SEEDS ARE NO LONGER JUST FOR BIRDS!
Canary grass, Chia, hemp, Mila seeds gaining a whole new generation of fans. Those who believe that the birdseed are only for “birds” do not know the properties and multiple health benefits which are almost miraculous! I must say I was intrigued when I discovered all benefits deriving from its daily consumption, and decided to start testing its greatness on my own.
They are most nutritious and powerful on this planet. They are rich in high-quality vegetable protein. Five tablespoons of canary grass seed contain about 9 grams of protein – which is superior when comparing it to 1lb of meat protein. Further more birdseed protein is not harmful or difficult to digest, and is very good stable amino acid assimilation.
They have always been around for thousands of years but we’re only beginning to discover their immense benefits. Very few know that it can be a great benefit for human consumption. The seeds which are very similar to flaxseeds are shiny brown, (Del Alpiste) human grade (silica free). I buy them packaged whole grain then ground them in my magic bullet to sprinkle them over my salads, veggies or simply add them to my delicious smoothies and soups. They can be made into milk as well. (Recipe below on the page bottom)
Canary grass seed is one of the most powerful and nutritious seeds on earth because of its high content of enzymes, vegetable protein, amino acids, and antioxidants. Its antioxidant properties are very close to those found in Vitamin C. It also contains many enzymes, of which lipase is the most abundant.
Because of its high enzymatic content, canary grass seed helps to reduce the inflammation of internal organs such as the liver, kidney and pancreas, which has proved to be of great help for people with diabetes and cirrhosis. I did some serious research and here is what I found out:
- Helpful in weight reduction.
- Helpful in sleeping problems
- helpful to clean veins and arteries from harmful fats.
- Very powerful pancreatic regenerator.
- Helps in cases of gout, edema, gastritis and stomach ulcers.
- Ideal for hypertension.
- Provides muscle tone.
- Gets rid of fat deposits in the body, leading to a reduction of obesity and cellulite.
- Kills bacteria in the urinary tracts, thus reducing UTI’s, as well as kidney and gall bladder infections.
Its important to consume it raw, otherwise it looses its all properties when cooked. I also like to make milk out of it and drink it twice a day. First thing in the morning 30 minutes before my breakfast, and at night after the dinner. No other food should be followed after drinking the milk at night.
MILK ALPISTE RECIPE
Five spoons of alpiste seeds + 1liter of water (4 glasses)
Soak five tablespoons of canary grass seeds in pure water the night before. In the morning, remove the water that has been dipped, soaked and put the birdseed in the blender, you can add soy milk and fruit to taste or simply liquefy and birdseed’s milk sweetened with honey (no sugar), which is a nutritious milk and energy to start the day (morning) and to finish it.It is very important not to sweeten the milk with white sugar, which is very harmful and irritating on your body, besides destroying the enzymes and the powerful effect of this milk. You can add some cinnamon. Avoid refined sugar whenever you can, and if you have small children do not get used to the milk sugar or candy.
Eat and drink like a bird. Ready to give it a go?
