Promoting better health through dietary intervention, by eliminating foods such as dairy, gluten, and yeast, can be of great benefit for a number of chronic health concerns.
According to a recent issue of Your Life, the newsletter of The Living Sensibly Foundation (www.livingsensibly.org), even potentially devastating disorders, such as some cases of autism and schizophrenia, can be lessened on special, restricted diets.
Here is my favorite brown rice muffin recipe:
BROWN RICE MUFFINS
2 cups brown rice flour (freshly ground is best)
3 teaspoons baking powder (aluminum free, such as Rumford brand)
2 tablespoons Sucanat, maple syrup, or other natural sweetener
1 or 2 eggs
1 cup milk
¼ cup melted butter
Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl. In a separate, small bowl, combine the eggs, milk, melted butter, and liquid sweetener if used. Mix well and pour the batter into oiled or buttered muffin tins. Bake at 400 F for about 15 minutes. Makes 12.
