TheVoiceOfJoyce As the World becomes hot, our reliable grains, can’t withstand drought. These 5 ancient grains are mostly perennial and can be eaten whole, leaves and seeds, providing proteins and amino acids. Good food substitutes for diabetics and those who are gluten intolerant. What are these plants? Amaranth, Fonio, Pea grass ( black eyed peas), Kearnza and one annual root plant, Taro. Additionally, if you asked Israeli scientists 10 yrs ago , what to use to replace corn for ethanol, they’d recommend canola. The plants grow in the desert and don’t compete with any other food source. 10 yrs later, the Technion biologist, must have more innovations. I know for a fact, Israeli vegetables are grown in salivated water, giving them intense flavor. Farming and plantings can evolve to bring different and healthier tastes to our pallet. What was “ old” will be new to us and in many ways, more nutritious!
