Juneteenth is a celebration of freedom, first celebrated in Texas starting in 1965. Under the terms of the 1862 Emancipation Proclamation, enslaved people were stated to be free.
We encourage you to celebrate with us on this special day!
Today we are sharing with you our beloved cornbread recipe. One that is gluten free and dairy free. Cornbread is deeply rooted dish dating back to slavey and also a universal favorite food and staple in many homes.
To some people's surprise, dairy and gluten is not tolerated well for some people and consumption of these foods lead to inflammation in the gut and on a system wide level in the body.
Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, barley and contaminated oats. Wheat is a common allergen. For those who cannot tolerate wheat or gluten products it can be quite irritating or inflammatory for those with conditions, ranging from celiac disease, wheat allergy to a gluten intolerance (Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity or NCGS).
According to the Digestive Diseases Statistics for the United States, 60-70% of people suffer from digestive conditions. In addition, lactose malabsorptions affects about 68% of the worlds population per NIH, with the majority being Africans and Asians.

To make the flax egg add 2 Tbsp ground flaxseed with 6 Tbsp water in a small bowl and mix until thick and set aside.
