I apologize if this topic has already made the rounds as I am a new subscriber and have found this website because of this book. The book "The Wheat Belly" was a life-altering read which I will more than likely try to follow simply because of the significant amount of healthy benefits that result when the proposed changes are made. The biggest challenge I have found is finding a bread replacement that I can use in place of all the ingredients that are suggested not to use... Thus my interest in this site as I have read a lot of suggestions by others that come close. As a qualifier, I am a 49 yr old happily married father of 2 (19 & 16) who just wants to ensure I live to spend time with my grandkids (if they ever do come along) or as a minimum spend a lot of retired years with my wife in our retirement bliss...
So this entry is twofold, first to offer my humble opinion about the book, The Wheat Belly and second to seek out advice as to suggestions for a possible bread/loaf anybody knows of that would meet the very stringent guidelines of ingredients (or should I say, more specifically, non-ingredients) offered in the book. I have to say the book was a revitalizing read and a real eye-opener, and not one to usually just jump on ban-wagons, I have to say a lot of the content was logical and made perfect sense. I would absolutely recommend it solely as a knowledge based reference (not a good read if you're looking for drama, action, mystery or romance).
I will be very eager to see if any of you have read it and if so, if anybody has experience with making good, non-wheat, non-glutin-free based breads. My sole attempt was not a success but it was done in a 10 yr old bread maker (did I mention I am absolutely useless in the kitchen, something you may want to fully appreciate when/if you attempt to educate me).
Looking forward to reading some feedback on either the book or recipe guidance.
