DAIRY FREE WHIP CREAM
If you are trying to go dairy free, but still want a little “whipped cream” on your drink or keto-pie this holiday season, try my trick: Place a can of coconut milk in the fridge overnight. Gently remove from the fridge and open the can (cream will be on the top and coconut milk will be on the bottom). Scoop out only the cream and place into a medium sized bowl (leave the water in the bottom). Scrape the seeds from a vanilla bean into the coconut cream and sweeten to taste with a little Swerve Confectioners or stevia glycerite. Enjoy!
Testimony of the Day about Autism and Hair Loss
“My 9 yr old daughter with Down Syndrome is pretty high functioning and has minimal health issues but does have hypothyroidism since birth. She lost all her hair suddenly at age 5. We went through tests, celiac was negative, deficiencies negative, thyroid stable. At the same time, my third child was just born and my 3 yr old son was diagnosed with autism. I had gone back and forth trying the gluten free for my son, as well as casein free. But still seemed like I was going off anecdotal symptoms and no doctor on this end was going to tell me his issues were stemming from diet.
Meanwhile, the dermatologist wanted us to do a rogaine/steroid concoction on our daughter to grow her hair back. we just couldn’t do it. But after that, I started keeping the gluten minimal to none for all kids. Well her hair started growing back within 2 months of total hair-loss with no drugs. She still had some bald patches but has a cover of hair again. Some new loss had started a year ago, and she was still getting some snack that had gluten…but then I stopped that and noticed her hair loss stop. Still not making the connection until I read your book a few months ago! Now I truly believe it’s a gluten intolerance and/or diet-related. Oh and I forgot to mention the psoriasis patch she was diagnosed with (which no creams worked for) and a recurring rash on her buttocks for 2 yrs…gone after going gluten free. – Karen”
