You've got questions and we've got answers!

Q: What is yellow miso?

You can read this post and/or watch this video about miso; and you can read this post if you want an even deeper overview or to fully understand the difference between the color.

Q: What are your thoughts on eating baked potatoes? I read in The Starch Solution that there is nothing wrong with baked white potatoes if prepared plain and maybe a fat free dressing added to it. Thanks!

A: I LOVE potatoes. Eat them daily. They’re very healthy -- always have been, it’s what people put on them (sour cream, butter, cheese, bacon, etc) that can make them unhealthy.

Q: I am making the Gluten-Free Flour Blend (from EHH). If I want to make the Strawberry Cupcakes (from HHC) do I omit the baking powder, soda and salt?

A: NO! Use the blend in place of the flour but do not alter the recipe. Use the blend the way you’d normally use whole wheat flour.
