In August of 2009, my Group B son began to tolerate small amounts of starchy foods. I was extremely hesitant in introducing any foods related to the grain food group due to his usual reaction to even traces of starch such as soy flakes in canned tuna.
My son’s natureopath had encouraged me to try sprouted grains for over a year when I finally started offering him Ezekiel 4:9 bread. He loved it and showed no adverse reactions! The wonderful thing about this sprouted grain bread is that it is a complete protein and a source of fiber.
Depending on your child’s tolerance for starches, you may want to start with one slice at a time.
Here is one way I prepare the bread for a quick snack or fast breakfast:
2 slices Ezekiel 4:9 bread (keep frozen until use, dividing pieces with a butter knife if needed)
2 tablespoons Ricotta Cheese
1 teaspoon honey
Toast frozen bread slices on medium setting. You may need to toast twice depending on your toaster. Spread on a thin layer of butter to soften warmed bread if desired. Spread on Ricotta cheese and drizzle with honey. Serve.
- Soak slightly toasted bread in egg and milk batter, cook on medium heat and serve as French toast.
- Substitute Ricotta cheese with almond or peanut butter.
- Substitute Ricotta cheese with Simply Fruit jam (take with Sucraid).
