From the focus of my blog, it’s clear that I gluten — obviously I’ve no allergy, and I’ve learned that fermenting it makes it better for your digestive system and the nutrients in wheat more accessible to your body. Moreover, whole/ancient/heirloom grains have a ton of fiber which is great for blood sugar management, lipid profile, satiety etc.

Nonetheless I was so excited to work on a GLUTEN FREE BREAD RECIPE that was just published by Breadtopia. My daughter has a friend with celiacs, and now she won’t have to bring a bag of special food next time she sleeps over.

Moreover, even though I can eat gluten 24/7, I’ve chosen to make this bread over and over, because I like it, especially with cultured butter, a little honey, and a banana on the side. This is now my #1 breakfast on a rock climbing day.

This bread is really easy to make. It’s a good intro to fermentation for newbies, and buckwheat and flax seeds are crazy healthy.

Get closer and breathe it in. Crumb of loaf in previous post. Turmeric, fennel seeds, and black pepper in the first loaf. Lots of black and white toasted sesame seeds in the second. Turmeric is absorbed better with black pepper "piperine" and fat, so bring on the butter. 
I have no idea if the antiinflammatory benefits persist when it's all baked at 500F after a long fermentation. 
But it looks pretty and smells good too.

I love holiday baking, so here's one of my weapons against the ailments. 
Black beans with garlic, and garlic chili sauce, alongside fermented purple cabbage, also with garlic, hot peppers and coriander seeds. 
Nothing better than a runny nose from spice. Plus the probiotics (fermented cabbage) and prebiotics (fructooligosaccarides in garlic, beans) may strengthen your immune system and help you fight off viruses. 
Some bread pics later today, turmeric in one of them...
#probiotics #prebiotics #sauerkraut #fermentedfoods #fermentedpurplecabbage #immunesystemsupport #foodismedicine Half whole grain kamut, half bread flour. Yum. I started this with yeast at 9:30 pm when I realized I had nothing to pack in Monday's school lunches. I tv-slept thru the 1.5 hr bulk, woke up to shape the loaf, and proofed it in the fridge all night. BUT apparently today the kids have a half-day of school. The robo-calls from the district, and the dinner table conversation somehow did not register in my brain. Or maybe I just wanted an excuse to bake. Oh, and this morning, I'd already made oatmeal for breakfast, cut the hot bread, and made one sandwich before my half-day revelation. 
Homemade stencil second pic. 
#kamutwheat Braiding hair is easier than braiding bread imo, and it's relaxing for me and my mom. Red fife wheat sourdough naan (half whole grain). I'm getting a little obsessed, and am reminded of my first pregnancy when I used to sit on a stool at the stove and fry and eat crepe after crepe after crepe. Subsequent pregnancies involved no sitting. ever. ☺️ #sourdoughnaan #redfifewheat #naan #sourdough
