(Go to the link for more G-F recipes!)
2 cups dark brown teff flour*
1/2 cup tapioca flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon cinnamon
2 cups non-dairy milk
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 large organic eggs
3 tablespoons melted virgin coconut oil
3 tablespoons pure maple syrup (Grade B)
Definitely not on-hand ingredients for most people though... The things you learn to cook and eat while going gluten free... Have not used white flour or sugar in years with the exception of confectioners sugar for cake frosting.
Anyone with joint pain (arthritis type) should consider trying a gluten free diet to see if it helps. The last doctor I saw for a physical recommended it (of course I chose him because he has a reputation of paying attention to nutrition).
Also now learning about the importance of vitamin K2 (and D) in preventing tooth decay, osteoporosis and heart disease. It helps the body deposit calcium where it belongs (bones and teeth) and not where it does not belong (arteries). Food sources include natto (Japanese fermented soybeans), goose liver pate and certain cheeses, such as Gouda. Natto has 10 times more than the next in the list but is an acquired taste to say the least. Also available in pill form...
*Teff flour comes from a tiny grain (teff) that is common in Ethiopia. Nutritious and tasty. Seems that it prevents most people in that country from having anemia despite much lower animal product consumption...
