It is delicious, prepared in many ways such as…
thermos quinoa kichari. My lunch… quinoa… mung beans and greens. With spices its delicious… low calorie… low fat and packed with protein.
There have been so many comments about the Thermos Quinoa Recipe posted at this site a couple of weeks ago and I have been playing with it and making it even more protein packed .
The key to this recipe for me is that it is fast, simple and EZ.
Yet there are ways to make it better… healthier as a reader explained below.
Frankly, when I am moving around… when I am swamped and busy, I barely have time to get the split peas and quinoa so I can throw them in the pot.
So I do this just as the recipe explains. This is so much healthier than grabbing a Pizza or Big Mac at McDonalds and often faster and easier than waiting in a line at a fast food restaurant.
Yet if you have time… and access these suggestions below make the Thermos Quinoa Kitchari even better.
Here is what the readers shared: Gary, I love your writings! I share them with loved ones and I’m sure to read them daily–thank you so much!
And I wanted to share a suggestion with you regarding your Kitchari recipe. I teach on traditional food preparation techniques to clients and patients (I’m a practitioner of Japanese-style acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine), and there’s an extra step you should consider in your preparation.
Doing so will decrease various anti-nutrients (tannins, lectins, phytic acid) that inhibit protein and mineral uptake of the meal you’re eating, as well as decrease the carbohydrate load due to the activity of beneficial bacteria using some of the carbs in the beans and quinoa as an energy source.
Anyway, all you’ll need to do is rinse the beans and quinoa, then soak them in warm water (105-110 degrees), then add a tablespoon or two of raw apple cider vinegar or the whey from fresh, plain yogurt (the liquid portion around the edge), and mix well–for 1 cup of beans or quinoa, use 2 cups water. Set the bowls in a warm, secure spot (we use our microwave–the only use it gets–though on top of a fridge or in an oven would work great too–if you leave them out, then just cover lightly with a paper towel to keep dust and insects out.) Leave them to sit for at least 12 hours, preferably 24, stirring occasionally to break any mold formation from occurring.
By the end of the cycle, you may notice some bubbles of fermentation–that is the wonderful lacto-fermentation that is creating a much more vibrant, less carb-rich, enzyme-packed new version of your beans and quinoa! Rinse them well (you’ll notice your quinoa and beans may be sprouting–even better! More B-vitamins, less carbs as the plant is now using its own carb stores to generate new life, and high in gut-building probiotics (though these will be killed once you cook them, but just enjoy some yogurt on top of the Kitchari to replace that!)
Cook on a low heat–you’ll need less water than normal, so only add enough to cover the beans and quinoa, and add a little more boiling water as needed.
I hope this extra little step pans out to give you a lot more nutrition! Here are a couple of links on my site if you want to see a little more:
Take good care! Sarica
A wise healer once shared two thoughts… #1:Grow like a tree… as nature intended… once ring at a time.
#2: Medicine is dose. Trying too much… all at once can increase instead of reduce stress.
If the ideas above are too much all at once… take it EZ.
The use of the thermos quinoa kitchari recipe alone will improve most diets. Start EZ and do what you can when you can.
Here is a more protein loaded version of my thermos quinoa kicahri.
Thermos EXTRA Quinoa Kichari
This meal is a very healthy, fast… easy… portable lunch anywhere.
This is a meal you can live on… balanced with EXTRA protein, carbs and fat… filled with nutrition, delicious and easy and fast to prepare.
Here is the recipe for EXTRA QUINOA Thermos Quinoa Kitchari.
The original quinoa thermos Kitcharoi uses 1/3 cup quinoa and 2/3 cup green or yellow split peas of mung beans. In the EXTRA QUINOA Thermos Quinoa Kitchari I swaped amounts of quinoa (2/3 cup) and beans (1/3 cup).
2/3 cup Quinoa
1/3 cup Mung Beans (or Yellow Split) or Green Split Peas.
Handful of Vegetables of your choice.
