It’s not always easy finding healthy, tasty foods that the whole family can enjoy. What can be even more challenging is finding the time to prepare and make these foods. I am a big fan of recipes that make preparation quick, simple and effective. I can be easily put off a recipe if there are lots of ingredients required and / or there are a number of steps that need to be followed.
So for those of you out there who may have some of the same challenges I have, I’d love to share my favourite cave-man bread recipe – it’s totally gluten-and grain-free – in fact it just looks and tastes like bread, but really is a beautiful, nutrient dense, high protein loaf. It’s great for the kids’ lunches as a slice, perfect for breakfast with a poached egg on top, or even sliced and toasted with some mashed avocado or a little butter. It’s not about avoiding the things we enjoy but just finding ideas and options that might make them a little healthier and beneficial for you – I hope you enjoy!
‘Caveman’ breakfast bread
Prep time: 10—15 minutes
Baking time: 45 minutes
This is a great, simple recipe for those who wish to be gluten-free but also need an option for bread or toast. It has a high level of protein which is important to keep you full and manage sugar cravings. Is very filling and tasty and can be frozen if desired.
