Win An Enrollment In The Healthy Whole Grains Class

In the current renegade nutrition climate, “Healthy, Whole Grains” often seems like an oxymoron. We owe that to the rise of gluten intolerance as well as the number of people who find improved health through ditching grains altogether. Yet, many traditional food cultures around the world have successfully incorporated grains into their diets without any ill effects at all. These people remain just as robust as ever, just as free of diabetes, obesity, and heart disease. How is this even possible?

I think of grain-free diets the same way that I think of a high raw food diet — helpful for particular kinds of healing, but not the be-all-end-all-diet-for-optimum-health. In other words, some people with particular kinds of hormonal imbalances or damaged gut flora will benefit greatly from removing grains from their diet altogether. But, as most people on the grain-free GAPS Diet have found, these same people can return to eating properly prepared grains once they’ve effectively been healed.

The key words here are “properly prepared” — grains that are prepared via sprouting or fermentation (like a traditional sourdough).

That level of preparation can be intimidating. It’s virtually impossible to find grains prepared this way in your local supermarket. Most so-called sourdoughs are just commercially prepared yeast breads with a bit of sour-tasting starter thrown in. And while sprouted grain sandwich bread is available in many places (thanks to Ezekiel brand and Alvarado Street Bakery), good luck finding sprouted grain tortillas, bagels, or English muffins. So, if you want to introduce these properly prepared grains into your diet, you’re likely looking at learning how to prepare them all from scratch at home.

That’s why I’m so pleased to introduce you to Ann Marie of Cheeselave‘s latest e-course on how to prepare Healthy, Whole Grains.

In her upcoming e-course, students will receive more than 100 tried and true recipes using properly prepared grains. You’ll learn how to make a perfect pie crust, no-knead bread, and sourdough pancakes (and so much more).

Featuring more than 50 video tutorials, the e-course will be like having a tutor right in your own kitchen, showing you the tips and tricks you need to be successful. No more trial and error. No more sourdough flops. No more wasting tons of expensive ingredients trying to master the art of baking with properly prepared grains.

    This is one of those areas where you don’t know, what you don’t know and after the introductory video, I realize there is a lot I do not know and need to learn.

    Some friends and I were just discussing grains and their impact on our health. I was explaining a bit about sprouting and soaking, but really don’t know much other than the theory behind it! Would love to take the class.

    I would like to take this course because I am relatively new to the world of whole/living food. I am a little lost and my sourdoughs are not coming out real great. I would love to be able to understand how to work with grains in a way that it is manageable, simple and healthy for me and my son. I am a single working mother. Convienience, quantity and edibility is definitely a factor when feeding a teenaged son! He is overweight even though he is pretty active and eats well (not too much soda, sugar, etc) But I think all the refined stuff will only make his health worse! I’ve been eating this way but getting him to eat like I do is quite a task. As close as I can get to making things he’s used to but that are whole and healthy, the better for both of us! So many times I bumble around my kitchen, just wishing there was someone who could show me how so much of this is done. As much as I love learning the hands-on, trial and error way, it would make life quite a bit easier.

    Getting started switching my family over to a traditional diet. I’ve replaced all the fat in my house with butter, olive oil, lard, coconut oil – nothing but natural fats for us! This is the next step and having someone walk me through it on video couldn’t be more exciting! Hope I win!

    My husband and I have been improving our diet as we educate ourselves on traditional foods and how to prepare them, but grains are still something we struggle with. I have no idea how to soak grains, and am intimidated by it, so this would be the perfect opportunity to learn!

    I am interested in this course because my son is gluten intolerant and might be able to benefit by some of this. The rest of us are not gluten intolerant, as far as I know, but it would benefit me to know the best ways to prepare grains for easy digestion.

    Ohhh. This is just what I’ve been seeking. I definitely could use this course about now. I do sprout some grains, but really don’t know what I’m doing. More importantly, I am caring for my 86 year old mom and am doing my best to have the cleanest, freshest, healthiest foods to keep her going strong. Pick me, pick me! Thanks.

    I am so exicted about this course! I have been totally intimidated by making sourdough bread and working with sprouted grains for some reason. I’ve jumped into bone broths, yogurt and kefir with no problems but I’ve put off sprouted grains. This is just what I need to get me over the hump.

  34. Amy

    This sounds absolutely amazing, but even with the heavy discount I can’t afford it. Hope I win!! I have bought some sprouted flours but they are just too expensive to buy all the time, so I would love to know more about doing things myself, at home. Thanks for a chance of winning this great course!

    I am new to traditional eating after a year of only eating ‘clean’ (being an ingredient Nazi). I just didn’t ever think about WHERE my food was coming from or WHY I should prepare foods a certain way. I am starting to buy certain items organic and trying to incorporate grass fed meat in our diet. In addition to those changes, I would love to learn how to prepare bread traditionally. Being a stay at home mom of two beautiful little girls makes the enrollment fee more than what I can afford. Would love to win!

