Here are 10 tips for going grain-free. You can print my ten tips here.
Going grain-free is becoming more common, as many people are trying to focus on more healing foods.
Grains can feed strep bacteria, so by eliminating grains you eliminate the food source for strep and your symptoms get better.
Strep bacteria causes acne, ear infections, UTIs, GI conditions such as IBS and SIBO. We all have strep in our systems.
Grains are always a tough thing to eliminate. The gluten-containing grains are the most offensive – wheat, rye, and barley.
The grains that are safest to eat are millet and quinoa. The third best grain is short-brown rice.
You can definitely get good results from eliminating grains!
Yet, how do you do it?
Well, when you take a certain food out of your diet, you want to focus more on what you are going to add in – not what you are going to take out.
Focus on the positive aspects. Focus on the healing. You don’t want to focus on the negative aspects or on restriction.
First, you want to eat more potatoes. Potatoes are the closest plant food to grains. They are nutrient-dense, nurturing, and satisfying.
Have them more than once a day, if needed, to keep up your calorie count.
Additionally, potatoes are very grounding. They have a high lysine content which is anti-viral. Everybody loves potatoes!
So, make potato cakes, roasted fries, mashed potatoes, tater tots, potato waffles, hashed browns – everything you can think of!
