All the cool kids are gluten intolerant!

There has been tons of news about the seemingly sudden rise (at least in awareness) of gluten and it’s very very negative effects on people. I’ve been asked a lot lately about my stance on it. I will NEVER pass judgement on anything without first knowing the facts. I didn’t know enough to have an opinion…now I do.

My official stance on grains and wheat and gluten:…BAD

Grains go through a serious amount of processing just to become bread in the first place (you probably won’t be walking in a field and see a loaf of bread growing there, right?) and for that matter cooking food changes it from a whole food but jeez we’d never eat if we got too strict either!

I obviously will not stop eating grains/bread cold turkey today (I actually never keep bread around the house. I’m not sure why that is. I like it) and I’m all about being a realist. No one likes a fanatical health nut 😉

But I have had friends throughout my life that did not share my love affair with food. They had the opposite reaction. Eating to them was a choir required to live. Food hurt them afterwards and they could never really figure out why. I believe those people were gluten intolerant before we had a name for it.

Check out these links from Mark’s Daily Apple. (This is my FAVORITE site on health and wellness – btw)

BE WELL…
