Many people are finding they have either full blown allergies or just a mild intolerance to wheat. The latest science on this is that it may be caused by the fertilizers and pesticides used on the crop than the wheat itself. Oats are a good way to start your day and can keep you feeling fuller for longer.
We're all about POSITIVE EATING here at the Albany Street Clinic. Eating well is much more about adding in the good stuff than taking out the bad stuff (with the exception of sugar). There is so much that can be done to improve your nutritional intake and the results are a more robust immune system, more energy, weight loss, better skin & hair, balanced hormones (that goes for men and women) and balanced blood sugar levels.
