A SCOOP on Pancakes
And speaking of pancakes, if you would like gluten-free, Pamela's Baking and Pancake Mix makes great pancakes.
I've decided to move towards using less wheat, or rather, less gluten. It seems that more and more people are having digestive problems at a young age - irritable bowel syndrome, diverticulitis, and more. A recent study showed that intolerance of wheat gluten is 4 times more likely today than it was in the 1950's. Since human genetics can't change that fast, it's assumed it has to do with the way wheat is grown or processed. The wheat we now eat has been genetically modified to produce bigger kernels and more gluten. Hello! It's not nice to mess with Mother Nature!
I sure did stray from the topic on this post! I guess, just like in life, one thing leads to another.
