, the protein can't be digested, it destroys
your gut, mess with your blood sugar... and it’s literally like
cardboard! No... cardboard would be an improvement.
You can’t just chew wheat straight from the garden, it’s way
too hard to digest and it will hurt you! Even birds can’t fully
digest grains. But it got even worse since the grains got genetically
modified (GMO) to be hard enough to resist being sprayed
with corrosive chemicals, to kill weeds. Grains
became even harder, way too hard to digest, and laden with poisons…
They even spliced grains with a virus that destroys the gut, quickly in
insects, slowly in bigger creatures like humans.
Nothing matters anymore about grains... they're done for... it's them
or us. I choose me.
Replace grains with greens
I radically trashed the lowest and biggest level of the food pyramid and
replaced it with greens, and then I FINALLY got healthy.
(I first edited that picture for my page Health
~ Weight ~ Obesity. Tomatoes are fruits and
corn is a grain and the WORST of them all; but the image was beautiful
so I used it. Bread, muffins and cakes are exactly the same. They're grains
ad full of sugars.
"Grains are not healthy and they are toxic to
Read more about How
grains are killing you slowly at wellnessmama.)
Thanks to vegetables, I finally got the fibers and water properly balanced
Wheat is worthless and harmful to you, to everyone,
in multiple ways.
Some effects are just more obvious than others. But even the people who
have the worse reactions to grains don't always notice how bad they actually
are. Their body revolt against grains with full blown allergic reactions,
and they still don't notice that grains are the cause, even doctors blame
the person's gut or mind instead... so don't count on them to tell you
what your body knows best.
Why would you want to risk eating something that can destroy the gut…
green vegetables will never do that to anyone. It’s not even good
without spreading jam (sugary paint) on it, but then it merely gets worse.
Subway even adds ingredients used in yoga carpet and shoe soles to fool
you with a better texture...
If shoe soles improve grains, then grains must be freaking bad!!!
I have more in my page Humor
~ Demotivational ~ All funny pictures 3.
Greens satiate hunger better than grains and
give a more stable fuel
Grains are so refined that it's the equivalent of eating sugar with a
spoon. There's nothing better left.
Forget cereals and toast spread with sugar. I eat supper for breakfast;
I finally have the energy to wake up, to do what I need and I’m
never ravenous with cravings.
In the movie “The prince of Egypt” when famine strikes, they
store grains. We are overpopulated, so the food industry tries to feed
the population cheap and even synthetic foods that aren’t nutritious
enough on their own. So why claim that it should be the majority of our
alimentation? Profits. Cheap junk at a high price.
Vegetables seem to cost more because you have to buy them in bulk, but
you can eat feats all week long for a very low price per meal. They stuff
you up good with less; and they take forever to chew, so you can enjoy
eating for HOURS!
The good news is that you don’t need to be rich
to choose quality over quantity; you simply need to make the choice.
Less nutritious food is better than a lot of worthless
You might as well be eating the box with vitamins, it would be better
than eating the cereals in it.
Of course the population will seem stupid for being unable to make wise
decisions, with brains starving for vitamin C and stable blood glucose
(becoming so easier to control for the people who want to exploit them
and sell junk).
Of course children won’t be able to concentrate. Of course kids
will be hysterical and hyper from the massive amount of worthless sugar,
as a filler to use less of the expensive good stuff, and to trick people
into thinking that their product is tasty and nutritive.
But you never need to add sugar to vegetables or fruits; it’s an
insult to the delicious sourness of grapefruits. There is so much more
than cardboard-like grains, discover a whole rainbow
of colorful life forms that candies will never replace.
Forget gluten free. Go grain free!
The gluten problem with grains is very probably the same as the lactose
intolerance in milk: you don't have the enzyme (bacteria) to digest it
yourself, and you couldn't get it from the food because it was destroyed
by heat... on purpose. Bacteria aren't to blame for
diseases, malnutrition is. Bacteria are an important part of food,
digestion and your immune system.
What ignorant humans do to the grains is as much to
blame as the grains themselves. The food wasn't even germinated
into a living birth yet, and they found a way to kill it anyway.
Stop trying to find a way to cling to something
harmful, don't just go gluten free, go grain free! Discover
the delights that you are missing.
