Grain preparation

When you are cooking with grains, it is best to properly prepare your grains to neutralise the phytic acid found in the grains.  Phytic acid negatively affects our ability to digest and absorb nutrients from our food.  For more information on grain preparation see here for this example of preparing brown rice.

Eating mini meals is the best way to snack to keep your sugar balanced, but most people tend to find that after a short while the need for snacks reduces or goes altogether due to the improvements in meal composition, as every meal listed here has protein, fat and carbohydrate, thus keeping your blood sugar more stable.
