Baking for PCOS Update!
In my post Nouveau Boulanger I stated that kamut flour is a good alternative to regular flour for PCOS girls- I was mistaken. It is better for you than regular flour but it is not gluten-free. I read on another blog that it was okay to eat, but apparently the author of that blog was mistaken too. A better alternative is garbonzo bean flour: it has the highest protein level of any flour (at least that I know of. My sister introduced it to me and she's been dealing with the crazy PCOS diet alot longer than me). Brown rice flour and almond flour are also awesome alternatives! Soon I'll be making and posting some wonderful biscuits and muffins that my big sis gave me the recipes for. Happy cooking!
