Commentary: I love, love this recipe. I crave this. Spelt is a healthy alkaline grain alternative to wheat. It is very low carb so, you can eat it and not feel bloated or guilty. This makes a beautiful risen fluffly bread. This bread will feed a family for shabbat all day or during the week , make every couple of days. This is a very quick no rise bread. Enjoy!
Recipe from: ShampariYah, Hebrew Baby
4 tb ground flax
12 tb water
microwave 10 seconds
a couple teaspoons to taste salt
a couple teaspoons sugar (agave)
3 tablespoons ground mustard
1 tsp cayenne
slowly add 1 cup oil and process
2.5 tb lemon juice
Commentary: I ended up really improvising on this recipe. You may have to add more flax if you want it thicker. I also added more salt and agave and ground mustard. The recipe called for more oil but, I found it tasted like oil so I reduced oil. All in all after the improvements from above it tasted like mayo after sitting for a bit. Mine was thin but, it is a light healthy alternative to mayo. It's yummy on sandwiches and I use it as a spread on my spelt bread instead of butter.

Smoothies have become a regular morning practice for my family. I prefer to drink my greens rather than eat them. I also can ensure my chilcren are getting good amounts of vegetables. When you begin to eat or drink very nutrient dense foods you will become very saitiated. Your cravings will disappear because the cravings are a result of your body needing some nutrient it does not need. It is a very wonderful and simple way of eating to live. It's so wonderful.
Blend , baby, Blend! I strain with my new cheesecloth and I love it much better then my little old metal strainer. One blenderful will make enough cups for 1-2 adults and four children. If you can make smoothies another time a day, you are well on your way to excellent health.
