The day’s first meal is prime time to improve the handling of everything coming our way. Be smart, choices made affect mental, physical, and emotional performance. Breakfast is commonly the most nutritious daily meal. Those who eat breakfast, eat healthier and tend to eat less food overall.

For enduring high performance, start with pure whole grain (WG). It centers one and results in better judgment. Commercial WG, grain reassembled to meet an artificial federal definition, does not.

Minimally processed whole grain cereal used to be a mainstay in every American home. WG oats, wheat, corn, rice, millet, buckwheat, rye, and barley, including cracked and flaked forms, were popular begin-the-day-right fare. The shift away from this and the deterioration of American health seem to show a connection.

With large marketing budgets in the 1930s, refined sugar and chemical colored cereals began to appear. By the mid-1950s they had become the cereals of choice in America. Whole grain food and cereal had tumbled out of favor by the late 1950s. Entertaining, cheap, nutrient stripped, shelf stable cereal laced with refined sugar and toxins led to a physical and mental disaster. Refined, hyper-sweet, ready-to-eat, entertainment cereals replaced whole grain and porridge. Collusion with the dairy industry in accomplishing this is evident.

Today, overly processed, nutrient depleted, sugar rich, chemically contaminated cereal is found in nine out of ten American homes. The ‘refined’ grain aspect of them has had protein and fat removed along with fiber, vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients diverted for use in animal feed. Excessive salt, chemicals for color and flavor, thousands of processing chemicals, pesticides, fungicides, bleaches, fumigants, deodorizers, and residual agricultural chemicals create a malaise of stress inducing and egregious health issues. Devious GMOs are now a thrust in the cereal shenanigans.

Authentic Whole Grain

Macrobiotic and natural food inspired awareness of the multi-dimensional benefits of whole grain is a step toward common sense. People are attracted to ‘ancient grains’ for unique nutritional values and as a reaction to nutritionally empty, high calorie, chemical laced cereal and food. The severely diminishing nutrient content of hybrid grain, coupled with its ‘refinement’ demand that sources and methods of grain handling be reevaluated. Non-GMO, organic whole grain, such as kamut, spelt, quinoa, buckwheat, millet, teff, brown rice, rye, oats, popcorn, emmer, and wild rice are exciting, beneficial discoveries for people.

Surprising, rapid demand for ancient grain caused an immediate reaction from the monocrop food monopolists. They countered these positive social developments with sophisticated misinformation centered on the concept that grain was not good people food. Although this is true for the commercial refined grain category, that same grain is not good food for animals either. Growing demand for ancient whole grain continues despite hundreds of millions of people being intentionally misinformed in an industry/government scheme.
