My husband and I are working to incorporate the Garden of Eating principles into our diet. How does Polenta figure in here? It seems like a grain...I don't want to argue, being a LOVER of polenta, but I'm confused!

Yes, you are correct, polenta is a grain. Since the publication of Garden of Eating I have widened my approach, particularly when teaching. Many of my cooking students and clients want to improve their diets but they or their family members aren't ready to give up grains or dairy products, so I meet them where they are. I also eat these foods on occasion.

If you want to give a strict Paleo diet a try, you might want to give yourself one meal or one day a week where you can eat some of the foods you miss, such as grain, dairy, or some treats you might eat in a restaurant or at a party. For many people this makes the diet more sustainable while allowing you to experience the benefits of going without foods that may cause you problems eaten on a daily basis.

Thanks for posting!
