I dont know why gluten is getting a bad rap these days….?
There’s nothing medically proven that shows gluten being linked to heart disease, or anything else. Except with people who are allergic. Maybe its not gluten that we should blame…
This is just a theory (with some evidence), but i think gluten allergies are just one of the many consequences for eating over processed foods. humans have only recently begun messing with molecular structures in our foods. and now more and more people are discovering illnesses related to those foods. but for millennia we have been eating gluten, think of pasta, I mean really! pittas, sourdoughs, …. they’ve been there for a while.
As for homogenized milk, gm foods, hormone stuffed meat, over processed wheat: they have not.
So is gluten to blame?
Maybe its ourselves, or maybe our choice to make food something that it was never meant to be…
Shelf stable, flavorless, lacking vital enzymes, nutritionally barren, jetsetting, and ethically scary
That’s my rant today.
I was just so overcome by the beauty of tonights bread, I had to say something on its behalf.
