Sheesh, I have not posted a bread recipe in a long time! The funny thing is I didn't even notice because we usually don't consume a lot of bread in our house. We've simply adapted to not having it around. This may sound impossible for some of you starting out your gluten free journey but your body CAN and DOES ADAPT and soon you WILL stop craving the gluten-infested items as much. I'm proud to say I can drive by a Krispy Kreme donut shop now and no longer lick the car window... ;)
I think the whole cravings issue is what stops some people from being completely gluten free. They'd rather continue to eat the food that makes them sick rather than eat properly! Which is so crazy to me but it does happen! (I know because I was that way...ha ha.) It's funny but maybe we've all done it! I bet you can think of something right now that you KNOW is not good for you but you eat it anyways. ;) Busted.
My sister has a friend with Crone's Disease (which is very closely related to a gluten/wheat allergy) and when she is off gluten/wheat entirely, she feels SO much better! But, frankly, it's "too hard" for her. She rather not deal with a diet change. So what she is dealing with instead are sores on her gut. Medication can help calm the symptoms, but it can't take away the body's real issue of being allergic to wheat.
Well, now that you've gotten your "Don't be lazy and eat what's bad for you" pep talk for today let's get to our next recipe! This one was submitted by my mom. She said it's a great garlic bread with a whole wheat type of texture. I'm going to work on making it dairy free and with less starches so Audrey can enjoy it too. Stay tuned for updates! :)
