As I bounded home (as rambunctiously as one can with a half case of peaches and a whole lot of foraged farmers’ market booty), my mind fluttered with peach fantasies: cobbler, pie, salsa, smoothies and facials. Why stop there? I would happily be barefoot and pregnantless in the kitchen!
After scavenging the fridge and coming across yellowing lime and bending ginger, the choice was clear: an Asian inspired peach salsa or a ginger-lime peach pie. “Definitely pie,” a ravenous voice cried out from deep within the recesses of my sweet starved self; even if a little embarrassed with the extremely non-local flavor enhancers. Gluten free, processed sugar free, whole grain, vegan, organic, ginger-lime peach pie, of course. Let the gluttony begin!
Yes, it is possible to eat without wheat! North American culture is overly reliant upon grains. Yes, a gluten free gourmet can replace gluten containing grains and flours in her diet with gluten free grains and flours; however, it is preferable to eat whole grains in moderation only and consume most of your body’s carbohydrate needs from vegetables instead. So, with that in mind… would you like some ideas?
