It is important to Understand the ‘Dangers of GMO’ ~ Food to feed the word’??

GMO makes the ‘food’ ~ Junk or ‘CARNIVAL’ FOOD ~ No longer nourishes CNS, hair follicles, brain, joints ~ Baldness, wheat belly, joint replacements, memory disease, arthritis, etc ~ become the order of the day!@ the same rate Makes GMO

ITALIAN RENAISSANCE ~ Dairy from ‘Pastured’ (Free Range) cows with ‘LIVE Beneficial Bacteria’ ~ Not Dead Bacteria from Pasteurization ~ Not stressed to Market (Cortisol Factory) & Cows NOT Fed GMO ALFALFA or GMO (Corn or Soy) ~

The Italians made the biggest variety of cuisines in Europe at that time ~ FOODS IN 15TH CENTURY – REAL NOT FAKE MODERN FOOD!

(CREATIVITY from eating Ancient Grain FARRO – Not Over-Milled 10 or more grams of Plant Protein. Modern Milling only leaves 2 or 4 grams of Plant Protein ~ MORE THAN IS ‘PRESCRIBED’- UNETHICAL! or (Emmer/Italian Rice) or (Spelt in Western Culture) ~

For their fabulous cheeses Real Unaltered foods ~ ended up paying off for them, though. Most people considered the Italians to have the “best cuisines’ in the world ~ Which is still considered today & polls show that Italian cuisine is still one of the most eaten and popular cuisines in the world. 

However ~MODERN “AMERICAN” Italian ~

Raw Milk Cheese ~Unlocking France’s Secrets To Safer Raw Milk Cheese

But in France, raw milk cheese is a very big deal, long considered safe and revered for its flavor.

The country cultivates its 350-plus cheeses — many of which are made with raw milk — like children, claiming that the bacteria in the raw milk impart unique characteristics – grassy, metallic, buttery ~

In recent years, America, England and Australia have discovered the pleasures of making their own farmhouse cheeses with RAW milk (with live Beneficial Bacteria),

but it seems the French still have some secrets.

In fact, French scientists seem to have figured out

the ‘Holy Grail’ of raw ‘PASTURE-RAISED’ milk cheese: how to make it safer…

And a lot of how they do it comes down to how to use good bacteria to battle the bad ones.

Learning those French secrets could help cheesemakers in the Anglophone world make safer and more delicious cheese, says Bronwen Percival,

US GMO fed-Factory farmed dairy(Putrid) vs European Dairy Non-GMO..

Posted by: SareWeatheron Apr 7, 15 at 3:30pm…Posted in: Europe

‘I thought I was “lactose Intolerant” my entire life!

I became very sick when I eat dairy in the United States, only to find this out when I went backpacking through Europe in College and never once got sick…I came home and once again very sick so I completely cut dairy out of my diet like before.

Two and a half years later I moved to England to get my Master’s degree and again never once got sick. I was so excited I had milk with my cereal, ice cream, cheese! You name a dairy product and I probably tried it and I felt great!

I backpacked again this last fall through eastern Europe and again felt great and was having dairy regularly.

I have recently moved back to the US & I am getting ill again. I cannot eat dairy at all and have again cut it out of my diet completely.

I’ve been to the allergist and they tell me I am a mystery! I read a very old forum about people that possibly had similar experiences, did anyone ever get an answer….

is it possibly something to do with how the milk is treated? in the UK the vast majority of milk is pasteurized ~ ditto cream and cheese ~

CREATING a Load of DEAD BACTERIA, SATURATED WITH ‘CORTISOL’ ~ STRESS from the inhumane methods of Modern Farming (for shelf life $$)

& FED WITH GMO ALFALA – likely NOT pastured

~How is it treated in the US? I seem to remember that it was homogenized i.e. the cream was distributed through the milk. I wonder if that’s got anything to do with it.

Overall, Italians really loved their cuisine during the Renaissance,  which is eaten today all over the world ~

(EXCEPT AMERICAN ‘GMO,’ & Heat Altered & Over-Milled


Conclusion ~

The cuisines in Southern Italy during the Renaissance were quite basic, yet very delicious. & SUPPORTED CREATIVITY, IMPULSE CONTROL & THE OTHER PREFRONTAL EXECUTIVE BRAIN FUNCTIONS & Immune system!!!