3 cups (approx.) Water
A bit of Salt
1 tsp. Coconut Oil, Ghee or Olive Oil.
1 tsp. Cumin Powder
1/2 tsp. Turmeric Powder
1/2 tsp. Coriander Powder
1/2 tsp. Fennel Powder
1 pinch Asafoetida (Hing) if this suits you.
Stir the dry quinoa, split peas (or mung beans), vegetables, oil and spices with the water and bring to a boil. Turn off and let soak 10 minutes. Put back on simmer for 1.5 Its ready to eat!
Or after bringing to a boil, turn off and let soak 10 minutes. Bring back to boil and put in thermos. Add the coconut oil on top. Close the thermos. Leave at least two hours. Open and eat!
Either way is delicious.
I personally like spinach or greens and celery as vegetables… ideally organic and ideally washed with Purely Green. I cut them into smallish pieces so they’ll fit in the thermos.
I use organic quinoa and soak in water overnight if I remember. Then pour out the water in the morning. I also use organic spices… normally Frontier Brand purchased at the health food store.
This is a healthy, low calorie (about 250 calories per cup), protein packed food that is easy, fast, filling and delicious.
Here is a longevity secret.
This is a recent comment from a reader in the Pacific Northwest: Gary, Thank you very much for this product. I have taken it for 2 months, am down 20 lbs of fat and put on 5 or 6 lbs of muscle. I currently weigh 194lbs on my way down to 178 where I was 2 ½ years ago. My blood pressure has gone from dangerously high to 133 over 83 and headed further South. I am 70 years old and feel terrific since using this product. It has done wonders for my energy.
If you see more orders come from my area I may be the cause of it as I’ve been spreading the word. I’ve shared it with personal trainers in my gym who train boomers and others and have some credibility as they see it working well for me.
Ecuador Longevity Secret
Merri and I lived and worked with this Ecuador Yatchak for seven years. This photo was taken after a purification ceremony at a sacred spring.
A huge health focus by this yatchak was purification… from the inside and out. He had us walk in mountain mists. The negative ions in the mists attached to free radicals and purified the skin to cleanse us from the inside out.
Another purification was of our blood. Herbs… minerals and a low calcium diet. There was almost no dairy served.
Since it is difficult for most of us to eat cleansing food in the West, this message looks at a longevity alternative and begins by showing how and why, in the 1960’s, due to strict OSHA regulations, the government curtailed a simple (and incredibly low cost) amino acid that can help improve cardiovascular systems, increase memory, improve vision, enhance vitality, expand energy and extend lifespan.
Access to good health care is vital and should be enjoyed by all. Yet it is not. It had been a Western birthright… each generation living longer than the last. New research shows this is no longer true for all. Government studies show that there are widening gaps in life expectancy based on income, race, sex, education and geography.
There are two Americas measured by wealth and health, and the distortions are growing.
A government-sponsored study by Harvard researchers found that life expectancy actually declined in a substantial number of counties from 1983 to 1999, particularly for women. Most of the counties with declines are in the Deep South, along the Mississippi River, and in Appalachia, as well as in the southern Plains and Texas.
The article went on to say that the people of Appalachia used to be among the longest lived. I can believe it. There is a family cemetery here on our farm. These five headstones show the occupants lived to be 86, 91, 95, 100 and 115! The 115 year old lived from 1794 to 1909. I wonder what type of medical insurance she had back here in these hills?
Here is that cemetery.
This problem of declining service is growing in more sectors than just American health care.
This growing gap is a concern on many fronts…but means, that in many parts of the Western world, good health care is only available to an increasingly smaller portion of top earners.
To overcome this problem Merri and take many steps to improve how we feel each day and hopefully enhance our activity and longevity. We meditate daily… have a strong sense of purpose in our business and life, keep a regime of regular, mild exercise and yoga and eat our own or locally grown food whenever we can. We also use numerous nutritional disciplines… including a mix of nutrients recommended some years ago by a reader and seminar delegate.
