    Information on the various flours and starches. I love baking, but I don’t want to have 20 different kinds of flour on hand. For instance, if a recipe calls for tapioca starch, can corn starch or potato starch be substituted? And is it a 1:1 exchange?

    Family friendly, not using too many ‘odd’ flour choices. Oh, we have many GF flour choices, but when ‘every’ recipe in a magazine calls for a different blend, every month, it just gets to be too tiring. Foods that are healthy, but that a family really will eat! Creative, economical packed school lunch ideas are always welcome.

    Hello- First of all I am super excited about this magazine. It really looks like my former company’s Every Day Food (clean, simple, and delish) but 100% Gluten Free- Yea!!! Would love to see more holiday recipe, meal planning for traveling, of course all the latest product reviews. I would also love to have some focus on how easy this lifestyle is by using all your old recipes and subbing out the non gf ingredients for gf products. I was so overwhelmed with gluten free recipes because lets face it they have a million steps and ingredients. I have learned to convert all my recipes with zero issues (except some of my baked goods- that takes more practice and testing than meals). I really wish we could promote King Arther flour more too- Bob’s Red Mills is not keeping up to date and I find every time I eat someones food who used Bob’s it tastes like a gluten free recipe from the 80’s. King Arther has a fantastic product and things taste good. GF doesn’t mean tasteless cardboard- GF should be easy as a piece of cake! Also Simple Gluten Free Magazine should focus on food presentation! This food driven world, foodies, food bloggers, everyday people have become so prominent so lets make the Gluten Free Pinterest world even more beatuful! ( Can’t wait to get my hands on this magazine!!! Courtney

    I always love any gluten-free recipes that celebrate clean eating and leaving out processed foods and other filler junk. Too many times gluten-free recipes suggest adding in so much stuff that just isn’t good for us and isn’t natural. I especially love gluten-free recipes that are fun for anyone and everyone, gluten-free or not, no special flours, gums or starches, just naturally gluten-free without any messing with it 🙂 Congrats on being a contributor, what an honor!

    GF/CF, refined sugar free and grain free options… there are so many unhealthy, sugar laden GF fillers that are just worsening the inflammatory process! Our goal is to improve health and digestion, not cause additional harm to the body by replacing gluten with sugar and nutrient sparse filler. I would also love tips on how to vacation GF (both nationally and internationally) especially when you are faced with buffets. Finally, tips on entertaining GF (especially with holidays coming) is always nice… our non-GF friends and family might never know the difference!

He is allergic to gluten, dairy, soy, egg, corn, beans (legumes), tree nuts, peanuts, shellfish, cranberries… So many things! Bread is one of the things I have not been able to make for him.

    I have been eating gluten free for three years, and truthfully, there is nothing in that diet that I miss. However, regular cookbooks have a strong grain and gluten component and gluten free cookbooks tend to focus on substitutes for those things – basically making a gluten-y product gluten free. I’d like to get a real recipes for meals that are naturally gluten free, without have to get a magazine that I can only use half the recipes from, and the rest require tweaking.

    More recipes and choices involving alternative, healthy grains (hello, buckwheat! teff!) — rather than all sorts of fillers (tapioca starch? potato starch?) and those with poor nutritional profiles (ugh – white rice, corn…). Articles that encourage people to try NEW things rather than just trying to replace things.

    These are all things I work on with my clients and it’s frustrating how much processed gluten-free items are out there that are so unhealthy. 🙁
