THE GAME CHANGER; NUT, SEED AND OAT BREAD I FINN´S FOODS

THE GAME CHANGER; NUT, SEED AND OAT BREAD

One of the first rules of eating healthy, whole foods is to cut out refined and processed foods from our everyday lives as much as possible. This also means that my much beloved bread has to disappear of the breakfast, lunch and dinner table. As many northern-Europeans, I grew up eating bread at most meals and it definitely takes a little rethinking to change that routine. 

As I was in the midst of getting my body used to not craving gluten at every meal, I discovered a post from Sarah Britton on her fabulous blog http://www.mynewroots.org/ that claimed the “Life Changing Loaf of Bread”. And I immediately ran to the store to acquire all the necessary ingredients.

While for me I would not go as far as to say it has changed my life, this loaf definitely is a game changer. I love it´s nutty richness, it´s fibrous denseness and the beautiful smell as it is baking in the oven. I love eating this with a salad or with a little home-made jam or pesto as a mid afternoon snack. Yum!
