Einkorn Flour Recipes

Einkorn Flour Recipes
In the 1960s the growing and harvesting of wheat changed dramatically to increase production of wheat.  In 1970 Dr. Norman Borlaug even received a Nobel Peace Prize for his discoveries in hybridizing wheat.  It sounded good at the time, but the cost to our health was the price to pay.  This modern harvesting and threshing of wheat became a one-time process, so the wheat would go straight to the granary, making harvesting easier and faster, as well as reducing the cost to the farmer.

But nobody considered the health consequences by short-cutting the process.  There was no time for the wheat to germinate, and the enzymes were not activated, making the wheat difficult to digest.   It all came down to speed and money.   The end result - what we see today in gluten intolerance and many other digestive issues. 

Einkorn wheat is the old-fashioned wheat (not hybridized) and processed the old-fashioned way.  The result, easier to digest and much more nutrient absorption.

It's best to make the switch to Einkorn now, even if you don't believe you have "issues" with regular wheat.  It can take 5 to 10 years for food sensitivities to develop in older people and 20 to 25 years in younger people.   Don't wait until you see a problem, start now and enjoy the healthy wheat!

A Tale of Two Sandalwoods

Sacred Sandalwood is Indian sandalwood that has been used for thousands of years - it was a favorite of Cleopatra.  It was used in Ancient China in a medicinal capacity.  In Tibet it is used during meditation for its ability to calm the mind while remaining alert.  It was over harvested and nearly became extinct, and much of the sandalwood that is sold today is adulterated because of its scarcity. In 1999 original Santalum album seeds were planted in Australia at Young Living's partner farm, Kununurra - 5.2 million trees were planted of genetically pure Indian Sandalwood.  These trees must be at least 15 years old before they can be harvested.

Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood from Hawaii also reached the brink of extinction when a reforestation project was undertaken by Young Living's Organically Certified partner farm in Hawaii, which chose to become a partner farm with Young Living because of Gary Young's commitment to Seed to Seal and sustainable farming.   Royal Hawaiian sandalwood trees are not logged and harvested, but rather they harvest the dead trees because they produce more oil.  Every time a dead tree is harvested new saplings are planted and a blessing is chanted over each one.
