Leah's Pecan Paleo Bread
Last night I was able to make this recipe from my friend Leah's Practicing Joy blog. Check out her blog and try it soon. This was my breakfast this morning. Pecan Paleo Bread and a couple of slices of yummy Gouda. Absolutely delicious together!
While I really love this recipe made with almond meal it's incredible made with pecan meal. Pecan meal is a snap to make in your food processor - just be sure to pulse it until until you have a soft meal but not so long you end up with pecan butter. Almonds are a stage 2 food in the Feingold world - meaning they are higher in salicylates. Pecans, however, are a stage 1 or lower salicylate and perfect for people with a salicylate sensitivity.
Right out of the oven you will notice a beautiful dark rye bread color. I sliced into it while it was still hot and it was great plain and with a little smear of butter. Joe likes the almond version but really enjoyed this. I think the texture is more delicate than the almond version. The pecan flavor is mild and wonderful paired with cheese.
So after all the sampling I've done it's time to leash up Elle and take her for an extra long walk to the park today! Elle will thank you Leah!
