A few weeks ago, I picked up a book for my Kindle- Weeding Out Wheat by Luke and Trisha Gilkerson. I've been reading anything I can find about eating gluten free since I made the decision back in May to go gluten free.

Weeding Out Wheat was a new perspective. The authors considered not just nutrition but also Scriptural concerns for going gluten free. They addressed several concerns- some I had thought of and some I had not. Here are some of the things they look at in the book.

  • Why are mentions of bread and wheat in the Bible and why does Jesus use it so much if it can be so bad for us?
  • Does the Bible really address specific dietary instructions?
  • What do I do about communion if I am eating gluten free?
Interspersed with this are testimonies of people who have gone gluten free and the results they've had with their own health.

I really enjoyed this. It's a short book. But the perspective it offers is different and good to consider if you're eating gluten free.

  1. Are you still eating gluten free after reading this book? I know that there are medical reasons for eating gluten free (Celiac disease) but I have often wonder if so many of the "gluten free" testimonies are really people eating healthier over all? I'm going to see if my library has this one.

  2. This one is on my TBR as well. We are gluten free temporarily, for about another week. We've lost weight and I've seen attitude and behavior changes in my kids; I'll be interested to see if it goes back the other way when we re-introduce gluten. We've done an elimination diet for several reasons, partly to get in the habit of eating healthier. Looking forward to making some permanent changes based on what we've learned. Thanks for linking up with 52 Weeks series! Have a blessed week!
