|It was a beautiful fall.|
I've been spending a lot of time trying to figure out how I can start saving money on my gluten free items. I end up spending a lot of money in stores on bread. Even the bread mixes that they sell are over $5 for a loaf. While looking into my own mixture, I found some interesting things about guar gum and xanthan gum. Webmd.com has been them listed as medications helping with constipation and diarrhea, among other things. I have been wondering if there is a hidden food item we still have not found that needs to be excluded and now I'm wondering if this is the culprit.
|Winter happened so fast! Its been colder than it has been in decades.|
I started doing some research on how to get away without those gums without having a crumbly mess. I found some great information from glutenfreegirl.com, this particular post is about how to replace the gums.
Last week I mixed ground chia and flax seeds with some water and used that in the bread recipe for D. It seemed to work quite well. I made a pumpkin loaf for him with pumpkins that I grew. This week my bread was not nearly as successful. I am working on getting a good bread recipe and will post it when I do.
