One day I just happen to stumble across an article about “Gluten” and how it effects some people. Then, I went to the internet to research the effects of gluten and was totally surprised by the effects of it. Symptoms of gluten sensitivity included bloating, abdominal discomfort, pain or diarrhea and some articles even say that wheat gluten can cause weight gain ! So, start learning a little more information about “gluten” or “wheat gluten”. There are many “gluten- free” foods and recipes available to eat. Below are two of my favorites. Enjoy them and become more aware of what you are putting in your body.
1. Gluten-Free Pancakes.
- 1 egg
- 1 1/4 cup buttermilk
- 2 tbsp oil
- 1 tbsp honey, fruit juice concentrate or sugar
- 1 1/2 cups brown rice flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
Beat egg until frothy. Add buttermilk, oil, and honey and beat until well blended.
In another bowl mix brown rice flour and the remaining dry ingredients. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the liquids. Stir until well blended. Do not over stir. Batter will be slightly lumpy.
Lightly grease a frying pan and fry pancakes. Serve with your favorite Fruity Preserves.

Schools are filled with some really great kids who are eager to learn and some awesome dedicated educators.
However, schools are also filled with some disrespectful students who are interested in everything except being educated.
Some teachers say that parents are the child’s primary teacher and the child’s behavior at school reflects their parents’ educational values.
Some parents solely hold teachers accountable for their child’s failures in school .
WHAT’S YOUR SOLUTION FOR THE PARENTS VS TEACHERS PROBLEM?
