Did you order any of the other butters? Looks good and you are right the Joyva is horrible. I am interested in the diet you are on. Can you share? I am not on organic but getting there and I know it is difficult to eliminate wheat/gluten... Thanks I am going to order the tahini...
I do have some Sunbutter (sunflower seed butter) and I do want to try the Almond butter, but I haven't yet. The one on that website is pretty expensive compared to the others ones..if you try it, let me know how it is!
I have been allergic to wheat and chicken for a few years, but I do think the gluten is causing me problems, really...I think the gluten causes many people many problems, because..basically...it is glue! And glue that can linger in your system and prevent the absorbing of vitamins and nutrients, which I'm severely anemic and wayyy low on many of the vitamins levels I was tested on earlier this year.
Has it made me feel better? Yes, I am starting to see that my sinuses are clearer and my eyes don't bother me as much, I've had less stomach aches than usual.
It is hard eliminating gluten..that crap is in so much of what we eat, and its only really here in America, other countries don't use as much gluten as we do.
Meghan (Lilymylove) has been a huge help to me and recommended many wonderful things, and a few other friends who are gluten intolerant.
One of my favorite gluten free foods are these:
The Glutino pretzels~ (and I do buy all of my snacks on amazon, cheaper and easier to find
) They taste like butter and I have to hide them from my family or they will gobble them up as we all agree they are much better than regular gluten/wheat pretzels. And I was never a pretzel eater before hand but I'm addicted now! These rice chips are yummy too:
The sea salt and Sesame Seaweed are really good (not sure how to describe the seaweed, but it taste like a dorito to me, but better)
I have been eating hummus just about everyday for lunch. 2 more bottles of tahini came in yesterday (I am trying to perfect my recipe, so I'm searching out the best tasting tahini)..
Flynn, I ordered these chemical/additive free garbanzo beans:
I think I bought the last case of garbanzo on Amazon last week for $16.71, I wouldn't pay $30 or whatever that other seller wants for them, but if you see them somewhere, try them! I just have to add a bit more sea salt to my hummus.
Meghan, Roasted red pepper sounds yum! I have been adding handfuls of cilantro and cumin, maybe I will try the red pepper today.....I was planning on roasting the garlic for this batch. How long does it take for garlic to roast? I over cooked it last week when I made the butternut squash/pear soup. I roasted it with the squash and onion and it came out like a rock!!
, so I'm guessing...maybe 10-15 minutes? oh vey!
