Frequently Asked Questions
Are there going to be gluten-free recipes?
At first there is going to be a mixture of gluten-free and gluten containing recipes, because to eat gluten-free has proven more difficult than expected.
Why you don’t eat soy?
Just as most vegan reject palm oil because of its environmental impact, so I reject soy. Soy erodes the soil and causes exhaustion of nutrients therefore it renders the soil unusable.
Why you don’t eat rice?
Well, rice has naturally high levels of arsenic and even though you can soak the rice and remove some of it, it is still a risk I’m not willing to take specially since rice is not rich in nutrients. I rather have quinoa or amaranth. For this same reason I do not use rice flour.
Why are your recipes with oats not categorize under “gluten-free”?
Tricky one! I know that most people consider oats to be safe to eat for people with celiac disease. Nevertheless it is forbidden to say so in Argentina and in New Zealand. As a matter of fact it should be so everywhere since oats contain gluten.
