There you are – living happily in your bread-filled world – oblivious to everything but your love for all things bread. Waffles for breakfast, thick ham sandwiches for lunch, and mounds of spaghetti with a fresh loaf of crusty French bread for dinner. Dessert is a nice slice of cake. Ahh.
But then a strange phenomenon interrupts your breaded bliss.
A blog you enjoy encourages you to soak your grains or risk your health. You read an article that heralds the virtues of sprouted grains. A friend calls to say she’s discovered sourdough bread is the healthiest bread of them all.
Then several people you know tell you they’ve discovered they have a gluten allergy or celiac disease right after your mom emails to say she’s cutting grains out of her diet forever since they were never meant for human consumption.
Go ahead. I’ll wait while you run to the bathroom, scream into a towel, and then calmly come back so we can sort this all out. 🙂
What’s all the fuss about grains anyway? What do you believe?
