Sprouted Bread

As part of my regime of eating more raw foods I tried Sun Valley Foods sprouted wheat bread, with ginger and with dates. I loved it. So I bought some wheat, soaked it, ground it and cooked at 110 degrees C, which the experts tell me will keep the precious enzymes alive, for about 2 hours. It was even better.  poliphilo  prefers the ginger one but the plainer the better for me.

I enjoyed it so much that I immediately put more wheat to soak and now, as I write, I can smell it cooking downstairs.

It is not much like bread that you buy in the shops, or make with yeast, it has a very moist interior - makes me think of cake.  It is a good low calorie cake substitute and I like to eat it just as it is with nothing on.

3 things you can't live without

Whilst watching a very silly blind date type tv show last night the masked girls who were hoping to be chosen by the lone guy had to give 3 things they couldn't live without.  They came up with mobile phones, lip gloss, shopping bag and such like.  poliphilo  and I then tried coming up with 3 things we couldn't live without.  We both thought of our computers and the internet (1 or 2 things?), and our medication (does that count?) and then ..... we were stumped.

What would it be for you?
