Are sprouted grains, as in \"flourless bread\" healthful? I\'ve been avoiding all grains & sugar, as Dr Mercola suggests, but would love to try the flourless bread if sprouted grains are not problematic.

Many people will do very well avoiding all gluten-containing grains, and some people may need to avoid all grains. We recommend going gluten-free for the first few weeks on our program and do not allow any bread-like products during that time. Once you have tested and determined that grains are ok for you, though, we do allow small amounts of sprouted grain foods, like bread. They do have some healthful properties.
