Paleo LOW GI Bread that is JZ Approved

Yup, I approve alright?  But, having the word bread in your vocab may not be such a good idea, so moving forward…Let’s call this A Low GI Loaf!  Ah hah!

While most Paleo eaters might believe this as a non-paleo meal because of the baking powder and honey, it kinda is.  But, for logistical safety, let’s call it a Low GI thingy majingy instead, ok?

So, how did I come up with this one?  Well-I have been getting tons (and I mean tons) of inquiries about putting bread into the plan, and many of you know that bread is processed, fat’s best friend, and a pro-inflammatory food.  In other words, it’s crap.  So, while a nice loaf of Italian bread is to die for (literally), it just ain’t worth it.  So my darling readers, I figured let me come up with something that is easy, yummy an occasional treat, or a morning accessory.

Here’s what to get and how much to use:

  1. Trader Joes Almond Meal (LOVE THIS STUFF): 1 whole bag
  2. Nutiva Coconut Oil (LOVE THIS STUFF TOO): 2 tbsp
  3. Organic Honey: (don’t do what I did and pour a slurp into your mouth first): 2 tbsp
  4. Kosher Salt: 1 tbsp
  5. Baking Powder: 2 tbsp
  6. Egg Whites: 1/2 cup (you may need more so check out the consistency)
  7. Small casserole pan

What to do with all this stuff:

Put the contents into the casserole pan after spraying the pan with fat free olive oil spray.  Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.  Don’t be shocked that the precooked blob is harder than cookie dough.  But, be aware that the oven time may vary so check on it so that you don’t burn the loaf.  Do not eat more than a palm size at any given time.  You know why?…Because this loaf, while is comprised of healthy fats (almond meal and the coconut oil), is calorically dense so too much will hinder your results.  One piece at a time.
