So, what does this mean?

Well, basically no bread.

Why? Here are a few reasons:
- The Paleo Diet Solution (aka... How to Keep Feces Out of Your Bloodstream (or Lose 10 Pounds in 14 Days) )
- The Vegetarian Myth

Ummm... wha?

Ok, so, basically grains don't go down without a fight. And, their 'fight' tears holes in our intestines - letting all sorts of awful things through, causing inflammation, and making us feel gross. Oh, it can also lead to Celiacs and maybe even Diabetes.

Well, I'm a bit late on the latter, but haven't any urge to dabble in the former (I'm lucky that way, lots of diabetics also suffer from celiacs) and generally like to feel good.

Plus, I've ditched bread a few times in the past when my guts have felt a bit wiggy. Sticking to other foods feels... better? I don't know, introspection and/or observances of my own inner workings (intestinal or otherwise) is a weak point. Solution - install a window into my innards! Wait... no. The goal here is fewer holes in my guts, not one great big one.

So, yes, away with the grains. I'm still working on whether I can eat bran (*fingers crossed*) which hopefully won't contain any of the problematic grain elements, and... oh, yes, peas would be nice but I'm still puzzling out whether I can eat those. Corn too, but it's a no-no due to that zein stuff. Sheesh.

The good news is that uber-hippy 'sprouted grain' breads should be fine.

Why? Because grains, which are basically plant-eggs with a white, a yolk, and all the rest, convert into baaaaaaaaaaaby plants once they get wet enough to grow. This means that 'sprouted grain' stuff is like eating a plant, a plant that's too busy trying to grow to be able to fight back.

Ha-ha! Suckers...

Well, here's hoping at least. This sort of dietary-fu is so niche and non-standard that there really isn't a lot proving anything one way or the other.

Oh, I am also up waaaaaaaaaaay too late because I can't sleep for beans.

Anybody know a good PHP tutorial site for me to play with while I'm depriving myself of sleep?
