Who loves bread, pasta, and pastries?!
Well me too! I think that goes without saying for most people. But some things you should be aware of before treating yourself to a generous serving of spaghetti and meatballs.
Do you have a foggy head, bloated belly, the inner tube around the middle – consider ditching your wheat.
Why is this food such a terror to our bodies when spread with butter, tastes so delicious?
Because the wheat we eat today is not our grandmother’s wheat. Our traditional wheat, such as Einkorn, Emmer, and other wild strains of wheat of long ago has been replaced by higher-yielding crops resistant to disease, drought, and heat in order to feed the masses. (1) This wheat has been genetically altered for this purpose. (1)
In addition to the altering of this grain, we also spray these crops with glyphosate. (2) Glyphosate is a known carcinogen in addition to being a chemical which not only alters our own gut microbiome but over time can create disturbance in our gut lining. (3) Our gut lining contains approximately 70% of our immunity. (4) The bottom line, the consumption of wheat, because of genetic changes and chemicals used on crops, has shown to be connected to many chronic diseases such as Celiac Disease, Insulin Resistance, Heart Disease, psoriasis/eczema and more.
So you might be saying to yourself, “I am going to go gluten-free”
BUT WAIT! Not so fast, the problem with gluten-free bread – it is still made with gluten-free WHEAT – which is still the genetically modified version and contains glyphosate.
Where to start:
- Consider using alternatives like almond flour, coconut flour for cooking.
- Also, replace wheat and opt for quinoa, wild rice, brown rice.
Remember, there is no shortcut to health – small changes over time, long term wellness!
