Low FODMAP & Gluten-free Recipe – Blueberry & Raspberry Mini Loaves

Low FODMAP and Gluten-Free Recipe - Mini Blueberry and Raspberry Loaves

These mini loaves are actually quite big but Adriano eats two at a sitting. I struggle through one and often chop them in half. Talk about envious! There is no way I can eat what I want. To stay the same weight, I have to watch every single thing that goes in my mouth. I am finished at the table in 5-10 minutes. Adriano is eating for half an hour. Maybe I should take up mountain biking. But then again, maybe not. He often comes back with scrapes and wounds that surpass those of  rugby players and boxers. I am tired of the sheets being covered in drying blood. But wrapping one’s wounds is not manly and they have to breathe. But all over the sheets?

My life today is at 180° from where it was only a month ago. The only headaches I get now are when I have spent more than 12 hours at the computer with only a few breaks, and that’s so my fault. Otherwise, life is good. I walked along the beach today as I do everyday and I realised that I was happy and at peace. There has been so much sadness and stress in my life in the last seven years that I had forgotten what it felt like. Long may it continue.

    Life can be unfair. While my husband is the type of carnivorous human that doctors warn are at risk for everything, he is soundly healthy. I eat mostly vegetables and fish and yet struggle with my weight and have to have constant tests to monitor my “numbers”. Stupid genes!

      It is all about those genes we got given, isn’t it! My husband is a super athlete and as healthy as they come but he has high blood pressure inherited from various family members. Not a thing you can do about it.

    Biking can really burn calories! You could try road biking — not as dangerous as mountain biking in most ways, although you do face careless drivers, which may be worse. Anyway, great looking mini loaves. Love the picture! And glad to hear that life is better.

      I do bike – but inside on my Exercycle. LOL. I worry almost as much when Adriano is on the road as when he is in the wilderness. Both are not safe. Dario comes home from his motorbiking trip around New Zealand today so I will be able to breathe again.

    Adriano is lucky with his metabolism. But I’m sure doing all that bike riding would certainly assist. He’s also blessed to come home to such lovely baking and it sounds like he sure does appreciate all your cooking. I’m glad to hear you’re feeling so much better. It sounds like leaving your job is doing wonders for your soul xx

      He is lucky though I suspect the weight would go on him too if he didn’t burn thousands of calories every time he got on a bike. My baking gets hoovered in by him.
      Leaving my job has saved me in so many ways, Charlie.

      Evolution is a pain like that. It is always trying to average out to the mean. And yet I got my stiff neck and bad back from my father. It wasn’t working then. You can’t deny those genes.
