I had heard about how easy it was to make rejuvelac at home a while back, it’s taken me a while to test it out and I’m glad I did. I love discovering natural new ways to keep myself fit and healthy. I’m still trying to heal my gut as my body for 30+ years has absorbed asthma medication, steroid creams and intense pollution to name a few. I feel the the more I learn about myself the more I heal. Rejuvelac is just another great way for me to get good bacteria into my system and it tastes pretty refreshing too!
We are all so different, so what might work for me might not work for you. Even though our bodies are different our mind’s aren’t, we are all born not knowing anything, but through experiences it shapes who we are and what we believe. We all have the power to change and better ourselves and live in harmony with the Earth and each other. I believe we can achieve this by living in gratitude, loving yourself, being compassionate and living with an open heart in your purpose. Once you start to learn and love yourself, you start to see the bigger picture of how we are all connected and can help each other. Yes we are all connected, whether you believe it or not, we can together make positive lasting changes in the world and we are all capable of being amazing together if we so choose.
What is Rejuvelac?
A fermented beverage that is inexpensive, easy to make and deliciously refreshing. It’s a glass of good probiotics, vitamins B, K and E, proteins, and enzymes. It keeps your digestive system and intestinal flora happy and it can also be used as a starter for breads, yogurts, nut cheeses and sauces. As for flavour it’s has a lemony, zingy, earthy taste, perfect on a hot summer’s day to rehydrate and get goodness in. You can also use whole wheat, oats, rye, quinoa, barley, millet, buckwheat, rice and other types of grain to make it. How amazing it that! Not something you are going to find on your supermarket shelf.
How can one change help me?
Having the right mindset goes hand in hand with with also having the healthy body that radiates happiness. I found that when I started to change my diet, it also changed my thinking for the better. Never in my life have I wanted to help humanity, the restoration of this planet and to teach people there is a better way to live. The time for change is now, no matter how small, as no one else is living your journey. We need to change the way we live, the way we contribute to the earth because once we do we start to see all the beauty it holds. Things like stress, time, anxiety, attachments, being annoyed if things aren’t perfect or go according to plan, disappear and aren’t important anymore. By loving and caring for yourself, you start the process of living an extraordinary life filled with magical unexpected surprises.
How to make Rejuvelac from Quinoa
- Start with one cup of quinoa (you can use the other grains mentioned above). I found quinoa easy and had it in the cupboard. Place the quinoa in a glass jar, fill the jar with water and cover with a lid that has holes so it can breathe, you can also use a paper towel poke some small holes and use a rubber band.
- Soak the quinoa for 24 hours, then rinse two to three times a day until little sprout tails appear.
- Once this happens, let sit on the counter for 2-3 days without rinsing. You will notice that the water will go cloudy and little bubbles will start forming at the top. This is a good sign and means the fermentation process is happening. You can taste it and it should taste clean and fresh with a bit of a zing. Now you can drink the water by straining the Quinoa and store in a covered glass container in the fridge. It will keep for at least a week. With the Quinoa you can either reuse it to make a second batch, which will only take you one day or you can use it in your cooking as per normal.
