Thanks for all your excellent posts over the years.

Rye is my favorite grain for rejuvalic too. I find that grinding the sprouted rye releases much more of the nutrients in the seeds making for a very tasty lemony drink + only a few table spoons of grain is needed for quarts of rejuvalic.

Sproutman

Thanks for the video!

Also, could you say more about the sprouted green peas that are also in the vieo?

What kind of peas are they?

Do you painstakingly shell each one by hand?

I wonder if they ever sell raw peas at any stores.

Even when they say "raw", I just kind of assume they are cooked just like they say "raw" for nuts that are steamed.

Maybe I'll make a separate thread on that.

peas are such a great source of protein

They are snow peas.

No shelling needed. Pea microgreens are the easiest and less labour intensive to grow.

Lots of peas are sold online for microgreens.

Rye is good for rejuvalic, but it can make the ferments rot easier also imo. Wheat and barley are also good.

For the last several months l have used quinoa for rejuvalic. It makes a nice tasting ferment.

As of yesterday l just started to make soy bean rejuvalic, and next week l may use some old nuts to make nut rejuvalic.

When there are old seeds left over l make rejuvalic from those and use them up.


Yes, grinding the seed would be potent. Actually, I recall reading some science that stated that non sprouted seed lead to more probiotics being produced than from sprouted seed.

The major problem with fermented foods and rejuvelac is that there is no easy way of knowing if the ferment is good or bad

Tai:
Really? I follow Sproutarian Man's recipe for rejuvelac and when it's good, it's really GOOD and also you can feel the vitamins and antioxidants.

But when it's bad, there is a bad smell and strange taste.

The difference between good and bad rejuvelac is striking.

Yes, you will get bad batches sometimes. Brian Clement said it's because of various bacteria in the air, such as if someone sneezes, etc.

With fermented seed products, if you use a specific culture, you will know what it's supposed to taste like. I never made a bad seed yogurt using commercial probiotics. After a few days or a week in the refrigerator, the top of the fermented seed yogurt turns color and will go bad.

The next thing I want to make is my own natto.

Correct they taste different the good and the bad ferment.

But after such hard work I do not like to throw away the BAD ferment.

And I kill myself. God have mercy.

The BAD ferment must be of some good use.

Life is not that perfect after all.

Satan does exist.

Tai:
I either feed animals or compost undesirable food, so it's not really being wasted. Whenever I get a bad coconut (maybe 1-2 out of 9 young coconuts are bad), I give the water to my favorite plant/tree. The water is nutritious, so it's going to another life who won't get hurt from the spoilage. I open the coconuts and let the squirrels eat the meat. They eat questionable coconut meat. If they had better food, they wouldn't eat it, but there are some starving squirrels out there, so they do eat it.

Regarding sprouted rye...I never fed that to animals, but I am sure some animal would eat it. Some birds will eat cooked potato but not raw. I wonder about sprouted fermented wheat/rye. Worst case scenario, if no animal would eat the rye, I would give it to worms in a worm farm. Many microgreens growers have small worm farms.

Hi Sproutarian Man,
Good video, and hopefully you will make condensed videos of all those topics in the future, so people can have their choice of short or long versions.

I know you have been against using ads, but it seems that with such nice pictures on your website, somehow your site could generate revenue by featuring such unique content. Instead of one page of pictures, you might have several pages arranged by the individual seed/sprout.

P.S. I much prefer unsprouted poppy seed butter to poppy seed yogurt. Just mentioning because I just saw it on your website. I have done both several times and I just prefer the butter. The melanger does a better job micronizing the seeds than does the sprouting-vitamix method EXCEPT if you happen to have viable seed that actually sprouts. But if the seed can't sprout, then I prefer the melanger.

Personally I would prefer to see you physically through video though as to what this type of diet produces albeit the end results...

That is his choice and maybe he is just sharing his methods and not trying to sell anything.

To me it is not that interesting to watch when face is hiding. It will have been much better to not show any body part at all.

Here is fermented carrots video.

That doesn't prove much. you have to look at before and after, and also really listen to the person how they feel. Why does a person come to the raw vegan diet? My friend was a good-looking body builder who ate animal protein 3 times a day until he got liver cancer and kidneys had problems. You can't judge by appearance. Then he was forced to go raw vegan and shrank in size but cured his cancer. In my friend's case, who cares how he looked on the outside. What matters was how the inside of his body looked.


Let's discuss content and the facts.
Sproutarian man says that sunflower cheese/ferments contain K2. Okay, so what lab measures this and how do the k2 values compare to natto? If you were really going to try to get your k2 from sunflower yogurt, how much would you need to eat and how often? One of the reasons I didn't continue with the Lou Corona protocol was because I felt it was too much fat for me, in the form of yogurt. That's when I started to look at the what seeds are the most mineral packed and I started to eat poppy and sesame seeds because I would have to eat fewer calories this way.

When you look at Natto, you see that even with a bean, people are still worried about how many calories it has and it's effect on weight gain. for example, one cup of natto is almost 400 calories but at least it provides 30g of protein. Natto has 100 times more K2 than cheese.

