Welcome new readers! I got lots of comments on my last blog post about vegan diets. I don't recall too many holier-than-thou vegans when I was as holy, I think that attitude is much stronger these days.
What bothers me even more is the behavior of some registered dietitians who act like Kashi shills and ram healthywholegrains down everyone's throats.
Once when I was at a weekend camp-out, this attending dietitian made a big deal about explaining to us the wonders of steel-cut oats. 'Course, I had my fill of the little buggers when I was a vegetarian, not so much now, but I used to even grind my own from whole oats.
I casually mentioned that I didn't eat wheat anymore, but she insisted that I try the oats, so I agreed to try them the next morning. She made a big deal out of soaking them and cooking them all night, too. Unfortunately, she neglected to tell me that the steel-cut oats also contained plenty of other steel-cut grains, like wheat.
That just made me so mad. Nothing like healthy, satiating, stomach-rumbling-all-day wholegrain wheat.
