First, I want to emphasis how good I felt on the Bone Broth Diet even though I was not following it a 100%. I was having more fruit and sugars that the plan allows for (I know, I am weak!). Still, I felt better than I had in a long time. For this reason, I figured it would be a good time to test Einkorn flour. If you don’t know what Einkorn is, it is the only non hybridized wheat available today. It is dated back as far as 5000 years ago. Its protein, vitamin and mineral content is higher than any other grain. It won’t rise your glycemic index nearly as much as regular wheat and it bakes amazingly well! I have experimented with breads, cookies, pasta, pie crust, etc. It is just lovely all around! Unfortunately, I finally came to the conclusion that even Einkorn is off limit for me now. I tested it 3 days ago by eating only one small pancake and I have been suffering the consequence ever since. I have been feeling fatigued, and the brain fog won’t lift. I used to suffer for 2 days only after cheating with gluten, it looks like I am getting worse. No more gluten for me for at least a year! I have not decided completely swear off gluten because I believe gluten sensitivity is not natural, just like any other food sensitivity. Therefore it may be possible to heal it. I know gliadin is involved causing intestinal permeability (leaky gut) for everyone, even those who don’t seem gluten sensitive, but I think that there must be a reason for this. I mean, Jesus himself ate wheat! If it is as deadly as some make it sound, I don’t think he would have fed himself and his disciples using wheat (Luke 6:1). He is the Creator of the universe, he knows the human body more than anyone else.
And that leads me to the second point of this post: I decided to take a step back. I have been testing various diets non stop since January and I am running out of motivation. What I would like to do now is to stick to a whole foods gluten free diet and focus on my nutrient intake. I became an ambassador for an organization called Plexus last week, and I purchased a package calle Tri-Plex after listening to a series of amazing testimonies by people who cured all kinds of health problems with these products. I thought it would be worth a try. An update will be coming soon on that, but in the meantime, I also plan to post more on general health and lifestyle topics.
