Easter time always brings back fond memories of an easter egg hunt in the garden as soon as the sun was up, big family lunches and enough chocolate to last a year, except it never did! Having grown up in a largely countryside setting, we were always naturally exposed to an environmentally friendly lifestyle, living close to the Earth and eating healthy and wholesome foods. Organic was not a catchphrase back then and when, as a young adult, I moved to a city environment, I was truly surprised to find that not all foods are created (or manufactured) equal.

In modern society many people are choosing 100% wheat-free diets or diets largely wheat-free, some out of necessity due to coeliac disease or a wheat intolerance, others merely to add more variety to their diets. However, what does one use to replace wheat? Below are three different grains which can be added to a balanced diet as alternatives to wheat. Please note that not all 'wheat-free' grains are suitable for coeliacs as they may still contain some gluten. Always consult with your personal nutritionist before changing your diet in any long term way.

What is Nutritional Therapy?
" Our food should be our medicine. Our medicine should be our food." is a well known but in fact only partial quote from the famous Greek physician Hippocrates (460BC – 377BC). The full quote is said to go as follows: " Everyone has a doctor in him or her; we just have to help it in its work. The natural healing force within each of us is the greatest force in getting well. Our food should be our medicine. Our medicine should be our food. But to eat when you are sick, is to feed your sickness." (1)
