So I've been having this internal debate with myself for... a few months, now - but I keep feeling really pulled towards eating more grains again. I have no idea why! I feel like my brain is telling me that I shouldn't *need* them, but my body keeps urging me to have rice, oats and home-made bread.
And, it's not that I'm having cravings, I really don't have cravings much at all anymore. We do allow ourselves treats once a week at the store, but that's usually a gluten free cookie or a chocolate bar split between us. Nothing crazy. I don't feel cravey after those things.
But, when we are shopping, or when I'm making meals I keep thinking, "Oh, rice would be good with this." or "I'd like some oatmeal with breakfast".
Anyway, I got out my Nourishing Traditions and Wild Fermentation books and looked over all the grain chapters again. I decided to make a loaf of bread.
I had some organic unbleached white flour from making Rhyko play-dough, so I decided to just use that since I had it on hand.
I soaked it overnight in sauerkraut juice and then let it ferment with yeast for the better part of the day. I cooked it this afternoon and it is so tasty! With butter ;)
Funny enough, a real food blogger I follow on FB then posted something about Matt Stone and 180 Degree Health and so I was reading there. His thing is more about metabolism and that being too low carb can really mess with your metabolism. He's also a big 'no diet' proponent.
Anyway, baby calls... must go! Food for thought! ;)
