Take a hiatus from grains and enjoy the sweet flavor of these Grain-Free Apple Pie Pancakes for breakfast or brunch.

 

It is a story I'm hearing more and more these days.

And I can relate entirely... Can you?

After years and years of gluten-free processed foods, like the delicious gluten-free breads, crackers, cookies and more that we go to upon determining we need a gluten-free diet, something shifts. Some of those horrible symptoms come back even when we're eating gluten-free grains. Belly pain, bloating, joint inflammation, overall blah.

Frankly, there can be several reasons. Maybe it's a pre-existing reaction to corn. Maybe it's the mimicking of gluten that oats can have in our bodies. Maybe it's a new-found reaction to tapioca or rice because of over-exposure.

Whatever the reason, it may be helpful to just give your body a breather from grains overall. Or at least minimize them greatly.

After a true hiatus from grains, I'm now in the category of limiting them. Maybe some gluten-free crackers here or a small piece of gluten-free bread there. This is a marked reduction from the 4-6 slices of gluten-free bread I found myself eating every day! Not to mention other gluten-free prepared foods full of corn, oats, rice, and tapioca I'd add in throughout the day.

Once I discovered the beauty of a grain-free almond and arrowroot combination, I haven't felt deprived of anything. Simple things like these Grain-Free Apple Pie Pancakes are a great place to start your own grain-free sabbatical.

It may just be what you need to reboot. And may help you determine if it's a particular grain that is the biggest culprit!

I really believe your body will thank you, and so will your belly.
