This worked for me.
Since I was a child, I've suffered from lack of physical energy.
When I first read the Essene Gospel of Peace in my 20's, it seemed to offer a way toward a more healthy physical body.
Now I am 68 years old have have been trying to live on a raw food diet on and off for about 30 years.
But during all that time, I could never continue past 6 months because I would become protein deficient and even more fatigued than usual. This was because I was unable to get complete protein (unable to get all 11 amino acids) from bean sprouts alone. I tried adding organic wheat sprouts (as described in the Essene Gospel of Peace) but the sprouts always had so much rubbery gluten they were nearly inedible. Even after being chewed for a long time, modern wheat sprouts had the consistency of chewing gum.
I could not understand this because the Essene Gospel of Peace refers to wheat as "the most perfect among all seed-bearing herbs".
This went on for years.
Then I discovered Einkorn wheat. Einkorn is the original un-hybridized wheat from old testament times.
It contains a completely different kind of gluten from modern wheat. Einkorn wheat is very easy to digest and never turns into "rubber".
At first, I bought very high quality organic Einkorn from Jovial and Breadtopia but the percentage of wheat berries that sprouted was pretty low because they both use relatively harsh milling machines which nick and scar the wheat germ. Their Einkorn is excellent for baking but not very good for sprouting.
After a few years, I discovered Bluebird Grain Farms in Winthrop Washington. Nearly 100% of the Bluebird wheat berries sprout. The Bluebird people say this is because they use a very gentle milling machine with soft milling surfaces (similar to the hand milling done in Bible times).
My decades long search for complete protein by combining wheat sprouts with bean sprouts is now a success. My raw food diet now has protein that includes all 11 amino acids. The diet feels very balanced and satisfying. Finally, I feel I'll be able to stay on the Essene diet for many years
and hopefully for a life-time. The balanced protein and what ever other unknown nutrients Einkorn has (being the most perfect herb) make it very easy to eat the Essene way every day.
For any people who are attempting a diet similar to mine,
I would recommend Einkorn wheat from Bluebird Farms. Every Einkorn kernel sprouts. And the sprouts that have absolutely no rubbery gluten and dissolve easily when being chewed. I now eat once each day. Each day I make a salad containing Einkorn sprouts, mixed bean sprouts, organic red leaf lettuce, a finely chopped organic fuji apple, one avocado (or sometimes 1/2), . The most important are the sprouts and lettuce.
The avocado make it unnecessary to eat less healthy kinds of fats. Other things can be added but try to keep the salad simple.
It would probably be unwise to attempt to go directly from a conventional meat diet to this kind of diet.
Remember the Gospel of Peace says "don't work the angles too hard".
Peace be with you.
