GREEN LIGHT for the 3rd Annual TEDx Wilmington Women’s Conference!

Check it out here https://bit.ly/2ON4VBC

Some people were asking where Wilmington is. Wilmington is in the state of Delaware, about 40-50km south west of Philadelphia. This means, it will be a long day of travel to get to the event, which gives me plenty of time to rehearse my talk in my mind. All this is so exciting and nerve wrecking at the same time.

My hope and goal for this event are that my idea worth spreading will touch many people’s lives, provide support for the ailing Earth and truly make a difference for years to come.

Thank you again for all your kind words and support.

Green blessings,

EXCITING NEWS

The other day I received an email from TEDx Wilmington that read: “the TEDxWilmington tribe is delighted to inform you that you have been officially selected from a large pool of applicants to give a TEDx Talk at our 3rd Annual Women’s Conference on Friday, November 30, 2018!”

Even though the event is still pending approval from the TED umbrella organization, I am extremely excited to have been given the opportunity to share my idea worth spreading with a larger audience. I am keeping my fingers crossed that the event will receive the stamp of approval to go ahead very soon. Preparations for this event are intense. In addition to preparing, memorizing and rehearsing the talk, there are different assignments due just about every week. Stay tuned for more information to come…

THANK YOU & WHAT NOW?

A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who joined the public screening of GENERATION ZAPPED! It was amazing to see so many of you, willing to take the time out of your busy schedule.

Thank you also to anyone who helped to promote the event including Homesteader Health and the Health Hut. Your support contributed to the success of the event and I greatly appreciate your community spirit.

The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive despite the fact that the information itself has (understandably) been overwhelming to some.

WHAT’S THE NEXT STEP?

The next step will be different for each one of us, big or small, it does not matter, the most important thing is that you start NOW. For some it maybe getting rid of the smart meter on their house, another person may look into viable alternatives to the wireless baby monitors, simply becoming more conscious about when and how to use a cell phone can make a difference. Some people may begin to start raising awareness through discussions with family, friends and teachers. There are so many different ways and there is no right or wrong. Be conscious of the fact that electromagnetic background radiation impacts our well-being and start making changes NOW. Begin with something that is easily manageable and continue on this path.

Thank you again and as always, green blessings,

Gudrun

CRAVING BREAD BUT NOT ABLE OR ALLOWED TO EAT IT?

Check this out. This is the best bread ever because it is packed with nutrition, extremely fast and easy to prepare and does NOT contain any flowers or gluten. It has become a staple in our life. Try it and spread the wealth of health.

Ancient Grain, Seed, and Nut Loaf
from The Greenhouse Cookbook

Makes one loaf, or about 10 slices.

Ingredients:          

  • ½ cup raw sunflower seeds
  • ¾ cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup raw slivered almonds
  • 1/8 cup buckwheat groats
  • 1/8 cup millet seeds
  • 1/3 cup amaranth seeds
  • 1 ½ cups gluten-free rolled oats
  • ¾ cups gluten-free steel-cut oats
  • 1/3 cup whole flax seeds
  • 1/3 cup psyllium seed husks
  • 1/3 cup chia seeds
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tbs pure maple syrup
  • ¼ cup virgin olive oil
  • 2 ¾ cups filtered water

 Steps:

  1. Preheat your oven to 325 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine and evenly spread the sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, almonds, buckwheat groats, millet seeds, and amaranth seeds on the prepared baking sheet. Toast for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the rolled oats, steel-cut oats, flax seeds, psyllium seed husks, chia seeds, and salt.
  4. When the toasting seed mixture is golden, remove from the oven and add to the bowl of dry ingredients; stir until combined. Add the maple syrup, olive oil, and water to the bowl and mix well. We use our hands for this (wet them first). The mixture should feel quite soggy; the seeds will absorb more water as they rest.
  5. Line the bottom and sides of a 8- x 4-inch or 9- x 5-inch loaf pan with parchment paper. Pour the dough into the pan and shape the top into a smooth dome with wet fingers. Cover the dough with a clean tea towel or napkin and let it sit at room temperature overnight or for up to 24 hours. When you’re ready to bake, preheat the oven to 400 F.
  6. Uncover the dough and place the loaf pan on a rack in the centre of the oven. Bake for an hour and 15 minutes, or until the crust is dark brown and sounds hollow when you knock on it. (It may take an hour and a half, depending on your oven.) Remove loaf from the oven and let cool completely, at least 2 hours.
  7. Slice and serve toasted. Store in a sealed container in the fridge for 1-2 weeks.

SPROUTING PART 2 – HOW TO SPROUT YOUR OWN SEEDS

For an actual demonstration on how to sprout check out my DVD, “Herbal Pharmacy for Everyone” visit http://herbalinstructions.com/

EQUIPMENT REQUIRED

➣ A glass jar, any size from about 1 litre to 4 litres will do; wide mouth jars are the most practical
➣ Nylon mosquito screen, big enough to cover the opening of the jar and rubber band to secure it
➣ Fresh water
➣ Seeds for sprouting
a. I suggest you begin, using only one type of seed per jar. Once you have gained some experience, have fun experimenting, creating your own special mixes.
b. How many seeds to use? As the seeds absorb the water and begin to sprout, they will expand; different seeds will expand to different degrees. For example, radish seeds will expand more than sunflower seeds.

As a rule, fill the jar up to 1-2 cm with dried seeds. Using too few or too many, does not matter. You will learn quickly the proper amounts for the different types of seed you use.

INSTRUCTIONS

1. CLEANING

A. Place seeds in (wide mouth) glass jar; when using larger seeds like peas use more seeds
B. Cover jar with mesh and secure with rubber band
C. Rinse by adding water, swirl and drain

2. SOAKING

A. Add cool water, 5 – 10 cm above seeds and let sit 4 – 8 hours or over-night;
NOTE: The length of time for soaking the seeds depends on the type of seed used; check internet for soaking charts or refer to my next post.
B. Drain water, rinse and drain water again. Seeds should be damp but not “swimming” in water.

3. GROWING

A. Invert and prop jar at an angle in a bowl so that excess water can drain; preferably keep in dark place.
B. Twice a day rinse seeds with cool/room temperature water, swirl jar gently, drain and repeat step 3A.
C. Depending on the seeds, it will take 2 – 5 days for the seeds to sprout to a length of ½ – 5 cm when they are ready to be enjoyed.

4. EATING & STORING

Eat sprouts right away or store them in the fridge in a glass container or plastic bag. Treat them like you would any other food that can spoil.

Meal Suggestions

Sprouts can be added to salads, sandwiches, tacos, wraps, soups (just before serving), spaghetti sauce, omelets, green drinks and baking (1/2 cup of sprouts per loaf; add to liquid ingredients). Sprouted seeds may also be sautéed, blanched or steamed.

Sprouting beans will soften them enough, making them suitable for creating spreads such as hummus.

BE CREATIVE and most of all ENJOY!
