Who is not in love with bread? Rare are the people who can do without and besides more than 9 French out of 10 consume and the stereotype of their love for the baguette is well founded. But if you want to prepare your bread at home, here is a recipe relayed by The Independent and proposed by a cardiologist who uses healthy ingredients and beneficial to health, without cereals, gluten and especially without lectin, you will love!

Cardiologist Steven Gundry, known for his lectin-free diets, offers a simple recipe for low-calorie bread with only 90 calories for a slice of bread, and it does not cause bloating or inflammation. Its main ingredients are, among others, coconut flour, blanched almond flour and coconut oil.

And according to the cardiologist, it is not only carbohydrates and gluten that are harmful to health but also lectins that can be toxic to the body and found in traditional bread.

What is lectin?

It is a non-digestible protein found naturally in many foods such as cereals, beans or other vegetables and legumes. And according to Dr. Steven Gundry, it can cause disruption of digestion, leaky bowel syndrome and irritable bowel syndrome. Moreover, a rat study has shown that lectin can increase bacteria in the small intestine and reduce the defense of mucous membranes.

Indeed, if we take the case of almonds, whitening and removing their skin, they will be rid of the lectin.
