• 2 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 cup honey
• 1 package of Hodgson Mill Fast Rise Yeast
• 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
• 2 ( 4oz) unsweetened applesauce
• 1/2 cup vegetable oil
• 2 cups water, warm plus 2 tablespoons
• 6 cups Gluten Free Flour
• 1 1/2 cups Hodgson Mill Soy Flour
Mix together salt, honey, yeast and almond milk. Add applesauce, soybean oil and water. Combine flour and add, one cup at a time to yeast mixture. Keep adding flour until no longer sticky. Knead by hand or with a dough attachment 5-10 minutes. Place dough ball in clean bowl rubbed with soybean oil. Turn oil side up. Cover and let rise until doubled.(1 hr 30 min)
Punch down and divide into 2 equal parts. Form into loaves and place smooth side up in oiled loaf pans. Let rise until dough is above the rim of pans.(30-45 min) Bake at 350 degrees F. for approximately 25-30 min.
Cheat trick: If you are using a bread machine, combine all the ingredients and place in the bread machine and set your machine for the appropriate setting. I used the quick bread setting for this bread. I usually use the dough setting and then bake it on my own. This bread came out better than I expected and I still have some of it. I am trying to make most of my baked goods from home because it is cheaper and safer. I keep reading about all the preservatives that are being added in foods and it sickens me to think that my kids were eating such harmful chemicals. I am constantly looking for new and healthy recipes.
So if you have one to share, please feel free to share and I will let you know how my family responds to them. Once again, thank you for stopping by 🙂
So I have a major sweet tooth and that makes it really hard for me to stay healthy. Thankfully, I love smoothies and they are good sugar substitutes.

The soy milk didn’t mix well with the papaya but it could just be my taste buds.
First on the list is Sodium Nitrate. Switching to turkey bacon in the morning is not good for your health. The reason, sodium nitrate is in processed meats, such as, hot dogs, regular bacon, turkey bacon, bologna and many lunch meats.
What is sodium nitrite? Sodium nitrite is a food additive used as a preservative. It is used to extend the life of meats, and to prevent the growth of bacteria.
What’s the problem? Sodium nitrite is toxic. When you eat it, nitrosamines are formed. These dangerous compounds are highly carcinogenic. During lab studies, researchers inject these compounds into lab mice when they want to give them cancer. Clearly, this is not something we should be consuming. Although you may be consuming less fat by eating turkey products instead of red meat, you are not necessarily reducing your cancer risk. In fact; cancer risk is thought to be higher…
