A great gluten-free recipe for a daily staple that has other benefits too. Sorghum is an important grain because it gives an alternative to wheat for those who need a gluten-free diet, it is usually eaten as a whole-grain which keeps the hull and its’ nutrients intact. Sorghum contains selenium and niacin which are thought to help in the prevention of cancer. Flax seeds are especially good for digestion because of its’ mucilage gum content which forms like a gel in the intestinal tract, while cider vinegar is proven to improve insulin sensitivity and to reduce blood sugar levels for those with Type 2 diabetes. For those bread lovers out there, here is a great excuse to have a healthy egg on toast for breakfast, a healthy fish and salad sandwich for lunch and a healthy bean and vegetable soup with a chunk of this tasty rustic bread for dinner. You’ll know which side of your bread is buttered with this recipe!
