So sometime this week I am going to attempt to make my first loaf of home made whole wheat bread. I don’t have a bread machine, but I do have a kitchen aid mixer to help me out. The thought with this is...
A. It’s cheaper than store bought bread.
B. Its wayyyyy healthier than store bought bread.
C. Its tastier :)
The thought of all the preservatives that are in the loaf of bread that has been sitting on my counter for 2 weeks kind of creeps me out. About 5 years ago I discovered that I have an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) and my hormones
are all out of wack. From what I understand, this is something that has been far more common in later generations and I can only think that is has to do with the convenience food phenomenon that came about in the early 1900s. Our grocery stores are stocked
full of foods that are loaded with chemicals, preservatives and all kinds of things that we really shouldn’t be putting in our bodies. I’m not a scientist or food expert, but the more I think about it the more common sense kicks in. It just doesn’t seem right.
Yesterday I found a blog that talks a little about this that had a simple recipe for bread. Guess what... I can pronounce all of the ingredients!! My kind of bread. :) Now I know that it’s going to be a pain to do. It’s going to take
time but I think it will be worth it. I will let you all know how it goes.
