I think I might be gluten intolerant. I can eat rice, corn, quinoa, millet, and my favorite hardy breakfast in the morning, oatmeal, with no problems. But eat wheat, barley, or rye then BLAM! And I don’t have to wait long. The other day I was coaxed into a reuben sandwich for lunch and experienced bloody diarrhea that evening.
It took me a while to recognize gluten intolerance because I tested negative for it. Another reason is that my girlfriend regularly makes sandwiches with Ezekiel sprouted grain bread (with wheat) and it gives me no problems for some reason. Apparently sprouting the wheat does something. I still make toast with it in the morning with no problems.
I eat a lot of brown and wild rice and air-popped popcorn is my favorite snack.
