Coconut Flour

Sunday, May 20, 2012

Coconut oil is one of the greatest oils to cook with.  It has a long shelf life unlike most other oils.  The health benefits are wonderful.  Did you know that coconut oil is made up up 50% lauric acid?  Lauric acid is the medium chain fatty acid found in breast milk.  It works to strengthen the immune system and works to destroy disrupting fungus and bacteria.  Besides breast milk, coconut oil is the only other food source that contains high amounts of lauric acid.  Cheap vegetable oils are being used in replacement of coconut oil which could be one of the reasons we see so much more sickness these days.



Gluten Free Baking & Pancake Mix

This mix is by far one of my favorites.  Whether you need to eat gluten free or not, this will become a favorite!  I have used this mix to make crepes, muffins, pancakes, waffles, cinnamon rolls, biscuits, banana bread and pumpkin cake.  Baking gluten free has never been so easy.

If you sign up for Amazon's Subscribe and Save program, the pricing on this mix is the cheapest I have found anywhere.  It is even less expensive than when it goes on sale at my local Sprout's and Whole Foods.
