OH how I love bread! Not just the band, but actual warm, soft, sometimes crusty on the outside BREAD! But for so many of us bread is off the menu, whether it’s due to Celiac disease, candida overgrowth, or yeast and wheat allergies. I hear the frustration from so many of you who are just starting out on this healthy eating journey. You want to throw in the towel because “what is life without bread anyway”? Yes, I get it! Those thoughts certainly ran through my head in the beginning as well, so today’s post is dedicated to all of you bread lovers. I picked four of Eat, Pray, Get Well’s most popular bread recipes and I challenge you try them for one week.
Think you can’t refrain from eating bread while eating out? I now shamelessly pull my flatbread out of a zip lock bag every time I’m in a restaurant. Why you ask? The final straw was a family dinner years ago at Carrabbas. I was one week into my breadless diet as I somewhat angrily watched everyone dip their warm crusty bread in oil and spices pretending for my sake it wasn’t all that great. Now I don’t feel left out. I don’t feel deprived (which I’m sure makes me a nicer person to be around). So all is right with the world. So go make some bread (or pancakes, muffins, or pop overs) and let me know if you don’t feel just a little more excited about your decision to kick the breads that you know you are just hindering your healing process anyway! Enjoy!
