Grains the Holy Grail???
It seems the Present Monster may soon be the Past Monster…at least for a few weeks. I’ve been eating clean 100% the last two and a half days. Honestly it hasn’t been that blah. I’ve even been somewhat excited about my food even though it’s not pizza. Except I could have done without last night’s broccoli. I’m learning more and more about my body. Granted this is taking a looong time. I would have really appreciated a users manual with step-by-step instructions on how to get my unique body chemistry to operate at optimum levels (and not store fat). A button to switch off cravings would have been just splendid but once again God is letting me learn through trial and error. My grains have been very low the last two days and I’ve noticed an increase in energy. Not long ago I cut down on grains and I felt the same. Hmmm….am I seeing a pattern? Or is it a coincidence? We’ll see. From what I’ve read, some people handle grains just fine and others function better with low or zero grain intake. It has something to do with the enzymes and digestion. From my understanding their are different ways of preparation, soaking and sprouting, that make them easier to digest as well. I think. Anyway, I’m not convinced grains are the devil but I also question their current holy grail status. I’m still researching…mostly when I’m trying to talk myself out of devouring an entire package of tortillas. In the meantime, I’d love to hear your take on grains? Have you ever limited grains? If so how did you feel? Are you wanting to strangle me through the screen for daring to question their sanctity?
