Is Grain Good For Us…Really?

Anyone who knows me has rolled their eyes at my back and forth when it comes to low carb living.  I get back on the wagon, I feel better….then, I want cake.  It’s a constant do over and it really drives me buggy.

The last few weeks I gave up trying to go low carb and just counted my calories.  I do notice my clothes loosing their snake tight grip, but just a little.  And, I feel like crap.  Again.

Yesterday I was reading the headlines and came across this video from FoxNews.com:

Go ahead and check it out.  I’ll wait.

I think I’ll be getting the book.

After seeing the video, I shared it on Facebook.  A very wise friend of mine commented on the biblical view of wheat.  That sent me hunting for the translation of wheat in the scriptures.  Sometimes the difference between what we get in todays Bible and the original text can be like night and day.  So I Googled “wheat in the Bible”.

This is the site that came up:

After reading her post on grains in the Bible, I began to tool around and read more of her posts.  She is amazing.  Her site breaks it all down quite simply and shows how to make the switch to no grain a no brainer.

My advice?  Check it out.  Research.  Ask questions.  Then, try it, if you like.  For 40 years my brothers and sisters on this rock have felt bad, grown unhealthy, and have grown large.  The answer is out there.  This may me the key, or it may just be another door to be opened, one room closer to the truth.  My grandma ate a lot of bread.  I eat a lot of bread.  I don’t want colon cancer.  She didn’t either.  For her, I seek the truth. (Cue orchestra.)