    February 2, 2012 | 4:13 pm

    My son and I are both gluten intolerant – not celiacs and we don’t even register as allergic when tested, but we are definitely intolerant. I have lots of GI issues in terms of absorption and food intolerance that I would love to better understand. A course like this might help me ease my family back into REAL whole grains in our diet, which would be wonderful (I can taste the sourdough bread now….). I am also expecting another child in 6 weeks and this might just be the kind of manageable, brain food that a person otherwise consumed with caring for others needs!

  48. Laura
    February 2, 2012 | 4:20 pm

    I have a few recipes under my belt that include soaking whole grains, but I would love to win this e-course so that I can learn how to modify other recipes for soaking and/or sprouting. thanks!

    After learning some of the dirty secrets behind our national food industry, I have changed to a “clean” way of eating and learning how to make products with sprouted grain would be AWESOME!!! I get so irritated going through the market trying to find SOMETHING good for my family to eat amidst the preservatives, ‘cides, steroids, etc. It shouldn’t be that way! Even though I am learning more about the food industry so that I can be a part of “The Revolution”, learning this skill will at least help me make a difference in the life of my family.

    I would enjoy taking this class since I have been gluten intolerant/sensitive. I want to see if I can reintroduce properly prepared grains into our diet. My son really wants a loaf of bread! I did do sourdough before and we seemed to tolerate that, but I couldn’t keep up with it. I’d love to see how one manages the grains in a traditional diet (which we have been following, sans gluten grains, for almost 8 years now). Thanks for this opportunity!

    I am a holistic health coach. Many of my friends and clients have either gluten intolerance, celiac, cancer, or autism so are on a GF diet. The question about grains always comes up: which are best, which to avoid, etc. I would love to learn more from an expert on grains and health so that I could pass that information along and help more people in my community.

  87. Mandy
    February 2, 2012 | 7:49 pm

    This is quite a timely course for me! I have been in the process of transitioning my family to eating real foods for a few months now. Just a couple of days ago I was contemplating my envelope of sourdough starter and trying to talk myself into ‘just doing it’. Properly preparing grains has been on the list, but I’ve been intimidated to head down that path… not sure why, especially since it is so essential to good health if you want to continue eating grains (a nice hot piece of sourdough toast dripping with Kerrygold butter? Of course we want to keep eating grains! We aren’t ‘paleo purist’ material). I am ready to finally take a step in the right direction here!!

    I want to learn how to prepare grains for my family – the task seems overwhelming. I think taking the course would help me see how to add this step into our already busy schedule. I have noticed some of my family members (including myself) seem to have trouble with refined grains, esp. I want to make sure what we are eating is nutritious and not detrimental to our health.

  95. nicole

    Once I transition off GAPS I need to know how to properly prepare my grains. Also I am starting a family. I just went into my 3rd trimester taking the beautiful babies course. I want the best for my child. No vaccines with a healthy diet. I could really use this addition :)

    Hi! What a fantastic opportunity :) I am thoroughly loving gaining more and more knowledge on how to provide my family of seven the most nutritious and complete meals I possibly can – food renegade.com has been so instrumental in helping me on this journey. I now bake our own souurdough bread and try to add many and varied cultured and fermented foods into our diets also. Apart from our sourdough, grains have been one of my greatest concerns on this journey as two of my children have in the past displayed varying intolerances to many un-properly prepared grain foods, and although I’m convinced it is simply due to the preparation, I am too unsure of exactly what I should be doing to help elimate preparation as one of the causes (and I know that correctly prepared grains would be most beneficial for all of our family members regardless!). Thank you again for this opportunity and I have my fingers crossed!

    My husband and I have made lots of healthy changes in our eating habits by incorporating more real whole foods, but grains have been reduced to rare, special occasions. Since our health food stores are quite far away, I would love to be able to prepare things at home and not be intimidated by the learning curve. The online course looks like a great way to get into the process and not be completely overwhelmed. Thanks for the course.

    I have been primarily grain-free for a couple of years because my husband had blood sugar issues. Now he is much better and I want to bring properly prepared grains back into our diet. I have been enjoying AnnMarie’s blog and would love to win her e-course!

    I have been working on properly prepared grains for several years, and while some of it was very easy for me to “pick up”…I have always had trouble with bread. I would love to stop buying sprouted grain bread from the store because I could make my own that didn’t crumble into a million pieces….my husband would be eternally grateful as well!!

    I have been trying off and on for years to get my family on a healthier diet. It’s hard to learn all there is to know by yourself. This course would put so much information and instruction in one place, right at my finger tips.

