Water Kefir Videos
Water Kefir is a necessary addition to growing a gluten-free sourdough starter. It kickstarts the bacterial/yeast activity and acts as a preservative for the starter. By itself it’s a light and delicious tonic that helps repopulate the intestines with friendly bacteria. Drink small amounts of it, 1-2 ounces at a time.

Cooking Series: Building Layers of Flavor
If you have food sensitivities you know how challenging it can be to create beautiful, healthy food while on a restricted diet. Many of us have to carefully, and continually, rotate our food choices so we don't develop new sensitivities.
I've put together a cooking system that will teach you to:
- cook nutritious food that is easy on your digestion
- cook food that has rich flavors
- cook economically with little waste
- cook desserts that are actually good for you
- use freezing and fermentation to help rotate your food choices
Lessons include recipes to download and videos to watch at a time of your choosing.
All recipes are free of gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, yeast, and peanuts. I do not use sweeteners or starch flours in the food recipes, except small amounts of sweeteners in the dessert recipes. You can choose your preferred sweetener.

Lesson 3: Highly Digestible Beans with a recipe for Vegan Bean-Cashew-Mushroom Lasagna
Learn how soaking beans increases food value, taste and texture. Specially prepared beans elimninate the intestinal distress usually associated with beans. Use beans in a highly flavorful multi-layered dish, Beans-Cashew-Mushroom Lasagna.
Lesson 4: Gluten-Free Grains
I present the gluten-free grains that I use in my everyday meals: amaranth, brown rice, quinoa, sorghum, teff and buckwheat.
A preparation chart and video are included in the lesson.
Lesson 5: Learn to Saute
My favorite cooking method is the pan saute because it is quick, flavorful and nutritious with easy clean up. I saute veggies with meat, veggies with fish, veggies with beans and veggies with leftovers. I'll use the saute method for 1 or 2 people or as much as 10 people!
