Bad news: those Monsanto dudes are at it again. Good news: wheat free bread recipe

If you’re having a gut reaction to the tittle….you may be eating too much yeast and wheat.

Your immunity and logically, your health, depends on a healthy gut. Your intestines are where most of your vitamins and minerals are absorbed.  And it’s also the place where your immunity is born. Eating a diet high in animal protein and fat and eating a lot of “white” foods (pasta, bread, potatoes, milk..etc) can render you “guttural”, bloated and prone to illness.

US food does not require GMO labeling where most all other countries do. Raise your hand if you think that this has to do with Monsanto’s ties with US government.  (hmmm that’s pretty much everyone except for that guy asleep in the back) There’s a good chance that you and your family are consuming GMO wheat even though it’s illegal to product products containing it because the US products do not have to be labeled “contains GMO”.  Just this month (June 2013), Japan and South Korea rejected imports of US wheat because it tested positive for GMO.  If it is showing up in US exported wheat, there’s a pretty good chance that you’re eating it.

But you don’t have to!!!

(see how sneaky labeling can be and how Kraft macaroni and cheese sold in the UK is labeled “contains GMO” but it’s made in the US) Check out food babe.com for more on this issue. (Pssst…if you’re still feeding Kraft mac and cheese to your kids, it’s time to take a good look at your food choices anyway)

Then there’s yeast.  Yeast also throws off your intestinal balance and can tip the “intestinal” scales especially in women making them more prone to candida (yeast) infections and irritable bowel syndromes.

But you don’t have to give up bread to be healthy.  Just make sure you know what’s in it and that it’s wheat free and yeast-free. And try to buy organic ingredients when you can.

Here is my video showing you how simple it is to make a delicious flat bread.  You can top this like a pizza with roasted veggies, or add your favorite seeds (flax, chia or sesame) or top with fresh herbs like I did.

This is a great one to make with your kids…to show them how important it is to know what’s in your food.

  • 1 cup garbonzo bean flour
  • 1 cup amaranth flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons aluminum free baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons organic olive oil
  • 3/4 cup room temp water
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • fresh herbs/seed to top

Combine dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.  Add oil and then gradually add water while stirring.  Dough will be sticky.  Turn out onto a surface dusted with flour and knead for several minutes until dough is uniform. Form a ball and let rest for 15 minutes.  Flatten out onto a baking pan lined with parchment paper and roll to about 1/4-1/2 thick. Brush or lightly spray with mister filled with oil and press toppings onto dough.  Bake in 350 oven for about 20-30 minutes until the edges are browned.

Use as a pizza crust or tear and dip into your favorite hummus or dip.  Make sandwiches. Enjoy!

  1. I have arthritis (getting worse) advised to have no wheat or even be gluten free! Never can have yeast after strong bout of steroids, on low dose (asthma permanently) and keep having mouth thrush so need to be careful. Thank you for the bread as it is a main issue for many I think. I love my homemade veggie burgers, chiles, huge salads and soups best and some bread makes me feel complete.

    • Sorry for what you’ve been through! There is also a brand of bread that I get at my health food store called Sammi’s Bakery. http://samisbakery.com They make great sandwich breads without yeast or wheat. I haven’t eaten wheat or yeast in years and I don’t miss it!! Thankfully there are more and more companies out there making good food like this. I’m sure you know about the candida diet, right?

  2. That’s some tasty wheat free bread recipe! Thanks for taking the time to make a helpful video!
