Lily the bean thing is something that the Paleo diet recommends against because of the lectins. But you can minimize them by using dry beans and soaking them. Also, many Paleo/Primal/Ancestral health writers advocate allowing yourself a 10 or 20% leeway with your diet so that you can have the things you really like once in a while and maintain the lifestyle long term. Beans are just not that important to me! I would rather use my 20% for something like GF chicken nuggets!

Donna, my understanding is all Chebe uses a base of manioc (what tapioca is made from). That would be their base, so I don't know what changes they've made since I've only been looking / learning for the past month or so :)
I grew up eating lots of legumes (cos the meat we raised was our income!) and that's my one sticking point with the Paleo diet. Legumes are so good for you (if they don't cause a problem).
I just found out 100% (I've been testing it) that BROCCOLI is one of my foods I cannot eat. No matter how well-done I cook it, it blows me up (and I can't "pass" since I have spastic colon). Broccoli! Otherwise, a healthy food.
I wonder if the Chebe pizza crust is better than when I tried it 10 years ago. I didn't care for it at that time. They have come out with a lot of new things that I probably won't try. It seems I try a lot of things and they end up in the trash. The one I do like is the cinnamon rolls. I don't make them like the recipe says. They end up more like cinnamon cookies and everyone that tastes them really like them.
I have had the CHebe pizza crust mix and really like it. It comes out kind of crusty like it should. I bet the bread is good too! I have it available here but just haven't made any I have been trying to stay away from the grains all together.
Thanks for the info. Will have to try it when I get out of this hospital when my husband's transplant takes.
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.

Thanks for the site. I went and looked up Chebe mixes etc., where to buy. Luckily there is a store just a couple of minutes from me. Have you tried these and are they good? I have a hard time eating the GF breads, some of them make me gag.

another thing for Gluten Freely quite often they have deals with Living Social(like Groupon) so you pay $25 for $50 worth of stuff. I was trying to remember the name but Vitacost.com has a lot of GF foods, just watch their deals a couple of weeks ago they had Tinkyada spaghetti noodles for like $2 a bag.

I use Amazon a lot. I do the subscribe and save. I am able to get Chebe at the health food store. If you watch you can get free shipping from Gluten Freely if you spend $40. I never have trouble spending 40. Once in a while they will have free shipping on any amount.
While I prefer baking from scratch, I keep seeing people mention Chebe. I went to their site & I'm interested in getting a "try me" pkg (they have an 8 box). I also saw on Amazon.com, there's some reseller who sells a 12pkg with 2 of 6 varieties.
Just wondering if anybody orders online and where they get the best, most reliable deals?
