High-Fiber Old-Fashioned Dark Rye Blender Bread

A flourless blender bread - this one is my favorite! This has an authentic Eastern European flavor, amazingly easy and so delicious! It tastes like Old World dark rye with a hint of sweetness. This is a true comfort-food, delicious with butter or with my Dairy-Free Coconut Cream Cheese. No need for yeast or waiting. Just mix and bake. This bread has major health benefits including:
  1. It's High-fiber and Flourless, so it cleans your digestive tract, promoting healthy elimination, while preventing mucoid plaque and belly flab associated with flours. YAY!
  2. It is high in protein, Omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, and low carb nutrition from sprouted rye, chia seeds, and eggs.
  3. Easy to make! Just blend, pour in pan, and bake. There's no kneading or waiting for yeast to rise. DOUBLE YAY!
  4. It's easier to digest because the grain is  pre-soaked. So it's free of saponins and indigestible coatings found in all seeds, grains, flours and commercial breads.
  5. The biggest advantage is, the FLAVOR of soaked or sprouted grains is out of this world! Commercial breads made with conventional flours just can't compare in taste.

Fiddleheads! What to do?

Today I had just 10 minutes for lunch. These coiled-up fern shoots showed up at my local organic market. They come up in the forest in the spring. Their taste is sweet - something like wild asparagus and green beans. Since I love asparagus omelets, I thought I'd experiment with fiddleheads, throwing in a few shiitakes and garlic. Yummilicio...

Vegetable Oils: The Good, Bad and the Deadly

After years of listening to my body, I finally discovered I must avoid refined vegetable oils.

When I eat food with these cheap GMO vegetable oils, my body feels "funny", like ...

Today's breakfast was a refreshing flavor treat of creamy, luscious papaya. I added tangerine, coconut milk, and strawberries for a WOW! Intensely luscious smoothie!

Say Good-Bye to a Middle-Age Belly in 10 Steps

To live a long and healthy life, one of the most important steps is to keep your intestines clean. Certain foods clog up our body and lead to weight gain.

Why is CHOCOLATE the FOOD of the GODS? But there’s a catch!

Pure 100% chocolate is my favorite food in the world. And for good reason. Pure unsweetened cacao is higher in antioxidants than grapes, blueberries, or green tea.

AVOID! Toxic “Natural Flavors”

By Jane Barthelemy.  When I see “Natural flavors” on a food label, I feel immediately anxious, unprotected, and suspicious. I conjure up bizarre images of chemical experiments in a food laboratory. What is the truth about “Natural Flavors”? What does the term mean? How can I protect myself...
