I’m so excited to share this recipe with you! It’s one of my absolute favourites and comes from one of the wonderful families I work with. Their son, Marcus, who is just 9 years old and is autistic, absolutely loves this Paleo Pan Bread. And the best part? He’s made amazing progress in just a few months since starting on a new diet plan.
Marcus was struggling with gut issues and experiencing constant pain, which was affecting his mental health and language development. Even though he was already following a gluten and dairy-free diet, his parents were having trouble finding a solution. That’s when they reached out to our clinic, and we started a journey that has led to incredible results.
Marcus’ mum shares her inspiring story: “Changing his diet has been a challenge, but now he has a wealth of foods he enjoys, and we are committed to his future as in just a few short months, we have seen such a dramatic change. Not only is he pain-free, but his language has improved beyond anything we could have imagined at this point. I didn’t think I would ever hear my little boy ask ‘Why, Mummy?’….’”
It’s moments like these that make me so passionate about what I do. I love helping families find solutions to health challenges and seeing the amazing progress that can be made with the right diet and supplement plan.
So, without further ado, let me introduce you to this amazing recipe. It’s super easy to make and takes hardly any time at all. And who knows, maybe it will become a favourite in your household too!
Among all 127 World’s Healthiest Foods, FLAXSEED comes out number one as a source of omega-3s. The primary omega-3 fatty acid found in flaxseeds is alpha-linolenic acid, or ALA. The ALA in flaxseed has found to be stable for at least 3 hours of cooking at oven temperatures (approximately 300F/150C), which makes it available after ground flaxseeds have been added to baked goods like muffins or breads. FLAXSEEDS are also a great source of fibre and provide antioxidants due to their structure as polyphenols. The unique structure of lignans gives them a further health-supportive role to play, however, in the form of phytoestrogens. Along with isoflavones, lignans are one of the few naturally occurring compounds in food that function as weak or moderate estrogens when consumed by humans. Among all foods commonly eaten by humans, researchers rank flaxseeds as the number one source of lignans. Sesame seeds come in second, but contain only one-seventh of the total lignans as flaxseeds. To give a few further examples, sunflower seeds contain about 1/350th as many lignans, and cashews nuts contain about 1/475th as many lignans as flaxseeds. Finally FLAXSEEDS contain “Mucilage” which refers to water-soluble, gel-forming fiber that can provide special support to the intestinal tract. For example, gums can help prevent the too rapid emptying of the stomach contents into the small intestine, thereby improving absorption of certain nutrients in the small intestine. Arabinoxylans and galactoxylans are included within the mucilage gums found in flaxseeds. This combination of features—omega-3 fatty acids, high-lignan content, and mucilage gums—is a key factor in the unique health benefits of FLAXSEEDS.
