Give me bread - healthy bread.

Lovely readers,
Like me, do you dream about bread? ;) Come on admit it, you do. I cannot be the only person who dreams of warm comforting bread. That and a trip to Mauritius in one of those bungalow's that stretch out over crystal blue water, only accessed by a bridge. See, I knew you did :)
I have deliberately not eaten bread in ages. Put simply, bread and I are not friends. I can't control myself around it, especially after a night shift when I want to throw down a whole loaf with loads of butter and vegemite. Let's be clear, I am talking about Bakers Delight bread, not healthy bread.
The kind of bread that makes my bum get big - eaten in the quantities I want to devour it anyway.
Among all the random thoughts I have in a 24 hour period (and there are many), I have been contemplating introducing bread back into my diet that is healthier, gluten free and homemade - free of sugars, preservatives and other nasties.
And easy. It has to be simple. I don't ask for much and surely this is a better option than depriving myself of such goodness?

A lovely friend recently posted photos of the most delicious almond meal and chia seed bread that she made on facebook. I demanded that I must have the recipe immediately and presto, today I have made the most delicious, spongy loaf of healthy, gluten free, grain free bread.
The recipe is from Tania Hubbard's Gluten free, grain free blog and is quite the find. Her recipes look delicious and her cookbook would be the perfect Christmas gift.
With lashings of avocado heaped on my bread with just a touch of pepper, I was temporarily in heaven until I remembered there was a toddler whinging at me in the background, demanding yet another bowl of  yoghurt  :)
Find the recipe here and please, do yourself a favour and make it.
