Just thought I’d put my feeling out there. I hate this. I mean I HATE this. I’m extra emotional today but right now I’m crying at the fact I cant make a simple pizza crust and eat with my family. I bought rice flour..it had all this stuff in it. When I look up a recipe it says to add all that junk in it. Well what if it already does?? I loved my pizza crust recipe so I just dumped the stupid package of rice flour in along with everything else and just let it sit 10 min, then plopped it into a pan. It looks disgusting. It’s white and pasty. I can’t even imagine it tasting even remotely like anything pizza crust related.
I bought a mill to grind my own wheat..wasted money in my eyes now. I have 50 lbs of wheat berries waiting to be ground..wasted money. I cant eat peanut butter and jelly or anything else I normally do for lunch because I cant eat bread. Right now I’m eating pb&j on rice cakes which has more ingredients then I want and added salt that makes it taste nasty. The mixes to make bread are $6 + and are full of stuff I wouldnt dare put into bread anyway. Same with the actual loafs. I read yesterday that one loaf said it was naturally crispy like toast..no toaster needed. Um eww.. wheres the soft fluffy bread?
I know I’m just in a mood, but I dont want to add Xanthum Gum or Guar Guar to products. How natural is that? Xanthum is from corn sugar..it screams GMO. I am stuck eating next to nothing because EVERYTHING seems to have gluten in it. So my choice at the moment is when this crust doesnt turn out..I mean really how could it? I will trash $5 it took to make it, grind some wheat, make my normal pizza crust, eat it, and feel absolutly horrible afterwards and the entire next day. Why? because right now, the thought of looking up yet another recipe in which I dont have ingredients for because these “flours” dont act the same and you have to add in a ton of stuff to substitute for the one natural ingredient I”m allergic to, is just too much.
If you are gluten free, I’m so sorry. I cant get over that I cant have gluten anymore..its a fight tooth and nail for me. Its like telling a girl she can no longer look at or wear a diamond or you cant look, smell, or taste chocolate again for the rest of your life! Thank God I can still eat chocolate because that’s what I’m turning too!!
Share recipes if you want. Eventually I’ll give in to some stuff. Its just too overwhelming to learn to use non grain flours. I’m also sensitive to eggs…yes even my own so that makes it even harder. I can eat them like once a week though.
Happy Homesteading!! 😀
