I recently finished up a Whole30 (you can read more about the program here), and I thought I would give soaked oatmeal a try. You know, just to see if I could tolerate it. As an experiment. Science!
I made a lovely soaked and baked gluten free oatmeal with no refined sugar, just some applesauce and a touch of honey to sweeten. My daughter was beside herself with excitement, one of her favorite things that I used to make was “hard oatmeal”. I ate it for breakfast yesterday and today.
Today I know, without any doubts whatsoever, that grains are not for me. Joint pain and fatigue set in late this morning and have not let up yet. So, I will continue on as an experiment of one. Happily grain-free.
Read this article on the Whole9 website, it tells you a bit about why grain-free might be right for you too.
