I love making my own healthy bread. You know the peasant earthy artisan kind that’s full of great grains like ground flax, whole wheat, oats, and more. There’s something connective with the earth and my spirit when I make bread. Stick with me, no, I’m not getting whacked out. Any time you connect with food, you’re putting your energy into it whether your slicing, cutting, stirring, washing vegetables, cubing meat. Whatever. When you make bread, it’s like more of you goes into it. Your hands work the dough. Your eyes absorb the texture. You feel whether it’s just right or not. And, I’ll stop there with the love story of bread-making!
But, sometimes I’m just ‘not in the mood’ to make bread, and that’s when I find unbelievably wonderful breads in stores like Whole Foods, The Fresh Market, Earth Fare, etc. And, they’re pretty darn reasonably priced given that I know what goes into making one loaf of bread! I just knew this ‘Hemp Fourteener Oat Bread’ would make hearty and rustic French Toast…the texture is dense, it can absorb quite a bit of egg batter without tearing apart, and the nutty oateee taste is perfect with the fruit and maple syrup!
Finally, you must know how I adore treating my food like a Milan fashion week catwalk, even if it’s Saturday morning breakfast. The styling is part of my ‘Boho’ fun that comes with eatinou just gaze at this tower of beauty and know that there’s gonna be a warm smile in your tummy!
