Grains are packed with nutrients, including protein, fiber, B vitamins, antioxidants, and trace minerals (iron, zinc, copper, and magnesium). Choosing right grains has been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and some forms of cancer.
Grains to enjoy:
- Wild Rice
Instead of wheat (whole or white) you can use spelt flour to make all your baked goods.
Grains to avoid:
Wheat is the most difficult grain to digest and should be avoided at all times. Wheat creates many blocks which increases inflammation throughout the body, especially in the digestive system.
Dr. Naram strongly recommends substituting any of the above mentioned grains/flours to be used instead of wheat. Due to its similarity in taste and texture to wheat, Spelt can be a good substitute for all forms of wheat. (*For people with gluten intolerance, spelt and rye should also be avoided in favor of other grains).
