Enzymes, hormones, collagen and hemoglobin- which has the vital job of transporting oxygen from our lungs to our cells are all made from proteins. Proteins are essential for our growth and good health.

When I was diagnosed with malabsorption syndrome stemming from gluten sensitivity I learned I had developed several symptoms of protein deficiency. That's why I try as hard as I can to make sure I get enough protein in my diet and add high-protein grains and flours to my gluten-free recipes.

Meat, poultry, fish, beans and eggs are all sources of high-quality proteins and some, but not all gluten-free grains, grain-like seeds and nuts are also good sources of protein. Learn more about the protein content of your favorite gluten-free grains and which grains you can add to your gluten-free recipes to increase protein content.

don’t mind. Could it be simply me or does it look as if like some of the responses look like they are left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting on additional social sites, I would like to keep up with anything new you have to post. Would you list of the complete urls of all your social pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
