I purchased 3 different canister sets from various sellers on Etsy. I also purchased these cool chalkboard stickers to label them with.
A girl that loves to bake has to have a lot of different flours and sugars, ya know?
I was quite pleased with myself!
In cleaning out this cabinet, I came across this recipe box:
I have 3 recipe boxes full of cards typed out by my mother over the years. She had everything nicely organized.
This box contained the diet recipes. There was only a small part of the vast collection of diet recipes my mother had. She was always trying something new.
Well, always isn't really accurate. We (the whole family) were either ON a diet or we were OFF. There was no real balance in our lives.
I live my life differently than they did. Not that the way they lived their life was bad; they just did not, well, know any better. Their family doctor said eat less, exercise more. That was as far as the advice went.
I live my life outside a box...I don't have recipes that are for when I am ON or OFF. I find a way to incorporate all of it into my life.
I went to the grocery store yesterday. Among the other items needed were bread. I love Great Harvest bread, but sadly, it just isn't convenient. I examined the various loaves on the shelves, all wrapped and declaring what they had to offer - whole grains, double the fiber. As I read the ingredients lists, sadly there was a lot more in most of the loaves than what I wanted. I declared I would make my own.
I have made my own bread before, but knew I wanted something heartier than just wheat bread. I found this recipe for Seeded Bread, and, oh how good it is!
In addition to the seeds she uses in her recipe, I added sunflower kernels and pepitas.
Here are the nutritional stats:
Yes, the calorie count make it higher in calorie than what you find on the grocery store shelves. I know every ingredient that went into it and I control the size of the slice.
If you look carefully, you can see the steam rising off the hot slice!
This is not Great Harvest, but it is a damn good bread!
