  • This may help motivate you to stop grains

    For those of you who have a hard time giving up grains permanently, as if MDA hasn't given you enough reason, then here is one extra bonus reason: Tonight I was going to cook some rice for my kids. We have the rice stored in a specially sealed up grain bucket from old CW days. (I used to grind my own grains and make bread.) Anyway, I found black bugs all in my rice. I looked them up online and found that this is very common. Here is one bit of info:

    "Weevil eggs are in virtually every grain product you buy (flour, rice, cereal, oatmeal, etc, etc, etc). *Under the right conditions, they'll hatch. *Once hatched, they will invade your kitchen, finding pretty much any other grain stuff you've got on hand."

    And another site said grocery stores spray regularly to kill bugs that hatch in the stores. So, unless you are into that kind of protein (?), maybe you'll be grossed out enough by thinking about eating hidden bug eggs to skip the grains.
    Don't let anybody tell you, "You can't" just because they can't.

    Yes, but are weevils tasty if you toast them? JOKE!

      Bet they'd make a nice garnish, like sesame seeds or poppy seeds.

      *shrug*

      I'm a bug-eater. I can't help myself.

        Now the rice has some nutritional value!

              beautiful
              yeah you are

              Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

                  I have lots of rice, I don't eat it, but my grandma keeps giving us bags of it a few times a year to stock our "end of days" pantry. We're keeping it- it comes in handy if you get laid-off or are in financial trouble.

                    I remember as a kid my mom used to make me pour out rice and kill all the weevils that came scurrying out.

                    While I don't really eat much rice nowadays, I'd probably just look at them as additional protein.

                    If they were actually dangerous I think cultures around the world would probably be treating it as such instead of just as a pest or delicacy.

                      That's how historically vegetarian cultures have managed to eat healthily. By having some stealth insects providing protein.

                          Imagine if you found a cow in your rice one day....

                            I haven't seen weevils in a long time. Most stuff I get has moths in it. Oh god the moths are terrible. Once a long time ago I bought a box of crackers and mindlessly ate the whole box until the last cracker. I looked at it and there was a moth larva crawling on it. Oh my god how many larva had I eaten?
