Bread and healthy usually aren’t together. Doctor. Gundry says otherwise in his book, in which he provides a recipe to make healthy bread. According Dr. Gundry, you can enjoy as much as you’d like. We all enjoy bread, so needing to cut down on its consumption or completely avoid it is something that we absolutely aren’t happy about, in all honesty. However, we do have good news as an expert in cardiology has offered a recipe to assist you in making a homemade healthy bread you’ll just be able to enjoy!
The bread that was recommended by heart specialist Steven Gandry from Nebraska, which is featured in his work The Plant Paradox, can be eaten guilt-free since it doesn’t contain any cereals. As per Dr. Gandry, it is “almost bread”, and is free of gluten wheat, yeast, or gluten.
A slice of bread has only 90 calories 5 grams fiber, and three grams of protein when compared to 128 calories and three grams of fiber, and three grams of protein contained in slices of whole wheat bread.
The primary ingredients are coconut oil coconut flour, coconut flour, egg whites sweet potato flour hazelnut flour, almonds and many more.
In the words of Dr. Gundry the issue isn’t just about the carbs or the gluten however, it’s also about the excessive amount of lectins, also known as carbohydrate-binding proteins that are harmful in high concentrations, which makes traditional bread unhealthful.
Are lectins beneficial or bad for your health?
According to Independent,
“Steven Gundry suggests staying clear from lectins. Although many people opt to avoid gluten to avoid the bloating and inflammation Gundry believes that gluten is only one form of a lectin. It is an extremely toxic plant-based protein found in wheat , as well as numerous gluten-free products.
He says that when lectins that are found in many fruits as well as vegetables are consumed “they incite a kind of chemical warfare on our bodies” which could trigger an inflammation, leading to weight gain as well as other health problems.”
This nutritious recipe, which is also called Barely Bread, is completely non-lectin, so all of you’re covered for all bases.