  117. Roxanne

    I have been very interested in how to properly prepare whole grains for a while.

Thanks for offering this class!

  132. Pat Atkinson - Tibbetts
    February 3, 2012 | 9:56 am

    Wheat / gluten intolerances seem to be common in my family, but I feel they miss out on some of the enjoyable foods; consequently I am constantly on the look-out for ways to enhance their meals. As you say to go completely all out on any particular way of eating would probably not be the best way forward, so I am hoping that watching the Videos and reading the instructions on sprouting will give me the opportunity to learn more about nutrition, variety, and new ways of baking?

    Thanks for being there

    I really enjoy whole grains, but I am new to the idea of sprouting and soaking. I have tried soaked oats, but that is it. I would really like to learn more about when to soak, when to sprout, etc. Thank you for the opportunity to win an enrollment in the class.

    First, what “traditional societies” has successfully integrated grains into their culture without also introducing health problems? I’d like to see a reference.

    In ALL instances of hunter-gatherer societies, we see an INCREASE in obesity and an INCREASE in cardiovascular disease, after grains and modern foods have been introduced.

    Grains definitely are NOT healthy in any regard for human consumption. Phytic acit is only marginally reduced by “traditional” preparation methods. Same goes for gluten (which is only ONE of the many difficult to digest proteins in grains). Then there’s lectins that permeate through the GI tract and cause immune reactions. Then there’s rapid spikes in your blood glucose, whole grain OR refined.

    Grains also promote bad gene expression.

    Trying to “prepare” grains is the same thing

  143. Amanda J.
    February 3, 2012 | 12:25 pm

    As my husband and I try to get healthier we have tried to pick better breads, but this has proven impossible. This class would really help us out and add to our understanding as we take the Beautiful Babies course also.

  148. Erica
    February 3, 2012 | 2:56 pm

    I beleive the whole grains have a healthy place in ones diet. However, with all of the people with gluten issues and so many people choosing a Paleo lifestyle, it is so easy to be conflicted regarding grains! I want to feel good again about the whole grains that I consume.

  149. suzanna
    February 3, 2012 | 4:44 pm

    To be able to take that class would be so helpful. I really would love to start eating better. I have had stomachaches latley and notice it is when I eat certain things (oats and some breads) and I really believe if I could do grains properly I would feel better, and my daughter seems to be going through the same thing. I just am having a hard time finding where to start and answer my question. This class looks to be my answer.

  150. Mallory
    February 3, 2012 | 5:56 pm

    There are two main reasons I would like to win enrollment for this course. First and foremost, I suffered from an eating disorder for almost a decade and have been working very hard to use real food to repair the damage I did to my body during that time–and I want to learn as much as I again about how to properly prepare grains so I don’t counteract the healing I’m trying to bring about!
    Furthermore, I was able to recover from my eating disorder by learning about whole foods and how the body uses them and it has become my passion to share this knowledge with other people who suffer from eating disorders. Thus, I want to continue learning so I can continue sharing and helping others bring nourishment back to their bodies. I cannot afford this class, so I really appreciate the opportunity to win!

    i have just been researching and learning about traditional whole foods and how to implement them in my life. ive thrown away just about all the food out of my house–and am in the process of restocking. im feeling overwhelmed. i know that this is the right thing to do for my family–but its so scary! we are getting a dehydrator, wheat grinder and juicer next month {yea!} so Im trying my best to learn all of these techniques–but ive i need more indepth instruction! crossing my fingers big time on this one!

    I am so excited about this course! I have been learning so much in recent days, having just come off of a water fast, and am horrified by the things that I and my child have been eating these last 7 years. My eyes have been opened and we will never go back to the way that we ate before, so this course will be a phenomenal step forward in the right direction! : )

    I am very interested in sprouted grains. Our family deals with serious digestive diseases, which has put us on a journey toward proper nutrition. I am so glad there are sources to teach us the lost art of the proper treatment of grains, and would be grateful to be chosen to receive the free tuition for the course!

    February 3, 2012 | 11:29 pm

    I want to win an enrollment to Ann Marie’s Whole Grains e-course because I really want to learn how to prepare whole grain breads, but also other kinds of grains than just wheat. I recently have cut wheat out of my diet because of digestive problems and I think this e-course could really help me. Also, I am low in funds because I have been applying to grad schools recently so I can’t afford it at this time. I hope I win!

So my next step is figuring out how to do all of our baking needs now with whole grains.

    I have tried doing sourdough before and found it less than satisfactory- I had the sourdough get moldy. Some of the things I tried worked so I’d love some hints to make it work better. Haven’t sprouted grains before and have wanted to try that as well. Am just starting back with wheat after 2 1/2 years away from it and want to do it safely this time!

Great blog and even better giveaway!
