Yeast Free and Gluten Free Traditional Irish Soda Bread

posted in: General Health

This is one of my my favourite recipes for a wheat free and gluten free bread in the style of the traditional Irish soda bread. It does not contain yeast.

I find it much more filling and tasty than the shop-bought breads.  Ingredients 5oz Doves Farm Plain White Flour Blend 4oz rice flour 2.5 oz ground hazelnuts (I use a coffee grinder for this) … Read More

Last year, during a follow-up consultation, I watched a 6-year-old boy assemble the Lego pieces to make buildings, placing them on either side of an imaginary street.
