5. Bread—General Information
Bread is not recommended. Grain is not a Class A food, being difficult to digest, and causing “allergic” problems. Wheat, rye, barley and oats contain a substance called gluten, which is the source of many of these problems. The best way, to use grains is to sprout them and eat them raw. Wheat and rye berries and oat groats may be sprouted—the soaking and sprouting is said to neutralize the gluten, but some people still have problems with wheat and rye, even when sprouted. Oats seem to cause fewer problems, and rolled oats may be eaten raw.
Grain, ground into flour, and baked into bread along with other ingredients, including yeast and sweeteners, is not recommended. Some gluten-free breads are sometimes available, but, while these cause little or no “allergic” problems, they are still not the best food.
Oils: Eat your salads without dressings. We have been loving our salads “undressed” for many years and I make dressings only occasionally when we have guests, at which times we eat them also, and on the next day, gladly go back to our undressed salads. When I do make these salad dressings for my guests, I don’t use any oil, but make them by combining, avocados with tomatoes or cucumbers. Recipes for such salad dressings will be included in Lesson 26.
