This recipe uses one of my favorite products Grandpa’s Kitchen Bread Mix. When making this, you can use any gluten-free flour mix. This recipe I made is a variation from one of Grandpa’s Kitchen recipes, that I revised to be more diabetic friendly.

12 oz plain yogurt

2 eggs, slightly beaten

1/4 Cup Avocado Oil

2 1/4 C Grandpa’s Kitchen Bread Mix

1/3 Cup Oatmeal Flour

1 tsp Salt

3 tsp Baking Powder

1 Tbsp Monk Fruit Powder

1 Tbsp Yeast

Mix all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. On lowest mixer speed, slowly add wet ingredients and incorporate with the dry ingredients and mix for five minutes until thoroughly mixed. Cover the dough and refrigerate for about 2 hours.

Grease hands well. With a 2-inch scoop, make dough balls, roll gently and place in a greased 9×13 pan. Let rise for 40 minutes or until rolls touch each other. Bake in preheated oven at 400 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown.

1 roll = 20 g carbs,  0 g sugar

You can find the original recipe on Grandpa’s Kitchen website.

Lentils – So Many Uses

Lentils

 

There are so many uses for lentils. You can use them as a substitute for beans or a substitute for ground beef. They are much quicker to cook than beans, which makes it easier to use for quick dinners. Lentils are great in spaghetti sauce, chili, tacos, etc. Plus lentils are packed with lots of vitamins and nutrients that make them much healthier than eating meat.

 

What It Means To Be Gluten-Free & Vegan

Many people don’t realize the differences between being Vegetarian and Vegan. Everybody knows that being vegetarian means you don’t eat meat. Being Vegan is a lifestyle choice it means to not only not eat meat, but also not use any by-products derived from animals or anything that is harmful to the environment. Being Gluten-Free can also be a lifestyle choice. Many people I know need to be gluten free due to dietary restrictions or food allergies.

Gluten for those that don’t know, is a product that is found in traditional flour, pastas and many other products.

Gluten (from Latin gluten, “glue“) is a protein composite found in foods processed from wheat and related grain species, including barleyrye, and spelt. Gluten gives elasticity to dough, helping it rise and keep its shape and often gives the final product a chewy texture. Gluten is used in cosmetics, hair products, and other dermatological preparations.[1]

Gluten is the composite of a gliadin and a glutenin, which is conjoined with starch in the endosperm of various grass-related grains. The prolamin and glutelin from wheat (gliadin, which is alcohol-soluble, and glutenin, which is only soluble in dilute acids or alkalis) constitute about 80% of the protein contained in wheat fruit. Being insoluble in water, they can be purified by washing away the associated starch. Worldwide, gluten is a source of protein, both in foods prepared directly from sources containing it, and as an additive to foods otherwise low in proteinhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gluten

Many products that you buy in stores that normally don’t have gluten have in them, have been contaminated and processed in a facility that also processes products containing gluten. This is a huge problem for people with  food allergies. Then there are many people with gluten, soy and dairy allergies. If you have food allergies, are diabetic or have made the choice to be Vegan or Vegetarian, I want to cater to all of you in sharing recipes and ideas that will help you live a healthy lifestyle.

There are many additives out there that are very unhealthy that I try to avoid. I admit not every single post I share on here will not cater to everyone’s needs (all recipes are gluten-free). I will do my very best to list all of the nutrition information you need, to help you decide for yourself what is best for you to try. My rule of thumb;  If it’s too expensive to make, find a better way to make it, if it doesn’t taste good don’t bother.
