Half Assed Raw Nourishment~Rejuvelac

I’m going to tell you about a secret weapon I have. It’s the supreme nourishment for your tummy and filled with good bacteria and probiotic power. See I’m worried about your digestion. Your tummy has all sorts of things going on with it.

The gut is the major area in the body where digestion occurs.  It is also a place that likes to hold onto emotions and blocked energy.  Fear based living, limitations, and living in the past can take a toll on your poor little tummy. Then the real problems can occur.

Also, in a world filled with so much antibiotic use through our food  and thru modern medicine, bad bacteria can easily move into our tummy flora. So it’s important to nourish our gut with good things, including good bacteria.

So along with your spiritual and emotional lightening, I present to you another tool to help in your path of wholeness. Rejuvelac!

Rejuvelac is a fermented beverage that is cheap and easy to make. It is also the starter for any plant based cheeze and yogurt you might want to make.

1. Start with 1/2 cup of wheat berries and soak the grains for 24 hours.  I cover the top of the jar with a papertowel and rubber band. You can use other grains if you want- quinoa, rye, buckwheat, ect. Every 6 hours or so, drain the grains and rinse. Fill the jar back up with grains to continue soaking.

2. After 24 hours, rinse and put the grains in 2 cups of water. Once again cover it with a paper towel and let it sit for 2 days.

3. The water will get cloudy and might smell a bit funky, but it’s all part of the process! Strain the rejevelac off the grains and put the beverage in the fridge for up to a week. You can reuse the grains once more. Skip step one and just soak for a day or two.

I tend to throw the rejevelac into my smoothies.  But as I said, you can use it as a starter for yogurt or cheeze. Recipes on those coming soon!
