Grain free diet: Would you ever go grain free?

Grain free diet: Would you ever go grain free?

Grain free diet? If you had asked me about “going grain free” as a youth I probably would have given you a really weird look. Let’s be honest, I really like grains. I love sourdough bread, biscuits, and other comforting grainy goodness. But it seems like lately more people are diving into a grain free diet. And with good reason.

Why you might want to consider going grain free.

  • All grains are high in phytic acid. These anti-nutrients block important minerals like calcium and magnesium. Traditional societies would always soak, sprout, or sour their grains which would help eliminate the phytates. Unfortunately, almost all commercial grain foods are not properly prepared. One major reason why more and more people seem to struggle with them.
  • Along with the phytic acid, grains also have gluten and lectins which can lead to inflammation. Again, its seems like more and more people are “gluten” intolerant and find a lot of relief when skipping out on grains.
  • Improperly prepared grains can damage the lining of your gut. When our food is not broken down properly, larger food particles can be released into the blood stream. Our body sees this food as an invader and attacks accordingly. If you’ve heard of “leaky gut” you know what I’m talking about. Guess what? Many food allergies and diseases have been attributed to leaky gut. Getting rid of the grains could be a major step in gaining back your health.

Of course, it’s also interesting to read up on the countless testimonials of how good people feel when they kick the grain habit. I’ve been thinking about doing an elimination diet (I’ve had this small annoying eczema-like rash on my leg that just won’t go away, and I’m pretty sure it’s food related). This is why I’m so excited about the new Grain Free Cooking Class!

    Yes, I am presently following the Wheat Belly way of eating. I’ve been grain free for 2.5 weeks and have lost over eight pounds. I have many health issues that can be helped by getting off grain. I am also off my diet drinks for 3.5 weeks. I’m feeling so much better already. I am a carboholic, but haven’t really missed my breads, chips, etc. I feel I am going to get healthy for the first time in many years.

    Hey there, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your blog site in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, fantastic blog!
