against all grain

Against all Grain

I bought this book as I am turning a new leaf with my health and eliminating more food items that could be bothering my stomach or my health in general. I love finding new and interesting recipes and more uses for coconut milk and oil.

I bought this book and was disappointed that the calories are not listed with the recipes. I finally found them at the back of the book which is frustrating. Have you read Against all grain? What is your favourite recipe? What blender do you use? I am thinking of buying a better one but there are so many to choose from.

against all grainLove the tuna salad recipe but what the heck are salted pepitas?  Glad you can prepare the tuna recipe and keep for 3 days and the warm taco salad got my eye as well.  I love to have a little spice.  My husband brought a ton of turmeric back from India.  Now to find recipes with lots of that would be nice.

The reason I bought this darn book is because the first page I opened was a strawberry shortcake with whipped coconut cream.  Way to go!!  I was at Starbucks and was so hungry.  May be that is why the cook books are so close to the Starbucks store.  Now if they had scratch and sniff I would be in trouble.

Leftover chicken recipe or turkey.  If you eat turkey twice a year like us this recipe is great.

Love her words to avoid chart….like xanthan and guar gum and carrageenan.  Why don’t they just have a label that says if there is more than 10 ingredients and they start with salt or corn syrup/starch/dextrose etc…back away from the package

Well time to leave against the grain and find myself a good blender to make my first batch of almond milk.  Let me know how you liked the book and what recipes you have made

The “wheat belly” syndrome. Have you heard about it? It was news to me until I tried to lose weight and it would not come off my stomach. Another annoying symptom was having a swollen stomach and always feeling full, yet I had not eaten that much. Going on a gluten free diet is the answer.

In the movie Hungry for change, and in every book I see at the book store lately, suggests that more and more people need to try eating a gluten free diet. I am seeing product shows that concentrate on gluten free products.

The program I suggest if you are trying to lose weight is Isagenix , not only is it gluten free, it is also lactose free, barley and wheat free. I am using it now with great success.
