Food for Energy – Spelt Bread Recipe – Bread Machine Recipe

Spelt grain is the ultimate food for energy. I discovered it while researching the Blood Type Diet as a means to help my husband eliminate frequent migraine headaches and to help me feel more energy and less fatigue.

In brief, Spelt is easily digested by all of the four blood types (O, A, B and AB). My husband is a Type O (carnivore) and I am a type A (vegetarian.) It wasn’t easy finding something we could both enjoy. For example, another highly beneficial grain is amaranth which he detests and can sniff out no matter how minute a serving I try to include!

Without further ado, here’s the recipe. I purchase the flour in 25lb bags from Purity Foods. This is also an economical addition to your diet. Get ready to enjoy many, many loaves and lots of waffles, cakes and cookies too!

Spelt Bread Recipe — Makes 2 Loaves

1 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 teaspoon yeast
3 Tablespoons Soy Powder
2 Tablespoons Canola Oil
1 teaspoon Turbino sugar
2 Tablespoons of Raw Honey
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
4 cups Spelt Flour

Spelt Bread Making Instructions:
1. Pour the water, honey and oil into the bread machine.
2. Mix the spelt flour, soy powder, turbino sugar and salt in a mixing bowl.
3. Pour flour mix into the bread machine on top of the liquids.
4. Make a “well” in the flour and pour the yeast into that well.
5. Turn ON the bread machine and run it through the “dough” cycle. (Do NOT let it cook all the way.)
6. Once the dough cycle is finished, pour the dough onto a floured table top and kneed into shape.
7. Butter or oil the bread pan and then put the shaped dough into it. Place in a warm spot.
8. Allow to rise for two hours.
9. Back for 30 minutes in a 375 degree oven.

Food for Energy – January 2011 Shopping List

Food for Energy: Vitamin and Mineral Supplements:

Magma Plus: Excellent article, Dr. Oz’s #1 Fat Cure, reminded me to start my day with this easy “greens” drink to lose fat and gain more energy. By easy I mean, easy. Add one heaping spoonful to a glass of water, stir and drink. When I have more time – maybe once a week – I follow Dr. Oz’s green drink smoothie recipe. (Dr. Oz’s recipe, between prep time and clean up, takes me about twenty minutes.)

Licorice Root Tea: According to Dr. Wilson, an adrenal fatigue expert, licorice is the herb best know for supporting healthy adrenal function. It is also soothes nervous stomachs, stress and helps decrease * hypoglycemia, a side affect of tired adrenals. Licorice is best taken as a tea because the candy usually contains too much sugar.

What is Hypoglycemia? Hypoglycemia is defined as an abnormally low level of sugar in the blood. Hypoglycemia symptoms include: fatigue, dizziness when standing up quickly, irrational mood swings (especially before meals), sugar cravings, headaches, depression and anxiety. Source:

Kelp Powder: Kelp is a variety of seaweed that is known to be the best natural source of trace minerals essential for healthy adrenal gland function. Per Dr. Wilson’s suggestion I created a spice mix, 50/50 sea salt and kelp, to season everything from my morning oatmeal to my favorite roasted chicken recipe.

Food for Energy: System —  NeilMed Sinus Rinse Kit

Believe it or not this was my Christmas present from my brother! I started using it once a day during the holidays and it has completely cleared out my chronic stuffy sinuses and the weekly migraine that went with them. (It has also eliminated the need for the costly migraine headache pain medication I had to take.)

Migraine headaches are a common cause of fatigue. Migraine manifests as Continue reading
