THE FREE FROM EVERYTHING DIET! ...and everything free bread



Presently I am struggling to find foods that don't make my tummy mad mad mad at me. I am now calling my diet the FREE FROM EVERYTHING diet. I have found myself quite discouraged lately about the endless list of foods I can't eat. What I have discovered on this free from everything diet however is that there are actually a lot of foods that I can eat and a lot of possibilities that I have yet to try. I realized that the free from everything diet takes on a whole new meaning when you look at it from this perspective. I am free from tummy pain, I am free from feeling sick and I am free to do the things that I love to do most when I eat in a way that makes my body happy. Instead of listening to the ways in which society wants me to eat I have to listen to the ways in which my body wants me to eat and if that means no sugar, no yeast, no gluten, no dairy.....and so on....then so be it. I would rather be FREE TO BE MY BESTEST ME EVER than be sick.

  3. Let me know how it goes for you! You can also replace the almond milk with yogurt.

  4. Rats. Free from everything except eggs. It looks wonderful though. Stupid eggs, why do they hate me so? Ah well, the search continues. :-)

  5. You could definately try it using flax eggs (one tbsp flax meal + 3 tbsp water for every egg you are replacing).

  6. Thanks. That's what I always do and I always get too heavy a bread. Replacing more than 2 eggs at a time never seems to be perfect and all the best bread recipes seem to have more than 2 eggs. I guess that means I'm gonna hafta work on it, but I am sooo lazy. Maybe if I whip rather than mix the flax? Dunno. I'll get back if i figure it out.

  7. Definitely let me know if you figure it out. Have you tried making a chia seed "egg" with the same water ratio?

    1. Yep. I've tried chia, in fact I like it much better than flax and I've tried adding extra baking powder as well. The baking powder does help but the bread is generally still heavier than it should be. I'd bet it'd be easier to figure out if I made a loaf more often than twice a year. See, you knew it was my own darn fault the whole time didn't you? hah
