Siete Tortillas

Raise your hands if you miss tortillas 🙋‍♀️

Siete Foods has several different flavors/blends to choose from. We have tried the Almond flour tortillas and the Cassava flour tortillas; both are delicious.

They also make authentic Tortilla chips. We usually do the sea salt flavor, they remind me of a popular restaurant brand tortilla chip.

On the back of each package is the Garza family story and how their brand was born. Great story and great tortillas/tortilla chips!

It was quesadillas for breakfast this morning.

Live Life Celiac Ranch

Our own version of Ranch dressing. So good and belly friendly (egg-free mayonnaise can be substituted) that you may start eating salad for breakfast! We use Spectrum cage free egg mayonnaise and use the jar to not only measure out the kefir, but also to store some of the ranch dressing afterwards.

 

Fresh Spring Roll Wrap

I love portable foods and these travel great as long as you separate rolls with parchment paper. 

We have been wrapping warm veggies, cold veggies, cooked, raw, you name it, we are wrapping it. Below we used cooked rice that had been cooled overnight in the fridge. All other ingredients are fresh. You can pick and choose your own ingredients, below is our process in pictures. ​

Place, one at a time, in warm water until soft

Place on flat surface. We are using a clear cutting board. 

I like adding the leafy greens first, they look nice when wrapped. 

Continue adding ingredients

Slightly stretch and fold 

Repeat with the sides

Fold over and eat or place on parchment paper, careful not to touch or they will stick & tear. Dip in Tamari sauce, hot sauce, or any favorite GF sauce. 

 

Enjoy!

Can be refrigerated over night. It will soften the texture of the wrap. I like my cold ingredient wraps better the day after and my warm ingredient wraps better fresh. Broccoli & Rice is awesome warm. 

Gluten Medication Sickness

The website Gluten Free Drugs is a valuable tool to know if you are able to take brand name, generic, or over the counter and medications. It’s important to know what you can or cannot take before you need it, if possible.

Because the three of us girls have additional problems with the consumption of corn, we are often forced to harm our digestive system to heal our immune system. Since our digestive system controls our immune system, we end up compromising our health and throwing our system into imbalance. Most all prescriptions and over the counter medications contain corn syrup, corn starch, or other corn derived ingredient(s). During the last 7 months, an upper respiratory infection has put me on three different antibiotics, several cough medicines, codeine, and prednisone to get rid of it for good.

Of course this has left my belly so bloated that my new fashion staple has been pajama pants and leggings since attempting to wear my jeans has been uncomfortably unsuccessful.

Tomorrow begins the important job of healing my gut and restoring the gut-flora to all it’s bacteria goodness. Not doing so can cause a Candida overgrowth (Candida Albicans) yeast to attach to and eat through the intestinal walls. This causes a condition called “leaky gut syndrome.” Facto-fermented dairy, yogurt, kefir, and some fermented vegetables, meats from pasture raised animals and bone broths (if you are not vegetarian), ghee, avocados, animal based fats and non-hydrogenated coconut oil are helpful in speeding the healing. Diet, along with a daily regimen of probiotics for the next several weeks or months, until you feel “normal” again.

When healing your gut be sure to limit grains, avoid caffeine, coffee, fermented soy products, sugars, alcohol, and eating out,  unless you trust your health to a stranger.

Love Bread Again

Even when we could eat corn, we found Udi’s and Rudi’s breads to be just “okay.” Before we found out about the corn allergy, we discovered Canyon Bakehouse Bread at Sprouts Market. The Mountain White bread rivals any soft white bread made with wheat ingredients. Like any gluten free bread, the fresher the better. Our nearest Sprouts Market is over an hour away. We live in a rural community consisting of a Target, Walmart Food 4 Less, and Savemart for major food stores.

We use to spend 3-4 hours round-trip a week to purchase bread items. One particular month our Sprouts market had a freezer failure issue and lost all their Canyon Bakehouse breads, among others. After three weeks without bread I went directly to Canyon Bakehouse and found that we could order directly. The extra benefit to this is that the bread comes freshly baked, soft, and amazing. For our family of 4 we order a dozen loafs of white bread, 3 loafs of cinnamon raisin, 6 bags of everything bagels, and three bags of plain bagels. Once in a while we throw in the brownie bites because they are sinfully delicious. The hamburger buns and hotdog buns are equally amazing and softer than anything you will find from Udi’s or Rudi’s (The center is so soft you could literally make a dough ball out of it like you may have done with Wonder Bread as a kid. For Italian dinner nights, the Focaccia is amazingly soft and good. We ate one loaf warmed out of the package because we couldn’t wait to try it. It was perfect.

 

For us, the shipping is worth it. For everything I mentioned above, delivered via FedEx in three days after ordering was just under $26.00. That is cheaper than four trips out of town for us, and maybe for you too. If not, find a store that sells it and try it, you won’t be disappointed.

For genuine San Francisco Sourdough we found Bread Srsly. They have mini loaves, large loaves and dinner rolls. The dinner rolls were excellent at the holidays and the mini loaves are great sliced and microwaved or toasted. I would love to try to make bread bowl soup out of the mini loaves. My last order from Bread Srsly was for three mini loaves of the plain sourdough and my shipping was $5.00. The bread is a little more costly than others, but the shipping offsets the price. Plus, if you miss genuine San Francisco Sourdough, this is definitely worth every penny.

If you have a favorite gluten free or gluten free/corn free bread that is your favorite, please share it in the comments. Good food should always be shared.
