There is so much conflicting nutritional information from the “experts” about whether or not grains and carbs are good for you. Some say the high fiber grains will help fill your stomach for longer so you don’t snack as much and still others say grains and carbs can make you feel groggy or you can develop an intolerance to them.
This week on my Cravings Coach podcast I interviewed Vanessa Smith, a registered dietitian and life coach, to talk about her own experiences eating grains and also living without grains. She shares her food allergies, her health symptoms that made her feel like she was having an emotional breakdown, and the steps she took to get control of her health and her life.
Living without grains and processed carbs in your diet is up to you and you should carefully weigh how you feel when you eat them and how you feel when you don’t. Vanessa is certainly an inspiration and a testament that it IS possible to gain control of your life and your diet.

I an so sorry to hear about your mom and I wish you and your family all the bexct in this time of sadness.
I came across this blurb while reading your “recently written” It’s interesting to observe Vitality Anakysis results with the 140 food test results. I dislike grains of all kind including rice and there is not a single grain on the list that is a “plus” for me. Ray loves rice and he is plus 800 for it. For some grains show very beneficial and for others, nothing. It’s important to identify your specific needs and not go by what anyone else says is good for you.

Your mother was a remarkable woman. So positive. Kind of fun too. We liked her a lot. We know she was a great mom because she produced such wonderful daughters who loved her and each other. (It is a mark of success when siblings are close and I give some credit to the parents.) We didn’t know Diana or Roselyn but were privileged to know and love Rhoda and Denny. You will miss her but she will always be in your heart and memories. Still, it is sad to know you won’t be able to have a good visit until you are reunited in heaven. I trust she did not suffer.
