Some days, we find ourselves craving
the “perfect storm” of fries, pizza, and ice cream
Can the food (DEAD vs LIVE) ~ We eat have a drastic impact on our emotional health?
More specifically – Can a ‘plant protein’-based, Omnivore ‘Brain Health’ Fat Pasture-raised animal (Non-GMO) diet reverse symptoms of depression and improve emotional health?
Also shown was that an unhealthy diet high in GMO, Heat altered (Pasteurization, Roasting of raw nuts & seeds, Industrial Farmed meat( Fed GMO alfalfa, soy & corn) ~ & Factory processed – refined foods ~

Polenta made from whole grain Non-GMO corn also supplies good amounts of iron, thiamin, zinc, phosphorous, and magnesium. Serve up polenta baked, boiled, or grilled as a main or side dish.
A single serving of amaranth has up to seven percent of vitamin C, 42 percent of iron, and 16 percent of calcium needs for the day. Cook amaranth in water or chicken stock with vegetables for dinner. It’s nutty, malty taste also makes it a perfect choice for breakfast when blended with raw nuts, dried Non-GMO fruit, and raw milk.
Farro, also referred to as emmer, is a wheat grain that was one of the first domesticated crops in the Fertile Crescent thousands of years ago and was used in Egyptian bread making. Farro is high in fiber (5 g per serving) and protein (6 g per serving) and provides 20 percent of your daily needs for niacin and 15 percent of your daily needs for magnesium and zinc.
Spelt is an ancient grain that was commonly eaten in medieval times. While it’s part of the wheat family, people with wheat intolerances are often able to eat spelt. A single serving of spelt is high is in fiber (5 g) and protein (6 g), and provides 14 percent of the daily recommended value of magnesium and zinc, and 25 percent of iron.
6. Wheat Berries
A wheat berry is the entire wheat kernel, including the bran, endosperm, and germ, meaning it is a whole grain. Overall, wheat berries are high in fiber and protein and contain a variety of nutrients including vitamin E, calcium, B vitamins, folate, and potassium. Eat wheat berries in place of pasta, rice, and other grains, or use them in salads and side dishes.
They’re also a great alternative to oatmeal when blended with fresh fruit and raw nuts.
Buckwheat groats, also called kasha, are hulled grains from the buckwheat plant often found in Eastern Europe and Russia. Buckwheat is low in fat and offers eight percent of the daily value of niacin, six percent for vitamin B6, four percent for riboflavin and thiamin, 21 percent for magnesium, 12 percent for copper and phosphorous, and 7 percent for iron and zinc. It also contains all essential amino acids, making it a complete protein which helps with muscle-building. Add cooked buckwheat to salads, use it as a side dish, or add fruit and honey for a healthy oatmeal alternative.
Millet is a small, whole grain food that is a staple grain in many Asian and African countries. Whole grains like millet have been associated with protection against cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and some types of cancer, and millet has also been shown to decrease the incidence of stomach ulcers. A cup of millet has just 207 calories, 6 g of protein, and 2 g of fiber. It’s also cholesterol-free and only has 3 mg of sodium per serving.
Millet is also gluten-free.
A form of grain grown in many cultures and is believed to have first been grown in Egypt or Asia, Kamut is two to three times the size of common wheat and has 20-40 percent more protein and 65 percent more amino acids. Kamut is also high in essential fatty acids, which can help lower bad LDL-cholesterol and raise good HDL-cholesterol. It’s a particularly good source for thiamin, niacin, folate, riboflavin, vitamin B6, vitamin E, phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, and complex carbohydrates.
Similar to dried beans, Kamut needs to soak for several hours before cooking.
Once cooked, use it to replace low protein rice in side dishes or use Kamut powder for baking.
Also replace – Highly Carb-dense ~ All purpose-less Flour & all products made from it have up to 50% more “sugar-like)~pasta, pizza crust, Flatzza Sprouted Grain wraps (often GMO corn & wheat) & conventional bread (2 grams of Plant Protein)..
Found in the Andes Mountains of Bolivia, Chile, and Peru, quinoa means “mother grain” in Inca. Quinoa is a complete protein, meaning it has all nine essential amino acids, which have been shown to boost immunity, improve muscle quality, and regulate hormone production. It’s also a great source of high-quality protein (8 g per serving), fiber, and riboflavin, thiamin, and niacin, which help your body metabolize energy. Quinoa provides 20 percent of the iron and phosphorus that you require every day, along with 9 percent of potassium and 2 percent of calcium. A versatile, delicious grain, quinoa can easily substitute for rice and couscous in recipes or serve it with fresh veggies.
Barley is a rich, bulky grain originally from Ethiopia and Southwest Asia. A nutrient-dense food, barley is high in fiber, B vitamins, iron, copper, manganese & selenium. This blend of nutrients has been linked to increased immunity and a more efficient metabolism. Barley is also low in calories and not as starchy as pasta and rice.
Grind the whole barley grain to flour to make bread, muffins, and cookies, stir-fry it with Non-GMO (peeled) vegetables or blend it stews and soups.
