Banana Loaf

I baked a banana loaf from Pamela's Pancake and Baking Mix. It was very good tasting (despite the fact that I forgot butter). It did not fall apart and be crumbly or have a crumby taste it was very delicious. It was also very easy to bake. I like Pamela's mixes because they vary with different recipes and make the food taste almost exactly the same as gluten food.

Breakfast Quinoa

I made Breakfast Quinoa this morning. It was a very good taste. The recipe was from a book called Gluten-Free Bible. The book has lots of great recipes, both easy and difficult. The breakfast quinoa is sweet but not too sweet and it is not a strong taste so it is perfect for breakfast time. It is not too hard to make. It took me about five minutes to make not including the fifteen minute cooking time. Quinoa is also very healthy for you. It is better than eating rice or wheat because it is a complete protein and a great source of fiber. A good brand to buy quinoa products from is Ancient Harvest Organic Quinoa.

I made a Gluten-Free Pineapple Upside Down Cake with Pamela's gluten-free cake mix. All of the Pamela's mixes are perfect and make the food come out neat and tasty. They also all come with different recipes that are delicious.

Celiac Disease

In case you don't know what Celiac disease is, it is an auto-immune disease where gluten (which is found in wheat, rye, and barley) breaks down the villi (which allows nutrients through the walls of the small intestine into the bloodstream) in the small intestine causing a person to become malnourished. Common symptoms are diarrhea, weight loss and vomiting, keep in mind that there isn't just digestive problems incorporated with Celiac Disease.
