Basic Low Carb Yeast Bread

Wow after being on plan with Trim Healthy Mama for over 2 years we finally have a Low Carb Yeast Bread!! That is a big deal!!! This Loaf is a Fuel Pull unless you brush it with butter like I did so that it would take a pretty picture. This post may contain affiliate links to Amazon or other programs. I do earn a small commission from the sales made through these links; however your price never changes. You can see my Full Disclosure here Most of the time when you try to use yeast with alternative flours it doesnt work all that well because there is nothing to hold the CO2 in to help the bread rise. Ive tried this not only with this recipe but also with my Simple Soda Bread recipe. This recipe works the best for texture, I will say that if you decrease the yogurt in the soda bread it will also work well with the yeast, but thats another blog post. Adding Yeast to My Trim Healthy Mama Breads Ive been wracking my brain and trying many things to get yeast into some of my Trim Healthy Mama baking. Yes I know I do use it in my E baking, but the breads that are used in S meal settings just didnt taste right to me or to my husband. Personally Ive been able to sub without an issue but he has not, until now. Let me tell you the smile on his face when he ate this was worth all the headaches and loaves that had to be thrown out, and yes there have been a few of those. Using Other Baking Mixes to Make Low Carb Yeast Bread Yes this Low Carb Yeast Bread works with RunAmok Mamas Quick Mix. and my Low Carb Bakers Blend. Im sure it will also work with Brianas Baking Mix and with MamaShires Gluten Free Blend . I have not tested it with any of the other homemade baking blend recipes. I did add vital wheat gluten to this to help with structure, it is an optional ingredient so if you are gl Continue reading >>

Broccoli Sandwich Bread

Broccoli Sandwich Bread

different quantities the 500g (1lb) broccoli is a guideline but if you only have 400g (14oz) or up to 600g (21oz) it will be fine. higher fiber Add 1-2 tablespoons psyllium, oat bran, ground chia seeds or ground flaxseeds (linseeds). Ive also made it with whole linseeds. nut-free replace almond meal with bread crumbs, ground linseeds (flax seeds) or ground sunflower seeds. Each of these will soak up different amounts of moisture so youll need to be prepared for different baking times. When I made it with ground sunflower seeds the texture was wetter and it took 30 minutes. different vegetables cauliflower works really well. You could also replace up to half the broccoli / cauliflower with grated raw veg like carrot, beets, sweet potato, parsnip or zucchini. I wouldnt use all root veg though. other flavours I like to keep this simple so my sandwich flavours come through but you could play around with some grated parmsean, garlic or chopped herbs. Will keep in the fridge for a week or so. I like to keep it in the freezer and just warm slices in the toaster as needed. Continue reading >>

Quick Low Carb Bread Recipe Gluten Free

Quick Low Carb Bread Recipe Gluten Free

A basic low carb bread recipe. Enjoy it as toast for breakfast to complement eggs, to make a sandwich for lunch, or as a dinner appetizer. Its no secret that the one thing low carbers miss most is bread. This is often what is missing as an appetizer, enjoying a real sandwich, or just having a morning slice of toast. I do have a bread machine, but I rarely have yeast to make a proper bread. That is something that I plan to try in the near future. This week, I set out to bake a basic quick bread that could be easily thrown together with ingredients I typically have on hand. It needed to serve as a replacement for simple white bread and also serve as a base for other varieties of bread. Since I usually have both almond flour and coconut flours in my pantry, I used a mix of both in this recipe. Eggs were used for leavening, but I suppose baking powder or soda could be added to make a lighter bread. Since originally posting this low carb bread recipe, I have received a lot of comments. Some thought there were too many eggs. I have successfully made the bread with only 5 eggs, but upped the baking powder. That seems to have had little effect on the texture. If using fewer eggs still doesnt get rid of enough eggy taste, you can try substituting egg white for some of the whole eggs. Its generally 2 egg whites for every egg. To be honest, I didnt really notice a strong egg taste in the low carb bread. But, I generally eat it toasted with butter, or as a sandwich. I was very pleased with the results of this low carb bread recipe. This week, I plan to make cinnamon French toast using this bread. Imthinking this basic quick bread recipe can be used to develop sweet breads. In the future,I plan to experiment with that. I bet you have the ingredients for this easy recipe in your kit Continue reading >>

What Are The Best Breads For People With Diabetes?

