    it has been a while since i been here i have been involved in searching for grain free meals i have been making almond coconut meal muffins found out that i can not even tolorate rice or grains or anything from the cereal family since i gave up the cereal and grain family i have felt alot better no more desert feeling throat or feeling like i swollowed sand or powder so in that aspect is great brain fog has calmed down as did virtigo but boy do i ever know it if i have been glutenated wow or any of the other top 10 allergins i made a wonderful turkey dinner by only useing qunioa flour buckwheat flour and arrowroot flour for the gravy and using honey for sweetning the squash, carrots and stirfryed in coconut oil aspargus garlic green beans and almond meal over top the almond meal kindof tastes like parmasaun cheese thats pritty cool i made a coconut cream pie as well with almond meal agave and baking soda for crust and topping is 24hr cold coconut milk opened up from bottom pour out liquid whiped up the cream added coconut and sugar free vanilla pudding whipped that up and that was the topping omg talk about good now mind you when i used the pudding mix it was sugar free but also had aspratame in it and i did not really like the after taste of that so if i ever do that again im going to make sure that i have gluten-free vanilla and do a non aspratame version mind you im still having a hard time trying to figure out what to have for breakfast cause alot of times my guts no not really want anything thats so solid i have to try and find a nice soft soothing filling breakfast so i have alot of investagateing to do in the breakfast feild so im off to do some searching have a great day everyone
