I have the book Wheat Belly by Dr. Davis. I am getting through it slowly, but I did see him on a TV show and he makes alot of sense. His recipes look great too. I figure going wheat free can be done, but it will take some practice and some research to make acceptable bread substitutions. I don't think I can do it 100% but I'd like to try and at least decrease my consumption and dependence on wheat products.
So my first challenge was that I wanted a sandwich yesterday. Hard to do on a wheat free diet. I remembered a post from Dawn awhile back about the sandwich thins she made using a recipe from Elana's pantry. So I pulled up the link below and set off to make a "thin' for my lunch.
|The main ingredients...eggs, almond flour, Swerve and a few other things.|
|This handy 1/4 cp spoon measures out even amounts.|
|Spread out the batter into a round shape. I sprinkled on some chia seeds for a poppy seed effect! Also, if you don't have a silpat or acceptable version of one, I highly recommend purchasing one for all of your baking needs. It makes an amazing difference! Easy clean up too!|
|Carefull cut horizontally to make a top and a bottom. A serrated bread knife works great. See the spaghetti squash in the background? I nuked that for some "pasta". Great with a little butter and garlic....but I digress!!|
|Enjoy with your favorite sandwich filling! Here I cut up some leftover meatballs from dinner and added some shredded cheese. |
I'd say it was a success!
Now I digress again. I love that word!!