What Are The Best Breads For People With Diabetes?

Is bread an option for people with diabetes? Food may be one of life’s simple pleasures, but for people with diabetes, deciding what to eat can get complicated. Foods that contain a lot of carbohydrates can spike blood sugar levels. Carbohydrates are found in many different kinds of food, including desserts, grains, and bread. Giving up carbs completely isn’t realistic, healthy, or even necessary. What matters is that you’re aware of your carb intake and make nutritious food choices. Breads can often be high in carbs. Some are overly processed, high in sugar, and filled with empty calories. Healthier options can be part of a satisfying meal plan for people with diabetes. If you’re trying to figure out which breads work best for diabetes management, this information may help. When a person has diabetes, their body doesn’t make or use enough insulin to process food efficiently. Without enough insulin, blood sugar levels can spike. People with diabetes may also have high levels of cholesterol and triglycerides. This means that it’s important to keep an eye on fat and sugar intake. People with type 1 diabetes require insulin injections daily and follow a specific type of eating plan. This eating plan is geared towards keeping blood sugar levels low. People with type 2 diabetes often follow an eating and exercise regimen geared towards reducing blood sugar. If diet and exercise aren’t enough to control blood sugar, insulin injections or oral medication may be a part of a daily regimen. Creating a food plan, making smart nutritional choices, and watching carbohydrate intake is recommended for people with both types of diabetes. Creating a meal plan can help people with diabetes control blood sugar and provide satisfying nutrition. There isn’t a one-size-fits-a Continue reading >>

Simple Whole Wheat Bread

Simple Whole Wheat Bread

This easy one-rise bread is ready in 90 minutes! Its soft and perfect for French toast and sandwiches. I also use it to make rolls. Make sure the egg and oil are at room temperature and be sure to aerate your flour before measuring. No mixer? Just mix it in a bowl by hand but knead longer, about 150 turns. (This recipe also works with all white flour) - Jenny Jones 1/2 cup (60 gms) bread flour or all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons (1 packet / 7 grams) instant yeast (or active dry yeast) 2 Tablespoons sugar (or honey but add honey after the milk) 1 cup (240 mL) 1% milk, heated to 120-130 F for instant yeast (or 110-120F for active dry) 2 Tablespoons (30 mL) olive oil (or any vegetable oil) Place flours, yeast, sugar & salt in a large mixing bowl. On low speed add about 1/4 cup bread flour until dough forms a mass. Place dough on floured surface and knead 50 turns. Shape dough into a loaf and place in a greased 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 x 2 3/4-inch loaf pan. Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm spot until its one inch taller than the pan, about 35 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. After the first 15 minutes, I cover the top of the loaf with a foil tent to prevent over-browning. Remove immediately from pan onto a cooling rack. Let it cool at least 10 minutes before slicing. Want to Eliminate the Egg? Try my easy honey wheat bread . Didn't Turn Out? Other Questions? Find Answers Here.

Even with a good expiration date yeast has a short shelf life once a p Continue reading >>

Though people with diabetes should eat bread in moderation, sometimes it can be easy to get carried away. After all, bread is one of the most popular foods all over the globe. Just because you have diabetes, it doesn’t mean that you have to miss out on all the great bread that life has to offer. In order to be able to eat bread if you have diabetes, there are a few things that you will need to know. Sonya’s Story Sonya sat across from me. She looked defeated. She hung her head low. “I don’t know how I’ll ever give up bread,” she said. “It’s my favorite food. Now that I have Type 2 Diabetes, I know I can’t eat bread, rice, or pasta.” “You can have bread, rice, and pasta in small amounts. I can teach you which kind of breads are best for you, so that you can get some of your favorite food,” I said. “That would be great,” said Sonya. “Wow, I feel a lot better! When can I come to class and learn about this?” “You can come tomorrow,” I said. “I’ll find you some bread recipes that you can make at home with diabetes-friendly ingredients, so that the bread you do eat is healthier. It will also be lower in carbohydrates than some other breads, and the carbohydrates will be good carbohydrates.” Sonya came to class where she learnt valuable information about making diabetes-friendly breads.

