  1. I have gone totally grain free after a dew recent very nasty episodes of severe gut pain after rice and corn products. And I found the nicest rice/millet porridge - but no go. Back to the drawing board. So can anyone help me with the following: (1) What is the best flour for thickening stews, casseroles etc and for making gravies. In my pantry I have coconut, lupin (no good, it clumps), tapioca, potato and I have an excellent health food store where I can probably get others. (2) Pastry. Is there ANY way to make non grain pastry that will puff up? I love deep dish pies and the last time I tried it shrank into the middle and came out like sheets of some building material Even next door's dog wouldn't eat it! Thanks in advance, Odille from Oz
  2. I use coconut flour and lupin flour (it's a very bright yellow) quite often. And you can get almond flour, chestnut flour, hazelnut flour - I make my own hazelnut (and cashew, almond , sunflower etc) meal(s) in the food processor but it is not fine enough to be called flour - would be good for a crunchy grain effect for breads though. Have a look at this link http://www.foodsubs.com/Nutmeals.html
  3. Are you aware it is made in Ireland and imported frozen? I was loving them until I realised the food miles it was cranking up. I morally object to it. For the NZers here, I always thought your New World and our Coles are the same - ours used to be Coles new World (a long time ago) and they dropped the NW part. I've visited NZ twice and found the products pretty much the same. I am a self diagnosed Coeliac as I went gluten free - via a very low carb diet - for a few weeks and realised I had lost all my horrid symptoms. I suffered: Gastrointestinal Symptoms - constipation, nausea, flatulence, cramping, bloating, abdominal pain Weight gain Infertility (I never had children and there were plenty of opportunities) Fatigue, weakness and lethargy Easy bruising of the skin Recurrent mouth ulcers and/or swelling of mouth or tongue Dermatitis herpetiformis - very badly Altered mental alertness and irritability Bone and joint pains Failure to thrive in children Delayed growth or delayed puberty in children Migraine headaches - 2-3 a week Depression Poor dentition At first I thought I was just very intolerant, but as time goes by and I eat less gluten my symptoms get worse. The culmination was last Sunday when I was tempted by a small piece of Turkish bread and had it in a steak sandwich (home made) After 3 hours of agonising cramping and griping pains, which were so bad my partner wanted to take me to the hospital, I have sworn off it for life. I loosely follow a Primal lifestyle and am trying to give up all grains. I saw on another forum that rice and corn have a type of gluten too and can give problems. I am also trying to follow the 5:2 fasting lifestyle to lose some weight, at 115kgs I need to lose 40-50 kgs. My joint pain is horrendous. Look forward to joining in here and getting some tips on managing this.