So let's get real. How much k2 can the best rejuvelac produce compared to how much k2 the culture Natto produce? I bet Natto wins by a landslide. let's compare adding the natto culture to sunflower seeds to make yogurt/natto to adding the natto culture to soybeans? well soybeans have been used in asia for a long time because of the amino acid profile and minerals.

Anyway, Sproutarian man is trying to figure out how to make the raw vegan diet be healthy for people with these nutrient needs. He is trying his best using the tools of Ann Wigmore. She tried her best. Meanwhile Asia has a lot to offer, but it would mean adding a little cooked food in, which the purist doesn't want. But seeing how so many vegans have started eating crazy carnivore diets, people should be more open-minded to innocent, yet nutrient-packed whole food vegan foods

NOONE is going to "eat" the stuff that the Sproutarian is eating, it's extreme to a fault. Everyone is reverting back to animal foods right now for some reason at alarming rates...

I have seen some of your comments on the raw meat youtube sites. Yikes. You should learn more herbalism. Dive into herbs not meat is my suggestion.

But we have been talking about how raw food is keeping Annette Larkins so young and beautiful


How raw food is keeping Brian Clements so healthy and ageless


How raw food is keeping Gabriel Cousens so young and athelic


How raw food is keeping Lou Corona ageless


How raw food and sprouts had kept the Sproutman so healthy and vibrant


How the SAD is aging and destroying the body.
One of them is probably the mother but they all look the same aging bodies


We become the food we eat. There is no separation between inside and outside.
The outside is the reflection of the inside. Of the food we put in and the thoughts we put out.

It is the Sproutarian Man right not to show his face but if he is devoting so much effort on raw food, ferments, and other rare techniques would not it be good for us who are still searching to see the results on his body? Some people want to remain private and that is understandable but it also gives the impression when you are only showing parts of your body that you are hiding something.

If you're reading my quotes you would know that I fully advocate herbalism in every way. I believe that tonic herbs are the cornerstone of ANY diet. If you were reading my quotes you would also hear me cautioning the meatheads that cannibalism is right around the corner and that shunning fruit is a BIG MISTAKE and inquiring how often they are @#$%& etc. etc. etc.

I have an OPEN mind and am not convinced whatsoever that veganism raw or not is the ULTIMATE diet, in fact, there is too much evidence that it is NOT. Sure the standard American pics posted above are horrific, but that's not necessarily from meat, it's processed junkfood. Post pics of Aborigone's and other healthy tribal people. Cousens is a hot mess and spacey as hell and boasts about his strength while having none. Lou Corona would look his age without the hair dye and shaving his grey beard off, like Rothkranz. Sproutman looked at least his age RIP. Viktoras, nuff said. Clements is pudgy and hides his body in a suit, not very natural...

Give me a break, Nunativs. Lou Corona does not dye his hair. And some people genetically are gifted that way. You have to look at the other family. And if he is the only one in his family like that, consider the extra effort he put into his mind and heart cultivation on top of his detoxification on top of his diet. It's why most raw fooders haven't achieved that.


Brian Clement is pudgy because he is short, which is surprising because he looks taller in videos. He doesn't need that many calories. he probably needs a certain amount of food to get his protein and other essential nutrients in so the calories add up and he puts extra pounds on. However, his physique and youth and brain health for his age are undeniable. The only fault I see on him is not his weight but his posture. Who cares if he is pudgy?

I never met Cousens in person, so I won't comment on him.

Nunativs, I think it is impossible for any diet to be considered the ultimate because the planet has such diverse climates and soils and growing conditions. Rather than quibble over what theoretically is the ultimate, many people have to just figure out how to get in enough food to avoid malnutrition or starvation. I have been helping to feed the homeless in my area and it's taken me out of any remaining elitist diet mentality. People have to do the best they can given how many resources they have accessible to them. California and Florida happen to be a cornucopia for vegans, which is where Lou, Brian and Annette live. Time for you to accept that there are some healthy vegans.

Keep in mind that there have been several women who have worked at Hippocrates and have reported that most of the leaders and lecturers there have been seen eating animal foods "behind the scenes".
Start here:
Raw Women Wisdom

I want to believe, I've invested most of my LIFE into this stuff. I'll give you John Rose, he looks healthy physically, MENTALLY, not so sure....

For me it is not that important because I can see and feel the effects of raw living food on myself like many other sincere seekers of vibrant health. It is not the "I heard or read some reports...".

Everything in life, there is the good approach and the wrong approach to doing it.

30 years of the wrong approach on the SAD cannot be wiped out with a week of fasting and juicing. It is a complete life style change.

There are those on cooked diet who can also live a healthy and long life when they follow the proper approach.

For me many of John Rose videos are very informative on what he believe to be true and he looks healthy.

Okay, let's hear it. Please summarize. That lady's videos are too long. No time to watch her videos. What leaders exactly? I thought there are only two leaders at HHI, Brian and Anna Marie Clement. Who is eating what? I will be surprised if Brian was ever caught doing that. He promotes veganism.
