Why no wheat? A wheat-free diet has a lot of health benefits. It changes gut microbiome that makes your body less bloated. High intake of wheat also leads to sugar spikes and light migraines. There are also studies show that wheat can cause and exacerbate inflammation. Convince enough? Well, based on my own personal experience, eliminating wheat from time to time has helped me feel good about myself a.k.a less cranky mood!! I bet you want that. 

Why Go Nuts?! Part 1 and yeah, I mean it literally! Okay, but first, for full disclosure, I’m not saying don’t eat wheat at all. I’m not a full pledged anti-wheat person. I just can’t. (I love my monay (Philippine milk bread), challah (Jewish bread), and my pastries way too much!! Eliminating all of them completely from my existence will crush me into pieces!-dead serious -lol ) Anyhow, I believe everything in moderation is accept–able. We have to live life and eating delightful flaky butter croissants occasionally in the morning is not gonna hurt. I promise you. It won’t. Unless, you have a condition that strictly prohibits you from having wheat, it is perfectly fine. 

Why Go Nuts?! Part 2 so here’s the straight to the point and my top 4 reasons why we have to consider eating more nuts and eat less wheat. First, it’s loaded with antioxidants which reduces body’s inflammation. Second, they’re full of essential vitamins and minerals. Third, it’s high in beneficial fiber for gut health. Fourth, it may lower bad cholesterol that keeps your heart happy. Just look at the picture of the hamster above, his eyes say let’s go nuts and make some delicious gluten free cookies!!
