I made some Glutne Free Pantry Pizza dough last weekend and made it into a dozen small rounds instead of a pizza (The mix is for pizza crust or French bread). I wrapped each in foil and froze, and found I could just pop in the toaster and they're ready to go to spread with smart balance or peanut butter or jam or (or top with cheese, toppings, whatever and pop in the microwave or toaster oven. This has worked out great for me!

I forgot to say that was Bob's Red Mill Wonderful GF bread mix. It also contains 2g protein per slice as well as 3g fiber.

The Homemade Wonderful GF Bread Mix that I made was truly wonderful--the most bread-like GF bread I have tried. Highly recommended!

It is mixed in a mixer for three minutes and takes 25-35 min. to rise--easy and it makes a high loaf, and the slices do not crumble, like the tapioca breads do.

With God, nothing is impossible!

Most definitely eating is better with the calories you require daily. Not eating only creates problems! Have you ever not eaten for a full day, then start later, like 7-8 at night, and can't seem to stop? That is your body trying to make up for all the meals you skipped all day! You need to eat your properly proportioned meals each day, with healthy snacks inbetween meals. Look at Dolly Parton. She went to several small meals a day years ago and has kept the weight off. You need to eat, rather than deprive yourself of the calories and nourishment your body needs for energy, brain activity, strong immune system etc.

thanks my problem is I don't realize I didn't make it until I put the baby down at 8pm. I have heard never to eat after 8pm. So which is better calories or not eating? Does that make sense?

Yeah, it would. You are suppose to eat the recommended number of calories in order to lose the weight. It won't work if you try to deprive yourself out of what your body really does need on a daily basis.

I found I was eating within my calorie range and it wasn't that hard to do. There was the odd day I didn't make it,so I'd have some hot air popped corn at night! Good for fiber too. Just a dab of margarine, Becel even.

Thanks, I am scared to eat bread though I am scared it will make me gain more weight. But saying that since I have been counting calories this week it I notice I am not eating near enough calories some days. Maybe that would help? Thanks

The Glutino Flax Seed Bread also has 3g fiber in it. I had talked to a dietition not too long ago about which bread was better for me, a corn based bread or the rice bread that had the flax seeds in. She researched it and got back to me with the flax seed bread. The calories were a tiny bit more, but overall the fiber and benefits of the flax seed were better.

Bob's Red Mill has "Homemade Wonderful GF Bread Mix" with 3g fiber per slice. It is made from garbanzo bena flour, potato starch, corn starch, white sorghum flour, tapioca flour, zanthan gum, yeast, potato flour, sea salt, guar gum, soy lecithin.
My first loaf is in the oven now. My sis was kind enough to mail me a package!

I have a box of milled flax seed from Hodgosn Mill.
Does anyone know of good recipes using this product?

It's hard to get enough fiber in a GF diet, that's for sure. You really need to make sure you are eating the usual: lots of fruits and veggies, plus eat a "high fiber" GF bread. I like the Glutino Flax Seed bread, or you could try a multigrain bread. They contain brown rice flour, flax seeds etc. Try finding one with the highest fiber content. If needed, as at a local health food store what they have in stock for you, or talk to a dietitian for assistance.

FYI: you know how years ago the big thing in the news was if you eat a high fiber diet, your chances of getting colon cancer will decrease? Not true! This came out last year and the study said there is no difference in someone eating a high fiber diet and those who don't get enough in the percentage of the population getting colon cancer. I'm honestly not sure if it is different with those of us with celiacs disease, but I thought it was very interesting after all those years of telling us to increase our fiber to prevent cancer, then it came out it really didn't make a difference!

All the best,

Pyeway
