Cover them with oil. Mix rice protein and salt. Shake. Bake. Taste. Yum. Ok friends, here's what we have.
Crash. Just a second. Warning lights are sounded: free glutamate. The kitchen suddenly becomes a chemistry lesson as a mom with life experience and a chemist chime in sharing their knowledge.
The chemist provides a useful link ( http://www.thehealthyhomeeconomist.com/top-five-foods-to-never-buy-at-the-healthfood-store/ ) and says that what is written there makes sense from a chemistry point of view. (What would I do without you my friend?). The concerned mom who researched at length to find an answer for her son, sent very informative information about excitotoxins: http://stroyan.net/lisasblog/category/nutrition/excitotoxins/ .
Just when I found myself relaxing and relieved to have discovered many things that I had to change for my family's dietary needs, just when we have seen tremendous progress but have hit a brick wall in certain areas, precious tidbits come along. I am not sure how this will affect my food preparation. It certainly makes me wonder if where my family is still struggling with illness and emotional challenges can find relief through further learning about how food interacts with the body and making yet more changes.
And so the journey continues, with sign posts and warnings from other travelers along the way.
Thank you ladies for the information you passed my way. Learning and growing from each other is one of those amazing gifts given to us. May we all benefit from each other always.
The new recipe without rice protein ;)
