If you’ve never made your own flour before, don’t be intimidated. It’s super easy, and practically foolproof. You can use these flours pretty much anywhere you’d use other flours (except coconut flour), though results will vary depending on the recipe. Use plantain if you are on a low-FODMAP diet. This recipe is for plantain flour, but you can use the same amount of yam or sweet potato for different types of flour.
Struggling with thyroid disease?
Why Do I Still Have Thyroid Symptoms? by functional medicine practitioner Datis Kharrazian is single-handedly responsible for my improved health over the past few years. It introduced me to the connection between autoimmune disease and lifestyle factors like diet at a time when my doctors were telling me there was nothing wrong with my thyroid even though I had high antibodies. This book gave me the information I needed to get the right tests ordered and seek proper treatment. It’s a must-have guide for anyone who has already been diagnosed with thyroid disease, who is at risk due to family history, or who strongly suspects they may have it but isn’t sure where to start. I can’t recommend it enough!
