Still Not baking your Gluten-Free Bread the Sourdough Way? You're Missing out BIG TIME!

Why, you ask? Let me throw some science your way.

Gluten-free sourdough bread doesn't just rev up your gut health, it's a bona fide ticket to maximum nutrient absorption.

This powerhouse process of sourdough fermentation turns up the dial on the bioavailability of the good stuff - we're talking zinc, iron, magnesium - your immune boosters, oxygen transporters, and muscle movers.

And that pesky phytic acid that binds minerals before your gut can absorb them?

Sourdough fermentation process tackles that head-on, slashing the phytate content in your bread and supercharging nutrient absorption

So are you ready to take a big leap for your health and wellness? Get baking with gluten-free sourdough bread!

Your body will thank you!

Cranberries Aren't Just for Thanksgiving Anymore

They're a vibrant addition to your meals all year round. They come loaded with essential vitamins and minerals like vitamin C, E, K, and manganese. Plus, they're a powerhouse of antioxidants!

Now, you might be wondering how cranberries can level up your beloved chocolate chip muffins or other baked goods. Well, cranberries offer a tart contrast to the sweet flavor of your traditional treats, adding a new layer of taste complexity.

How about throwing some dried cranberries into your muffin batter or mixing them into your favorite cookie recipe?

These crimson gems are known for their various health advantages:

  • They help prevent urinary tract infections.

  • They support oral health by inhibiting harmful bacteria in your mouth.

  • Their anti-inflammatory properties help reduce the risk of chronic diseases.

  • They improve your digestive health by promoting good bacteria in your colon.

  • They boost heart health by potentially improving cholesterol levels.

  • There's even ongoing research about their potential anti-cancer properties!

However, while cranberries are generally a healthy addition, we need to be smart about how we consume them. Since raw cranberries can be sour, most cranberry products, such as juice and dried cranberries, contain added sugars to balance the tartness.

A great way to enjoy cranberries without excess sugar is by adding them to your homemade trail mix, pairing them with plain yogurt or oatmeal, or using them in your baking. You could try out cranberry oatmeal cookies, cranberry chocolate chip muffins, or even a cranberry-glazed sweet gluten-free bread!

TOP TIP: The best time to stock up on fresh ones is during the cranberry season from September through October. They freeze beautifully, so you'll have a supply of these antioxidant-rich berries ready for your culinary adventures all year round.

So, ready to experiment with cranberries? They're an amazing way to add some nutrition and a pop of flavor to your baking.
