Life Changing Bread


The simple pleasure of eating a sandwich is something that I often miss. Bread is comfort food to me because I grew up on fresh baked bread my mother made it large amounts for our family of nine. Still to this day she is a great bread baker. Bread can also be evil for some that are intolerant to wheat and gluten.

There are many gluten free breads on the market, yet none that I have fell in love with yet. Coconut flour and I are not friends yet I seem to tolerate oats so very thankful for that. My diet has no label. I eat healthy, it is really that simple and with that being said I enjoy food and I want my food to taste good. Don’t we all though?

Life Changing Bread

This bread is packed full of fiber so if you are trying to increase fiber in your diet, here is the perfect vehicle to get you “moving”. This bread is so simple to make, requires no yeast, no rising, no flour and the best part is there is very little mess. What it does include is healthy nuts and seeds, healthy fats a very small amount of natural sweetener and psyllium as a binder. If you are looking to reduce your cholesterol levels and increase your bowel movements, this bread is for you. When I made this bread the girl who lives with said I should call it “movement” bread. This bread will be your best friend if you need a little extra help.
