Comment on My Story: Life & Health by Chantal.

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.

My Story: Life & Health
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!


My Story: Life & Health
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.

Yeast-Free Gluten-Free Vegan Bread
Hi Emily! Were you able to get the nutritional info on the yeast-free loaf? As of now, I don’t post those details in my recipe posts but might in the future.


Sorghum Sourdough Starter
Hi, KD! Thank you for reaching out! I’m happy to hear that your starter is almost ready! If you don’t want to use starches in your bread recipe, that’s ok, but your loaf will be a little denser. That being said, you might have to experiment with the combos of GF flours and ratios until you achieve a texture that you’re happy with.

Please note that I don’t use xanthan gum, so I am not the best to tell you how much to add. I suggest using as little as possible to being (maybe 1/4 tsp up to 1/2 tsp?). This, of course, will depend on the size of your loaf. Adding too much will make your bread very gummy and sticky.

Don’t forget a little sea salt if you can. Adding salt does help with the flavour.

Sorghum, millet and brown rice flour are similar in weight and texture. You could easily add one cup of each with one cup of starter. When adding the water or plant milk, go by feel. Add half a cup and mix. If it’s too dry, add another 1/4 to 1/2 cup mix and wait. If it’s still dry, add a little more. If by accident you add too much liquid, don’t worry. You can bake the dough mixture in a bread pan lined with unbleached parchment paper. For the first loaf, try the bread pan method. If you don’t add flaxseed meal or psyllium husk, the dough might have a batter-like consistency. This combo of GF ingredients might not create a dough that is manipulable by hand to create a free-form loaf.

Once your dough is mixed, you can let it rise/rest for a couple of hours before baking. You will have to play around with your rising times as well. Waiting two hours is a great start, then adjust after each bake. Take notes as you experiment to see what works best for you in your environment.

Here are two easier GF sourdough recipes you can reference. They are not the same as what you want to try, but they could offer you some guidance.

Gluten-Free Vegan Bread Machine Loaf
Hi Vera! Thank you for reaching out! That is strange, but I guess all machines are different. You can try the gluten-free setting on yours, but it will most likely mix, rise and then bake the dough for you. Don’t forget to attach the paddle if you try. If you don’t mind experimenting, it’s worth a try!


Yeast-Free Gluten-Free Vegan Bread
Hi Dee! I don’t know the exact nutrition values for this bread recipe. There are many online tools that could help us find out. Although, reducing starches and using seed flour or almond meal/flour (if you’re not allergic) in this recipe in place of some of the GF flours could help reduce the overall glycemic index of the recipe. You can leave out the 1 tablespoon of sugar in the recipe. If you would like more guidance, please let me know.
