Default What am I missing?

I feel like Don Quixote

grains are not a natural human food when looked at through the lens of evolutionary biology
- grains contain gluten
- grains cannot touch the nutrient density of fruit/veg
- grains contain anti nutrients
- grains inhibit nutrient absorption
- grains produce systemic inflammation in the body in some people.
- grains are acidic and leech calcium to buffer the acidity
- People usually drop allot of fat when cutting grains from there diet.
- people often report more aches and pains when returning to grains after cutting them.

Anybody have any thing to add

They are damn yummy when pulverized, and cooked in fat to produce wither a donut or corn chips. At least I've heard that stuff tastes good....

When you tell people you don't eat gluten (and then explain what gluten is) WAY too many people recoil and say (looking at you as if you are a freak), "But what do you EAT???!"

I get that shocking question every day....it's like meat, fruits, nuts and veg are not considered real food....or the real question should be..."Well what do I eat when I go to Starbucks for breakfast..."
