*Weight Loss Notes: Honey is optional and is used to activate the starter in this recipe. Since it will be fermented for seven hours, some of the sugars and starches are eaten up by the bacteria culture. It is then converted to lactic acid, carbon dioxide, and more bacteria. However, if you’re concerned it will affect your weight, you can eliminate the honey.
Two pieces of this bread is considered a carb serving and one piece is allowed in a fats meal, but limit other carbs.
Sprouted and fermented grains are easier to digest because the phytic acids and gluten is broken down during this process. Sprouted and fermented grains will not prevent weight loss, and many people who are sensitive to gluten can enjoy grains in this way, however, these flours are not completely gluten free.
†Prep Note: The baking soda is optional, but it helps with the sour taste.
