Yes it’s January so a lot of us are now making New Year resolutions and thinking about how we can eat healthier. I am passionate about eating good food any time of the year and I think it’s great that people are now so interested in learning about nutrition. However, it’s very easy to be a bit dazzled by all the new ‘superfoods’ like spirulina, bone broth and goji berries and forget about how amazing many of our everyday foods are. So here are 7 humble foods that don’t shout look-at-me but help us stay well and healthy in a quiet way…
Chapatis are just great for campervan life as they are really quick and easy. Sometimes I measure out the dry ingredients in to small freezer bags and then take these in the van so you only have to add the wet stuff (water and oil) when you want to make them up. You can use normal or gluten-free plain flour instead but the chickpea flour does give you some added protein. Glyn quite likes them cooked a little longer so they become crisp like the edge of a thin pizza crust and you can crumble them over your meal to add texture, but I prefer them soft and they are nice as a substitute for bread sometimes. Thank you, Lindsay!
I have been having so much fun in the kitchen lately, as I’ve been experimenting with gluten-free bread baking! And I’ve come up with a flatbread recipe that I have to share with you: Chickpea Chapati! Oh, you’ll love them!
These are particularly good with Indian curries, but the boyfriend and I have been nibbling on them plain, as they’re so tasty.
These are definitely doable for a weeknight: you can have your own freshly baked and gluten-free flatbread in 10 minutes. What could be better? Mix, roll, bake, eat. Done.
Ohhh, and do you want to know why I’ve been experimenting with gluten-free bread baking? Well, I’m glad you asked!
