15 posts in this topic

Just wondering...

I just bought two bags of pamela's flour mix. I already opened one and used for my baking and pancakes. I am wondering if it would be better if i storage both in airtight tupperware or keep it refridgetor? I jsut would hate to see it go wasted if i am not able to use it up quickly... I am not sure since i saw other posting about flour and starch storage.. but i am curious about the flour mix that is purchased at store like Pamela's..

please let me know thank you!

Anything with Almond meal / flour should be refrigerated once opened if your not going to use it regularly.

I just received a shipment of 6 bags of Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix yesterday (6 - 24 oz. bags). The box says it expires in March 2013 so obviously it does have quite a long shelf life (unopened at least). I only open one bag at a time and have never refrigerated it and haven't had a problem. I keep it in a covered Rubbermaid container in my pantry. Of course, if you have room for it in the fridge, that would be a good option. My fridge holds tons of flour...barely room for other food on some shelves. tongue.gif

I also occasionally buy Bob's Red Mill Almond Meal and I do keep that in the fridge.

Have you used Pamela's before? There's a recipe on their website for banana bread that's really good. Lately I've been baking it as muffins...even more convenient than slicing it. Pamela's is one of my favorite products.

okay, lady...!!

I looked at the recipe (and hey, that's the 2nd time this week you mentioned these muffins for me to see and I think you are trying to get me to pop the zipper on my pants!) :lol:

and I wondered...

if you make the banana bread as muffins, how many do they make and how long do you bake them? Thanks, hunny!!

Hee hee....have I really mentioned them twice this week? laugh.gif Must be because they are so good and that's why I can't breathe in my jeans!

I get 12 regular size muffins from the batter for the banana bread and I bake them for 20 min. (they're usually done at that point but test). I also add chopped nuts to the batter. And for anyone else who's interested, here's the link for the Banana Bread. Lots more recipes on Pamela's site, too.

Hmmm...I may have to make them tomorrow as it's been over a month since my slender 13-year old granddaughter was here and ate 4 of them for breakfast (plus a 2-egg bacon and cheese omelet) and another two later that day. Now if I had her metabolism, I wouldn't have a problem either.

I haven't tried the chocolate chip cookies yet. It does makes good pancakes and waffles, too. And they also freeze well. Be careful with cross-contamination using your friend's kitchen. I use a hand-held mixer for quick breads, muffins, etc. And for muffins you can use the paper baking cup liners in a muffin pan.

It's obvious I need to bake banana-nut muffins today and I just took two very ripe bananas out of the freezer (these are unpeeled) and also have some more frozen that I peeled first and put in plastic containers. I use two good size bananas per recipe and don't measure the bananas any more. And I use sugar instead of honey...just easier not to deal with sticky honey.

I don't think you're going to have a problem with the storage of your baking mix as it won't last long enough to worry about it. laugh.gif

Lucky you!

From all I have heard from members, Disney is GREAT for accomodating gluten-freers! Have a blast!

That IS quite an appetite she has! :blink:

I used to say "My metabolism must be in a coma."

Thanks for the tip--and the link. I may make them this week! :)

I have heard only about visitors to Disney calling ahead and getting special food plans. They take allergies and celiac seriously.

I would call ahead and tell them you will be working there and require gluten free meals. There must be a human resources contact for you to call?

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
