Since the holiday season is fast approaching, I thought I would write a post about Paleo flours.
I purchased these cute glass containers at Hobby Lobby for around $2 a piece. I think this makes storing the flours easier. From left to right, I have: cassava flour, arrowroot flour, coconut flour, and almond flour. I like to search around at different stores and online to see which places have the best prices on these flours. I got the almond flour and coconut flour at Wal-mart and I got the cassava flour and arrowroot flour on Amazon.
Cassava flour: gluten free, grain free, & nut free, used as a 1:1 substitute for flour
Arrowroot flour: gluten free, grain free, & nut free, used as a thickener, easily digested
Coconut flour:gluten free, grain free, & nut free, high in fiber, slow digesting carbs
Almond flour:gluten free & grain free, a little higher in protein, low carb, contains higher amounts of manganese, vitamin e, and monounsaturated fats
What is your favorite flour to bake or cook with? p.s. these are the four flours I use for my Paleo waffles.
This is a picture of my dinner from Wednesday night. My dad and I made dinner: grilled pork tenderloin, grilled shrimp, and a salad.
This was my plate for one of my Thanksgiving meals. I had turkey, shrimp cocktail, my homemade chicken pepper nachos, fruit, veggies, and olives.
My youngest sister took this snap chat on our way to Thanksgiving.
I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving. I cannot wait to share some recipes with you for Christmas. This week will be week 2 of BBG (Bikini Body Guide) for me! WHOO!
