In Topic: Reaction To Almonds?

20 March 2013 - 10:01 AM

My husband has been in to see a naturopath recently and they did a blood test for food intolerances and now he is supposed to cut out almonds, eggs, dairy, peanuts, and cane sugar.  We have already been gluten free for several years and pretty light on the sugar and carbs.  I've been doing almost all of my baking for the past few years with almond and coconut flours because I thought they were much healthier options than all the rice/pot. starch/tap. starch mixes out there that are so devoid of any nutrition and full of empty carbs.  However, my husband is just always sore and it's not joint soreness all the time (though I think he has that sometimes), he has muscle soreness.  And sometimes he'll have stomach issues like acid reflux type stuff.  AND he doesn't ever sleep well, he wakes up several times a night.  None of that ever got better with the gluten-free diet, which is why we resorted to seeing a naturopath.  I would dearly love to get him off the zantac and not have to give him daily massages and if this is the key then I'm happy to do it but I just don't know what to feed him anymore for breakfast.  Up until now most of our breakfast foods have been almond flour muffins or eggs or smoothies with whey protein all of which he can't have anymore.  Has anyone else had any similar symptoms and found relief when cutting out these foods?  And will he ever get to go back to eating them?  I mean, I don't mind cutting out sugar, we've already done that for the most part but now that he can't eat it at all I'm finding it everywhere, it's in bacon and sausage and Lawry's seasoning salt for crying out loud and all sorts of other places.  I'm a bit at a loss.  Thanks in advance for any help or advice you have.

In Topic: Flax Waffle

I don't really have a recipe since i always use almond flour but once when I used a little bit of flax in my waffles it totally ruined my waffle iron from burning and sticking. So, there are tons of flour options out there like sorghum, millet, tapioca, arrowroot etc. just sub sorghum for rice and arrowroot for corn starch and you're good with whatever gluten-free recipe you can find. Google is helpful.

In Topic: Gingerbread Men Question

They turned out just fine, though they spread a lot and the cookie cutter shapes kind of got lost after baking if they weren't rolled really thin. It was a little difficult to roll them out because the dough is so sticky and soft (even after a night in the refridgerator), it required a lot of flour for rolling. Mine were definitely more brown than the picture above, maybe it's the kind of molasses. I think if I make them again, I'll cut down the molasses a bit so the dough isn't so sticky. I also added the two tsp. of ginger, I thought it would be a shame to make gingerless men when they were doing the whole gingerbread man story in class and everything.
Thanks again!

In Topic: Help! Need A Flour For Muffins And Have Lots Of Allergies :/

Here are some links of great gluten-free muffins that I think would work for you. It looks like you can have eggs which is fantastic.
This one could be done without the honey or use a bit of mashed up banana instead, I do that all the time to replace the sugar or sweetener and it works great.
Elana's website has a TON of recipes and she only uses almond flour as well as coconut and they are AWESOME as some others have mentioned.
