I avoid eating grains. What can I eat instead of the grain servings on the food plan?

The grains listed in the BLE food plan may be replaced with:

  • 4 oz. of cooked starchy vegetables such as corn, squash, peas, pumpkin, parsnips, taro, breadfruit—alone or in combination. (Note, also, that potatoes, sweet potatoes, and yams already count as “grains” in Bright Line Eating, though they are not biologically grains, and you can eat those if you like.)
  • 6 oz. cooked greens.
  • 4 oz. cooked plantains.
  • 2 oz. of water chestnuts.
  • 1 fat serving.
  • 1/2 of a protein serving.
  • At breakfast, you can also have 1 oz. chia seeds soaked overnight with 4 oz. almond milk and 2 oz. water to make a chia seed pudding in lieu of a grain serving.