The southern Italians loved to use a small number of ingredients while perfecting the best dishes in Europe.

There were a lot of cuisines with similar ingredients, but just enough differences to make it unique to Southern Italy.

were important, which were used a lot in snacks and desserts, such as parfaits.

SOAKED Beans (PLANT PROTEIN) were used extensively in soups and side dishes.

Italians used simple, basic ingredients while making an authentic cuisine.

Of course, meatballs …(PASTURED, relaxed, Happy hormones ~NOT FROM INDUSTRIAL TRUCKED TO MARKET STRESSED  (Adrenalin & Cortisol) & Fed GMO Alfalfa, SOY or Corn & growing bacteria in meat cases-that remains on the meat after cooking)  & were also eaten in Italy, but were quite smaller than here in America.

Meat Basic Ingredients Cont.

Oils ~ Cold-pressed ~Omega 3&  not ‘heat altered motor-like’ oils) ~Most oils (especially EV Olive oil ~ HAVE A LOW SMOKING POINT & Becomes “motor-like” oil very quickly.

Herbs, and spices were used in almost every dish during the Renaissance in order to season it up and make it taste better.

Olive oil  (low smoking point) was the main oil that Italians used for Cold Applications ~ It was used to cook ~ .(Virgin coconut oil holds up better when heated)  but also had good flavor to drizzle on top of certain dishes.

The bottom line for cheesemakers is that the information in the French manual will add to that discussion. “The cheese community is like, OK, we want access to the best practices … and it really just hasn’t been available,” Dutton says. We want the translation “so we don’t have to reinvent the wheel.”

Food in the 15th Century

Alist of foods that would have been available in Europe in the late 15th Century.


For peasants, it was most often dark, coarse & made from wheat mixed with rye or oatmeal. Fry-breads were popular on market days and at fairs~

Biscuits, scones & cakes sweetened with honey~


On most lists of provisions, ale and beer are second only to bread. Water was often unsafe and ale/beer could comprise up to 20% of a peasants caloric intake.


Is one of the most common and basic of dishes. May – or may not contain meat. It is a thick stew that could contain any or most of the following: cabbage, onions, oatmeal, beans, peas, bread crumbs, or virtually any other types of grains or vegetables. Resources (economic and otherwise) determined the quantity and quality of ingredients.

Grains (Soaked to remove lectins & seed locks that cause disease)

Farro-Emmer Rice, barley, wheat, rye, oatmeal, maislin (wheat/rye mix)


Pasture-Raised Butter, 1st press EV Olive Oil

White ‘Pasture-raised’  Meats

Cream, cheese, milk, butter


Vibrant trade in wine. Often watered down. French wine was popular.

Beans (Soaked to remove lectins & seed locks that cause disease)

Garbanzo, fava, white

 ‘Pasture-raised’ Meat

Bacon, beef, chicken, fish, pork, sausages, wild game (in some areas), rabbits, mutton

Other Common Drinks

Mead, cider,  ‘Pasture-raised milk (usually reserved for the old or infirm)


Not Over-Milled – Plant protein intact Bread,  ‘Pasture-raised cheese, Non-GMO fed Corn, Soy or Alfalfa-fed Eggs, raw (not processed) honey, mustard

Fruits (Peeled)/Nuts (soaked)~

Almonds, asparagus, chestnuts, currants, dates, figs, pinolas, prunes, raisins, walnuts, apples, apricots, cherries, grapes, melon, pears, plums, pomegranates, strawberries, raspberries, lemons, oranges, gooseberries

Vegetables (peeled) 

Cabbage, carrots, cress, leeks, lettuce, mushrooms, onions, parsnips, turnips, peas, radishes, spinach, winter squash, beets, eggplant, olives, rutabagas, cucumbers, artichokes, celery

It is interesting to note that while corn (maize) is a product of the “New World” and as such is not to be found on the above list, the word “corn” was known and used to mean any cereal crops such as wheat, rye, oats and barley. The association of the word “corn” with the grain maize is a relatively new development of the last 400 years.

Notably absent are potatoes and tomatoes. These are once again both New World crops and though known later than 1495, they were considered poisonous.
