GRAMMY’S ‘KILLER’ BREAD

This recipe is so good; I absolutely love bread with ‘texture.’

In Bosch bowl, combine:

5 ½ C warm water                 2/3 C each olive oil (or coconut oil) & honey (or agave)

2+T SAF yeast                         3 C rolled cereal mix

2 eggs                                         4 C seed & nut mix*

6 – 7 C freshly milled Bread Grains (6 C P Gold & 3 C each Spelt & Kamut)

 

Let rest about 20 minutes to sponge. When frothy, add …

¼ C gluten flour                                2 ‘glops’ Sunflower Lecithin (about 2 T)

1+ T Himalayan salt                        enough flour to ‘clean the sides of the bowl’

 

Let mix on speed 2 for 5 – 7 minutes until gluten is smooth & elastic.

 

Divide dough as desired into loaves, rolls, pizza crusts, entrees, or bread braids.

 

To bake into loaves, preheat oven at 200 for 5 minutes. Turn off heat.

Shape dough & place in loaf pan. Let rise in warm oven 20 minutes. Bake at 350* for 25 minutes or until a thermometer inserted in the middle reads 180*.

 

*Seed & Nut mixture: in the Bosch food processor,

· Pour about 1 C each sunflower & pumpkin seeds, walnuts, slivered almonds (all previously soaked & dehydrated)

· Add ¼ C sesame seeds, ½ C flax meal (seeds processed in coffee mill)

Process until desired texture is achieved. Add to the bread mixture prior to sponging. Let the mixture soften in the water and moisten the seeds & nuts.

Jeanna found this website:

www.runningwithspoons.com/2014/08/18/creamy-maple-roasted-almond-butter/

Wow, absolutely delicious & oh, so easy!

1. Spread 2 C raw almonds on a Sil Pro mat. Pour about 1/4 C of real maple syrup over the almonds. Stir to coat the nuts.

2. Bake at 325 for 15 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes. While still warm, run in a food processor  with :

3. 1 - 2 T coconut oil for a smoother texture.

        Pinch of salt                     1 t cinnamon

4.     Process about 10 minutes until smooth, scraping the sides as needed. Store in airtight container in frig for 3 months, if it lasts that long. It is addicting! 

 

 
 
 

 

Heart Healthy Meals Defined

 

Recently the VA informed my hubby he has high blood pressure. Time for a monitor & meds. I wasn’t convinced, but at least John became more aware of his diet and started monitoring his BP. The pharmacy gave him their recommendations for  the Heart Healthy Diet! My heart sank as I read the protocol. It failed my dad back in 1992. Amazingly, they still publish it today!

 

From my studies over the last 20 years, this is MPBO = Margaret’s Personal Biased Opinion.

· “Low to no fat.”  Low fat usually translates to high sugar, which usually is high fructose corn syrup.  High sugar is obviously not heart healthy! Instead of no fat, use a conservative amount of HEART HEATLHY FAT, medium chain fats! Our bodies need fat! Exchange vegetable oil, canola oil, corn oil and margarine for coconut oil, butter & olive oil. I know our Aunt Patty’s coconut oils & olive oil are EXCELLENT quality. Our olive oil turns solid in cold, meaning it has not been ‘diluted’ with lesser grade oils, but it doesn’t have that pungent odor. Here is a great article about common cooking oils: https://thetruthaboutcancer.com/common-cooking-oil-cancer-nightmare/?mpweb=144-675584-501355571

· “Use vegetable oil & soft margarine”  Again, olive oil, coconut oils, and butter are superior oils that don’t damage the body like vegetable oil & margarine do. These are man made products, not natural products.

· “Use little or no salt”  I agree. Eliminate Morton bleached processed white salt. However, our bodies need salt, the micro nutrients are vital to our health! Choose a salt with color! The color denotes unprocessed salt with nutrients. Our Pink Himalayan Salt is perfect and very inexpensive! Read our book on salt & you will agree! God commands us to be salt & light. Jesus is the True Bread.  Would God use these analogies if they were unhealthy?

· “Remove fat from homemade broths, soups & stews” I agree if you purchase your chicken & beef from the grocery store. If you are blessed to raise your own chickens and have access to more natural beef, then these broths are vital to your well being. Don’t skim off all the fat. At least consume some. Vital nutrients are in those home made broths! *If you do consume store bought meats, yes skimming off the fat is a good idea. Toxins hide well in fat. Avoiding toxins, good idea!

 

· “Reduce sugar intake” I agree, especially if you use artificial sweeteners, refined sugar & corn syrup! Even reducing ‘healthy’ sugars” is not a bad idea. But if you do want some sweetness, use a better choice like evaporated cane juice sugar, molasses, honey (a good grade), coconut sugar, etc.

So please do some self study & find out what truly is HEART HEALTHY! It might surprise you!
