It's not - nor have I given up beer. Both are occasional treats (once a week or less for bread, 3-4 beers a week for beer) and I probably will never give them up. I'm very healthy, have no digestive issues, and I really friggin' love bread and beer. Beer is a big part of my relationship with my dad. Though he tragically has Crohn's disease and probably shouldn't be drinking beer at this point. I'm helping him to gradually transition to high-end ciders and wine. I'm even brewing some cider for him which will hopefully taste as good as the great beers he enjoys.

I think grains can be a healthy part of a diet as long as they're the right grains, and they're consumed in moderation in the context of a healthy, otherwise primal diet. Hell, one of my favorite comfort foods is a big bowl of oatmeal with butter and cream. On the advice of Nourishing Traditions I've started soaking my oats prior to cooking them.

I'm a weak man...If I give myself a few feet of leeway, I burst through all of my prohibitions.
