I got in big trouble as a kid when we went to restaurants. I wanted tons of pancakes but could hardly eat any. So to this day I'm known for wasting food ordering adult portion pancakes.
What we didn't realize is that I never did well with gluten...or grains for that matter. It was like eating giant slabs of cake and if you're sensitive to it, you know what it does to your stomach. Still not supposed to have grains. You may have heard how inflammatory today's wheat varieties are, how refined it is, or the effects of "Wheat Belly."
