Wheat Belly holiday swaps

fixings. Extreme shallow depth of field.

Yes, you can have pumpkin pie!

Some people worry that, by following the Wheat Belly lifestyle, they will have to suffer through a holiday dinner of dry turkey meat and lettuce leaves and miss out on all the traditional tasty dishes. But that is simply not true. You can enjoy a glorious, delicious, and healthy Christmas dinner, for instance, while living the Wheat Belly lifestyle. But, in order to preserve your health and not gain, say, 3 pounds from the holiday feasting, there are some easy swaps you can use to replace unhealthy holiday staples with a healthy and Wheat Belly-compatible alternative.

Living the Wheat Belly Lifestyle may take a bit of effort, but the results are so worth it. You must think before you order your meals. Hidden sources of wheat and corn by-products are lurking in some unlikely places.

You may have thought that by skipping the bread/sandwich and choosing the soup-n-salad would ensure that your meal was safe. Think again: Many commercial “cream” sauces and soups get their creamy texture from starch, not real cream. And that starch often comes from wheat flour or corn starch. In fact, most commercial soup manufacturers literally use countless tons of wheat every year to produce canned soup.

Are there raccoons in your garden?

Imagine that you are planning to plant a garden in springtime. You clear the soil of grass and weeds, sift out the rocks, fold in some manure or composted material to enrich the soil. You then plant seeds for squash, peppers, maybe some heirloom carrots. You water the garden and then wait for the seeds to sprout, hoping for a glorious bounty of veggies in a couple of months.

But you forgot that there are raccoons, rabbits, and deer in the neighborhood, creatures eager to eat your work. Sprouts come up, leaves, then young vegetables—only to disappear overnight after a raccoon or rabbit feast.
