Sometimes we’re not ready for change, even when we know it is good for us. 🙂 I could say this about so many things in my life right now.
Months ago I purchased a book I’ve known would help our family: Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon and Mary Enig. I’d known about it for a few years…just started using it recently. Reading it along side Wild Fermentation: The Flavor Nutrition, and Craft of Live-Culture Foods by Sandor Ellix Katz and Sally, and The Body Ecology Diet: Recovering Your Health and Rebuilding Your Immunity by Donna Gates.
Perhaps, reading them all at the same time and skipping around to read by topic, may not be the most efficient way to understand, but they all seem to cross-over eachother and it has been helpful to simply follow the trail…
On our great breakfast quest, we’ve been enjoying some of Nourishing Traditions recipes, including this adaptation:
kamut over-night waffles
2 1/2 cups freshly ground kamut
2 cups greek yogurt
1/2 cup whey
4 tbs maple syrup
4 tbs melted butter
1 tsp sea salt
- The night before: soak kamut flour in yogurt & whey in a large bowl and cover. Leave in a warm place for 12-24 hours
- Stir in remaining ingredients while warming cast iron waffle maker
- Spoon batter on iron and spread the best you can.
- Cook for 3 minutes on each side
Waffles are pretty thick and won’t get crispy like modern waffles unless you cook even longer or using higher heat. Because it takes so long to cook, I keep waffles warm in the oven while waiting to have enough cooked to serve. Add fruit, cream, butter, nuts, etc. on top and enjoy. Seriously thick, I only eat one :).
How about you? Are you starting anything this year, that your heart-strings/conscience/etc. have been tugging on you for a while to try? Is it easy for you or do you struggle at times like I do? Here’s to change! xo ~ katrina
That book has CHANGED our lives. it makes sooooo much sense to us and our health has improved. How fun that you are starting to implement some things too. Happy soaking!!!
Awesome! I remember now reading something on your blog about recipes and realizing we were on the same path…I’m totally going to email you if I have questions. luv you Julie!
I got the book for Christmas and just started reading it. Love the information in it. I am going to have to check out the other two books you are reading.
Totally agree…sometimes I get lost just reading all the quotes, studies and finds in the margins…love it. Tell me what you try and like…we made kimchi and pineapple chutney this morning…I’ll let you know how they turn out. 🙂
