Let’s sit down together and have the uncomfortable talk about grains…
I’m gonna say some stuff here that you may not want to hear, stuff that goes against what you’ve been made to believe is healthy. However, if you read the following with an open mind then you’re going to come away with a life changing truth about truly healthy eating that will transform your body. It has certainly transformed mine.
Last week I posted the quote below from Mark Sisson, author of The Primal Blueprint, on my facebook page that raised many questions.
“There are no requirements in human nutrition for carbohydrates. Grains are totally unnecessary.”
So if we aren’t supposed to be eating grains then why are ‘whole grains’ said to be so healthy for us? Why do whole grain bread product have a heart healthy stamp on them? Why does the doctor tell us to eat plenty of whole grains to help lower our cholesterol and increase our fiber intake?
Here is the argument against the consumption of grains in bullet form:
I don’t know why grains are still considered a health food darling while the research against gluten and processed carbohydrates piles up.
I too have spent years being duped into thinking that brown rice and whole grain bread was benefiting my body, when in fact it was responsible for the weight I couldn’t lose and the indigestion I felt. The day that I stopped eating grains my body naturally began to shed off extra pounds.
Ok, now that we got that talk over with, let’s make some low carb, grain-free rice
1 head cauliflower
1 tablespoon coconut oil
dash of sea salt
dash of black pepper
Wash cauliflower, discard the leaves, and chop into small pieces. Grate the pieces with a food processor.
In a large skillet heat the coconut oil over medium. Add the shredded cauliflower. Saute for about 5 minutes, until tender. Season with salt and pepper. Serve as you would traditional rice.
