A note about the Recipes.
Sometimes I get asked why a website called Grain Free Living uses gluten-free flours like quinoa and buckwheat. Although technically still grain free, some of these recipes would now be considered merely gluten-free, it really depends on your point of view. I am working on the categories so that recipes that are Paleo and AIP friendly are clearly labelled and the recipes that use pseudo-cereals are also clearly labelled. Thanks for your patience as I work to make this website more user-friendly.
You can read about my use of pseudo-cereals and why this website includes both gluten and grain free recipes by clicking button below.
