1/4 Cup ground flax seed ( I add about 1/2-3/4 cup)
1 Tbsp Sea Salt
3 Tbsp Yeast
5 1/2 Cups Hot Water
1/2 Cup Olive Oil
3/4 Cup Honey
Separate the ingredients. Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl and add to the wet ingredients in your mixing machine
With all ingredients added to your mixer, mix on level 2 for 8 min. It's a very wet looking dough so don't let that scare you. This is what makes it a very moist tasting bread!
After mixing the dough, Flour your hard surface and dump the dough out. A hard non porous surface is best. . Divide dough into fourths and scoop into your greased bread tins.
Let your pans sit for ten minutes before baking.
Bake on the CENTER rack for 25 min. @ 350 degrees
This is what is LOST during the conversion of wheat to white ...
Wheat is stripped of everything GOOD and bleached with Chlorine Gas to make White FLour. The EPA identifies Chlorine Gas as a flour bleaching, aging, and oxidizing agent that is a powerful irritant, dangerous to inhale and lethal. This chlorine gas converts xanathine, a dough additive into a toxic substance called Alloxan. Alloxan is a byproduct of the flour bleaching process that result in the formation of alloxan in the flour.

WHo cares about Alloxan?- Well you should... When Genetic scientist want to study diabetes they give their rats ALLOXAN to GIVE THEM DIABETES- that is common knowledge alloxan gives you diabetes by destroying the beta cells in your pancreas... and in small amounts it is in ANYTHING that has white flour in it.. Our society EATS A TON of things with WHITE FLOUR in them- you do the math- a little can add up to A LOT. And if you haven't noticed the incidence of diabetes is sky rocketing- in YOUNG and OLD.
*Type 2 diabetes has always been an adult disease- because most the time it is dramatically influenced by diet and lack of exercise. In children it used it used to be 96 percent were Type 1 and only 4 % type 2, now in some places only 65 percent are Type 1 and a whopping 35% type 2 care.diabetesjournals.org/content/23/3/381.full.pdfThe important point to take away is, beware of any processed food because chemicals are always used. And we simply don’t know what the long-term effects will be of ingesting chemicals, on top of chemicals, on top of more chemicals. Strive to stick to whole unprocessed foods that are as close to their natural state as possible

Due to the recent tragedy in Japan we have seen people searching for iodine tablets everyhwere- iodine is essential for proper thyroid function- here is a little more info...
The Centers for Disease Control explains on their website that after a radiological or nuclear event, radioactive iodine can drift in the air and, if inhaled, can damage people’s thyroids. When people take potassium iodine, they can fill their thyroids full of iodine and thus prevent their thyroids from absorbing the radioactive iodine ( which will destroy the thyroid).
Many people here in Utah have been worried about the radiation plume and the quality of our air.
Donna Spangler, public information officer for the Utah Department of Environmental Quality, UDEQ website, which assures residents there is “no need to take potassium iodide tablets.”
At this point the levels of radiation prospected to be in the plume that would actually fall on estimated California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, Alaska, etc. is very minimal and is not to pose a serious risk to health. However, "if" the situation in Japan worsens (ie. the Fukushima reactors have a rod "meltdown" - creating a massive release of radiation into the atmosphere) make sure you and tour family are prepared.. here are a few suggestions I received from the herbal legacy newsletter-
2) If suggestion is and you plan to, stay put and to stay within your home for an allotment of time make sure you have plastic and duct tape to seal your windows and doors as well as the supplies needed in the case of a usual emergency: water, food, etc.
4) Staring now, increase your intake of naturally sourced iodine-containing foods and superfoods: (*estimated amounts of naturally occurring iodine)
Icelandic Kelp - *8000ppm Kelp, Dulse, etc. (Seaweeds) - *5400ppm Chlorella - *100ppm Spirulina - *70ppm Pistacios - *51ppm Dark Greens in all there variety Colorful vegetables & fresh fruits Onions & Garlic Iodine tablets
My thoughts and prayers going out to the people in Japan and all those working to control this devastating disaster.
