Gluten Free Bread

IMG_9289

One of my challengers, Jen, shared this good gluten free bread recipe.  I excitedly got my ingredients gathered and started mixing it up.  It works up quickly and slices thin which is always good when you are being intentional about portions.  You can find the recipe here 

Serve with a little sliced apple and a healthy nut butter and just maybe a drizzle of honey or 100% fruit spread.

It’s this easy – no mixer needed.  I used 3 Tbsp organic butter and 3 Tbsp of coconut oil.  Next time I want to try replacing the eggs with ground flax seed (3 Tbsp of water and 1 Tbsp ground flax seed = 1 egg.  Mix well and let thicken for a few minutes)  This is a good alternative for those that need to limit their egg consumption.

Place it in a well greased loaf pan. I used a coconut oil spray.

Bake It.  Let cool for 10 minutes.  Run a butter knife around the edges and flip out.  I use another cooling rack.  Place on top of the loaf pan and flip.  Then I flip back onto another cooling rack.

Even had a chance to straighten out my baking center while the bread was baking.

For 21 Day Fixers – 1 serving = 1 blue container, .5 red container

Is this a recipe you would try?

Asian Breakfast Bowl

This is a great change of pace for breakfast.  It has protein, healthy carbohydrate, vegetables and spices.   

Asian Breakfast Bowl - plated

It goes together very quickly with precooked rice.  I use the frozen boxed brown rice from Trader Joe’s.  Of course you can always cook a pot of regular brown rice.  

You can also use the rice as is or cook in a little coconut oil for a fried rice version.
