if you listen to much of the nutritional talk
currently out there, you might think that it
was sent by demons to destroy the digestive
systems of mankind!
the thing...it's not evil.
is just gluten...
there are varying levels of intolerance to it,
ranging from hardly any at all staight through
to full-blown Celiac disease (where gluten causes
MAJOR digestive issues).
be straight up with you...I DO believe that
most people would do well to eliminate or dramatically
reduce their intake of foods that have gluten
in them...wheat is by far the biggest culprit.
wife noticed a BIG difference when she dropped
gluten, yet she's never been diagnosed with
any formal intolerance to it.
very rarely eat gluten myself. I don't have
big reactions to it, but I know what it can
do internally to the digestive system even when
there isn't a big sensitivity.
ARE three big problems I have with gluten-free
1. Highly-Processed Gluten-Free Foods Aren't
reminds me of the low-carb craze that happened
a few years back. A glut of low-carb junk foods
flooded the market...low-carb cookies, chocolate
bars, chips...you name it.
people bought the stuff because it was low-carb
which meant it was "healthy," right?
the same thing with a lot of the gluten-free
foods on the market. Just because they're gluten-free,
doesn't mean they're any good for you.
2. Foods That
Were Always Gluten-Free Are Now Pumped
Up as Gluten-Free
supposed I can't blame a company for wanting
to jump on an easy bandwagon like this because
yes...that bottled water you're selling IS gluten-free.
it always WAS gluten-free. This is not a new
thing. And yes, awesome...gluten-free chicken.
3. Some Gluten-Free Foods Taste HORRIBLE
bread is the biggest culprit that I've come
across, but it doesn't end there. There are
lot of other gluten-free foods that I've tasted
that are just as cringeworthy.
the thing...eating gluten-free DOESN'T have
to be like this. You
can have delicious, healthy wholesome foods
that don't taste like sand in your mouth.
example, check these out...totally gluten-free
and VERY tasty:
Can't Be Cereal" Cereal
Zucchini Bison Boats
Looks pretty good to me... :)
