Just wondering...

I just bought two bags of pamela's flour mix. I already opened one and used for my baking and pancakes. I am wondering if it would be better if i storage both in airtight tupperware or keep it refridgetor? I jsut would hate to see it go wasted if i am not able to use it up quickly... I am not sure since i saw other posting about flour and starch storage.. but i am curious about the flour mix that is purchased at store like Pamela's..

Anything with Almond meal / flour should be refrigerated once opened if your not going to use it regularly.

I just received a shipment of 6 bags of Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix yesterday (6 - 24 oz. bags). The box says it expires in March 2013 so obviously it does have quite a long shelf life (unopened at least). I only open one bag at a time and have never refrigerated it and haven't had a problem. I keep it in a covered Rubbermaid container in my pantry. Of course, if you have room for it in the fridge, that would be a good option. My fridge holds tons of flour...barely room for other food on some shelves. tongue.gif

I also occasionally buy Bob's Red Mill Almond Meal and I do keep that in the fridge.

Have you used Pamela's before? There's a recipe on their website for banana bread that's really good. Lately I've been baking it as muffins...even more convenient than slicing it. Pamela's is one of my favorite products.

okay, lady...!!

I looked at the recipe (and hey, that's the 2nd time this week you mentioned these muffins for me to see and I think you are trying to get me to pop the zipper on my pants!) :lol:

and I wondered...

if you make the banana bread as muffins, how many do they make and how long do you bake them? Thanks, hunny!!

Hee hee....have I really mentioned them twice this week? laugh.gif Must be because they are so good and that's why I can't breathe in my jeans!

I get 12 regular size muffins from the batter for the banana bread and I bake them for 20 min. (they're usually done at that point but test). I also add chopped nuts to the batter. And for anyone else who's interested, here's the link for the Banana Bread. Lots more recipes on Pamela's site, too.

Hmmm...I may have to make them tomorrow as it's been over a month since my slender 13-year old granddaughter was here and ate 4 of them for breakfast (plus a 2-egg bacon and cheese omelet) and another two later that day. Now if I had her metabolism, I wouldn't have a problem either.

I haven't tried the chocolate chip cookies yet. It does makes good pancakes and waffles, too. And they also freeze well. Be careful with cross-contamination using your friend's kitchen. I use a hand-held mixer for quick breads, muffins, etc. And for muffins you can use the paper baking cup liners in a muffin pan.

It's obvious I need to bake banana-nut muffins today and I just took two very ripe bananas out of the freezer (these are unpeeled) and also have some more frozen that I peeled first and put in plastic containers. I use two good size bananas per recipe and don't measure the bananas any more. And I use sugar instead of honey...just easier not to deal with sticky honey.

I don't think you're going to have a problem with the storage of your baking mix as it won't last long enough to worry about it. laugh.gif

Lucky you!

From all I have heard from members, Disney is GREAT for accomodating gluten-freers! Have a blast!

That IS quite an appetite she has! :blink:

I used to say "My metabolism must be in a coma."

Thanks for the tip--and the link. I may make them this week! :)

I have heard only about visitors to Disney calling ahead and getting special food plans. They take allergies and celiac seriously.

I would call ahead and tell them you will be working there and require gluten free meals. There must be a human resources contact for you to call?

