I'm curious, mostly.

I eat white rice and fermented buckwheat and very occasionally quinoa. Corn tortialls once a month or so. I will eat gluten-containing food in social situations when it would be excessively uncomfortable not to do so.

I've found it easier to avoid them also. It makes my daily decisions much more consistent and stress free.

I find white rice to be an easy way to get bone broth into my system (and my kids')

Gluten-free and grain-free most of the time, but like others rice and corn are in my occasional column of foods I eat.

I eat white rice occasionally, but that's it for grains.

me. I'm mostly grain free, but I eat some corn-grits or rice a few days a week.

In my day-to-day diet I am gluten and grain-free, but when it comes to special events, travel, occasional restaurant meals, dinner at a friend's house, etc. I prioritize staying gluten-free over staying grain-free. For example, I will go out once or twice a month for sushi and eat white rice; I wouldn't skip a soup at a friends' house just because it had fresh corn in it; I would have oatmeal if eggs were not an option at a hotel breakfast; etc.

I'm on Paleo for 3 months now, and I'm grain-free, except that one day when I tried white rice in a sushi restaurant. I don't think my gut is ready yet for rice, but one day it might, and I will try it again. But between and then, I'm off all grains, including alternative flours (flour is basically "too much of something", no matter the source, and I don't believe in having too much of anything). However, even if I retry white rice in the future again, I don't think I will ever retry wheat/gluten.

I dearly love oatmeal so I treat myself to that once a month or so. Soaked overnight in whey of course.

I wouldn't kick a piece of Spider Roll out of bed so...ya know, three or four times a year for sushi. (Rice KILLS my blood sugar stability so I really have to watch it)

A corn tortilla or three two or three times a year is fine by me.

I prefer to avoid grains entirely. I think the last time I ate grains was back in July at a tech conference (though I may have had some sushi more recently). The buffet lunch was Mexican food and the rice was difficult to eat around.

I did say "ate" above. On Fridays, I will have one beer to close out the work week. It doesn't seem to affect me, but it might be doing more harm than I think.

Even with the winter (in the northern hemisphere) holidays coming up, I plan to completely avoid grains. Though I'll likely indulge in some sugar.

I am gluten-free, but I eat white rice a few times per day because I don't do well with low-carb, yet sweet potatoes turn me orange and many fruits make me gassy. I also enjoy gluten-free baked goods typically made with sorghum or rice flours once a week or so without issue. Going strictly grain-free for over a year didn't show any benefit over eating like I am now.

Definitely gluten and grain free. I only do sourdough buckwheat pancakes. Though, I have eaten rice at times but I avoid it in general.

I avoided all grains as part of a SCD/GAPS diet for nearly 15 months to improve overall gut health. Only recently have I reintroduced very small amounts of white rice and potatoes. Thankfully, I've not experienced any digestive issues. My plan is to remain wheat/gluten free and follow paleo lifestyle for the remainder of hopefully a very healthy life.

Pretty strict except some corn tortillas once every month - two months. The corn doesn't seem to bother me but when I do eat nachos I can eat ALL of the nachos so I try and keep it occasional. Otherwise there would be none left for any of you guys!

I am gluten free, but eat quinoa and some brown rice (a couple times a week, not daily). Occasionally some white rice in sushi (but usually one or two small pieces). But since staying gluten free, that seems to be the key for me to feel good and keep my weight down.

I generally avoid wheat/gluten, but I eat rice almost every day.

I don’t seem to have any sensitivities to gluten, but I am going along with the idea of NADs.

Wheat products do seem much easier for me to overeat than say rice or potatoes so it is probably a good idea for me to avoid them just because of this.
