“It is all so ridiculous and means really nothing...an intellectual geek exercise.
Jesus...if he ever existed at all...is a remote caricature reference used by TV minister's huckstering for greenbacks, or pandering political figures, or robed hypocrites. He has been dressed like a store window manikin to sell scams since the day he died and was reinvented...starting with Paul. He is not even called by his real name...fitting though isn't it?”

“I think anyone that actually pays their credit cards is not only stupid...but un-American!
What banks are allowed to do to the people is not only unethical but immoral. After taking all that bailout money and more they are gouging beyond all reason. I say they need a big lesson.
Max out your cards and walk away...they do the same to us every chance they get...give them a taste of their own medicine.”

“And yet I bet you want Romney to move his Swiss bank account into one of these banks you speak so highly about. Your advice to max out your credit cards then walk away maybe a brilliant protest in your mind but is suicide for your future financials. Enjoy terrible credit. I'm sure you will be happy paying high interest rates for everything you need to finance.”

“That is called theft! The banks follow the law. You're theft is at the expense of hard working responsible everyday folks, but then again what else would you expect from a entitlement minded person. And when you get caught and you have nothing left but a jail sentence you will blame Bush, right!”
I wouldn't say it's laborious...all you have to is rinse them twice a day. In the morning while making breakfast and in the evening while making dinner. I use a qt Mason jar with a plastic screen, or cheese cloth cut to fit the lid ring. Place a 1/4 cup of seeds in the jar, close with screen and ring. Fill with cool water, empty through the screen and let it drain upside down in the sink awhile.
Give it a gentle shake to distribute the seeds and lay on it's side in a cupboard. Rinse as above and after three days that's it. With wheat, barley, rye, oats, as soon as the little white root point appears it's finished.
For sm seeds and beans judge for yourself the length of the white root portion and for extra benefit place in on a sunny window sill for a day to boost up the chlorophyll and vitamin content.
Sprout garbanzos for making hummus...really makes a delicious difference. I sprout pintos and use them in standard recipes. Sprout large beans like the large grains...just until the little rootlet peeks out. Sprouted beans digest as a vegetable not a starch, no need for those anti-toot drops!

“Hi BooBam! Thank you so much for the details of sprouting! Love sprouted chia seeds, I add it every day in my green drink.”
“Hate to tell you all this but all grains and seeds are unhealthy!
Unless they are treated properly before eating.
They all have protective enzymes to preserve them until conditions are favorable for sprouting.
They can last in some cases for thousands of years.
In the 50's a citrus trees were grown and produced a bitter fruit from seeds found in an Egyptian tomb.
Watch birds, they rarely eat grains directly from the plant.
When do they eat them? After they fall to the ground.
And what are the seeds doing when they are on the ground?
They are sprouting.
Sprouting eliminates those enzymes and converts the stored starches to more digestible sugars.
Fermenting also does that as in sourdough breads.
Beans, grains and seeds all should only be eaten after being sprouted or after being fermented.
The ancients knew that and there are many, many examples and recipes that show that fact.
It took us modern know it all's to turn the staff of life, wheat, into one of the unhealthiest things we can put into our bodies! White flour has only one decent use that I can think of...to layout ground lines for a baseball game!”

“Yes BooBam, you are absolutely correct that sprouting will help to get the most out of the quinoa seeds!
Sprouting reduces the level of phytic acid in nuts, seeds, beans and grains. Cooking quinoa does reduce the levels as well, but not as much as sprouting. By sprouting you convert the seeds or grains into a vegetable activating its life force and enzymes!
You do want to consume lower levels of phytic acid in general because it is a chelator (binder) and can prevent optimal absorption of essential minerals such as calcium, magnesium and zinc in the gut.
By sprouting, you can reduce the phytic acid levels at least by 50%.
I recommend my patients to add sprouted chia seeds to their green drinks daily!
It is difficult to find sprouted quinoa, where do you buy yours? Brand name?
Here is a helpful site on sprouting quinoa at home, but laborious!
“This is totally ridiculous and stupid to post...it can eaily give people completely false readings!
Unless the monitor they are viewing this on has been calibrated to the monitor the test was posted to it is useless. There is no universal color standard for computer monitors, ipads, smart phones etc. What one person sees can be completely different than another. That is why we in the print graphics business spend thousands on calibration software...and we still cannot trust what we view on our monitors! That is why we go by the numbers when color correcting and setting up images for print. Instead of using ours eyes we use software that presents colors as numbers and adjust the image according to those numbers and not visually.
This test is completely bogus and may cause some poor person unnecessary distress.”

“Actually, I have to disagree, the hue differential will still be in a detectable continuum. We aren't being asked to identify the colors merely the saturation of one hue versus another.”
