I read lots more blogs than i have on my own list -- but there are a few reasons why some aren't there. Certainly the largest group is made up of sites i'm not particularly familiar with; i might have read a couple of examples from bloggers out of hundreds of posts, but until i find their information consistently helpful i definitely won't recommend them ... yet. There are also a bunch of sites that i agree with a lot, but not ENOUGH. Several of the ones i've removed from the list fall into this category, and i consigned them to limbo because just a FEW of their ideas are SO "wrong" (for me) that i consider their advice problematic. Hell, the big reason i write here is to pass along what WORKS for me, and potentially for those with similar challenges!
Other sites i read are on other bloggers' lists, and i only click the link if the title sounds interesting (a lesson: make titles interesting*). Therefore, i come across a LOT of writings which advocate dietary practices that i KNOW are deleterious to MY health, and probably that of quite a few others as well.
This is why i'm compelled to write so often in response to other bloggers' posts -- i can't stand reading those sincere, heart-felt messages full of BAD NUTRITIONAL ADVICE!
So, when i read a post just now, extolling the virtues of one of those hearthealthywholegrains (not wheat), it made me tense up all over. The nice vegetarian dietician lady was telling her readers how to choose and prepare a meal of a less-processed grass-babies. She didn't even advise to disable the antinutrients, or recommend avoiding the kind that can't be thus improved. :-(
Now, i KNOW these particular grass-babies are deleterious to my health. I did a careful elimination-retrial-elimination, and it was almost as bad as wheat when it comes to joint pain. So i have to conclude that, to carbohydrate-sensitive people (like me) who have autoimmune problems with wheat (like me), should stay the hell away from ANY grain that contains ANY degree of gluten, unless an elimination trial shows its side-effects are bearable. Like me.
* not something like ... oh, for instance, "daily quote" or "surprise of the day".... there's nothing compelling in those at all. ;-)
