Comment on My Story: Life & Health by Chantal.

Thank you, Dagmar, for saying hi! And yes, the journey to figuring out what is the root cause of our digestive issues can be exhausting as it seems to be a never-ending battle. Did you ever consider getting tested to see if you have the celiac genes? It wouldn’t necessarily tell you if you do have celiac disease, but if you don’t have one or both genes, then at least you could rule out the possibility. I took the test twice, and I do have the genes, so does one of my boys.

Hi Melody! Thank you so much for taking the time to say hi! It means a lot to me! I’ve kept so much about what I go through for too long! And, you’re right, many of my most troublesome symptoms I often keep to myself. The thing is, why do we do that? It’s not normal to feel this way 🙁 Have you seen my new videos on YouTube? It took me a lot of courage, but I finally decided to share a little more about my health story on a new personal channel. You can search Chantal Secours or follow this link:

Hi Lisa! Thank you so much for taking the time to write! I really appreciate it! I’m sorry that you, too, are experiencing health issues. It can be so consuming even when we try not to let it take over our lives. I’ve recently found out even more that will surprise you once I share. I’ve been struggling with sharing more of my story, but I will soon. I might even create a video… I have so much to share, and I’m almost ready to do it!

Thank you for your message! Yes, we are very close 😉 I’m happy that you were able to tweak the ingredients to make it work for you!

7-Inch Sourdough Boule (GF/V)
Hi! Thank you so much for your lovely review and rating! If you don’t want to replace the oat flour with chickpea flour (like you tried), you could increase the seed flour to replace the 80g. Or introduce another gluten-free or grain-free flour that you have. Ideally, replacing the oat flour with another light GF flour is best. Replace by weight (80g). Do you have teff flour? What about sorghum or millet flour. Almond flour is excellent if you’re not allergic. As for adding whole seeds and nuts, go for it! Once your dough is well mixed, you could fold in (by hand) some of your favourite seeds/nuts. Half a cup of each or so would work well.

Healthy Morning Glory Muffins (GF + Vegan)
Hi Nadia! You could leave them out or add something else that you like instead. If you’re not allergic to nuts, walnuts would be great! You could also increase that oats to compensate but leaving it out is fine. If you find the batter a little too thin without shredded coconut add just enough extra oats to help thicken the batter.

7-Inch Sourdough Boule (GF/V)
Hi! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment and rate the recipe! I appreciate it! For a free-form loaf, if you don’t have parchment paper, you could dust extra flour all over the boule to prevent it from sticking to your baking dish or Dutch oven. It should be fine. The only time it could get tricky is if your dough is very sticky. You could still dust/brush extra flour (brown rice flour is great) all over the boule. Finely ground GF cornmeal could also be used in the bottom of your baking dish the same way you would for a pizza crust.

Gluten-Free Sourdough Starter
Hi! Using room temperature filtered water (around 75-85°F) will work well. A little warmer is fine too but not hot.
