Wheat is a highly controversial food these days.
On one hand, we’ve got people telling us that it is extremely harmful, with one doctor calling it poison.
Then on the other hand, we’ve got dietitians and the government telling us that whole wheat is an essential part of a “balanced” diet.
Well… one inescapable fact is that humans have been consuming wheat, in one form or another, for thousands of years.
It is an old food… and most diet-related diseases are relatively new.
Therefore, it doesn’t make sense to blame old wheat for these new health problems.
However… it’s important to realize that wheat today is not the same as it was a thousand, one hundred or even 60 years ago.
Is there anything such as helathy wheat?
If you can get your hands on whole grain bread made with Einkorn or some of the older varieties of wheat, then perhaps it can be a part of a healthy diet.
Another way is to make it yourself.
You can dig around and find someone who sells whole wheat grains of the old breed, then you can grind and ferment the wheat and bake your own healthy bread.
Or you could just save yourself the trouble and skip the wheat altogether. There’s no nutrient in it that you can’t get in greater amounts from other foods.
