Gluten-Free Goodness

I’m not going to give anything away, but I’ve got to tell you something:

The Letchworth Sisters Wellness test kitchen has been spreading the most fantastic aromas throughout our home….

Debra has been working extra-hard to put together some of her best recipe ideas for great tasting gluten-free desserts.

Because here’s the thing:

Most of us don’t need to worry about gluten in our fresh meats, fruits or veggies.

What we resist giving up is bread, pasta … and cakes and cookies.

But how do we make them healthier, while still ensuring that they taste good?

Because let’s face it – nobody wants a bunch of gluten-free recipes that taste like cardboard.

We want our gluten-free foods to taste as good as the ones we’ve known and loved for years.

And since we want to make the transition easy for you – we don’t want to leave you with a (literal) mouthful of excuses! – we want to be certain that the recipes we create for our upcoming gluten program actually taste great!!

So how do we do that without sacrificing healthy ingredients?

(Hint:  I offer suggestions, then stay out of the way while Debra works her culinary magic….)

All kidding aside, we seek out high-quality alternatives to the usual gluten-containing grains and refined sweeteners.

And guess what?

Debra has created some truly phenomenal combinations:  She’s been experimenting with gluten-free grain and nut flours, and some truly “outside the box” unique ones.

Now granted, not all of these alternatives will be available to everyone, but she’s going to offer suggestions for substitutions as well as resources for where to find some of the more unusual ingredients.

Most people have access to the Internet, and you can find pretty much everything online these days – almost all of it available just at Amazon!!

We’ve been reaching out to several companies – some of whom make products we recommend, either because we use them ourselves or because they use clean ingredients – and we’re getting a phenomenal response.

We’re contacting local businesses that make gluten-free foods, and those that sell them.

Debra and I are committed to providing you with delicious recipes if you want to create your own gluten-free meals at home, and information on where to find already prepared foods if you don’t have as much time to spend in the kitchen as you would like.

The more we reach out, the more contacts we make, the more passionate we become about what we’re putting together!!

We don’t just want to give you lists of foods and ingredients to avoid, or “aliases” to be on the lookout for – although we will certainly be sure to share that kind of information.

But we want you to have the knowledge and confidence so you can easily do this on your own….

We don’t want to just hand you a fish (gluten-free, of course!) – we want to teach you how to fish!

We want you to know where to find the gluten-free goodies that are readily available, and also how to create your own.

There’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to enjoy the same tantalizing aromas we’ve been inhaling over the past few weeks.

Why can’t you have your gluten-free cake and eat it too?  Or cookies, or banana bread, or….

      We can make a deal — besides, it wouldn’t hurt to have somebody else test a couple of them. Will contact you as far as contributing some to the program recipe guide or as a bonus, with full credit to you.
