Help for This Allergy Season

March 22, 2018
allergies

I love spring, the first blades of grass and new buds on the trees. But I haven’t always been a spring lover. A few years ago, those first signs of spring were met with a different response: ACHOO! Interestingly, allergies and hay-fever have not always been a human trait. In fact, they’re relatively new to us. Seasonal allergies may have begun as recently as the Industrial Revolution, and—this is the intriguing part—they only hit the upper classes. It was so…

But when made with the right blend of nutrients (fats, minerals, iron, protein, and veggies – not just fruits), smoothies can be very, very nutritious to the body. For those who follow a diet in favour of raw…

gluten

Glutens are mixtures of proteins originating from cereal grains. Gluten can keep dough from crumbling, make it stretch, and are 75-80% protein. They cause serious illness in people with celiac disease, who must completely avoid gluten just like a person with diabetes must avoid sugar. Although we throw around the term “gluten”, there are actually several glutens. One type is a storage protein called prolamin, which helps make grains hardy. Over generations, we have selectively bred cereal grasses, such as wheat…
