Is Bread making you FAT?

BreadFat

Bread, bread, bread, bread, bread…. It’s everywhere! Every main shopping district, transport hub and educational facility is saturated with sandwich shops and pastry houses. It is no wonder we have turned into a carbohydrate crazed nation where many a breakfast consists of a coffee with toast and jam, followed by a sandwich for lunch and [...]

It is not always easy to determine which foods can be eaten on the paleo diet. For the die hard followers of the diet, the rule is to eat only foods that our ancestors had at their disposal, however, we now have a larger advantage than our ancestors in that we have the ability to consume a greater variety of nutritious fruits and vegetables and use them to create a nutritionally rich diet. It is important to note, however, that starchy tubers, usually not recommended for inclusion in the paleo diet, are toxic if not cooked, have a high glycemic index, are low in phytosterols, while also containing enzyme blockers [...]

About the Recipes

All the recipes you see on my site are made up by me, unless otherwise stated. I love to experiment in the kitchen and as you can see my photo's are not all fancy, they are usually taken with my phone just as I am about to dish up. These are real tried and true recipes that work, if they didn't I wouldn't post it. I hope you enjoy my cooking as much as I do.