    • I can tell you that the head pressure you are speaking about is one of the symptoms I am experiencing now.  And fogginess and dizziness.  I'm going to go as long as I can with my challenge. Im hoping the new GI I'm going to see will work with me. I would like him to do blood work every month to see if levels are changing.  There were so many problems with my daughter's challenge and testing. U of C at the time only recommended a 6 week challenge. And only tTG IgA and total IgA were run. Not a full panel. Well after the biopsy and when insurance wouldn't give us another referral we were told that there was a more extensive panel. By then she was gluten free and we were not going back.  
    • People are able to find a very old topic and add to it (bumping it up to current).  We need to remember to check the dates and realize that these people from 10 years ago may not respond.  Also, remember that product info, ma be even medical info, can change in that amount of time.
    • When I was changing doctors due to insurance issues, I got one doc who I told I had celiac, and had been gluten-free for 2 years. He ordered a blood test and said I DID NOT have celiac cause the blood test came back negative....I looked at him like it was crazy, told him course your not going to detect the antibodies in test if I am not eating it. Told him to go back to med school and never went back. Similar experience with another doctor around that time....funny memory glad I found one that knows about the disease to some extent.
    • ÖThe potential celiac or  NCGS  diagnosis is given to me by the Celiac researchEr.  I do not think it's official until after we meet again.  actually I have not heard of that doctors work. I will look it up and see if I can listen to an interview. Thanks for sharing.  some of the symptoms that I continue to have Had on a strict gluten-free diet or similar to what I have now  and some of them disappeared. Of course During that time I was thrown on Xanax and some Protonix even though I don't actually have acid reflux. So there may have been some symptoms that were caused by those medications but I've been off Of Them for months now.  I guess headed pressure would be one of the more prominent symptoms  that I still had on a gluten-free diet although it's much much worse recently well I'm gluten.  it was almost like I can feel a strange sensation in my gut and the head at the same time but it's nothing like what you would think it wasn't cramping it wasn't... I don't know how to describe it. it does not feel anything like sinuses it's a really strange feeling like my brain Is inflamed Or being squeezed.  When I first started getting it it scared the living crap out of me because I thought I was going to end up passing out. I would be afraid to drive alone with my young son. Now admittedly I was diagnosed with inflammation of the small intestine in late August and was gluten free throughout the fall but started eating it again in late December. So I may not have given myself a tremendous amount of time to heal from the August duodenitis.   Currently I have pain in the right rib cage area,  I also get a tremendous amount of pressure in that area mostly when I'm sitting. Kind of like when us pregnant women had a baby's foot stuck up in that area.  I get nausea on and off, some shortness of breath, dizzy,  when my brain gets that  pressure my eyes often feel it as well, and I get some transient numbness and tingling in my hands and oddly in my face.  last summer I had Random episodes of blood pressure drops as well. I would start to really not feel well and noticed that eating actually helped those episodes. I was exercising a lot At the time but ate constantly  and was maintaining my weight. One doctor theorized it might be my blood sugar dropping so I bought a monitor but I never caught that. The only thing that I did catch was when I bought the blood pressure monitor and started taking my blood pressure when these episodes were happening.   for the most part I had pretty good health up until about a year-and-a-half ago and a very strange six months or so about 13 years ago where a lot of neurological stuff happened as well. I had vertigo, visual disturbances, eye floaters, muscles twitching, ants crawling sensation on my scull, some really strange stuff. It lasted about 6 months and over time it just went away.  except for the eye floaters, they stuck around. I'm not particularly concerned about them it's just that they were not there one day and I had some visual disturbances and Bam there they were and they never went away. I have a half-sister with MS but we ruled it out for me at that time and we also ruled it out last summer as well.   I did the whole 12-week thing that they're suggesting for your daughter. We figured the six weeks wasn't long enough.  For the most part other than a few weird things I honestly didn't get strange symptoms until the end of the six weeks so 12 weeks made sense. I think I actually ended up doing 10 weeks before the biopsy This time. Nothing but the increase in IELs.  I know they only biopsy the duodenum and I wonder sometimes if it's not just lower down. But with the negative blood work except for that one random test I don't know if it's really worth pursuing any more testing at this point. I'm so tired.  I know my brother is seronegative but that's pretty rare although I have no idea whether or not they've ever done a study on if that happens to be familial.  I also would really like to know if people who test positive for TTG 6 have any gut damaged. Because if that's the case perhaps there is no seronegative celiac disease  Have you read Dr. Fasano's work?  he writes back both Celiac and ncgs.  How long are you doing your challenge for again?  I know you may be anxious for answers as well but my suggestion just from personal experience would be to go as long as you can. 
    • I should qualify that I'm actually consuming the equivalent of 1-3 slices of bread in the form of vital wheat gluten. Sometimes I have bread, if I'm eating out. But I don't really want all of the carbs and I want to demonstrate that it actually IS the gluten causing the problems and not a Fodmap issue.  My reaction to bread and my reaction to the gluten are the same.  I'm actually shocked at how quickly things have changed. My hair is starting to thin again (boo hoo 😩), and my stools are completely different and it's only been about two weeks. The headache and dizziness and nausea are the worst.  Ennis, you are right. You would think that all of these symptoms would show on blood work. Grrr. I'm hoping that the GI I'm seeing on June 7th will run a preliminary full celiac panel.  It will only be 4 weeks by then.  Will it show something?  My sister has her PhD in immunology and I remember her saying how difficult research in immunology is because you need clearly high antibodies to demonstrate anything.
