This caused my Facebook site to go into meltdown when I posted Nic’s Paleo bread. I wouldn’t recommend consuming this bread daily or in any large amounts especially if you are aiming to lose weight. It’s still a ‘filler’ as I like to call these items – as are those fancy Paleo breads on the market.
It’s interesting that we’ve become socially conditioned to believe we can’t live without ‘our daily bread’. We live in a society where supermarkets promote 85c bread to get people into their store and governments subsidise the wheat industry to get more of these addictive products out to the masses cheaper. Our health has never been worse, with obesity rates skyrocketing and diabetes, linked to overconsumption of starchy foods, is putting the greatest strain on the western economy.

Combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add the eggs, vinegar and olive oil and stir well.
