Thermos Quinoa Kitchari.  Quinoa is a great vegetarian food because it is a complete protein and can replace wheat even though it belongs to a different botanical class.  Quinoa is a relative of spinach, beets and chard but provides all nine essential amino acids and is a source of fiber, magnesium, iron and riboflavin.

However quinoa contains three substances that may hinder natural health.  One substance are saponins, soap-like molecules that coat the exterior of quinoa. They can lead to digestive problems and even “leaky gut”. Another is prolamins that can extend gluten reactions even when gluten is not taken in. The third substance is phytic acid which actively binds to important minerals and makes them unavailable to the body. When quinoa is soaked 12 hours prior to cooking a great deal of the saponins are removed as well as 60% to 70% of the physic acid.  If the quinoa is fermented with whey for 18 hours even more of the phytic acid is removed.

Thermos Quinoa Kitchari Thermos quinoa kitchari is a very healthy, fast… easy… portable meal anywhere.

This is a meal you can live on… balanced with protein, carbs and fat… filled with nutrition, delicious and easy and fast to prepare.

Here is the recipe for Thermos Quinoa Kitchari.

1/3 cup organic quinoa (dry or fermented)

2/3 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.

If dry soak the quinoa in water overnight. Then pour out the water in the morning. Stir the dry quinoa, split peas (or mung beans), vegetables and spices with the water and bring to a boil.

Cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Bring back to a boil and pour into a thermos.

Add the coconut oil on top.

Close the thermos.

Leave at least two hours.  Enjoy your walk. Open and eat!  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 also use organic spices… normally Frontier Brand purchased at the health food store.

Benefits of Omega 3

Omega 3 is important for longevity and good natural health.

Research has shown that high Omega-3 Index values are related to slow rates of “cellular aging.”

“No nutrient is more important for decreasing cardiovascular death – and more lacking – than omega-3.”  Bernadine Healy, MD  Cardiologist and Past President of American Heart Association  – Past Director of the NIH – Past Director of the Red Cross.

She concludes:   “Before long, your personal Omega-3 Index just could be the new cholesterol – the number you want to brag about.  Omega-3 content in red blood cells is a strong predictor cardiovascular disease.”

Low levels of Omega-3 fatty acids are associated with higher rates of:

* Heart Disease, including:

* Sudden Cardiac Death (Primary Cardiac Arrest)

* Mortality from Congestive Heart Failure

* Mortality after Heart Attack

* 2nd Heart Attack

* 1st Heart Attack in those with High Triglycerides/Low HDL 2nd Stroke Cellular Aging

*  Depression (Major Depressive Disorder) Dementia/Alzheimer’s Disease, Inflammation ,Chronic Joint Swelling, Headaches, Prostate cancer.

In the USA and European Union, the average Omega-3 Index is 4-5%.

In Japan, the average diet is high in Omega-3 and the average Omega-3 Index is 9.5%.

In the USA, sudden cardiac death rates are about 20 times HIGHER than they are in Japan.

The importance of measuring your Omega-3 Index:

Omega Chart

In one study, the Omega-3 index was measured in 704 individuals, some were taking fish oil supplementation and some were not. Only 1% of the group not taking fish oil had an Omega-3 Index  of 8%.

However, in the group that was taking fish oil, only 17% had an Omega-3 Index above 8%.

83% of people in the study taking fish oil were NOT getting to goal!!!

Common fish oils don’t always supplement enough Omega 3.

Overall health can improve with a healthy omega index.  Heart disease is one area where omega-3s are known to benefit.  But there is also the fact that a healthy omega score slows down telomere reduction and cellular aging, limits cognitive decline and helps hold off Alzheimer’s and reduces overall inflammation levels in the body (thereby improving joint pain).

Inflammation is considered a major factor in all the diseases of aging and Omega 3 is involved in the process of reducing CRP (C-Reactive Protein) a major inflammation marker.  Omega 3 can help increase levels of HDL (good cholesterol) and lower readings of both triglycerides and PSA scores.

I use Athlete’s Best Omega 3 Supplement because it includes vitamin D, the anti oxidant astaxanthin  and a proprietary anti oxidant blend along with the krill oil and calamarine oil.

You can go on the Athlete’s Best website and pick up more information on the product.  A link is below.

This identical formula is being sold in gyms all over the country at much higher prices.

Dr. Jim has provided Gary Scott readers a $5 code which puts this price below even the normal price at the athletesbest website.

Plus this price includes free shipping in the USA.

This brings the per bottle cost down to below $1.00 a day at $44.95 for this premium product with premium ingredients.  Each bottle offers a 45 day supply of product.

A 90 day supply is $79.90 with free shipping which brings the cost per day even lower.  Gary Scott readers receive a 10% discount using the code GARYSCOTT10.

Since it takes roughly 90 days for red blood cells to go through a complete cycle users really need to take the product (or any supplement for that matter) for at least 90 days to get the maximum benefit.

A 90 day supply is less than $.95 a day for a product that  provides a superior and proprietary omega 3 formula, the Astaxanthin, the vitamin D and the anti oxidant blend.