What's The Best Bread For People With Diabetes?

What's The Best Bread For People With Diabetes?

By Brandon May Bread is perhaps one of the most widely used types of food on the planet. It can also be a food that poses a health risk for people with diabetes. Despite the risk, bread can be one of the hardest foods to give up. Fortunately, there are breads on the market that don't raise blood sugar to extreme levels. Whole-grain breads with high-fiber ingredients, like oats and bran, may be the best option for people with diabetes. Making bread at home with specific, diabetes-friendly ingredients may also help reduce the impact bread has on blood sugar levels. The role of nutrition in controlling diabetes Diabetes has two main types: type 1 and type 2. People with type 1 diabetes have difficulty producing insulin, which is a hormone that "captures" blood sugar (or glucose) and transfers it into cells. Glucose is the preferred energy source for cells. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes. This type of diabetes is also the easier form to prevent and manage with lifestyle changes and medication. According to the World Health Organization, over 422 million people have type 2 diabetes worldwide. In the earlier phase of type 2 diabetes, the pancreas can produce insulin, but cells have become insensitive to its effects. This is sometimes due to poor diet, genetics, and lifestyle habits. Because of this, cells can't access blood sugar following a meal. Nutrition plays a crucial role in diabetes control. It's only through putting proper dietary planning into practice that good blood sugar management can be accomplished. A good diet must also be combined with lifestyle changes and medication. A carbohydrate is one of the three major nutrients essential to human health. However, carbohydrates also raise blood sugar and can reduce effective diabetes control. This Continue reading >>

Diabetes and bread… So many questions come up about good ‘ol bread. And not surprisingly because it's a staple food that we've all grown up on. Toast for breakfast, sandwiches for lunch, a side of bread for dinner, it's a pretty common practice right? But if you're diabetic, should bread get the cut? Is it okay to eat? Are there certain types of breads that are better than others? These are all great questions so let's dig in and go over this together now. If you have any questions, just leave them at the bottom of the post and we'll chat about it. JUMP TO MENU: What Kind of Bread Is Best? | Wheat & Rye Breads | Sourdough Bread | Does Cutting Bread Help? | Making Low Carb Breads At Home | Is Bread Better Than Cereal? | Low Carb Bread Options You Can Buy | Free Bread Baking Class What Kind Of Bread Is Best For A Diabetic? We've recently covered the types of flours that are best for diabetes, so before we dig in and talk about breads, let's briefly look at the flour cheat sheet. See how everything above coconut flour goes up from 30 g net carbs and above, which is really getting up there. In reality, the best breads for you to eat are ones made from flaxseed, almond, chickpea or coconut flour, which are a bit more difficult to come by. Of course, the simplest way to overcome this is to make your own. But, I understand that not everyone wants to make their own, and thankfully, there are quite a number of companies that supply great low carb bread options you can buy. Whole Wheat & Rye Bread and Diabetes It's often recommended that you eat whole grains instead of the white stuff and it's true, whole grains are a better choice because they are complex carbs, rather than simple carbs. But, when you take the whole grain and grind it into a flour, it changes the way your bo Continue reading >>

Diabetic Bread Recipe: Quick Lemon Bread - Recipes For Diabetics

1/3 cup Granulated SugarLike (for the drizzle) 4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (for the drizzle) Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a bread pan with cooking spray. In a large bowl, mix SugarLike, ButterLike (or margarine), and egg whites until smooth Add remaining muffin ingredients and mix until flour is incorporated into batter. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Leaving loaf in pan, use a long slender skewer to poke numerous holes all the way to bottom of loaf. (This is so that the drizzle you pour over can soak through the whole loaf.) To make the drizzle, combine SugarLike and lemon juice in a small pan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until SugarLike is dissolved. Remove from heat. Slowly drizzle over top of loaf so that glaze soaks into bread. Let bread cool in pan on rack for 15 minutes, then turn out onto rack to cool completely. (A good idea: put aluminum foil or parchment paper under the rack to limit the mess/clean-up, should the drizzle drizzle out of the loaf too much while the bread is cooling.)
