Many people think their diet will be inadequate (especially in fiber) without including grains. Yet many other people are perfectly happy and healthy without eating grains. Whether one is following a keto or low carb or low inflammatory diet, there can be plenty of fiber and nutrients in a grain-free diet. And it is not hard to replace some grain dishes, with ones containing hi-fiber, nutritious ingredients but no grain products. If you like hot cereal in the morning, give this a try. Some compare it to cream of wheat.
