After watching some of your videos I'm convinced I should try a vegan diet to see if it helps my Crohn's disease. However, recently I've read a few articles online saying that grains and legumes (even grains such as Quinoa that do not contain gluten) are the real cause of problems in the gut. Apparently they contain some things called Lectins, Saponins and Phytates which they said cause damage to the GI track and can lead to things such as "Leaky gut" and Crohn's disease. Is there any truth to this? If so and I have to avoid grains, is a vegan diet still possible?
