People are often surprised when I tell them about my delicious breakfast sandwich of 1 egg and 1 slice of bacon on 2 pieces of bread.
What most people are picturing is something you’d get from a fast food drive thru window (which is just not an option for me), but the reality is that I put this simple and healthy breakfast together right inside my own kitchen.
Two slices of bread??? Yep, that’s what I said.
On a flat belly eating plan like Beyond Diet, there’s no reason to give up bread.
And you have options…
Ezekiel bread and Manna bread are both sprouted grains, which are much healthier and easier for your body to digest (and that means no belly bloat), but what if you’re sensitive to gluten like me?
Well just because my body doesn’t agree with gluten, and I know I’m not alone here, why should I have to give up yummy sandwiches, toast, and other baked goods that everyone else gets to enjoy?
I don’t! And neither do you…
Instead of buying bread at the super market, that I know is going to make me feel terrible, I choose to make my own breads at home.
Now, before you leave this page at the very thought of baking bread, hear me out…
It’s actually quite simple, even for the most beginner of chefs. All you need are easy-to-follow recipes and it’s just like cooking anything else.
The best part for me is knowing that my bread of choice can easily be put together in my own kitchen, using all-natural ingredients that I know my body will love and my waistline won’t suffer.
I don’t have to go through the mile-long bread aisle at the super market, wading through all the different brands, ingredient lists, and marketing ploys posted all over the labeling. With 2 kids, a full-time job, and everything else that goes on in life, I just don’t have time for that.
And you might not either, which is why I’m giving you one of my favorite bread recipes today.
This was given to me by my good friend and the author of Better Breads, Kelley Herring.
Paleo Pullman Bread
Makes One 7.5 X 3.5 loaf (12 slices)
• ¾ cup almond flour (80 g)
• 1½ tablespoons coconut flour (20 g)
• 1 teaspoon baking soda
• ¼ teaspoon sea salt
• 3 teaspoon organic psyllium husk powder (9 g) – great for your intestinal health!
• ¼ cup hot water
• 3 pastured eggs + 1 egg white
• 1 tablespoon organic apple cider vinegar
• Preheat oven to 350ºF.
• Grease or line the bottom of a Magic Line Loaf pan (7.5” X 3.5”) with parchment. Using the correct pan size is very important for achieving proper height.
• In a small bowl, combine the dry ingredients.
• Combine the eggs and apple cider vinegar, whisking well. Stir in the dry ingredients to combine. Pour in hot water and stir vigorously to distribute. Batter will be thick and sticky, like oatmeal.
• Spread into prepared pan. Transfer to oven and bake 35 minutes or a toothpick comes out clean.
• Let cool on a wire rack. When completely cool, store in an airtight container.
Mmmm…I can almost smell it as I’m writing you!
The best thing about this, and the other recipes in Kelly’s book, Better Breads, is that instead of bread being bad for you, the ingredients she uses actually work to improve your digestion and intestinal health.
So while psyllium husk powder may sound odd to you if you haven’t used it before, it’s exactly what you need to support your flat belly and full-body fat loss WHILE eating bread!
But maybe bread isn’t your thing…ok…
How about a delicious donut instead? Yes, I said donut!!
If that’s what will get you and your family moving in the morning, then try this recipe from Kelley’s Better Breakfasts book – which she’s giving away completely FREE when you get Better Breads.
