The Art of Baking with Natural Yeast... new book, check it out!
Hello Allergy Moms, and friends alike! Just thought I would share a new book with all of you. I'm still learning more about this, but felt really good about sharing a way for us to make our "safe" foods completely from scratch. All while possibly eliminating some of the reactions we or our kiddos have been having due to a very common, and mischievous culprit. I'm sure I've got you wondering now, what on earth I'm talking about. Well, allow me to introduce Natural yeast. Now, as we all know, baking our safe breads at home is time consuming, expensive, and not always result yielding. I can't tell you how many times my amazing husband has made bread for me and the kiddos, when I am hungry and wanting something that required no effort on my part, and bless his sweet soul he always delivers!! Even making the breads at home, there were still store purchased items that were going in (yeast, and egg replacer by Ener-G) that one could not guarantee were safe for my bubble children. Recently, a lovely friend of mine asked me if we had been using "natural yeast". Admittedly, I had never heard of it, which is an absolute shame considering we made so much food from scratch. She told me about a book she picked up for about 6.00!!!!
Now, the 6.00 book is the kindle edition, but you also have the option of purchasing the actual book for just over 12.00 on amazon as well, which as we all know, is not too shabby for cook-book. Anyway, I have to admit, I have not yet tried this out. I am so excited to delve in to my world of baking with a whole new option. Though our cookies and treats do not typically call for yeast, this is going to be a great way to not only make our breads that much safer, but it's also VERY inexpensive to make. With how much it costs to eat "food-free", I don't know a single one of us moms that doesn't hope to save even a little bit somewhere. So, when it all comes down to it, check it out! I'm learning about it, and I think we should all learn out it... I'll do a post soon on any changes in my kiddos eating/reactions and keep you all updated, but for now, safe eating and happy days!
