Cook's Note: Once you reach Phase 3 and add ¼ of a teaspoon of guar gum or xanthan gum during step 2 of the recipe. If you're already in a later phase or are not on the diet you may add the gum during step 2 when making the recipe.[br][br]* You can substitute coconut milk or almond milk in place of brown rice milk.[br][br]** Most commercial baking powders contain cornstarch, which is not permitted in the first two Phases of this diet. Making your own baking powder enables you to make the recipes for baked goods found in Phase 2.
