This page is all about the kitchen protocols the nutritionist follows in the kitchen of today, Visit this page to discover some of the protocols that are in use.
Here, we have a number of kitchen protocols that the nutritionist follows on a regular basis. Three such protocols are described below and more will be added in the future.
Incorporate these sound nutritional practices into your lifestyle until they become second nature. If you do, you will have taken another step towards building an ageless body.
Kitchen Protocols #1: Distilling Water: In this section, you will find the first of our kitchen protocols. The protocol deals only with distilled water that has been obtained from a one-gallon-capacity, electrical, distillation unit that is equipped with an air-cooled condenser and a GAC unit in the down spout.
Caution: To avoid being scalded with hot water vapor, do not bump or jar the unit while in operation. Keep it on a counter top well removed from where you are working in the kitchen.
Follow the instructions below to make a batch of distilled water:
Invest in a Distillation System for the Home: You want to be able to make small batches of one gallon or more at a time. It normally takes 3 to 4 hours to distill each batch, so plan to run your still accordingly. The one-gallon capacity is just right for one or two people. For families, larger units are available, as well as units with higher through-puts.
A distillation unit removes:
etc., etc., etc.
However, volatile organics like trihalomethanes, including chloroform, and other organic solvents that have boiling points that are lower than water, if present, are not removed. The way around this is to use a granular activated carbon tailing unit on the outlet of the distiller. So, what you have is a two-stage system.
Kitchen Protocol #2: Milling Grains: Here, in the second of our kitchen protocols, we discuss how to go about milling organic grains such as oat groats and spelt kernels in small batches for immediate use. You need a high quality, mechanical-type grain mill for this purpose, preferably with stainless steel rollers.
Follow the instructions below to mill a batch of oat groats:
Note: Since the nutrients are locked inside the oat groats until they are milled, nothing is rancid. So, you can either eat the oat meal raw, or cook the oat flakes on the stove, like you would when making a pot of porridge.
Recipe: The following is a recipe for making raw Banana Oats, which I usually have once a week. The quantities suggested are enough for 1 serving. This mixture forms a complete meal.
Kitchen Protocol #3: Cracking Seeds: Now, in the third of our kitchen protocols, we describe how to grind organic, flax seeds in small batches for immediate use. You can use a seed cracker or coffee grinder for this purpose.
Follow the instructions below to grind a batch of flax seeds:
Note: The reason you pulse for one-second-intervals is that you just want to crack the seeds to release the essential fatty acids that are locked inside, but you don't want to grind them excessively.
In addition, the grinding action and perhaps the heat generated would tend to damage the structure of the essential fatty acids and may also spoil the other nutrients.
