Going GF

For a while now my parents and my sister have been pretty much gluten free {due to gluten sensitivities and intolerance}….we’ve gone along with their “odd” meal time sustenance, with more resistance. But we are beginning to slooowwwlllyyyy come around to the whole Gluten Free – Grain Free lifestyle…and I mean, very slooowwwlllyyyy.

I did finally find a flour that I liked for cookies, that didn’t involve me becoming a rocket scientist to figure out what mix of different things I needed {it’s Pamela’s Pancake and Baking Mix}. We are also loving Bob’s Red Mill’s Gluten Free Pancake Mix {which was our first foray into being GF}. Interestingly enough I no longer feel sick a few hours after eating pancakes. Coincidence? I think not.

One of the things that I think makes Gluten Free so difficult for people to embrace, is the idea of it being complicated and giving up foods that you have loved all along. I get that, really I do, which is why we’re sloowwwlllyyyy going that way, because I need to be able to find a really good flour to use in my pie crusts, because I am not going to give those up {I am currently questing for this} as well as my breads. We more or less just limit how much we consume of those things, since I haven’t found a satisfactory replacement yet.

Knowing how overwhelming and challenging the change can be I came across something that I really wanted to share….., 5 eBooks for $7.40!