This delegate was an M.D. He was in his eighties but had the energy and looks of a much, much younger man. When asked about his secret of youth he said his vitality was based on several factors. A few of them you would expect, such as good diet, sufficient exercise and plenty of activity in a strong, purposeful life. Then he explained another secret of his youth and energy: chelation.
The youthful doctor told us he had been running the largest I.V. chelation center in the United States from Hawaii. Hardening of the arteries is such a huge problem in our modern world that he was making a fortune.
Then, he said, he had learned about Beyond Chelation (TM) a vitamin-mineral formula created by Dr. Gary Gordon. The doctor said he found this so effective that he shut down his clinics and exclusively used this simple formula which he (after seeing the results of Dr. Gordon’s formula) felt had better results than I.V. chelation therapy.
Over 30 years of Dr. Gordon’s experience as a clinician, researcher and educator in chelation therapy are behind this comprehensive cardiovascular nutritional supplement, designed to maintain and promote vascular health, mental and physical well being.
Our client and doctor friend gave us a month’s supply of this formula. He thought it would be excellent for us and would help us with traveling also. Merri and I tried this product ourselves and felt great, plus we loved the savings we enjoyed. It is so much less expensive than all the numerous other vitamins and minerals that we had been taking. We actually were spending less! In addition this system is so convenient. Everything is in one simple daily packet. Especially when we travel we just bring along a packet for each day we are on the road. No more loading up pill boxes or bringing bottles (or suitcases full of bottles) of vitamins and stuff.
We liked this product so much we began passing the favor on to many delegates at seminar. As is so often the case when we like something we start talking about it and pretty soon, a batch of friends were taking Beyond Chelation Improved and telling us great things about their experiences.
Here is an example of raves we receive on April 21, 2012 from a delegate who received a month’s supply in early March:
I was introduced to and given 30 days supply of a product (for which I must thank my good friend, Merri Scott, profusely) that is clinically proven to clean out the blood and much much more.
Almost Miraculous results? Well…you be the judge.
Look at the 2 blood tests (lipids,sugars etc.) I had done recently, just 2 months apart.
My Cholesterol was 330 then, 169 now!
My triglycerides were 1350 then, 199 now!
Both incredibly, dangerously high, if fact doctor said he never saw or even heard of Tri’s so high. (I checked on the internet, others do have them that high).
My (FBS) Blood sugar was 150, now 129!
Hemaglobin count up appreciably (red blood cells), which is real good too!
And Blood Pressure at the time was 130/80, a bit high, now 107/70= Perfect said the doc!
Man I feel a whole lot better too.
How did I do it?
1) Exercise greatly intensified & consistent= 3-5 days a week in gym weight-lifting, plus biking-walking-swimming.
2) Diet= a) Dropped fatty meats (ie. Bacon/Pork chops etc).
b) “NO WHITES ALLOWED” DIET= No white Sugar, Flour or Starch (yes= ouch!).
b-1= Cut non-white and white GLUTENS (mostly Gluten-free) too!
b-2= Mucho water, and only purely natural fruit juices… fresh squeezed & ground (minimized frequency).
b-3= More adamantly continued NO ALCOHOL consumption!
c) Added more fresh veggies & fruits, as many as can be found in BZ (Not many veggies variety esp).
I had been adjusting diet and starting to exercise (Gym= Weights & Biking) 3 months before the tests so who knows if they were even higher before I tested?
The slight dieting and much more exercising alone, evidently, did not change it much!
I have lost about 33 lbs of fat ,and gained 10 pounds of muscle, so I am down 23 lbs, from 244 to 221!
Lost some love-handle & gut inches ! I am going for under 200, over the next few months,where I haven’t been for about almost 20 years!
I have had high cholesterol and triglycerides, since I was in my mid to late 30’s (now 58),and always did diet and exercise changes to adjust them down a bit, but never were they anywhere near this “before drastic action” high before, nor have they ever been this low after the 2nd test and resultant phenomenal improvements! I continue to refuse to take the poisonous Pharmaceuticals Doc’s keep trying to stuff down my gut! No PHARMA. PHARMA-KILLS!
