I tell all my customers to eat as gluten-free as possible because today’s wheat products consist of wheat that, due to the manipulation to make it grow faster, has also become more difficult to digest and can therefore also cause more damage to the intestinal wall (intestinal mucosa damage causing less nutrients be properly absorbed).
Unfortunately, most gluten-free products contain a lot of sugars and often few nutrients. Many gluten-free products sold in stores often consist of empty calorie sources and are predators of essential nutrients. Because many gluten-free products are made from gluten-free starch and sugars, you also disrupt your sugar balance and therefore your intestinal flora.
Therefore, take a good look at the labels to see how much sugars and nutrients are in the product.
If you really want to eat these bread substitutes, eat this in moderation and only the products that do not contain too much sugar and mix this with products that stabilize your blood sugar (lots of fiber, protein or some healthy fats) and are full of healthy nutrients.
Better yet, bake your own gluten-free bread or crackers or throw more chickpeas, lentils, and quinoa into your salads and dishes instead of bread. We are also seeing more and more gluten-free products made from chickpeas or lentils, for example.
Remember that if you no longer eat bread, you eat enough products from the sea that contain iodine to avoid iodine deficiencies. Iodine accelerates the thyroid function. Think of whitefish, shellfish and seaweed products. Be careful not to overdo it with these products because too much iodine can eventually slow down the thyroid gland! Everything in moderation!
Eat 85% healthy and for the rest that wine and baguette with cheese is really okay! Are you the kind of person who can keep time? Then take a smoothie or soup day the next day so that you limit the damage. I usually sin on the weekends and always have my detox soup or smoothie day on Mondays!
And don’t forget to enjoy yourself when you sin !! And who says you can’t enjoy healthy dishes? Eat with attention (mindfulness exercise), eat varied and chew well for good absorption of the vitamins and minerals;)
