Less is Better, Right?

16 Dec

If you spend 5 minutes with us, you know we have a great dislike/hate/loathing for gluten. Gluten is a protein found in most doughs for baked goods. Now it’s up to you to either believe my thoughts about gluten or go do your own research to see if you believe this is true. In very simple terms, gluten does this bad thing where it essentially tears little holes in the lining of your stomach. Then you get something called “leaky gut,” which is what it sounds like…your gut is leaking out into the rest of your insides. Gross, right? There’s lots of research that shows a lot of the health problems we face these days are correlated with this gluten consumption. So we’ve removed gluten completely from our diet. Here’s what gets me. If you believe this to be true, then why would you continue to consume gluten? Several people have “limited” or “cut back” on their gluten consumption, telling me that less has to be better. Well, sure. You’ve got fewer or smaller holes in your gut, but let me give you this comparison that I stole from the Whole 30.

If there were pee in your water, would you feel better about there being less pee in it?

      Yeah. We never cheat with gluten. Only dairy and Mexican food, really.
