Every Monday, I pull out a meaningful quote from one of the great books or articles I'm reading and share it with you. I invite you to look for inspirational words in what you read and share them each week in the comments.
But this one will be pretty short. I think it is amazing. And interestingly, the first time I read this was when it was quoted in Nourishing Traditions on page 490.
Raw honey is noteworthy for having considerable plant amylase. The amylase does not comes from the bee but is a true plant enzyme, concentrated from the pollen of flowers … If you wish to predigest a starchy food, such as bread, spread some raw honey on it. The moment the honey and bread come into contact, the honey enzyme starts predigestion; and as you chew more digestion takes place. If the bread with its honey-enzyme coating is allowed to stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before you eat it, there will be less work for salivary amylase.
Isn't that incredible? Another of God's wonders.
What do you think? Please share in the comments – and if you're quick on the draw, I'd love for you to share a snippet of something you read this week that inspired (even angered!) you this week. Be sure to state the title and author, and/or give a link if appropriate.
