    Exactly
    Pasta and rice are both pretty void of micronutrients. but anyways a little bit of variety does not hurt. Eat it.

    Grain based products contain phytates; I avoid all where possible.

    Nah, not hardcore paleo, maybe loosely though lol. Just non-processed. And I got turned off Wheat because of ZiRs blog post about it; opened up my eyes a bit more.

    EDIT: These quote tags are messed up lol
