To buy a breadmaker is to take control. Just think of the enormous health potential in being able to engineer the contents of such a commonplace dietary staple! And of course, let’s not forget about the aromatherapy benefits of freshly baked bread.
About a year ago I discovered the pleasure of owning a breadmaker. At first, I found that even while the breadmaker saved us money it cost us plenty of time as I tried, not always successfully, to adapt my favorite healthy recipes to the new machine. After several incidences of ‘Flat Bread Surprise’ and other mystery loaves, we ended up with a small selection of truly healthy bread recipes. Now, with the publication of this new book, we can all choose from many more tried and tested nutritious recipes without the frustration of making mistakes.
For many, the purchase of a breadmaker is the first step on a road to health empowerment. The newest Natural Health Guide from alive Books will be even more valuable to the new bread-bakers. It takes the guesswork out of trying to create healthful recipes and allows us to use favorite natural ingredients with success.
Now’s the time to curl up with a good bread book and begin planning positive menu changes for the season ahead. Children with after-school appetites will love a healthy topping such as Quark Spread served on Popcorn Bread, and there are several more recipes identified as "kid’s picks." Healthy Breads with the Breadmaker contains recipes for all your favorites, but expect them to taste better when made right at your home (even while you sleep)! Take for example, Sprouted Wheat Bread and Cheese Bread. Or, you can make the day special by waking up to the aroma of Hazelnut Sesame Bread, Sour Cream and Onion Bread, Cashew Bread or Raisin Bread. Try your own Sourdough Rye with one of the natural spreads that complement the recipe section.
Share in the advice from Alles, Janzen and staff at the alive test kitchen. Along with the recipes, this guide serves up some essential tips about making bread, leaveners, whole grains and natural flours. No more guessing and no more adapting--just loads of healthy loaves.
