Here is a collection of integral-food recipes that we have found enjoyable! In my kitchen, what matters most is the integrity of an ingredient, not the aesthetic of the product. While palatability is a gift, our palates deceive us sometimes into trading good for tasty. I don't believe integrity grains need defending nor compromise, for they are Truly Good. Receiving them as they are is the fullest blessing to receive from The Word to us in "bread". We've also been deceived into thinking complete equals heavy or bad tasting. These are myths, passed down by the untaught.

The truth is—all the adjectives bakers aim for: fluffy, airy, tender, melt-in-your-mouth, flaky...bread was never supposed to be any of those things. How is using a staff with any of those characteristics in any way wise? Bread is for substance. For fullness. The trading of substance for convenience and pleasure is robbery. Commercial food is poison—offering us mere fragments, fractions of nourishment. Bread isn’t supposed to taste like nothing so it can carry the jam to your mouth. Bread as it should be is satisfying, truly good and able to nourish. This is why bread has gotten a poor representation and is often avoided by the health-conscious--the modern version is mere sugar compared to what bread was made to be.

I prefer to use ancient grains such as barley, spelt, khorasan, emmer and oats. I avoid crops that have been sprayed for harvesting convenience, as this is destructive to the body. We cannot expect it to kill physical bugs and plants, and not kill also the life within our own body. 

I've dropped the "sourdough" label, since this process is true and integral to life. This isn't "sour", it is simply bread. The alternative is unleavened bread.

Truth or Tradition?

 Seven years ago, our family began observing what we call Teshuah . I liked the seven letter word because it filled out my chalkboard calendar nicely. The third week in February, both in 2014 and in 2016, we were delivered out of very difficult situations. The first was a mortgage we couldn't pay for a house we couldn't afford to fix according to HOA standards and a commute we couldn't sustain. We now acknowledge that our difficulties stemmed from idolatry, coveting, and lack of discipline/wisdom. The second, a little house so full of mold that I had not been able to fully breathe in the two years we lived there, ending with a rat in the crawlspace which was only evacuated by a hot water leak that steamed up through a vent straight to the attic, condensing all that water over our belongings, which then molded. Masked, I threw out a massive portion of our baby things, crying and wondering what we should do. He provided. That's what. He moved us to the cape cod on Dellros

Power and Protection

  This morning, as I thanked  יהוה ‎  for His perfect knowledge and order in knitting together the new person within my womb a scripture from Proverbs came to mind: “The Lord by wisdom founded the earth, By understanding He established the heavens.”  Proverbs‬ ‭3‬:‭19‬  Then this morning, the Spirit took me to Jeremiah, & I heard this echo:  “It is He who made the earth by His power, Who established the world by His wisdom; And by His understanding He has stretched out the heavens.”  Jeremiah‬ ‭10‬:‭12‬ ‭‬ As the only One competent and capable of creating the heavens and the earth, designed the human body in its completeness and all life and symbiotic relationships between every living thing, isn’t it preposterous to believe that He should need our supervision ensuring His work is good?  ““Woe to the one who quarrels with his Maker— An earthenware vessel among the vessels of earth! Will the clay say to the potter, ‘What are you doing?’ Or the thing you are making say, ‘He has no ha

food is prophecy.

What if you walked into the market and all you saw was bananas? Or maybe just banana chips? Stale, dried out versions of something once living, sweet but a little like cardboard. Here is what I keep hearing about the Spirit of God. Fresh. Alive. Hydrating. Nourishing. EVERYTHING EVERYONE IS LOOKING FOR. You guys...can we shatter the light show and cut the drama? We do not need to enhance  the incredible richness and glory of God. It doesn't look anything like a show. I have to be brutally honest. If I found myself enhancing  something, I can point at that thing now and tell you it was because I sensed my own lack and felt responsible for it. I've had experiences at churches like walking into a store with only banana chips. At some point, that fruit was attached to a tree somewhere but what I see before me is shelf-stable mimicry. You have to watch out for pockets of people that seem to all be displaying the same kind of fruit that isn't very vibrant. You kind of sense
