Bread Hack: Low-Carb? No problem! Gluten-free? That's fine!

Let's be honest, who doesn't love bread?

Unless you have a very specific condition where it is medically advised for you to avoid it, there is no reason to avoid bread.

But keep in mind, not all bread are created equal. The secret to maintaining healthy eating patterns is always in the ingredients. More often than not, pre-packaged breads are filled with added ingredients that make it carbohydrate-dense and exacerbate inflammation.

The good news is that there are alternatives!

So without further ado, here is a simple and nutritious bread recipe adaptation from @korinsutton, originally shared with me by my dear friend, Shannon.
