Re: [RawPortland] Newbie introduction
Are you familiar with South River Miso Company? They make an Azuki Bean Miso, that is soy and gluten free. Their misos are so wonderful and come in glass jars. Here is a link for the Azuki Bean: http://www.southrivermiso.com/store/p/3-Azuki-Bean-Miso.html. Although it is available through the website only during certain times of the year, stores seem to carry it year round. I know that Alberta Co-op has it.

I'm glad to have found this group. We are not completely raw, by any
means, but experimenting. Other than the standard raw foods that most
people eat (fruit and veggies) I had not experienced raw food until I
ate at Cafe Gratitude in Berkeley this summer. My daughter is celiac
and we went there because it is gluten-free. I realized as I looked
at the menu that it was raw as well. The food was out-of-this world
fabulous. Although I was open, I did not expect it to be so
delicious. I bought their recipe book and everything in it has turned
out great on my first try. Am itching to get a food dehydrater, but
our condo kitchen is small.
Anyway in a nutshell: my husband has Type I Diabetes (but is extremely
healthy) and vegan (cheats on the eggs sometimes), gluten-free,
soy-free, yeast-free, sucrose-free. My daughter (almost 6) is
gluten-intolerant and sensitive to dairy, soy, & walnuts. I am
sensitive to dairy, soy, most oils. Yikes. So far we aren't aware of
any sensitivities in our twin boys (almost 3). We eat yummy food but
it is expensive.
Question: does anyone know of a good substitute for lecithin or miso?
It's out for most of my family and is a key ingredient in many of the
raw foods recipes I've seen.
I look forward to learning from all of you.
