At The Festal Table we are a HUGE believer in breaking bread, gathering together, enjoying one-anothers company and feasting on some healthy paleo style cooking… Yet we are not fans of grains that typically make up what bread is most commonly made of.

WHY NO GRAINS? Firstly & most importantly our mission is to educate you on optimal nutrition for an optimal life, but sadly bread & grains are not going to help you achieve these goals! Grains are extremely high inflammatory to the body, making it hard to almost impossible to burn fat, it also causes mental brain fog, intestinal damage, sugar cravings, energy crashes, hormonal mood swings & insulin spikes that causes diabetes… 

The Festal Lifestyle promotes a high-quality fat, protein & veggie diet… Grains on the other hand are extremely high in carbs & most people have an intolerant to them. This means we have no room at The Festal Table because we want you to feel full of energy & awesome when you are done feasting 

We are here to not only teach you what to eat and what not to eat, but WHY! Once you have the knowledge to know WHY grains are so bad for you, it will be very hard for you to eat them without fearing the unwanted side effects it causes in the body! Remember life is such a gift, it’s time to live every single day to you fullest potential! 

Let’s keep it simple with a quick word of wisdom for you to know the side effects that happen when we feast are hungry souls on grains!


Most of you know bread is made of the grain, wheat, & wheat has gluten… What is Gluten? Gluten is a protein found in wheat and other grains. Most people are gluten sensitive, when you eat breads, cereals, pastas, pastry… you will experience inflammation & intestinal damage, causes allergies, asthma, arthritis & IBS. Even if you don’t think you are sensitive, research shows what this protein (gluten) does to the human body!


When you hungry and you eat grains it sends a signal to your brain to keep eating until you overeat and are ready for a nap… Think about all the things you could be doing if you ate something the FUELED your body with The Festal foods… Gain more time & energy to be creative, read your favourite books, grow spiritually or just have more great memories with family & friends!


Grains have a defense mechanisms so predators won’t eat them… They are called phytic acid & Leptin, found in grains, same with beans. These nasty defenses keep you from absorbing your mighty nutrients like iron, and calcium which most of us are already low in. Lectins causes gut inflammation causing discomfort, leaky gut, hormonal imbalances, weight gain and lack of nutrient absorption! 


Mold on food has a greater impact on your health then you could ever imagine… Mold is TOXIC to the body & it almost grows on all foods, especially grains. Our grain crops are very contaminated with mold and pesticides because our regulations are so low…  We all eat small traces of mold each day. Grains on the other hand have a large portion of this toxic mold robbing your health, life, energy & your true potential! Mold causes us to feel sick, low energy, brain fog, weight gain and much more… Learn more about mold toxins here 


As stated above that grains are HIGH carbs, doesn’t matter if they are low glycemic, high glycemic, whole grain, refined, it is still a grain that gives you no GAIN in life. When you eat too many carbs they eventually turn into glucose in the liver, storing it most likely as unwanted FAT! Eating to many carbs leads to insulin resistance, which then leads to being hungry all the time and never feeling satisfied. This gets into a very bad cycle because nothing seems to satisfy your hunger and you keep eating, gaining more weight and before you know it this causes type 1 & 2 Diabetes and other health issues!

This all starts with knowledge! Lack of knowledge will make your life perish away faster then you could imagine!

“ Every day they continued to meet together at The Festal Café. They broke bread at the Festal table and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved”

Acts 2:46-47
