    Celiac.com 07/20/2018 - During my Vipassana retreat, I wasn’t left with much to eat during breakfast, at least in terms of gluten free options. Even with gluten free bread, the toasters weren’t separated to prevent cross contamination. All of my other options were full of sugar (cereals, fruits), which I try to avoid, especially for breakfast. I had to come up with something that did not have sugar, was tasty, salty, and gave me some form of protein. After about four days of mixing and matching, I was finally able to come up with the strangest concoction, that may not look the prettiest, but sure tastes delicious. Actually, if you squint your eyes just enough, it tastes like buttery popcorn. I now can’t stop eating it as a snack at home, and would like to share it with others who are looking for a yummy nutritious snack. 

    Ingredients:

    • 4 Rice cakes
    • ⅓ cup of Olive oil 
    • Mineral salt
    • ½ cup Nutritional Yeast
    • ⅓ cup of Sunflower Seeds

    Intriguing list, right?...

    Directions (1.5 Servings):

    1. Crunch up the rice into small bite size pieces. 
    2. Throw a liberal amount of nutritional yeast onto the pieces, until you see more yellow than white. 
    3. Add salt to taste. For my POTS brothers and sisters, throw it on (we need an excess amount of salt to maintain a healthy BP). 
    4. Add olive oil 
    5. Liberally sprinkle sunflower seeds. This is what adds the protein and crunch, so the more, the tastier. 

    Buen Provecho, y Buen Camino!

    This recipe comes to us from Elizabeth Griffith.
    Makes 11 muffins
    Soak 1 cup of coarse cornmeal (polenta) in 1 cup cranberry cocktail and a good splash of gluten-free vanilla and 6 tablespoons water
    sift together
    ½ cup of the gluten-free mix above
    ½ teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    2 tablespoons of Just Whites (dried egg white about 3 whites worth)
    Combine wet and dry, spoon into heated muffin tins. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes in greased muffin tins.
    I estimated these at about one hundred calories and two and a half grams of protein per muffin.

    This recipe comes to us from Belinda Meeker.
    Ingredients:
    6 cups gluten-free cornmeal
    3 cups gluten-free flour
    2 ½ teaspoon baking soda
    1 ½ teaspoon salt
    1 – 1 ½ cups sugar
    3 cups buttermilk
    2 ½ cups water
    2 eggs (beaten)
    Directions:
    In a large mixing bowl add all dry ingredients and mix well. Add buttermilk and water and add in beaten eggs and mix well. If batter becomes stiff add small amounts of water, but not too much (I use a 40 ounce drinking glass and fill with mix to dip in prepared dogs). Dry off the hot dogs then roll them in gluten-free corn starch and tap well to move excess. Place your stick in dog and d...

    This is a fun recipe to make with kids – they can pop popcorn and watch it transform into flour before their eyes.  No need to run to the store to get some fancy new kind of flour either: simply pop your favorite corn then grind it to a fine powder in your food processor or blender.  Measure, then add to the recipe below for a neat twist on traditional bread recipes.  In the unlikely event you have any bread leftover the next day, this recipe keeps nicely (especially the pre-mixed all purpose flour using Expandex) but also makes a divine French Toast!
