Amaranth: The crop of the Future?

Amaranth: The crop of the Future?

This large leaf bushy plant grows to heights of 6 feet and produces bright vibrant flowers containing thousands of tiny seeds that can be milled into flour and eaten like a grain.

This forced people to replace amaranth as a staple food with more corn, which has a higher toll on agriculture production and soil health. There is a strong movement in research and study in Mexico geared towards revitalizing this crop back into the countries main staple crops. In 1977 Science magazine called amaranth “the crop of the future” because of its hardiness and abundant nutritional profile. In our home we enjoy cereal made from amaranth as a warm breakfast with added seeds, nuts, fruit and even puréed squash mixed in. Here are two recipes I have come up with my children love!

Rewind your life all the way back to before your first breath, before your cells began to divide before your creation what would remain? Through the generations of our lineage and human experience the energy of our ancestors and earth consciousness flows through every cellular process of our biology. Forward thinkers attest that energy can neither be created nor destroyed, only transmuted, this suggest that we hold within us the make up of the entire history or creation. Famine, war, slavery, drought, religion, torture and plagues of disease all vibrate through our being as messengers of information. Directly our family passes us down traits gene by gene, but have you ever stopped to think you contain the messages of all of mankind’s experiences and creations? Collective consciousness can be seen as the ebb and flow present energy surrounding our every breath, creation and movement. Imagine at conception a ladle is dipped into this sea of consciousness that will contain your genetic imprint of the whole, what ingredients were in your ladle? How many memories do you hold for humanity, what are your dynamic links to the past? As you begin to uncover these ties the depth can sometimes feel endless; wether you are exploring hereditary traits of your family, culture or religion or delving into the great souls “Karma” much of our healing happens in unwinding these stories.
