Do We Need Gluten Free Personal Care Products?

There has been some mixed opinions on whether or not a Gluten Free person needs Gluten Free Personal Care Products.  My naturopathic suggested that whatever you cannot eat, you should not put on your body either.  So for safety sake, I use Gluten Free shampoos and hand creams….

GMO and Gluten Free Foodshttp://glutenfreeveganliving.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/Corn-Stalk-2.jpg

I find it very annoying when people say, or worse yet, post on the web, that switching to Gluten Free is the healthiest thing they can do — regardless of what they eat.  There are plenty of bad gluten free foods out there that are far from healthy.   Of course, for us gluten intolerant or celiac folks , we don’t have a choice to whether or not we eat gluten.  But how about the QUALITY of the Gluten Free foods you are eating.  Did you know that LOTS of Gluten Free foods contain GMO…

No-Bake ‘Cheesecake’ Bars

If you are like me, there are some things, like No-Bake Cheesecake Bars, that I really miss since going Gluten Free and Vegan.  So I notice when I find a Cheesecake recipe will fit into my special diet.  After all, why should be go without all the good tasting stuff just because we chose to eat healthier?…

Eggless, Gluten Free Honey Cake Using Buckwheat and Coconut Milk Recipe. Originally posted here: http://elrasbaking.blogspot.com/2012/09/vegan-gluten-free-honey-cake-using.html?showComment=1346864585541
  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/4 rice flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamoms
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup honey (or maple syrup)
  • 1/4 cup turbinado sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon brown rice vinegar
  1. Preheat oven to 350 ℉.
  2. In a medium size bowl, mixed together the following dry ingredients: buckwheat flour, tapioca flour, rice flour, cinnamon, ginger, cardamoms, baking powder, baking soda, and kosher salt. Mix using a hand whisk. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl add honey (or maple sugar), turbinado sugar, brown sugar, coconut milk, canola oil, and brown rice vinegar. Using a hand whisk, mix until well blend.
  4. Pour this mixture into flour mixture, mix just enough to blend the ingredients together.
  5. Spoon into prepared cup cake paper molds.
  6. Bake in the middle rack for 15 to 20 minutes (depending the size of mold you are using). Or, until cake tester inserted in the middle comes out with a few crumbs cling to it.
  7. Remove from oven, and cool for a two minutes in the molds, then turn onto a wire rack to cool completely. Just before serving, drenched the cooled cake into cinnamon sugar if desire.


As you can probably guess, I would use coconut oil instead of the canola oil.

Also, I agree with the author that coconut milk is the best (Almond milk is also good, but unfortunately, I am allergic to almonds!! 🙁 )

How to Use Coconut Milk:

Recipes, Tips, and Best Brands

Alisa Fleming ~ Coconut milk is a wonderful food and a truly amazing ingredient for anyone who is dairy-free or vegan. But, many people wonder how to use coconut milk? I recently posted about a great deal on Thai Kitchen Organic Coconut Milk (I bought two orders right away!), and a reader asked this question. That very evening, a friend asked me how to use coconut milk when she spotted a few unpacked cans on my counter. I knew it was time to demystify the powers of coconut milk!

Types of Coconut Milk

First, the three basic types of coconut milk on the market:

Full-Fat Canned Coconut Milk …

Light Canned Coconut Milk …

Coconut Milk Beverage …


This writer finishes her article with a list of sweet and savory dishes using coconut milk.  I think I will go try some now ….


Truth About Milk

Since finding out I was casein intolerance, I have been interested in the different types of milk available.  Here is an excellent Squidoo lens on the good, bad and ugly about milk

Dairy Milk

Is cow’s milk an appropriate food for humans?

Many people still consume substantial amounts of dairy products and government policies still promote them, despite scientific evidence that questions their health benefits and indicates their potential health risks.

Cow’s milk is the number one allergic food in the country. It has been well documented as the cause in diarrhea, constipation, cramps, bloating, gas, gastrointestinal bleeding, iron-deficiency anemia, eczema, asthma, acne, fatigue, sinus and ear infections.


Personally, I prefer Coconut milk — the kind you find in the dairy case next to the cow’s milk.  My husband likes Hemp milk and coconut milk.  Sometimes we make our own milk from nuts.  What about you?
