Do Paleo people feel the need to have bread once in a while?
YES. Goodness, yes! At least I do for sure. I love bread. Love its texture, love all that you can make with it (sandwiches, french toast, etc.) and I especially love how fun it is to eat it (its ok, you can call me weird).
Bread makes me feel all sorts of happy. Can you tell I have a thing for it?
Because of this strong love I have for bread, I am dedicating the next two blog posts solely to it. These recipes wont be the savory kind, noooo…they will be the sweet kind! My bread recipes will actually be based on two of my favorite fruits: blueberries (blueberry bread!) and bananas (banana bread!)
Are you excited for these? You should be. I was…a bit too much, in fact! I am almost done eating my two batches of bread, which I just made two days ago. Yikes! They are fan-freakin-tastic! You’ll see. You may want to make two batches of each, that way you can share one and keep the other one all to yourself. Gots to be strategic, you know?
Enjoy this Blueberry Bread recipe people; eat it for breakfast, for lunch and/or as a snack. My Banana Bread recipe will be posted soon…so stay tuned!
