I have the CR4YT cookbook and was going through ALL the recipes today. I did a major shopping. Anyway I saw many Spelt recipes and other bread type recipes. Has anyone tried these and how did they turn out?
We have A's and one O here. I really need to try something for pizza for my son.
Currently I have him dairy free except occ.goat cheese.
Corn free Wheat and mostly gluten free.
Nightshade free also.
Not easy to cook for this kid but I wanted to start from taking it all out and then added it back a little at a time.

We have given him some Spelt stuff and GF foods( most have corn or potato in them unfortunately)
He is Blood tested with NO wheat or Gluten allergies but has major joint pains--still no diagnosis--all arthritis, immunology,lyme and such tests negative. Calcium and magnesium normal. On Thyroid meds for Hypothyroid. Minimal REM sleep.
hypopnia.

Have you used the both spelt flours?

I also noticed in the cookbook that brown rice pastas and tortillas are not mentioned or rarely.
Aren't these good for both A and O?

I prefer white spelt flour since the bran and germ of wheat are the most lectin laden, I figure what the hey, I'll use the white spelt.

The recipes call for white spelt AND whole spelt. I am not having luck finding both. I will have to make the LONG trip to WFS. but not until AFTER the holidays,that road is crazy during normal times of the year.

You can substitute spelt for any wheat recipe, so find yourself a great homemade wheat crust recipe and just trade it out.  White spelt, like white wheat, is stretchier and beautiful.

kamut is also a great substitute.

I made kamut pancakes for myself, oat pancakes for my daughter, and amaranth/tapioca flour pancakes for my son for supper tonight.  Now Daddy has the stomach virus, so he's in bed while I cook dinner with a 100 degree fever.  Fun.  Hey--100 feels a whole lot better than the 102 I had yesterday.

Ribbit sorry to hear that you have sickness in the house. It is hard being the Mom and not getting a sick day.
Thank you all for the flour substitution ideas. Has anyone made the recipes as listed in the book?

We have made MANY of the recipes.  My husband and I both prefer white spelt over the whole grain.  We were using white spelt for our pasta up until we ran out before our big cook day.  The health food store we go to was sold out so we substituted the whole grain.  It was very grainy.  That just made us more hooked on white spelt.  We just bought a 25 lb. bag so we won't run out again.  The bread machine recipe for spelt bread is pretty good, toast or sandwiches and then croutons for the left over.  I substituted a bit more white spelt than it suggests.  

Rice, oat and quinoa have been good for us as well.

Good luck on your future grain adventures.

We are very lucky, in all actuality we have both lost more than we thought we would.  I am up to 14 lbs. and my hubby is at 12 lbs. in only 3 weeks.  We will keep it up!