“Health is our greatest Wealth”…no assets have real value when we lose it!
Thank God for: good friends, good food, good info, good nutrition, good energy, good exercise, and good health!
May Goodness & Mercy follow & lead us, over the mountains and thru the valleys, revealing light thru the darkness all the days of our lives!
I DO FEEL SO GOOD again! Via Con Dios !
They reordered so much of it through us that I decided to make it available to all my readers at a really special price… lower than I believe you can get anywhere on the internet to see if readers are interested in obtaining Beyond Chelation Improved through us.
Let me begin by saying that Beyond Chelation Improved has not been evaluated by the FDA. This product is not intended to diagnose, cure or prevent disease and should only be taken as a food supplement. Having said this I share Dr. Gordon’s information below.
Dr. Garry Gordon of Payson, Arizona, is one of the fathers of the Chelation Therapy movement and he developed this cardiovascular nutritional supplement called “Beyond Chelation”.
This supplement combines more than sixty ingredients, known to have beneficial effects, into one total cardiovascular support program. “The name of this new product states exactly what it is,” says Dr. Gordon. “It’s what the public should be taking if they’ve already had chelation or can’t afford it, or simply want to take advantage of new breakthroughs that permit us to safely and effectively reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke.” In addition to promoting heart health, Dr. Gordon has found that his supplement has multiple anti-aging effects. Along with Dr. Dean Ornish of Sausalito, California, who demonstrated in a five-year study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association that heart disease could be reversed, Dr. Gordon believes that vascular disease can be arrested and cured. However, for those unable to stick to an extremely low-fat diet (below 9% in total fat content) and the meditation and exercise mandated in Dr. Ornish’s program, Beyond Chelation may provide similar effects. In his own practice, Dr. Gordon has been able to document significant improvements of blood flow to the legs, head and heart of patients experiencing problems of clot, spasm and arrhythmia with the use of oral chelation formula so that fewer than 5% have had to have heart surgery.
There are many benefits from chelation:
- Helps to prevent Arteriosclerosis (Hardening of the arteries)
- Helps to rejuvenate your cardiovascular system
- Helps to improve conduction in all degrees of A-V heart block
- Helps to abolish extra heart beats, skipped beats and rapid heart beats
- Helps to decrease ventricular arrhythmia due to digitalis toxicity
- Helps as a pre-operative preparation
- Helps remove lead and heavy metals from the system
- Helps increase American life expectancy
- Reduces toxic lead and metal deposits and abnormal calcium deposits
- Reduces blood pressure and blood cholesterol
- Improves circulation
- Improves vision and hearing
- Improves liver function
- Improves skin texture and tone
- Helps prevent abnormal cross linking of molecules that age tissue
- Helps to relieve symptoms of senility by increasing circulation to the brain
- Helps to relieve pain, hypoglycemia, phlebitis and scleroderma
- Dissolves fats in plaque lined arteries
- Helps make blood slippery and prevents abnormal blood clotting
- Helps to increase tissue oxygenation
How does Chelation Therapy work?
It is a largely hidden fact that the main blood vessel leaving the heart of a healthy 80 year old man has 140 TIMES more pathologic calcium in it than the main blood vessel of a healthy boy of ten. By means of chelation therapy, this unwanted calcium (causing a build up of vulnerable plaque, hardening of the arteries, and potential heart problems) is removed from blood vessels and put into water-soluble complexes (chelates), which are readily excreted through the kidneys. Clinical observations reveal, however, that the amount of calcium in bones is not affected by the removal of calcium in the arteries nor is it diminished by the use of EDTA chelation therapy.
What is EDTA and is it safe?
