Better Health: Step One!👍

It started. This week I met three people who wanted to change what they eat. And why not? It’s a good idea! Plus, January is a good time.
If you are also one of those people, here’s a little peek into something that’s easy to change, but is so beneficial. Chia seeds! They are loaded with fiber, omega-3s, protein, lots of vitamins and minerals and also high in antioxidants. Plus they are easy to eat and use.
Top 10 Chia Seeds Benefits
  1. Support Healthy Skin
  2. Promote Digestive Health
  3. Improve Heart Health
  4. Balance Blood Sugar
  5. Boost Energy and Exercise Performance
  6. Build Stronger Bones
  7. Aid in Weight Loss
  8. Fight Cancer Growth
  9. Enhance Oral Health
  10. Pregnancy Health

Danwich Bread (Paleo Sandwich Bread)

30 minutes prep + 70 min baking/cooling | makes 1 8.5×4.5 loaf
We were so excited about a homemade bread option. When we made it the first time, we named it Danwich bread (because it’s Danielle Walker’s sandwich bread). The name stuck! It is a bit of work, but it also has amazing consistency. Sample this bread at our Allergy Free Day on Sat. Feb 2nd.
  • 1 cup smooth raw cashew butter at room temperature*
  • 4 large eggs, separated*
  • ½ tablespoons honey (use 2 T. for French toast bread)*
  • 2.5 teaspoons apple cider vinegar*
  • ¼ cup almond milk
  • ¼ cup coconut flour*
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda*
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt*
*Ingredient available at The Country Cupboard
  1. Preheat your oven to 300 degrees. Place a small dish of water on the bottom rack.
  2. Line the bottom of an 8.5×4.5 glass loaf pan with parchment paper, then spread a very thin coating of coconut oil on the sides of the pan.
  3. With either an electric hand beater or a stand mixer, beat the cashew butter with the egg yolks, then add the honey, vinegar, and milk.
  4. With an electric hand mixer, beat the egg whites in a separate bowl until peaks form.
  5. Combine the dry ingredients in another small bowl.
  6. Make sure your oven is completely preheated before adding the egg whites and the dry ingredients to the cashew butter mixture. You don’t want your whites to fall, and the baking soda will activate once it hits the eggs and vinegar.
  7. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, and beat until combined. This will result in more of a wet batter than a dough. Make sure to get all of the sticky butter mixture off of the bottom of the bowl so you don’t end up with clumps.
  8. Pour the beaten egg whites into the cashew butter mixture, beating again until just combined. You don’t have to be gentle with this, but don’t over mix.
  9. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan, then immediately put it into the oven.
  10. Bake for 45-50 minutes, until the top is golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean. Don’t be tempted to open the oven door anytime before 40 minutes, as this will allow the steam to escape and you will not get a properly risen loaf.
  11. Remove from the oven, then let cool for 15-20 minutes. Use a knife to free the sides from the loaf pan, then flip it upside down and release the loaf onto a cooling rack. Cool right-side up for an hour before serving.
  12. Wrap the loaf up tightly and store in the fridge for 1 week.
