As a matter of fact, I can find no referendce to whole wheat or any other kind of wheat flour and do not understand why.
If you know of any place I can find glycemic index numbers for almond flour or almond meal, flaxseeds and other products that are not wheat, please advise — with all the attention on these products, I do not understand the void — can you help me? The University of Sydney has an excellent website full of glycemic index info. If I make my own bread or dumplings, pancakes, muffins etc which flours, if any, are low GI?

Try to increase the soluble fibre content by partially substituting flour with oat bran, rice bran or rolled oats and increase the bulkiness of the product with dried fruit, nuts, muesli, All-Bran or unprocessed bran.

I hope this helps! WeeWeeSnowbunny, November 6, Kick start for portion and food group reminder. These frozen products taste so much better than the shelf stable kits. I just don't care for the bars and many other items in the shelf stable kits. I was worried this would take up a lot of space in the freezer, but it isn't that much packaging.
I don't like that the program says there is no measuring as there are many items you need to purchase in addition to what is included, and that needs to be measured. If everything was included in kit it would be awesome. Got it to get rid of the holiday weight I gained.
