Calories vs. Nutrition
For years we have been taught that nutrition is based upon calories, however modern research shows that not all calories are counted the same. In fact much of our common daily diet is filled with calories that make our bellies feel temporarily full but which provide little nutritional value. These are known more and more as empty calories because while they may have calorific value, they lack the density of nutritional elements that we need to perform our body’s essential functions. So while a piece of white bread may have a similar calorie profile as a piece of wholegrain bread, the difference in vitamin, mineral, phytochemical, protein and antioxidant content is dramatic. Often the food processors add back vitamins, which are frequently synthetically derived and may look good on the label but give no benefit and some would argue create a detrimental effect on our health.
Why Is The Pail Organic?
There is much debate about why going organic is so important. It is an important topic to debate for multiple reasons because it is truly significant with regards to our health. Most people I talk to believe that organics means foods that are grown without pesticides. While this is true and important, it is only a small part of a very important equation. When a farmer practices organic agriculture, pest and weed control are definitely part of the puzzle, but nourishing the soil and feeding and building up essential soil flora and fauna are the most important things farmers can do. The reasons for this are that if you nourish the soil well it builds a fungal web and also increases the health of soil organisms that break down the minerals into a size that plants can absorb. Healthy soil means healthy plants and healthy plants rarely need pesticides or herbicides, even natural alternatives. This is a much more essential part of the process. Other important things farmers can do are to build the soil with compost and minerals. Another essential element of organic agriculture is to preserve the sol you have built. This involves good water management to prevent erosion, as well as mulching that will also prevent erosion and hold the nutrients in the soil for the plant to absorb.
When you understand that conventional farming only fertilizes using 3 minerals; nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium, you can see why conventional veggies have much less nutritional value. Our bodies need over 70 different minerals to function optimally and if they are not in the soil, as they are with a good organic farming method, we will not get them.
How Does Your Stored Foods Differ From Other Stored Foods?
The concept of storing food is an age old one that is gaining a renewed appreciation in many circles and for many reasons. Unfortunately much of the prepared food available on the market today has certain distinct disadvantages. Much of what is available is canned. Most cans used commercially for canning contain lining material that uses Bisphenol A, an endocrine disrupting compound that is being banned in Europe and many other countries worldwide. Other foods and often canned foods contain high amounts of salt and sugar, in addition to artificial colorings, artificial flavorings, MSG and other items that have been proven to be detrimental to our health. We believe that whatever foods you store should be as healthy as possible and this is why we created thIS ORGANIC FOOD SUPPLY.

Black Beans have a special kind of fiber that the colon uses to produce butyric acid, a fatty acid that the cells of the colon uses to fuel their activity and maintain proper intestinal transit time. Sufficient fiber intake is crucial to good intestinal health. Black beans are rich in fiber, beneficial antioxidants, folates, protein, minerals and B vitamins.
Garbanzo Beans have high nutritional content, namely fiber, protein, trace minerals, vitamins, fatty acids, antioxidant rich phytochemicals and folates. Garbanzos, probably because of their high fiber and nutrient dense nature, give a feeling of fullness that prevents overeating. Garbanzos are high in fiber and many studies have shown how fiber assists in the balance of excess blood fats, cholesterol and blood sugar levels.
Pinto Beans are high in fiber, which helps balance blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Pinto beans are also rich in beneficial antioxidants, folates, protein, minerals and B vitamins. One mineral that is especially rich in molybdenum that helps detox sulfites from the body. They also contain good iron content, a mineral that needs replenishing regularly. Other important minerals in pinto beans that are cofactors in the production of a very potent antioxidant, Superoxide Dismutase are copper and manganese. Pintos are particularly high in protein too.
ROLLED OATS Oats are highly nutritious and are rich in fiber. The special form of fiber in oats is itself rich in beta glucans, a kind of fiber with important cholesterol and blood sugar balancing as well as immune enhancing benefits. Oats are also rich in protein, vitamins and minerals. They are versatile in that you can cook them or just soak them for 20-30 minutes before eating them. Soaking oats with raisins or other dried fruit creates a very tasty breakfast.
Lentils are also a food with a high nutritional content. As with most beans and pulses, lentils are high in fiber, which help s balance blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Lentils are also are rich in beneficial antioxidants, folates, protein, minerals and B vitamins. One mineral that is especially rich in lentils is magnesium, an important mineral that helps relax arteries and thus benefit cardiovascular health. Another important mineral well represented in lentils is potassium, a crucial mineral involved in the cell’s absorption of nutrients and release of waste. Lentils can be easily soaked overnight and then rinsed twice daily for 2-3 days until they sprout. In this form no cooking is needed and the lentils can be added to salads or sandwiches.
Quinoa is a nutty south American supergrain that is rich in amino acids (protein) as well as many other nutrients. What sets quinoa apart from other grains is that it is a complete protein. It is also high in mineral content, especially manganese, magnesium, phosphorous, copper and iron amongst others. Quinoa is also rich in phytochemicals that act as antioxidants in the body. A diet containing frequent portions of whole grains has been shown to contribute to a reduced risk for a large number of health conditions as part of a healthy lifestyle.
Millet is another healthy grain that is less well known in the west but which is gaining in popularity. It has been enjoyed as a staple for hundreds of years in both Africa and certain regions of India. Millet is one of the few grains that is considered to have an alkaline effect on the body, a fact that is gaining recognition in many nutritional circles which consider that an alkaline body is less likely to succumb to disease. Millet is rich in amino acids, minerals, B vitamins and other important phytonutrients. It is particularly rich in phosphorous, a mineral that is crucial for the rebuilding of cell membranes and of the nervous system . It also has a high amino acid content.
Chia itself is considered a superfood. It has an optimal balance of Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids as well as being a superb source of vegetable based protein. Chia is hydrophilic in nature. It absorbs much more water than most other foods, leaving you feeling full and allowing your body to absorb nutrition more slowly.
SPROUTED SUNFLOWER SEEDS
Sprouted sunflower seeds are very rich in folates and calcium as well as containing a good amount of vitamin E, B vitamins, iron, potassium and zinc. They also provide a good source of healthy fats. In the sprouted form most of the nutrients in the sunflower seeds soar. For example available calcium in the sprouted seed is almost three times as much as the non-sprouted seed. Available vitamin A skyrockets.
Why would you ever eat white rice, when the milling process removes close to 70 % of the nutrient content. Rice is probably one of the most consumed grains worldwide. Unlike white rice, brown rice contains valuable fiber in its bran as well as vitamin rich properties in the valuable rice-germ. Brown rice is also rich in minerals such as selenium, manganese, iron and magnesium, not to mention the many essential fatty acids and B complex vitamins, in addition to substantial amounts of fiber.
Organic powdered milk has a creamy taste with your oatmeal makes a winning breakfast. What’s more, consuming dairy that is not organic is not at all healthy. This milk is 100 % organic from cows that are treated as nature intended, grass fed, free roaming and without hormones or antibiotics. Rich in calcium too.
Sprout blend contains sprouts of the following seeds that are subsequently dried at a low temperature. French and red lentils; whole peas, mung beans, aduki beans, alfalfa and radish. As mentioned above under sprouted sunflower seeds, all sprouted seeds contain a much higher nutritional profile than their unsprouted counterparts.