I make sautés. I wrap vegetables and meat in seaweed, the nori
sheet for sushi, it's full of trace elements for the nervous system and
thyroid to regulate the whole metabolism. I also use a thin rice sheet;
all I taste is the rainbow of raw vegetables and meat that it holds. It's
so flavorful that I'm thankful that I got sick enough to wake up!
Gluten inflates like a hot air balloon, in bread, but also in your gut
and looks. It bloats people and stretches their stomach into wanting to
eat more than they need to be healthy and happy, but they have to overeat
worthless grains as their bodies desperately tries to get enough nutrition,
pushing people with cravings to survive... if only people didn't go for
the wrong things...
It's not calories that counts, it's nutrition.
There’s so much sugar in grain products that it overfeeds your natural
internal yeast, and the industries also add it to the bread. That's how
you get a yeast infection; you're like a rotting corpse being cleaned
up, because you ate dead acidic foods and are dying inside.
Eat juicy live foods, the way vegetables are, they’re alkaline and
can balance acidic meats. I will never claim that we should stop eating
meat to eat vegetables instead, you don't have to choose between two good
things, you simply need both!
But grains are bad. Period. At least try to stop eating the cardboard
grains and sand-like sugars… and see for yourself how much better
you can actually feel. You don’t need grains,
they hurt you. So choose a better staple food for yourself than
what you’re told, better than what makes the worthless cheap industries
happy… find what truly makes YOUR body happy.
I got some information from Why
do so many people think they need gluten-free foods? at slate.
To answer the question, it’s because people are sick from the so
called healthy food recommendations. Blaming a part of wheat that you
can remove allowed them to stay in denial and avoid change. But the whole
grain is bad; it’s not good enough as a staple food, especially
when you compare it to how nutritious, balancing and detoxifying vegetables
are. But what is removed and added to grains makes it even more worthless
Absolutely everything about grains is bad:
- Genetically modified to be too hardy to digest and to secrete gut
- Grown sprayed with poisons
- The nutrition has been processed and bleached out completely worthless
- Laden with sugars causing diabetes, hypoglycemia, obesity and mental
- Brain and body problems from the nutritional deficiencies too
- Loaded like a gun with other synthetic horrors… such as preservative,
which doesn't preserve life, it's just one more poison to kill small
organism that might eat the food before you. To destroy happily growing
mold, but it also does it to children and everyone else.
Everything about the whole grain industry is bad. There’s NOTHING
healthy about it.
IF grains ever were healthy, they are not anymore! For
Except of course the people getting rich from them, as
long as they don’t eat them.
Here's some quotes from the page:
"Grain shortage dramatically lowered the death rate among children
with the Celiac disease disorder from 35% to zero." That’s more
"Only a small fraction of people have been properly diagnosed with
Celiac disease… some patients are incorrectly labeled as having irritable
bowel syndrome, eating disorders, or dietary vitamin deficiency… and
even severe autism."
"There are certainly people who have a problem with gluten that’s
not autoimmune or allergic."
You don't have to be allergic or sensitive to something for it to be harmful.
You can't survive on eating cardboard boxes. It will feel wrong, hurt your
gut, and your brain won't be able to function. Adding sugar so the brain
won't radically shut down, and trying to put back the vitamins lost in the
process with synthetic imitations that the body can't absorb... it's futile.
The brain and your whole body need vitamin C.
For the B vitamins, I eat eggs and natural supplements. I never tried to
germinate wheat so that it can become juicy greens; but dead grains won't
give you a healthy life.
Corn is the worst grain
Corn used to be called maize and treated with lime to bring out its nutrition.
Neglecting this vital process proved to be so unhealthy that it's DEADLY.
at wikipedia: "in addition to providing a source of dietary calcium,
the lime reacts with the corn so that the nutrient niacin can be assimilated
by the digestive tract"
Also from Wisdom
from the Past: Nixtamalization of Corn
"Corn was introduced in Africa without nixtamalization. Because it
became a staple food for many, it caused many nutritional deficiencies.
When corn is nixtamalized, it released the vital nutrient B3. This prevents
the painful disorder, pellagra. Pellagra makes you develop sore skin and
mouths, makes you thin, listless and could cause depression, hallucinations,
irritability, and other mental disorders. In reality, Pellagra can and has
ruined many lives."
