Flax Seed Sheet Bread
|Flax Seed Sheet Bread|
A while ago, sometime on 2010, I followed a recommended diet call the Blue Prints. Thou today many more people knows about it, some out there still don't. I don't currently follow this eating style, but I should!!!, because from all the ones I manage to followed to try an loose weight, this by far was the smarter one of it all. This been mention I have to say that while I did loose weight, I manage to feel better and also left a bunch of pills I was taking, from hormones to the ones that lower my cholesterol, also my feet use to hurt in the mornings and that went away as well.I will say that the plan was great, but it was my bad habits that made me returned to what made me feel bad.
One recipe that I mange to put together while doing this plan is the Flax Seed Sheet Bread, my friend thinks is Yaqui but I actually like it very much, plus it replaces my need for bread which is sadly big. I had been noticing that flour is what makes me feel bad, I think. When I leave out the flour from my diet for at least 3 days, my body feels better; my knees don't sound as much, my joints in general work better. I am no doctor whatsoever but I think, if it works I need to really try hard and stick with it. Also when eating this bread, it works even better and faster. I will do more research on it, but i heard that Flax Seeds are consider Natural Hormones. Maybe that is why I was able to leave all the pills out long ago.
I'm starting to feel that I might need pills again. I am going to try and start making my special bread. Still, I will keep making and writing recipes, but they might be a bit more healthier or at least the ones I do for me, but there is always the recipes I make for others. Food is not the problem, the problem is that sometimes we abuse of some foods more than other ones.
