I love this bread for so many reasons. Nutritionally, it packs a punch and won’t spike blood sugar. It’s keto and paleo-friendly and is also nut free! I love that I can bake, slice, freeze, and pop into the toaster. See below how I love to have it as a slice of toast with my breakfast for a #5tothrive approved meal! This high fiber healthy fat whole food bread literally goes with everything from toast at brekky, or a side of bread with salad and protein at lunch, or soup at dinner, or even with a smear of nut butter if you really need a snack – it’s so versatile! It’s also surprisingly easy to make, freezes super well, and is deliciously satiating.
This bread is no ordinary bread. Most loaves will buy you a ticket on the blood sugar rollercoaster, but not this one. My Humble Seed Loaf is literally loaded with vitamins, minerals, micronutrients, and fiber – loads of fiber! Recent studies in the scientific literature have shown that psyllium husk helps to lower LDL cholesterol, which this recipe calls for. There’s also more fiber for the variety of seeds along with healthy fats for our brain, and endocrine system function. Many of us don’t get enough fiber (up to 12g per day) when our ancestors got up to around 100g of fibber per day we can see why there’s alot more leaky gut and auto-immune diseases. Our good gut buddies preferred source of fuel and food is fiber. This helps them to proliferate so that they can produce short chain fatty acids (SCFAs) such as butyrate to help prevent leaky gut and diseases. Make sure you remember to hydrate with more water if you are increasing your fiber intake so as to prevent any constipation. If you are looking for some of my other more pliable and softer breads check out my Beyond Bread Buns and my Flat-Bread Chapati.
The aroma in your kitchen while this loaf of bread bakes is just heaven. While it contains simply seeds, its taste, texture, and flavor are complex and rustic, hence its name ‘The Humble Seed Loaf.’ Breads don’t have to be “bad” they can be “upgraded” and I have 3 amazing aforementioned delicious recipes that have changed our life and will hopefully change yours too!
