In Topic: Best Tortilla?

20 July 2014 - 02:46 PM

I'm not the first person here to start making these, but since there is no such thing (imo) as a decent store bought flour tortilla it falls to us to make them. This recipe is so simple a kid could make them and really is flexible and even a little stretchy. My husband picked up the first one I made, grabbed two sides and started pulling. I freaked out, thinking he would just tear it in half and instead it had a little stretch to it. And they're delicious. ^_^ http://glutenfreerec...ten-free-wraps/

 

 

THANK YOU!!!!!!  The picture of them makes them look very pliable and soft! I am definitely going to have to try making these. In my "before" days I used to always make homemade flour tortillas (never bought them!) but now I find they just fall apart and never stay together long enough in the skillet etc.

 

Thanks so much!


In Topic: Grain Brain

I read it recently. He packs a lot of information into the book - unfortunately it's hard to distinguish between what's factual (a lot of it is) and what's not quite proven. I think it's an interesting read, but I would take large portions of it with a "grain" of salt.

 

 

Yes, that was what I thought. It WAS long. My Lord! I just sort of felt that he made gluten to be the culprit for everything. Got a headache - gluten is to blame. Got a hang nail - gluten is to blame. Don't get me wrong - I DO agree that a lot of people are gluten sensitive or intolerant or celiac but I think to blame every single ailment on gluten is detrimental to those who should be seeking other reasoning behind disease process etc. I sort of felt it was so one-sided and anti-gluten that it might actually put people off and make them not believe most of what he has to say.


In Topic: Wal Mart's gluten-free Good Value Line

I'm assuming all of the above posters are in the USA? I am in Canada and haven't seen a Great Value gluten-free line as of yet.


In Topic: Gluten In Enchiladas Or Refried Beans?

15 July 2014 - 01:53 PM

Who knows. Honestly, even those people in my life who KNOW I am gluten-free have good intentions when making things for me to eat and they *think* they made it gluten-free. Most of the time, by the next morning I KNOW it had gluten in it. I know that just yesterday I was looking at corn tortillas and I found a brand that had wheat gluten in it. Heck, even CORN tortillas are being messed with!

 

I am lucky in that when I get glutened I just have cramping and gas and once I pass it in my stool (sorry, TMI!) I am good to go again. But that doesn't  mean I want to intentionally eat the gluten anyway!

 

I feel your pain. I really do. This is such a complex thing and it's in so many items that unless you are really, really vigilant and well-read up on what exactly gluten-free means, even the most well-intentioned friends and family members WILL gluten you and not know it. 

 

Now I pretty much just stick to whole foods that haven't been messed with too much. Stuff like plain old baked potatoes or a salad with no dressing etc. Less chance of gluten inadvertently being in there.

 

And then some people never get it. Just today my MIL brought me some left over pizza that was just "oh, so good".  :rolleyes:   Some people NEVER get it. 

 

I hope you feel better soon!

I finally got to try Udi's bread.  It is awesome. :wub:  (I also checked my stock, and guess what?  The company acquired Udi's!  Every time I buy a loaf of Udi's, I'm kinda paying myself!) :D :D :D :D :D

 

The Kinnickinnick new Soft Bread is also exceptional.
