Bread, I was aware of an existing autoimmune disease that I had.
I was just unaware of how severe it is.
Recently, I have had extensive medical testing done, only to reveal what I already knew.
Something needs to change, or I will be bedridden for a good part of my days.
So here I am making changes.
What to do?? Well, my recipes for my breads will all remain the same, however it is time for me to
create a some new ones. I was pondering my fabulous recipe and realized the only things in the bread that I am able to consume without getting sick are cinnamon and vanilla!!
That’s not very much!
My goal, over the next few months is to create a banana bread recipe that I am able to consume, (once I can add bananas back into my diet) which means that anyone with any food restrictions will be able to consume it. It will be an extreme change to my bread. People have asked for Gluten Free and I have promised. I now understand their disease and how they long for food they “can’t have”. But now I need to come up with a recipe that is Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Sugar Free and Nut Free.
I will be working with a pastry chef I met recently, to do all this. This is all new to me.
But change is good.
I will be healthier and I will soon be offering a product that people with autoimmune disease can eat.
Everything happens for a reason, including change!
I am grateful that I will be helping others because of what I am going through.
AND the best part ,
is I will be enjoying it!
