Problems with Wheat

I am beginning to suspect that wheat is the culprit of various digestive difficulties that my family is experiencing. I have already switched from using whole wheat pastas to brown rice pastas, which seem to be easier to digest, and now I am searching for a good, everyday wheat-free bread recipe. Please leave a comment if you know of one! Thanks!

My father-in-law & brother-in-law are both Celiac's (they have an intolerance to wheat), and they told me to recommend this site - http://www.cookingbread.com/gluten_free.html

Hope it helps!

My son is gluten intolerant and I like the Bob's Red Mill site for recipes. You are going to HAVE to buy xanthan gum to get any sort of good texture though. It is expensive ($10) but lasts a while. I occasionally buy their gluten free flour blend but I also just mix my own out of rice, potato, tapioca, buckwheat......

Wheat, cereals and granola bars give me canker sores. I haven't really thought that it might cause stomach problems. I'll pay closer attention to that.

Wow! Stephanie, I get mouth ulcers too when I eat certain grains! Melissa, there are a number of cookbooks by author Betty Hagmann. One is the Gluten-Free Gourmet. I have an older edition that features bread recipes.
