When you are trying to avoid eating grains, keeping yourself away from bread can be quite a challenging task.
Because some days, we all just want to bury ourselves in a huge loaf of delicious bread – or, a really great yummy pizza with a cheesy stuffed crust.
However… then we have to deal with the bloating and heaviness later on that we didn’t exactly ask for when we were eating said food. Sometimes it’s fun to have something that’s a little lighter, whips up quickly and satisfies your hunger without going too wild and crazy.
I’ll be the first to admit that I love bread – and being able to whip up something that’s incredibly tasty and filling without feeling like you have jeopardized your health really makes things much more fun.
Going out to eat with a family of 7 is quite honestly much too expensive – not to mention you have no idea what you are eating … where it comes from, and if you are our family, you have to worry about kid taking off their clothing in the restaurant. Or losing shoes under the table.
Eating tons of bread (or, pizza for that matter) can feel so incredibly awesome at first, but after a while, you end up feeling like you have bricks in your stomach and your entire body feels sluggish…
So remember that next time you crave bread, make this.
Or if you are looking for a meatless meal for a light dinner go for it 😉

It always comes out incredible.
Once you have that big bag of tapioca flour, it’s quite easy to put it to use. If you regularly incorporate grain-free recipes, you will be familiar with using it up for many other recipes for your family.
But if you aren’t, here are some ideas to help you incorporate it for other meals:
