    I’ve bought the book on kindle while on holiday and planning to start when I get home. My question is about flours.
    I know that all flour, because it is milled, i.e. broken down/ partially digested, is higher GI than the grains that it’s made from, but are all flours equally bad? I am thinking of lentil flour (used in south Indian dosas) and chickpea flour.
    I see that coconut flour is suggested in some of the baking recipes. Is there a reason for this?
    I am very fond of pancakes, such as korean kimchee pancakes, and would like to try adapting sime recipes to reduce the GI. Is there a list comparing different types of flour anywhere?
