You might want to repeat this type of newsletter for the upcoming holiday season. I really got a lot out of it but forgot everything by February even tho I practiced some of it. THIS season I plan to do it differently. Did not know spelt had less gluten than regular flour. I am definitely gluten free and love find new tricks to use in baking!! Momma Nature
Thank-you for these great tips! Can you recommend a vata-pacifying flour blend? I find straight oat flour to not work as a replacement in recipes...at least not by itself, and I don't seem to tolerate spelt well anymore either. I am trying to gain weight so looking for some balancing snack options when on the go! Thank-you in advance for considering my query!
You might try coconut flour.
