Here we are at the end of what may have been a long and challenging 28 days without grains. How do you feel? If you are intolerant of grains you are probably feeling better. Some people take longer than others to feel a difference. Some people will not feel any difference until they "challenge" their bodies with a significant portion of grains after having eliminated them for a month. This is the perfect time to do that.

There are many problems with the consumption of grains in our food supply. As I have mentioned in previous articles, most if not all grain products are not properly prepared by soaking or sprouting the grains before use in order to reduce phytic acid. Another problem is that grains are hard to digest for many people, especially people with damage to the gut lining which is more common than you would think. But perhaps the most pressing problem is the inflammatory nature of grains.
