I aim to feel both grounded and light on my feet throughout the day, so I’m always looking to make a clean meal with substance to achieve both. Eating delicious bread is not only grounding, but also one of life’s greatest pleasures. Not wanting the carb load to drag me down however, I make an aromatic keto lemon/lavender/poppy version to keep it clean. It’s great sandwich bread and goes beautifully with spreads. Enjoy!
