Gnowfglins eCourse

I like to periodically mention the eCourse I help teach, just in case anyone is interested! is run by an online friend of mine. She has constructed an entire course to teach people how to cook using traditional food preparation methods. The science behind this is fascinating, and she explains it as you go. In just a couple of weeks she's starting a class on cultured dairy - how to make your own sour cream, butter, cheese...pretty interesting and fun!

I have been involved in the current class on sourdough. For those interested, I have converted all of the sourdough recipes in the course to gluten free recipes. And they are delicious! Pizza crust (good pizza crust!), biscuits, donuts, bread, waffles, and lots more. The sourdough serves two purposes - leavening that doesn't require you to use store-bought yeast (which some people are sensitive to), and also reducing the phytic acid content in whole grains which keeps your body from absorbing minerals. This is the way people made bread for thousands of years. They had good reasons for it. :)

If you sign up through the links here, I will receive a small referral fee. Just so ya know. :) I really believe in the information in this course. I wholeheartedly recommend it! Subscriptions start at just $10/month.

Also, one of the most time-consuming aspects of this way of eating, is planning your meals. Though the prep time isn't really longer, it has to be done in advance. That's why developed their handy meal plans. Each week, they send out the recipes for the week, along with a sheet where you can write down all your meals and prep steps for the week. This is a HUGE time-saver, not to mention it takes the stress out of figuring out what's for dinner.

Check out for more information, and subscribe to the blog there - it's great info and I have occasionally guest-blogged. :)


  1. Yeah sure that's great and everything, but how on earth do you pronounce it?! ;)

  2. Heehee! It's actually an acronym. They say it Guh-Nowf-glins. :)