It still does, now society is simply blind to the causes and tries to cover
up the symptoms with even more dangerous drugs than the problem itself.
The first American colonials also got sick and were rescued by the natives…
and the mistake is happening all over again! They skip this important step
to maximize profits of course; they don’t care if they feed you the
nutritional equivalent of Styrofoam. Forget brands. Make your own food without
worthless fillers like wheat, soy and corn. Being sick is a bigger waste
of time and money... and lives.
It's prone to mold and they use contaminated crops anyway.
High fructose corn syrup is a complete abomination! It's not the same as
glucose. Fructose is a poison.
Watch the YouTube video by Robert H. Lustig, M.D.
The Bitter Truth
. He demonstrates the cause of obesity. That
it's not being lazy and gluttonous because we have an epidemic of obese
babies! Fructose is a poison all by itself and removing fiber and fat and
boosting carbs and sugar wasn't a cure for heart disease but a unmitigated
disaster on health.
Grains are bad, but their concentrated syrup is awful. Using it to replace
anything good in our food supply is causing so many expensive health crisis.
It happened because it's cheap for our wallet but also cheap nourishment
for our health. So it's actually very expensive if we have to pay if with
our quality of life, that’s no way to make it more convenient! And
if we also consider the nutritive value, it’s expensive
to pay anything at all for something completely empty and toxic!
But we blame the good stuff for the problems caused by the junk, to shift
the blame, so that the industries that are destroying us all, the whole
country from within, can keep making profits with overpriced garbage...
addicting us with sugars that are over-refined and hammering our brains
just like cocaine, both deadly white powders. Making people ravenous for
more, as their body desperately tries to find nutrition is things that only
It's not fat that makes people obese, it's toxins and GRAINS!!!

How To Eat Grains
. Written by Kristen
at Food Renegade. I'm going to quote the whole article
because she does such a great work:
How to eat grains
think it’d be simple. Eating grains is as old as… well, agriculture.
But within the last century the industrialized grains we eat have become
quite perverted. Refined flours have weaseled their way into just about
every baked good: breads, cereals, crackers, desserts, you name it. But
even whole grains, the so-called “healthy” alternative, are
dangerously devoid of nutrients thanks to our modern methods of grain preparation.
In tight economic times, you want to squeeze every bit of nutrition out
of your food as you possibly can. So, if you eat grains, consider this your
guide to preparing them in the most nutritious way.
We all know that refined grains are bad for us. In the refining process,
the bran and germ are removed from the whole grain, hence removing the fiber
and most of the vitamins and minerals. Then the grains are further processed
via mixing, bleaching, and brominating. Then, because poor people who switched
to eating refined grain products started suffering from severe vitamin and
mineral deficiencies, we now “enrich” the refined flour with
synthetic vitamins and minerals. These synthetic nutrients can be hard
on your liver
(See her other article Your
liver: understanding the keys to health
). Even if they were substantially
equivalent to naturally occurring vitamins and minerals (which I don’t
believe!), the vitamin and mineral content artificially added back into
enriched flours still does not measure up to the amount inherent in whole
Without question, whole grains are nutritionally superior to refined grains.
But, they can be even more nutrient dense if your prepare them according
to traditional grain preparation techniques.
What are traditional grain preparation techniques?
Why should you care?
This is when the whole grain kernel is sprouted. You can eat it as is,
or you can dry it again before grinding it into flour.
This is when the already milled whole grain flour is soaked in
an acidic medium like buttermilk, whey, yogurt, lemon juice, or vinegar
before being cooked.
This is when the grain is naturally fermented with wild yeast,
as is the case with all sourdough breads.
We can’t blame our parents or our grand parent’s generation
for falling in love with convenience. Modern science promised to revolutionize
our lives, reduce the amount of time and energy it took us to perform tasks,
and give us more time to do the things we really enjoy. It also revolutionized
our food, dramatically reducing the time we spent in the kitchen preparing
But this convenience came at a cost. We lost many wonderful food traditions
as Grandmas raved about frozen pizzas and stopped cooking from scratch.
We stopped eating meals together around a table, instead opting for fast
food on the go. And the traditional food preparation techniques that had
nourished us for thousands of years fell victim to the efficiency of industrialization.
