Einkorn Grain

Einkorn Grain

Einkorn is a grain that has never been transformed, never been hybridized and never been crossed. It is the oldest version of wheat there is and has only 14 chromosomes (compared to 42 chromosomes in modern wheat). In short, einkorn is a healthier, more natural choice that hasn’t been processed or modified.

Einorn’s natural genetic code and low gluten levels make it a great choice for more sensitive stomachs compared to current versions of hybridized wheat. Because it is easier to digest, your body can absorb the nutrients in einkorn at higher levels.

Grown by artisan farmers in France using traditional methods, the einkorn Flour used in Young Living products is free from artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives.

 Features & Benefits:

  • Einkorn is non-GMO.
  • Our Einkorn products contain no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives.
  • A stone-ground ancient grain, einkorn is known as one of the oldest varieties of wheat.
  • A “hulled” grain, einkorn’s hull can protect it against contamination and insects.
  • Einkorn’s genetic code has only 14 chromosomes, compared to modern wheat with its 42 chromosomes.
  • Its unique genetics give einkorn a lower gluten content than modern varieties of wheat.
  • Einkorn has a more favorable gliadin to glutenin ratio than modern wheat varieties. Einkorn has a gliadin to glutenin ratio of 2:1 compared to 0.08:1 for durum and hard red wheat.
  • Grown and stone-ground in France by artisan farmers and millers, Young Living’s einkorn products are produced in small batches using traditional methods

Take a look at all the ways you can introduce this grain into your life:

Gary’s True Grit® Einkorn Flour

Gary’s True Grit™ Einkorn Flour can be substituted easily for all-purpose or whole-wheat flours at a 1:1 ratio. Below are some delicious ways to incorporate it into your cooking.

  • In standard muffin, pancake, cake, or cookie recipes, you may want to reduce liquid by as much as 20 percent.
  • In standard cake recipes, try adding an extra egg white to the batter to keep the final product light and fluffy. Also, beat the batter less and at a lower speed.

For bread baking:

  • Resist the temptation to add too much Einkorn Flour to bread dough. Einkorn Flour absorbs liquid more slowly than standard flour, and the dough is often wetter and stickier.
  • Avoid over-kneading the dough. Breads made with Einkorn Flour require less kneading than other breads.
  • When the dough is rising, make sure it springs back when you press on it with your finger. If the dough rises too much, it will deflate in the oven, resulting in a dense, hard crust.

Gary’s True Grit® Einkorn Granola

No time to prepare a healthy snack but don’t want a lot of refined sugar or high fructose corn syrup?  Try Gary’s True Grit Granola for a healthy, on-the-go alternative. It has only 6 grams of sugar, and is filled with wolfberries, cranberries, and cacao nibs to ramp up the flavor.

  • Eat right from the bag
  • roll bananas in them and freeze for late night snack
  • Add to morning yogurt or morning cereal

Insect Repellent by Young Living

Insect Repellent

Young Living’s Insect Repellent is tested to repel mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas using only 100 percent naturally derived, plant-based ingredients.

Here in Florida we joke that the state bird is the mosquito.  As you can imagine, insect repellent is a MUST and is used liberally during all of our summer activities.  Sporting events, outdoor concerts, BBQs, picnics, hiking, camping, kayaking…if it takes place outdoors, you’ll want insect repellent.  Since I need to use it so often, I was really looking for a more natural, toxin free solution without DEET or synthetic chemicals.  As always, I first look to Young Living and as usual, they have the perfect solution.

Pure sesame oil and a carefully selected blend of essential oils traditionally used for their bug-repellent properties come together to make up all 99 percent of the active ingredients in this formula. The other 1 percent? Vitamin E. That means you can use it on your little ones and not worry about the synthetic chemicals used in many traditional repellents. You’ll also love the pleasant, citrusy aroma and smooth, non-greasy, non-sticky application.

So whether you’re spending time in the backyard or the backwoods, you can feel great knowing you have a pure, plant-based way to protect yourself and your loved ones.

Due to state regulations, this product is not available for purchase in every state.

Key Ingredients:

  • Citronella essential oil

ComforTone® Capsules

ComforTone® (capsules)

Essential Oil supplement

 

These capsules use both essential oils and natural herbs to eliminate residue in the colon and optimize its proper activity.* Since ComforTone® supports normal wave-like contractions that move food through the intestines (Peristalsis), it can help keep your colon in tip-top shape by maintaining your entire intestinal system.

ComforTone is ideal for strengthening the system that delivers nutrients to the rest of the body.* It also contains ingredients that are beneficial to liver, gall bladder, and stomach health.*

Real talk: ComforTone helps you poop.  It’s not a pretty subject but we all have that feeling from time to time.  This is especially true when you travel and eat foods that you wouldn’t normally eat.  It’s important that you do not use ComforTone ALL the time and I personally limit use to 2 weeks at a time.  Only use it when you need it and start slow.  So, instead of starting with 1 capsule 3x a day I would start with just one capsule before bedtime and see how your body reacts.

Also noteworthy is that this supplement contains Cascara Sagrada bark, a dark extract.  Because of this, there is a good chance your stool will be black or at least very dark.  But that’s OK – what happens in the bathroom STAYS in the bathroom.  Honestly, it’s better that way.
