I am a new vegan inspired by Alicia's book, and tasted my very first Seitan a few days ago. But now, I just watched a video with Dr. Frank Lippman saying how bad wheat and wheat gluten is for everyone. I'm confused. He said people think they are eating something healthy when they eat gluten and it is terrible for them.
I have just found the most AMAZING bakery. I was visiting California, I'm from Pennsylvania and came across an advertisement for "The Paleo Bread". I'm doing paleo diet which is very different than Vegan, sorry Alicia although you are my sole inspiration for living healthy and losing weight (got 40 lbs to lose) I cannot go Vegan, at least not right now. However! keeping you in mind, I found this amazing bakery, http://www.julianbakery.com/bread/, It bakes for VEGAN!!!!! the breads look amazing!
Paleo is very close to vegan when it comes to baked goods
Paleo Bread -Coconut, is organic, starch-free, grain free, gluten free, yeast free, soy free, dairy Free, and ideal for any diet. The Paleo Bread, Coconut, is the first starch free, gluten free, grain Free, low carb bread on the market!
They have a special section for vegan as they do Paleo, all the bread is baked fresh then shipped so it takes up to two weeks to get your order.
I'm actually allergic to wheat and nuts,so there is a big list of things I cannot eat,including seitan and tempeh.I believe you can make it yourself,you know buying the whole soy beans,cooking them,etc,but it seems like a lot of work!