Now, instead of capturing wild yeast from the air through the long process
of sourdough fermentation, we had quick rising baker’s yeast. And
instead of soaking our whole grain flour in buttermilk overnight to produce
wonderfully light and fluffy buttermilk pancakes in the morning, we could
use a baking mix containing white flour and chemical leavening agents to
achieve the same effect.
So what? How does this affect the food’s nutrition?
Grains are essentially the seeds of domesticated grasses. Seeds are meant
to do one thing: propagate their species. They are built with multiple layers
of protection in order to pass through the digestive systems of animals
unharmed so that they can grow in a new place where the animals deposited
them. Granted, we have a fairly acidic digestive tract when compared to
your average chicken, so we do a better job at breaking down the grains.
But grains are still hard on our digestive systems,
and we don’t digest any grain completely. Undigested
particles of grain get stuck in the microvilli of our intestinal walls,
building up with time, and ultimately undermining our ability to properly
digest other foods because of this interference
If the interference becomes extreme, a host of intestinal and auto-immune
disorders can result including:
((Grains harms EVERYONE and it can happen to ANYONE.
On top of all this, we have to battle phytic acid
the enzyme inhibitor present in grains that locks up all the minerals and
vitamins until the seed is ready to germinate. When that phytic acid gets
loose in our own guts, it binds with the vitamins
and minerals present and keeps us from absorbing
. This can lead to a host of systemic problems, most notably
It turns out that traditional grain preparation techniques solved these
whole grain flour in an acidic medium
overnight neutralizes the phytic acid by activating phytase, an enzyme present
in the grain which breaks down the phytic acid, rendering the grain easier
for us to digest.
whole grain flour also neutralizes
the phytic acid and does an even more thorough job breaking the grain down
— to the point that many who suffer from gluten intolerance have no
trouble eating traditionally prepared sourdough bread!
grains not only neutralizes the phytic
acid, but also radically increases the nutrients present. This is because
the grain has essentially been turned into a vegetable. When comparing sprouted
wheat to unsprouted wheat on a calorie-per-calorie basis, the sprouted wheat
How to eat grains
- 4 times the amount of niacin (vitamin B3:
the deficiency causes pellagra, characterized by skin changes, severe
nerve dysfunction, mental symptoms, and diarrhea)
- Nearly twice the amount of vitamin B6 and folate
- 5 times the amount of vitamin C
- Significantly more protein and fewer starches and
If you’re going to eat grains, you should really make sure they are
For many recipes, this consists of making a few minor and easy adaptations.
For example, you can soak your rolled oats overnight
before adding water and cooking in the morning. This is
how traditional cultures have always prepared their porridge, and it only
takes a few extra minutes in addition to a little planning to eat this instead
of quick cooking instant oatmeal. You can also do this with your breakfast
quick breads like pancakes and biscuits simply by soaking
the whole wheat flour in buttermilk overnight
before adding the rest
of the recipe’s ingredients and cooking in the morning.
Making traditional sourdough is something I have not ever attempted, although
I’d love to try. I typically buy my sourdough from a local bakery
that cooks it up the old-fashioned way. (Note: Most sourdough bread available
at your grocery store is not traditionally prepared. It is your typical
commercial yeast bread that includes something sour tasting. If
“yeast” is listed as an ingredient, it’s not a real sourdough.
If you’d like to try making your own sourdough
, you can find listings for sourdough starters on my Resources
Perhaps the easiest way to adapt to eating healthier grains is to simply
substitute sprouted grain flour for your typical whole
. If you have a grain grinder, you can sprout the grain
yourself, dry it, and grind it into fresh flour. (This is what I do whenever
I occasionally eat grains.) Or, if you don’t have a grinder, you can
buy sprouted grain flour online. Again, you can find listings for sprouted
grain flour on my Resources Page: Flours,
Grains & Legumes

Thank you, Kristen
, for this great article. I don't miss grains though,
but I could try something else to sprout~
The wisdom of the past is lost and completely ignored. The industry dismiss
vital technique because all they care about is numbers in their bank account,
they use machines instead of bread bakers with a brain. And doctors only
care about making money with drugs; they can't patent vitamins and minerals
to get rich, because they belong to everyone. So they dismiss them as the
cause of physical and mental diseases.
Your health is in your own hands. Make sure it is.
