Two Cool Resources
I recently came across an explanation of gluten free flours that was super helpful. It explains what some of the more commonly used gluten free flours look and taste like and what kinds of recipes they are best suited for. After reading it, I have decided that the next flour I need to experiment with is millet flour. It sounds like a great alternative.
Being gluten free can sometimes feel pretty limiting. I’ll admit that it has gotten easier but at first, it was quite overwhelming and frustrating. I felt like there wasn’t anything I could eat! But once I started looking around, I realized that there were a lot of foods that were naturally gluten free. For some people, this may be a total shift away from processed foods and fast food (which, gluten issues aside, is a healthy step for anyone to take!). Emily from Mr. and Mrs. DeBoer has a poster that shows a sampling of what foods are gluten free, which she posted on Pinterest. What a huge list! As the image says, please remember to still read all labels to check for additives. A gluten free diet doesn’t look limiting now, does it?
Edit: It has been brought to my attention that many people disagree with items on Emily’s list, such as hot dogs. Note that she does say in the poster to still read for additives. In addition, if you have issue with this list, please contact her directly. Sending requests to me to edit the poster is useless as I did not create this. Thank you.
