Thank you all you readers that have stuck with me as I griped, expounded, pontificated, experimented, made a fool of myself, and wandered off course over the past few years.
I've seen this around some trees, nothing will grow right next to their roots. This is for self-preservation and for natural spacing that makes for a healthier crop or forest.
Sprouting breaks down phytate, a form of phytic acid that normally decreases absorption of vitamins and minerals within the human body.
Ancient peoples sprouted and fermented grains. I don't know how they knew to do this. I don't know how a lot of food preparation got to be, but somehow the idea of sprouting or fermenting got into their cultures.
As I was driving home, my sandwich tucked away so my dog wouldn't get it, I mulled over a conversation my husband and I had last night. At home, before biting into that sandwich I opened the computer and ordered the book my husband had told me about. It was PTSD, Time to Heal by Kathy O'Brian.
Sounds like a good idea.
I'm going to read the book.
Well, that was my morning, except for that input from my publisher.
Who wants to buy a book that isn't touted by Oprah?
I have some work to do.
So, how was your morning?
