- , a review of the recipes themselves. Many of them, including the most popularized ones, are replacements that mimic the sugary foods that so many people are addicted to and that caused their obesity and diseases of civilization in the first place.
While avoiding wheat will help some people greatly, staying dependent on the tastes and textures of what we have been taught to enjoy about wheat is counter-productive at best. The use of processed nut flours, fruit and artificial sweeteners, even xylitol and stevia, does not retrain your tastes away from the sugary, HFCS, high carb diet we have been hooked on. Much better to just learn to enjoy real, whole, unprocessed foods again.

- , fair enough. I agree that it's best to wean oneself from sweets, whether they're sugar & wheat free or not. But these recipes are consistent with Wheat Belly, and on the occasion that you do want a healthy alternative to an old favorite, I don't see much harm.Jan 9, 2013
