BREAD, the kryptonite of the Banting community, is possibly one of the most staple food items in history. Over the years the recipe for the humble loaf has been adapted to suite the ever changing lifestyles of society. All sorts of unhealthy additives and preservatives have been included in the bread-making process which have increased storage time and completely altered the taste of bread. With the rise in the number of bakeries opening in town, purchasing freshly baked bread is quickly becoming an obvious wholesome option. Honestly, there’s nothing more delightful than walking into a store and immediately being greeted by a waft of warm, sweet, nutty, yeasty scents. You instinctively want to tear a piece off a loaf and enjoy it right then and there and wash it down with a bit of milk – just like the good ol’ days.
