since i have also Diabetes, i have to follow a whole grain gf diet, which makes it more comlicated to find gf-food i can afford.
does anyone know of a Link to some recipes made only with gf whole grains like bread + cake + cookies?

I think as long as you get you fiber in, it does not matter what grains you use. As long as it is not the ones that cause you problems.
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.

I was doing South Beach. I quit only because after subbing in the foods I can eat, I was making over the entire menu. lol I am hypothyroid so there are bunch of other stuff I can't eat either... like soy, or cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, strawberries... blah, blah...
I've been on the South Beach diet for three weeks now and having started into Phase 2 I am scratching my head at the requirement for whole grains.
Since most Gluten Free flours are really made of ground beans I'm not really sure how far to take the Whole Grain rule.
Should I totally avoid all my newly rediscovered GF breads because they are bean flour based and not really "whole grain" or should I really consider them to be part of my "bean/protein" and not count them as the grain at all. Instead count things like Polentia and whole Oatmeal for my grains?
