Bread, the much debated to eat or not to eat story. Bread is one of humans earliest forms of man made products, dating back to 15,000 B.C. In the last few years with the rise of gluten intolerance bread has been deemed unhealthy, the reason for weight gain and various intolerances among other things. If you really look at how bread was made throughout history it was not bad for you. The modern version of bread, the “wonder-bread’s” of the world for sure have ingredients that could be done without, but bread in it’s truest form is not bad nor unhealthy for you. It’s delicious and made with very few ingredients.
My sister is celiac and she didn’t know she was until her 20’s. This bread conundrum makes me think because she always got sick when eating gluten, but I’ve always wondered if she made her own bread with yeast from the air and all natural flour and water would she react? People have allergies to food more and more these days and I wonder if it’s because it’s no longer “food” but processed shit that we’ve been fed by the conglomerates.
Anyway I heard bread is making a comeback and I for one could not be happier! Croissants, bagels, baguettes, the fresh bread you get to sop up the juicy remnants of an amazing home cooked meal you just devoured! Yum bread is all I have to say about that. Oh and butter….fuck don’t get me started!
