Sometimes people feel sorry for me when I tell them I don’t eat grains.

Don’t.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This would be a pair of US Wellness grassfed beef sliders, topped with simple guacamole and shitake mushrooms sauteed in the burger drippings.  You can barely see the bacon off to the upper left side.

Nourishing.  Delicious.

No pity needed.

I haven’t forgotten that I promised you the recipe for my Roasted Cauliflower & Fennel Soup.  It’s coming next week!

    So true!! But I get more pity looks about dairy than grains. By the way, I’ve used large roasted portabellos as “buns” for hamburgers a few times. I like mushrooms, so it works great. You really have to cook them to get all the moisture out though.

    I am really surprised that you get more feedback about dairy than grains. I feel like grains are everywhere. And folks are still pretty convinced that they have nutrients you cannot get elsewhere.

    We sometimes use lettuce as a wrap. I’ve played with the portobellos but don’t find them very grasp-able. I’m just fine with a fork and knife.

    My mother gave me a really hard time about bread being the “staff of life” and all. Then she fed A bread in the morning and watched the child meltdown about 30 minutes later. No more mention of bread after that. I did email her something Mark Sisson (or maybe it was Chris) wrote about how grain has changed so much the 60s. That also seemed to pique her curiosity. I don’t miss bread at all. Not one bit. Especially after accidentally ingesting gluten a few weeks ago.

    See, I am the same way. I feel so infinitely better without it that the thought of eating it not only doesn’t sound good, it makes me feel ick. Interesting, though, that there was such a noted change in your child’s behavior.
