Go Green!

It's St. Patrick Day which is perfecct to have some 'green talk.'

Again, I'm not obsessed with bring a die-hard 'greener.' However, I'm always intrigued and like trying things out once in a while.
Heard of Ezekeil bread? It is based off the following scripture:

Ezekiel 4:9-- "Take also unto thee Wheat, and Barley, and beans, and lentils, and millet, and Spelt, and put them in one vessel, and make bread of it..."

It is hard to believe that so much could go into a loaf of bread--wheat, spelt, rye, barley, millet, lentils, northern beans, kidney beans, and pinto beans.

I gave it a good try for months Sophomore year. It was hard to stand by though for numerous reasons... because it has no preservatives and is so natural, it has to be kept in the fridge and it goes bad fast. In fact, you have to buy it in the frozen food section. It is super dense. In fact, its tiresome to eat a piece. One slice of bread takes 3 times the amount of typical bread chews. One piece goes a long way.

Check these credentials out-- "A complete protein (in the bread) is created that closely parallels the protein found in milk and eggs. In fact, the protein quality is so high, that it is 84.3% as efficient as the highest recognized source of protein, containing all 9 essential amino acids. There are 18 amino acids present in this unique bread – from all vegetable sources – naturally balanced in nature."

Neat, huh?

I've had that bread before. I went through an "organic" phase after living with Jo (remember her?) at Courtney's place in Chathamtown. It didn't last long. But I do remember the bread tasting really good toasted.
