  1. Aside from using coffee grounds as marinade I read different opinions about coffee …. Yes on a gluten free diet I can drink coffee and then no coffee is not an option. Ok I give. Which one is it? Since i have recently started the gluten free protocol I have not had a cup of coffee in days.

  2. Sorry! You’re right that is confusing! Dry ground coffee is what you use. Then same grind that is used for regular coffee machines (not espresso).

  3. Plain coffee is gluten free, it’s what you add to it (like flavorings/syrups/etc) that can contain gluten. Here is a bit more info on it in this article: Coffee & Tea: Are They Safe?. As far as dieting, here I what I found on medical site regarding if coffee is good or not: “Caffeine has been considered a diuretic by experts and consumers for years. Some people believe that drinking caffeinated beverages will cause them to lose fluids so they can’t be counted as part of their daily intake. Others say that caffeinated beverages do not increase fluid losses.”

  4. Is this at last an answer re: what to do with those K-cups? Seems such a waste to send them to the landfill sites.

  5. We have a new tool you can use to customize the recipes you see on our site. Once you log in, go into the ‘My Account’ tab, then under ‘Do Something’, click on ‘My Preferences’. You can check off boxes for egg free (or any ingredients you don’t want in recipes), you can also choose only vegan recipes. Then hit save. Now only recipes that we have identified with those labels will appear. That should help narrow down your recipe choices! Under our Recipes tab in the Main Dishes, we have a Vegetarian category as well you can look through.
