MAY RECIPES: CANDIDA DIET, GARLIC BREAD
My, Kajsa’s, time to “shine” and share some recipes. Nicole has only been sharing recipes since we started NIKA so time for me to step up and perfect now when we are sharing recipes every Wednesday in May! I am sharing my FAVORITE bread recipe and have been baking this every Sunday for the last couple of weeks!
Before I start with the recipe do I want to share some thoughts about food in general and my “new” relationship to food. I have always had a very healthy relationship with food and have never counted calories, cared about what I have been eating, and never cared about my weight. But even if a body looks healthy from the outside doesn’t it always feel healthy on the inside. I have had problems with my acne since I was 16 years old and also other health-related problems back and forward that I didn’t know what they were coming from. A friend to me started to talk about Candida and the Candida diet which I believe has answered a lot of my health-related problems. I now try to eliminate gluten, dairy, and sugar in all kinds and are still trying to figure out if this is my problem. Not to lose weight, but for helping my body on the inside. If you want to read more about Candida do it here. Is there anyone else who is following the Candida diet or have tips and tricks? Please comment and help each other out! 🙂 Let’s get in to the recipe!
Ingredients: 2 dl almond meal 0.5 dl almond flour 0.5 dl ground flax seed meal 0.5 dl chia seeds 1 tsp sea salt 1/2 tsp baking soda 1 tsp fresh rosemary (I use to cut it into small pieces) 6-8 garlic cloves 4 eggs 1 dl olive oil 1 tbs apple cider vinegar (raw) Step 1. Preheat oven to 175 C and grease a glass loaf pan. I use to use just parchment paper. Step 2. In a bowl, stir together almond meal, almond flour, ground flax seed meal, chia seeds, salt, baking soda, rosemary and garlic. Step 3. In a seperate bown whisk together the eggs, olive oil and apple cider vinegar. Step 4. Pour your batter into the loaf pan and place on the middle rack in your oven. Step 5. Bake for about 45 – 55 minutes. Until it is firm to the touch and golden brown on top. Let it cool down and serve! Eat it with avocado, diary free cheese, coconut butter, tomatoes, turkey or whatever you like! Enjoy! 🙂
