  1. This is the hardest part for me to process. Recently I added chia and flax into my families diet for the extra nutrients/fat/amino acids, etc. It’s so hard to figure out the ‘right’ thing to do. I keep on adding stufff I think is going to be goid then find out it’s not and feel so defeated! (Soy, agave syrup, etc. over the yrs)

    1. Oh, another big one is sunflower seed butter! My 7 y/o is allergic to peanuts and tree nuts so she gets sunbutter sandwiches every day. 🙁

    2. I’ve gone through the exact same process over the years. I would think of it as healing in stages. I consider agave and soy to be leaps and bounds above high fructose corn syrup (or “corn sugar” as they’re calling it now) and fast food. They may not the most ideal of foods, but they’re way better for you than frozen, packaged diet dinners. I’d say you’re on the right track!

      I think adding in the seeds (preferably sprouted) once or twice a week should be fine. Focus on improving digestion, and you won’t need to reach as far or wide for good food choices. If you can properly break down and absorb the nutrients in everything you eat, then you’ll notice a big difference without reaching for superfoods (and give your pocketbook a break in the process).

  2. So how do you get the nutrients that grains have if you don’t eat grains. And it’s even more challenging when your nursing. I have to nourish my baby. So how do I do that?

    1. There are no nutrients exclusive to grains. You can search whfoods.com for other food sources of the nutrients you are looking for and consume larger amounts of those foods. Eating a wider variety of food will help to ‘fill in the blanks’ that many of us deal with when eating a diet of only a few foods. Grain-free diets are temporary for some as they heal and a life-long way of life for others. It’s all based on bioindividuality and how you feel eating different foods.
