personally i can't have wheat because i have that allergy....but, what i recommend for you to do and, others aswell(right Jess)..is to add a little more variety to your diet..people eat to much wheat in one day, yes we need our grains but there are so many to choose from..example
there are so many to choose from
this will add more variety to your diet. There are to many people sensitive to wheat in the USA..and, they are not aware of it, example: acid refux disease is one of them, Arthritis is another..etc..if you where to eat wheat bread for breakfast and, then not have bread the rest of the day, this is not that bad..the problem is that wheat is everywhere...for example
toast for breakfast(wheat)
sandwich for lunch(wheat, and, cold cuts contain wheat too)
cookies for snacks(wheat)
pasta for supper(wheat)
flavored chips for tv time(wheat, flavored chips contain wheat)
thats way to much wheat(gluten) in one day..no wonder lots of people have acid refux..etc..
its best to make a more variety in you diet, for example:
toast for breakfast
corn bagel for lunch with an egg
soy cookies or, rice cookies..if you wanna snack on those(best snacks are raw veggies)
rice pasta for supper, or soy pasta..whatever..
and, if you like to snack at nite then you can have rice cakes or regular chips..or fruits, or nuts, or veggies(baby carottes, celery sticks, apple sauce)
the day you'r gonna have pizza, make sure that that will be your only wheat intake that day..for example:
corn bagel for breakfast with an egg and, fruits
then pizza for lunch(wheat)
for snacks you can have some rice cakes with cheese..
for supper, chicken breast with steamed veggies
tv snacks, wheat free pretzels..nuts, fruit cup, grapes, blueberries..etc
i have lots of energy without this nasty wheat, yet im very calm..
remeber to shift with your grains, you will feel alot better as you do this..and, it will pay off in the long run..I promise you
