Oven Temp For Toasting Cornbread Croutons?

22 November 2011 - 02:01 AM

I have baked my Bob's Red Mill cornbread to make cubes for drying and toasting in the oven, but have forgotten what the oven temp. should be set at and for how long to toast them. Anyone remember?? Whoops!! That heading should have read TOASTing cornbread croutons.

Can Gluten-Free Diet Cause Diabetes Or High Sugar Results?

07 February 2011 - 09:55 AM

I'm not sure that I am posting in the correct forum or not, but...I have been gluten and dairy free for about 2 years now. I'm self-diagnosed as intolerant after having had a colon resection 4 yrs. ago and experiencing increasing difficulties since then. I've read a lot and educated myself a lot since that time and don't need a "certificate" to tell me what my body already knows. I cannot tolerate gluten & dairy products without bloating, horrid gas, diarrhea, and minimal cramping.

My question is this: my blood test results are approaching the questionable range for diabetes (105 last week). I try to be pretty good about eating healthfully, but since switching from whole wheat/whole grains to gluten-free flours (even though some are whole grains), I wonder if this can account for this increase in my blood sugars and throw me then into diabetes? I know that I now eat too many carbs (I cook my own foods-not packaged stuff)especially when I don't have something cooked to eat...especially gluten-free bread. I am 69 years old with hypertension, hyperlipidemia, & arthritis (all well-controlled with meds) and I'm not obese although I could stand to lose 20-25 pounds. Anyone have any thoughts on this?