Chelation therapy (using the synthetic amino acid known as EDTA) has been a standard treatment for lead and heavy metal poisoning since World War II. In the 1940’s and 1950’s, patients taking EDTA chelation therapy for lead poisoning reported improved memory, vision, hearing and smell, and diminished leg and heart pain. Since then nearly 1,000,000 patients with cardiovascular disease have been treated successfully. Further, EDTA has been used as a food additive for over 30 years, the average American consuming between 15-30 mgs in their diets daily.
Why was EDTA put on the back burners?
In the 1960’s, prior to the current strict OSHA regulations, workers poisoned by high levels of lead at their jobs were given EDTA tablets by their company doctors to excrete the lead. The government, wanting to get to the source of the problem, ordered this remedy to be curtailed and the working environment improved. Because of this situation and with this order, oral EDTA chelation went into seclusion.
Why is Oral Chelation surfacing now?
Through almost 30 years of comparative case studies, researchers have discovered that oral and IV EDTA chelation therapy (especially when augmented by scientifically formulated nutritive support) improved the functioning of most organs of the body. Recently, biological age determination testing has gained widespread scientific acceptance, which allows us to prove that Chelation therapy improves the functioning of most organs, effectively turning back their biological clocks. It also may be a solution to the newly discovered cause of 85% of the major heart attacks now targeting half of the American males in the United States who are over 40 years of age: vulnerable plaque.
Preventive Medicine and Longevity Medicine: the Medicine of the Future!
Anti-Aging, Longevity, and Preventative Medicine are the Future! With our knowledge of alternative medicine doubling every three years and our technology advancing exponentially, we are entering an age where we are able to probably turn our biological clock backwards! Instruments are now in use that can measure the functioning of each of our physical organs and new high potency nutritional supplements, hormonal balancing, and advanced oral chelation products have become available which can enhance the functioning of our organs and help prevent heart attacks and fight many of the auto-immune and degenerative diseases that are plaguing modern society.
What is “Beyond Chelation”? With over 30 years of experience as a clinician, researcher & educator in Chelation Therapy, Dr. Gordon has formulated a comprehensive cardiovascular nutritional support supplement designed to maintain and promote cardiovascular health and combined it with the finest ingredients known for mental and physical well being within a product known as “Beyond Chelation,” the new cardio-support, multi-vitamin-mineral of the future augmented by amino-acids, polysaccharides, herbs and more.
There is one more benefit and that is the savings and convenience. Taking Beyond Chelation Improved provides almost every vitamin and mineral that we were previously taking in separate form. Merri and I have actually reduced our spending on vitamins and minerals. Plus Beyond Chelation Improved comes in a handy nine capsule cellophane packets, that is easy to carry and take each day. One container has thirty packets, a month’s supply, which at $59.998 (49.99 plus $9.99 shipping) makes this a very inexpensive way to get most of the vitamins and minerals you already take as you gain the chelation benefits.
Beyond Chelation Improved (TM) consists of 30 packets with 9 capsules. Each packet contains: three multi-vitamins/minerals, three detoxifiers (which deliver a combined total of 400 mgs of EDTA), one Omega 3 marine lipid concentrate, one evening primrose oil and one Ginkgo Biloba capsule. This formula provides the finest multi-vitamin/mineral available and essential ingredients to feed the heart, chelators to help rid the body of heavy metals and help control chronic inflammation, which now is known to be the MAJOR cause of heart attacks and strokes. It also provides Ginkgo Biloba with phosphatidyl serine and choline for their proven neuroprotective effects, as well as their anti-platelet activity.
Dr. Gordon has purposely left IRON out of this supplement because recent research has linked the availability of iron to infectious organisms in arteries, which are now proven to be directly linked to blood clots that cause 85% of heart attacks and strokes.

I BLESS Gary & Merri Scott (GaryaScott.com) for introducing and gifting it to me, when I was at their Super-learning Spanish and Super-thinking course (which I highly recommend too= Mucho Mejor!) . It just may have saved my life…or helped alot! SALUD! Health is our greatest Wealth!
Longevity comes in many ways… prevention and good medical intervention when prevention did not do the job. Beyond Chelation and Ecuador health care are answers to both.
