Most paleo folks recommend white rice over brown rice. Brown rice is important if you're desperately poor and eating nothing but rice, since it's your only source of B vitamins. But if you're eating meat, you're getting your vitamins already, and... (more)

I can feel the ill effects from wheat and barley (except beer) within hours of eating them. Low mood, brain fog, etc. Beans, no problems, at least not immediate problems.
