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.
I love that they explain in an easy to understand manner why modern wheat is so different from ancient wheat, because I know I had questioned why, if wheat has been around since the beginning of creation, are so many people finding themselves sensitive to wheat all of a sudden.
The authors share many different conditions that can be linked to wheat consumption. I know my daughter has suffered migraines for a while and to find out they can be possibly linked to wheat was something that had never been mentioned. And migraines are just one of a huge list of problems that people suffer.
I love that they included testimonials of individuals who have discovered the benefits of going wheat-free. From stomach aches that stopped, to skin problems going away and even "brain fog" being lifted you will find that going wheat-free can have multiple benefits.
It was also comforting that they addressed the question "Is eating wheat-free Biblical?" Wheat and bread were so important in Biblical times that some may wonder how to reconcile going wheat-free with their spiritual lives. It comes down to this, "Wheat is a provision, not an obligation."
The book concludes with guidelines on what to eat once one gives up wheat. The focus is on eating healthy and not substituting junk for the wheat that has been given up.
While I would love to give the book 5 stars, part of me is fighting against the fact that meat is included in the ideal diet. When I went vegan almost 10 years ago for about half a year I really could see the benefits of also taking meat out of my diet.
I could feel the benefits within a week of taking wheat out of my diet a couple of months ago. Unfortunately I could also feel the harm of adding wheat back in when I slipped up during the holidays.
All in all this is a great book that convinced me of the importance of taking wheat and possibly other grains out of my diet, reassuring me that it was not anti-Biblical.
