While I enjoy my new cooking hobby, sometimes life gets a little hectic and I get behind on baking grain-free bread. Does anyone know of a Houston area bakery or grocery store that carries any grain-free baked goods?
By the way, I contacted Whole Foods and asked that they start carrying Against the Grain products or at least start baking their own grain-free breads. I have not heard back from them. My sweet husband also put a note in their suggestion box asking that they begin carrying Against the Grain products or other grain free-crackers and pastries.
As a true gluten-free newbie, I'm not struggling in the least to stay on this diet. It has benefitted me immensely. However, I am looking for short cuts and tricks that will reduce my time in the kitchen.
We just baked the coconut flour muffins from Dr. Osborne's book, they are good. I just found out at the forum though that the vanila extract I used is not safe, so I feel a little discouraged by the whole baking process. who would think that vanila extract would have gluten? 🙁
Can you recommend some of the breads that you have been making, I am really missing a good bread.
I will also recommend to Whole Foods to starts carryng these products.
I heard back from our Sugar Land Whole Foods store. They will begin carrying the Against the Grain “Pizza” in February! Yay!! And they might start carrying some Against the Grain sandwhich bread. Linda Dominguez at Whole Foods is very receptive and she is on the hunt to find true gluten free foods. In fact, she contacted me this morning and I sent her a list of the grains Dr. O has advised us to avoid. I cut and copied the list straight from this website!
rice (wild rice is ok)
I'm pretty excited! The less time in the kitchen baking means more time for quilting and gardening.
I got so excited about the Against the Grain brand, went to their website and read about their products. Unfortunately, they all have dairy in them and I can't do dairy, but I am happy for y'all who can enjoy it. Go, Whole Foods! There are so many delicious foods that we can eat, there is no self-pity in our house- 🙂 And we are so blessed to have Whole Foods close by. I feel for folks who don't have access to organic products and our wonderful grass fed beef.
