Well, I fixed the farro yesterday, and combined it with black beans and green chilies. It was delish! I didn't have problems with it. I don't handle kamut well, though.
I made some 100% buckwheat spaghetti last week which everyone liked. It's trial and error.
I know that if I had celiac, I wouldn't eat any of the stuff I try.

Have not eaten it so far but I do know that I can't eat sorghum since it does the same thing that wheat does to me.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Are there any team members out there who do not need to be totally gluten free? I can eat spelt, and am wondering about farro. In my reading, some say it is another name for spelt, and some say it is emmer. I know it is the grain from which our modern wheat descends.
I am curious, because in Germany and other countries, many with gluten sensitivities eat other grains. Have some of us just become intolerant to wheat because of what has been done to it?
I eat mostly gluten free, but do enjoy spelt bread and pretzels with no problem. I know I'm very lucky, and wonder if there are others in my shoes.
Thanks, and God bless.
