Wellness Wednesday 1

One of the things we need to consider when prepping for hard times is our nutritional health. Eating beans and rice all the time may not give us what our bodies need for optimum health. Stocking freeze dried vegetables is going to help but other considerations need to be thought out as well.

Vitamins and minerals are a good thing to stock up on as well. I keep a lot of vitamin D3 which is good for a lot of things. Granted when in a SitX setting we may all be getting more sunlight, working to grow and gather food, but D3 is a good supplement for cold season and help shirk any influenza also. I also keep Krill oil with Astaxanthin. This is a great source of Omega 3 fatty acid plus astaxanthin is a wonderful anti-oxidant. I keep cayenne pepper in pill form as well as powder. It is great for so many things especially heart matters. One prominent herbalist used to claim he never lost a heart attack patient because of cayenne. He claimed a tablespoon stirred in a glass of water would revive most anyone having severe heart issue. Keep coming back as I share more of what I stock.

Variety will be important too, for morale and nutrition. Consider dark leafy green vegetables a source of a lot of rich nutrients. Whether stocking canned items or seeds for growing your own. Kale, collards, mustard and similar leafy greens are wonderful. Spinach is another good source of vitamins and minerals. Broccoli and other cruciferous veggies will be important too.

Consider learning to grow sprouts. Sprouts are an awesome source of nutrition and can be grown indoors. The issue here is rinsing. Find the technique to grow with the least amount of water usage for those real hard pressed times. Water will be a precious resource in tough times. I like Easy Sprout and it is what I use most often but I have several Sproutman Hemp bags as well. Did you know that the nutrients in beans can be 40% more bioavailable to your body when soaked overnight. Simple planning ahead for meals the next day may be your greatest nutritional resource.

Check out Sprout People and The Sprout House for more resources. I buy organic sprouts from both places and have wonderful results. They are both great resources for your sprouting needs.
