Food

I probably spend more time thinking about food than an average person, but that's because I have to. I have so many restrictions in my diet that it's a real effort to find something new, but I've been lucky this summer. First of all, I found some really good glutenfree bread in the store I told about in an earlier post.

These are sort of pre-baked breads, so you need to bake them for 15 minutes in 200°C. The first one is amaranth bread. It feels really hard when you take it out of the package, but it softens nicely in the oven and tastes really good. I also tried the alternative way of slicing it and putting the slices into a toaster for about 3.5 minutes. It's easier and the bread tastes even better and has nicer texture.


I also found some baguettes. These are made of corn, rice and flax flour with sesame and flax seeds. I like these even better, because there's more crust and I like that when it is crunchy right after baking. The same manufacturer also makes a version without the seeds.



Moving on to the less healthy products, there's chocolate cake and muffins. I have found some chocolate muffins before, but they weren't very good, so I was happy to find the chocolate cake from the same company that makes the breads. This was good, but not as good as the chocolate cakes I used to make when I didn't know how bad wheat is for me.


Mini muffins from the same company that makes the products shown in the earlier post were actually better. I guess it's because there is less comparison as I didn't really eat this sort of muffins before my diet change. These are really small and packed individually, which is always good, because for some reason, glutenfree bakery gets dry really fast. My main problem with these is that the outer package says there are 9 muffins inside, but there are only 8. I have tried the cocoa muffins as well and that package had 9 muffins.
