There are thousands of people looking up Ezekiel Grain Bread, but very little searches out there for sprouted grains. All grains and beans should be fermented or sprouted.
Most cultures throughout history sprout or ferment their grains. It’s a lost art in this world of fast and quick. Although inexpensive, it can be difficult because of the processes food go through to get to the shelves.
Organic beans and grains are the best to work with. It’s actually pretty easy if you want to do yourself. See here.
Sprouting grains increases it’s digestability and it’s vitamin content. Ever hear someone say that beans are hard to digest and cause a lot of “wind”? Yup, that’s the protective elements of the bean- the phytonutrients. When we eat phytonutrients they actually deplete our body from essential vitamins and minerals, and tax our bodies with the extra work of digestion.
All grains should be sprouted or fermented, but who has the time? It is a lot of work and for years we only ate beans or oatmeal once every few weeks cause I just didn’t have meal planning for three days ahead of time with a toddler and a newborn. Then I found To Your Health Sprouted Grain Company.
This company does all the work for you! Expensive you say! NOPE! For $1-2 a pound you can get oatmeal, corn, grits, navy beans, black beans and more shipped to your door. And they’ve started having monthly specials. You’re welcome.
I save $20 a month for bulk orders and then buy a ton of each. I usually only ship about every six months and we eat beans and oatmeal about 2-3x a week. They are great fillers for stretching out the budget and trust me, they way you’ll feel: you’ll never be able to eat regular beans again.
