    Hi, I loved the interview with Steve Levine. Please keep them coming.

    I have a question re grains. I have been off grains for a while but reintroduce sprouted grains to deactivate the enzyme inhibiters that I do myself. I supplied my greens all winter by sprouting. I follow as much as possible a Palio diet and go to Cross Fit. Once the grains have sprouted a tail I make some enzyme water, then dry them in a dehydrator or make fermented cheese, flat breads and other meals.

    Could you please give me your take re consuming sprouted grains/seeds. The reason I do is for the enzymes, the micro nutrients and some grains (like Quinoa are extremely high in proteins. I use only organic and stay as fa as possible from GMO.

    Thank you

    I loved the interview with Steve Levine. I find stories about real people living the Primal lifestyle very helpful in my journey. Steve is very knowledgeable and was able to convey the science in a way that is easy for a lay person to understand. I would like to see more “real life” stories and particularly would like to hear more from Steve.

    Good show – listened to it while I did my morning workout. It was great receiving some affirmation that I’m on the right track with my diet. Thanks for the podcast! ~Tom~
