Today is the day to make a fresh start. Today is the day you have been waiting for to take control of your health. For some people, eliminating grains can be one of the most beneficial things they can do for their health. I know for me it is very important. But lately I have been falling off the wagon so to speak. Today I’m back. I hope you join me in taking this giant step forward. Let’s share information, support and recipes!
Here are the Rules:
For 28 days you are to avoid all grains. That includes; wheat, barley, rye, oats, buckwheat, corn, spelt, teff, kamut, quinoa, millet, amaranth, sorghum, triticale and rice. Grain-free starches that are acceptable are potatoes and beans.
Carbohydrates include fruits and vegetables so this is not a low carbohydrate diet. You can have as many fruits and vegetables as you desire. Additionally you can have beans and potatoes so you can include a starchy food with your meals if you desire.
If you are choosing to follow a low carb, grain-free diet, be sure to eat plenty of good fats with your proteins and vegetables. Even with the low carb version, you can have a lot of vegetables with your meals.
In order to participate in the Challenge and to receive my gift to you at the end, you must sign up for the Challenge Newsletter which I will send to you once or twice a week with information related to the Challenge. Please leave a comment on this page that you did so. There will also be information on some of my blog posts over the 28 days so you may want to subscribe to that as well in the upper right hand side bar (that is not required, however it is appreciated!)

On Thursday October 6 (opening Wednesday night), I will launch a linky carnival for grain-free recipes and articles that will be open for 28 days. Please share your great recipes and use that list for ideas for meals! Any grain-free recipe ideas will be greatly appreciated!
Please leave any comments or questions on this Signup Page for the duration of the 28 days. We can all come here for support and general sharing of information.
