What do You use Instead of Grains?

If I don’t use grains, what do I use?

I don’t have an all-the-time substitute. I simply don’t make the same types of foods I used to. However, I do have a few things on hand about 1/3 of the year. Usually for a few month period after the tax returns show up in my account. They are:

  • almond flour/meal
  • coconut flour
  • tapioca flour

These items aid me in trying new recipes. Paleo versions of pancakes, waffles, muffins, crepes, and desserts. I don’t eat such items often, but they are a real treat when I do.


Because these flours are expensive. And, even these paleofied versions would not be the healthiest choices if you were to eat them all the time.

What grain substitutes do you use, if any? In what ways do you use them?
