I'm really thinking that I should not cut out grains completely... but I do know I need to cut them way back, and almost all if not all of them should be sprouted and/or fermented.
The thing is, I hardly have problems with anything else as far as food additions go. I've never had temptations to say... eat a disgusting factory made steak. And I do ok with sugar. Sometimes I want something sweet, and I use raw honey... which I'm thinking I really should not do too much of that too.
Anyhow, I have a real hard time getting over this grain addiction. Its like grains is what keeps me satisfied and gives me energy that I need. However, I know they are not good for me. While it gives me calories to burn (fuel), they often do not digest right, and they are highly acidic. I mean, people talk about meat being bad... I think a lot of grains can be just as bad.
And so I can eat all the veggies I want, and have tons of salads... then I'd still want to have a couple slices of bread. And often times, 4-5 slices. Its not good. And not to mention the oatmeal that I have most mornings (unless I have the ingredients to make a delish smoothie). And as for the bread... my mom makes it with 50% white and 50% wheat. The flour is probably rancid, and then she uses regular salt, soybean oil, sugar, yeast, etc. Although the sugar, oil, and salt is in small amounts... its still something I don't want to eat.
So, my option is to make my own sprouted wheat bread, and make my own sprouted wheat flour... and I think that's what I have to do. But then, I might just start eating tons of that and besides it being expensive, thats probably not a whole lot better then the regular, when consumed in excess.
So, I would appreciate what you have to say on this.
