Thanks Robin and Melissa! I feel a little more relaxed about the whole thing. Our kids have been asking us to get a milk cow for awhile but I keep wondering if I’m ready for that! I guess I’ll just pray and let God determine the timing. I could see us getting the CALPC disease too.
Honestly, Bridget, I don’t know HOW it does. I asked Sue Becker of Bread Beckers a few years ago about soaking grains and she said it wasn’t necessary (actually she was pretty…let’s just say she had an opinion on this topic.) She said that a triple rise would do the same thing if it concerned me and that all the hoopla on soaking grains had really scared a lot of people off from doing their own grains. I told her that, if all that was necessary, I probably wouln’t be doing mine either. I do have a life, after all. Shortly after that conversation, she wrote an article on it. http://info.breadbeckers.com/phytic-acid/
Also Beth Holland in her Bread for Life cookbook says, “I recommend a triple rise bread since it frees up trace minerals to be absorbed by the body by breaking down the phytic acid inherent in yeasted wheat breads.” So that’s what I do IF I have time. If not, I don’t worry about it. I don’t think God makes food complicated.
Thank you, RobinP, for the links to Becker/Holland websites. I was contemplating ordering Sue Gregg’s books but a few things keep holding me back….constant revisions; information is placed throughout all her books so you have to buy all of them in order to get a complete picture (very pricey!!); and lots of information is repeated in each of the books. She now uses the Nourishing Traditions ideas in her books, thus the reason for yet another revision.
Can anyone compare the three authors cookbooks ~ Sue Becker, Beth Holland, Sue Gregg ~ and why you do or don’t like them?
I’m in the same situation as many who have posted on this topic….
Thank you so much!
I have all the cookbooks. I use the Bread Becker’s all the time and I use Beth Holland’s often as well. I like the recipes. Plus the fact that I have an Electrolux DLX and many of their recipes tell you how to use this machne in a recipe makes it easy for me. Beth is a southern girl (I’m in TN) and she’s taken many “down-home” recipes and adapted them for whole food cooking.
I rarely use Sue Gregg’s cookbooks. I can’t stand the way she writes out her recipes. Just give me the ingredients at the top and directions below. I really had no idea that she had revised them so many times. I’ve had mine for quite awhile. She has a lot of information in them, some of which is helpful. Some confuses me and some I just don’t agree with. I have Nourishing Traditions as well but it’s the same with it. I agree with some and reject some. (I will NOT eat raw meat. ) LOL! I’m just a plain kind of girl and I think both of these make real food much more complicated than it needs to be.
One of the most balanced books I’ve read about healthy eating is What the Bible Says About Healthy Living by Dr. Rex Russell. His premise is simple: Eat what God gave us for food, don’t alter God’s design and avoid food addictions. I think people often give up on healthy eating because they read so much that is contradictory. I think if we would just remember those three concepts, we would put away the confusion and be able to prepare healthy meals for our families.missceegeeParticipant
I’m certainly no expert, but I agree with Robin regarding the layout of the Sue Gregg cookbooks, it’s awful! I gave the entire set away after only trying a handful of the recipes b/c of the way they are written.Psalm 100Member
Funny thing is….I bought and sold Sue Gregg’s books already, but I have had trouble finding alternatives for a long time; so, I was thinking I just might have to buy them again…..I, too, did not like the layout at all and all the flipping between books to find information was annoying. I am so thankful I saw this topic today. I will look into both the Becker/Holland books and add What the Bible Says about Healthy Living to my Amazon cart.
Thank you so much for the help!
I’ve heard really good things about this cookbook as well. If the link doesn’t work search Amazon for The Rodale Whole Foods Cookbook.
