I have to add a caveat.  They use aluminum free baking powder which means there is some corn starch in there.  I use this as a treat and consider the tiny bit of corn starch no big deal.  It would be nice to see if they could switch to an alternate "baking powder" such as arrowroot, cream of tartar and baking soda.

I was thinking that someone contacted Sami's Backery and found out that the baking powder didn't have corn starch in it, but my memory may be wrong about this. Can anyone confirm that or maybe someone should contact them and ask (again) and suggest they fully describe the aluminum free baking powder on their website.

Don, will do!

The package also states that it is baked in a bakery that has wheat/gluten products.  Celiacs beware.

Hi Vicki, where does one buy the Sami's Bakery tortillas? I've never seen them at my local Whole Foods, TJ's, or HFS.


I buy them at Earth Fare or a local Health Food Store.

To me they do not taste like a regular tortilla
and are more brittle making them difficult to work with.

However, I can use them without suffering any
notable health consequences.

I still longed for a more conventional tortilla
and tried Food for life life sprouted corn tortilla.
This was a big mistake!!

This is what the sprouted corn totilla contain:
Organic Sprouted Whole Kernel Corn, Filtered Water, Sea salt, Lime.

I can eat the Ezekiel 4:9 Tortilla from Food for Life
(these should be available in the frozen food section of Whole foods).
They are cheaper than Sami's, so I usually use these.
This is the ingredients:
Organic Sprouted Whole Wheat, Filtered Water, Organic Unhulled Sesame Seeds, Organic Sprouted Whole Soybeans, Organic Sprouted Whole Barley, Organic Sprouted Whole Millet, Organic Sprouted Whole Lentils, Organic Sprouted Whole Spelt, Sea Salt.

Food for life also makes brown rice tortilla that I have not eaten. These contain safflower oil, an avoid for all nonnies.


MIfHI                            I follow a SWAMI diet.

The chips really do sound tasty. Has anyone tried them? I know it's subjective, but were they good?

I've tried several kinds of compliant chips but have been pretty disappointed with them all.

I empathize and sympathize with you. I was a vegan/vegetarian for about 20 yrs until 2 weeks ago. After MUCH soul/spirit meditation I decided to give this diet a try - as a O nonnie I knew what that meant. I can honestly say I do feel much stronger and better than I have in a long time. I try to eat mindfully and with great gratitude. Now I shall whine too. NO soy, hummas, vinegar ye gads!! How do people find condiments without wheat soy or vinegar? Thank goodness for my fondness of veggies. I am having some trouble with recipes for O non - I think this might be more fun if I could cook up some different dishes. What are your favorite things to eat?  "new at this whole business" Pam

Pamela,

Welcome and congratulations!

Hummus is easy to make with compliant beans.  Have you seen the Recipebase?  Here's a link:  http://www.dadamo.com/recipebase/recipebase.cgi

I'm so glad you are feeling better.  I know what a difficult decision it is to go back to eating meat, but maybe it will help to look at nature and realize that many animals do eat other animals and were designed to do so, to a greater or lesser extent (depending on the animal).  You can't fight city hall (a.k.a., Mother Nature) forever, or your own health can and usually does start to really suffer for it.  Like you said, what we CAN do is try to be very grateful and mindful of the food we are eating and try to buy meat that was humanely raised and killed.  But I know how hard it is.  Still, you are going by how nature designed you, so I don't think that can be wrong.  And the fact that you are feeling so much better is a good barometer of that, too, as usually nature will steer us in the right direction.

Well, instead of vinegar, you may have lemon juice, which I find is MUCH better in things like salad dressings anyway.  For hummus, you can make it with black-eyed peas or aduki beans and it comes out FANTASTIC!  As for soy, who needs it?  The heck with it, I say!

Pam, welcome and keep posting!

I had not been to the recipe link. Thanks so much. When I have more time I intend on really checking it out. The one thing that I have noticed that is surprising to me is how quickly the desire for sugar has dissipated. For years as a diabetic of course NO sugar, then when we all started counting carbs and a carb is a carb and so sugar within moderation could be added back in - I did. Mind you a plain cake donut and an occasional bite of this or that was all I was allowing myself. but that bite was oh so important. YOu know, the ole "if I exercise and hour I can have the donut" type of thing. Now its a fig or two. I am ordering the Live Right book today, decided to give others in town an opportunity to read it as I have been renewing the book continually over the last several weeks. With the help of the recipes and this website I think I can move on forward. It will be interesting to see at the end of the month time frame how I am doing. Thanks all for the advise! P
