Flourless bread recipe- a skin healthy option

bread

I like my carbs. I have a history of eating pasta with tomato sauce as an after- school ritual (before my dinner), all the way through junior high. I've been getting away with my greater than average consumption of the stuff for most of my life, but now, as I've tipped 26, I'm starting to see and feel differences depending on what I eat. I've touched upon diet in relation to my skin before, many times before (sugar, antioxidants, spices,tea, coffee), and here comes yet another!

This bread recipe is great if you're dieting, on a low GI plan, if you're gluten-intolerant, if you're malnourished and need proteins and good fats, if you work out, if you're sugar-conscious, etc etc etc. It's my mother's, I think she got it out of one of her magazines, a danish one to be precise, apparently they do the best breads.

Ingredients:

150g almonds

150g pumpkin seeds

100g sesame-seeds

100g flax-seeds

100g sunflower-seeds

1dl oil (vegetable, I used flax seed and ground-nut)

2ts salt

5 eggs

..........................................................................

Method:

Set the oven on 160 Celsius, chop the almonds roughly, mix all the ingredients together in a bowl (I added tumeric, pepper and cayenne for an extra health/skin boost)

Pour the "dough" into an oiled bread shape, and cook for 1 hour and 10 min.

I think this is the easiest thing I have ever baked, I don't even know if I can call it baking, it was so easy, 'baking' sounds like a lie. I went for all organic ingredients, I try to eat as clean as I can, when the opportunity is there, but that's just me.

Tada! The end result, looks like bread, tastes better, and contains only yummy almonds, and seeds full of antioxidants, vitamins, proteins, and skin smoothing, heart helping oils. Low GI, sugar free, low carb, gluten and dairy free.

Good luck!
