*Wheat Gone Wild: Understanding Wheat’s Connection to Deteriorating Health
*Is Wheat-Free Biblical? Reconciling a Wheat-Free Diet with a Bread-Filled Faith
*Moving Forward: Making the Wheat-Free Transition
The first section goes into the reasons why wheat may not be all that great for our health. It’s written in an easy-to-read manner, so you won’t get bogged down with all the scientific details. (While I personally like the scientific hows, whats, and whys, I know when you’re first starting out, you generally don’t need all of that. You just need the information presented in a way that makes sense which Trisha and Luke do successfully in this section.) I didn’t see anything new presented in this section; it was the way it was presented that was unique and helpful.
The second section is geared towards Christians, and honestly, it’s this section that really peaked my interest in the book as it’s something that never entered my mind before this. Trisha and Luke take a look into the idea of why it’s okay for Christians to go wheat-free even when wheat seems to be such a huge part of the Bible. It was an interesting read for me to see why some people might think it wasn’t okay to remove wheat from their diet.
The third section wraps up the book with practical help and resources for making the transition to a wheat-free diet.
Weeding Out Wheat takes a different approach to the wheat-free diet as it takes into account what the Bible says about wheat. It’s unique in that it’s presented in an easy to follow and digest manner from a Biblical viewpoint. Their look into the Biblical side of the health equation as related to wheat was interesting. Overall, it’s a good read for someone who is interested in wheat-free diets and/or someone who is concerned as to whether a Christian should be wheat-free.
Disclosure: I received a digital copy of the above mentioned book as a member of the launch team to help promote the book and write a frank and honest review. A positive review is not expected nor guaranteed. All opinions are my own.
It's especially helpful for Christians who wonder how such a change fits in with a Biblical view. After all, bread is a major part of life in the Bible. It's an issue I've mentioned myself when I was discussing this change with my own family. Luke & Trisha explain the difference between ancient wheat and our modern hybrids in Weeding Out Wheat.
The book is divided into topical categories:
- Wheat Gone Wild: Understanding Wheat's Connection to Deteriorating Health
- Is Wheat-Free Biblical? Reconciling a Wheat-Free Diet with a Bread-Filled Faith
- Moving Forward: Making the Wheat-Free Transition
The first section details the connection between a variety of health problems and the modern hybrid wheat of today.
The second part of the book is specifically directed at Christians.
The final chapter of the book offers advice on how you and your family can make the transition to a wheat-free lifestyle. They also offer a link in the opening pages of the book for a forthcoming wheat-free recipe book.
Definitely a must-read for Christians who grapple with the issue of going wheat-free.
