Super healthy ingredients

Lots of wonderful nutritious stuff going on in a delicious savoury bread.  Full of all the antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, polyphenol power of linseed, turmeric & cauliflower and no gluten of starch in sight!

All ingredients are super low GI and starch free so suitable for weight loss and diabetic diets. Linseed also gives you a helping of omega-3 for good measure.

Turmeric has a great reputation for being anti-inflammatory, it needs both black pepper and oil to get the best from it.

You can make sandwiches with it or just have it in the fridge for something tasty and  healthy to take the edge off your appetite when come home ravenous. It’s savoury and nice on its own, add it to your lunch-box, it’s a great way to increase your vegetable and dietary fibre intake and filling in a non-fattening way.

Easy to adapt

The quantities I have given are quite loose because when you make something with a natural thing like a cauliflower they don’t come in standard weights, this recipe is very forgiving and you can easily just adapt it to what you have available. If you are short of cauliflower just add grated carrot or kale  to make up the weight.

Extra Healthy Seasoning & flavour

For a little extra seasoning I use “Sunshine Salt” from Dr Sarah Myhill. I prefer it to Pink, Himalayan salt for nutrition as it has higher levels of nutrients we know our diets need more of and has the addition of tow important vitamins, D3 and B12 and it’s tasty. For extra flavour add herbs to taste, preferably fresh. Or try with other spice, curry powders, whole seed or whatever takes your fancy.

      The linseed bread is great and a good addition to a healthy balanced diet. It is far more satisfying that ordinary bread so you probably won’t eat too much. A few slices a day gives you good helping of veggies, fibre and omega-3. You probably don’t want to eat much more than that, lovely as it is you do need more than just cauliflower and linseed. 🙂
