Sourdough A to Z eBook: Win a Copy!

Sourdough is a champion traditional food  (don't miss Stacey's post on sourdough next Friday). By slowly fermenting the grain during the souring process, it becomes easily digestible (sometimes even for those with allergies or particular grain sensitivities), it reduces phytates (for better mineral availability and absorption), it even lower the insulin response to consuming the carbohydrates.
Even better, sourdough baked goods are simpler than you might think to make and very frugal. There is no added yeast necessary (a beneficial thing, because store bought yeast contributes to systemic yeast issues in the body), and the overall result with sourdough is just good, wholesome, tasty and nutritious. It is quickly becoming my preferred way to prepare grains and make baked goods.
Last fall, I reviewed the Sourdough eCourse from GNOWFGLINS , experimenting and learning all of the varied ways that sourdough can be used.  Far beyond basic bread, sourdough methods can be applied to breakfast foods (crepes, pancakes, muffins), crackers, pizza dough, biscuits, and even sweet treats like cinnamon rolls, cake, cookies and pie!
I absolutely loved the eCourse contents and especially the videos, but I know that the cost of such a course isn't a possibility for everyone. When Wardeh let me know that she had compiled an eBook with the same basic contents of the eCourse , I was thrilled.
No, you don't get access to the videos and some of the amazing tutorials or the member forums that come with the Sourdough eCourse,  BUT you still get all of the printed teaching material, and all of the amazing recipes, with very detailed instructions. Another great addition to the eBook is tips and fresh ideas and adaptations that have been contributed by those who took the eCourse  and participated in the forums.
The Sourdough A to Z eBook  sells for $20, which I think is a complete steal (unless you're a GNOWFGLINS eCourse member , and then it's even cheaper). The amount of information packed into this 150 page book is 100% worthwhile, and I have no hesitation in recommending it to you wholeheartedly.
This is honestly the best and most comprehensive resource on sourdough that I know of. With 5 different authors collaborating their knowledge and experience to write it, and 25 detailed lessons, it will answer all of your sourdough questions and have you preparing incredible foods for your family in no time. Though I rarely print out eBooks, this is one that I would consider printing out to have in a binder as an easily accessible resource and recipe book.
I know, it sounds like I'm being a bit over the top. I try not to gush about products, but it's hard not to when it is one that I personally feel is an incredible resource and great value.
Although I've been making sourdough breads on and off for years, I've been recently looking into the science of sourdough in a more in-depth way recently. Since our family has been struggling with remaining grain-free for a variety of reasons (although I still absolutely feel that GAPS is an excellent diet for healing the gut, reversing allergies and helping other disorders and disease as well ), I'm looking for other ways to help improve my family's digestive systems and food sensitivities. Sourdough is promising in this regard, because it helps to pre-digest the grains (making them far easier on the gut than other methods of preparation), greatly reduces disaccharide content in the finished product (while most baked goods are very high in disaccharides), and can make gluten and grain proteins tolerable for many who usually cannot tolerate them .
Wardeh has graciously offered 5 copies of the Sourdough A to Z eBook  to give away to my readers. Would you like to win one?
