Anyhow she said that while I was making dinner to put out a loaf of bread with some butter and put it on the table for them to snack on. It would stop them from asking how much longer dinner would be and fill them up a bit so that when you sat down to have steak or pork chops they wouldn't eat so much meat. I suppose you could do the same with cut up veggies and hummus or dip.
I don't know if I can make bread with a lot of fiber in it, even with "wheat" flour.
The problem with bread is, generally it is low fiber. Anything less than 4g per serving is considered low fiber (in anything not just bread). 20-30g a day is a good goal, depending on your personal health and goals.
Anyway, white bread, and homemade bread with white flour, raises blood sugar levels, and is really not good for you. I'd RATHER my kids fill up on lean proteins (or veggies like you suggested) than something that affects blood sugar just like sugar..if that makes sense.
I'd love to make my own hummus, but it calls for something (can't remember the name right off) that I can never find at the grocery store. I don't have time to run around town looking for it.
Hey, we can make it a picnic with the critters y'all catch
Me too. And maybe Write Something with her and go runnin' with her hubby or do a little bow hunting.
Speaking of which, heh, we broiled the most tender, best tasting deer filets last week. I don't usually eat deer meat. My MIL fries it. So, my first taste was fried. It wasn't horrible, but I didn't want to do it again.
But last week I was hungry and tired, didn't feel like making something different for myself. So, I ate it.
YUM! It was so good. And I just broiled it up with salt and pepper. I can imagine how good it woulda been with some proper spices.
