There is no such thing as “healthy whole-grains”

We’ve been told for decades that whole grains are healthy, healthier than processed white flour products. The flawed logic of replacing bad with less bad has thrown off an entire generation of dietitians, physicians, and government agencies charged with providing nutritional advice who have all embraced the less bad whole grains, going as far as urging all of us to make them the dominant ingredient in diet every day.

Wheat Belly Holiday Recipes: Healthy Biscuits and Gravy

Biscuits and gravy: the ultimate comfort food . . . one you thought you’d never have again!

The familiar dish of breakfast and holiday meals is recreated here with a delicious gravy that you can pour over freshly-baked hot biscuits. Because it contains no wheat or other unhealthy thickeners like cornstarch made with junk carbohydrates, there should be no blood sugar or insulin problems with this dish, nor joint pain, edema, acid reflux, mind “fog,” or dandruff—–life is good without grains!

Healthy and High Protein and Delicious Recipes? Yeah, We Love Those!

If you know me,  you know I love good food. I’m also a big fan of recipes that are high in protein. I enjoy cooking, and my friend, Elaine, does too, so I invited her to share a post on my blog today. I’ve known Elaine for about a year and a half, and throughout that time I’ve watched her consistently work toward being healthy and strong, and she has more self-discipline in eating and exercise than anyone else I know. We’re different in some ways, but we love some of the same things as well. I’m so thankful to have a friend like her, and I’m also excited about sharing this recipe with you today. Here’s what Elaine had to say about her recipe: “This recipe uses a great new brand of pasta called Banza. Instead of pasta made from wheat flour, Banza is made from chickpea flour. This gives the pasta a lot more fiber and protein than usual pasta. The pasta is slightly chewier than regular wheat pasta, but it’s still great.

Healthy Low-Carb Barbecue Sauce

Here’s a recipe for a Low-Carb Barbecue Sauce I modified slightly from the original I shared in the Wheat Belly 30-Minute Cookbook.

You may have noticed that nearly all commercial barbecue sauces at the supermarket contain high-fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, or sugar as primary ingredients, converting your tasty barbecued ribs or chicken into a toxic sugar exposure.

This low-carb version yields 8 grams net carbs per 1/4 cup due to the carbs from tomatoes and the bit of molasses. (The molasses is optional, but does add some extra depth of flavor.) Spread on ribs, chicken, or burgers that contain zero carbs, and you can enjoy your barbecued dish without any concern over sugar exposures.
