    Interesting recipe. Thanks for sharing. Yes, we had heard lots about TRE, @Humdinger1 & borrowed 'The 10 hour diet' book from the library. It seemed to make sense, ties in with what Michael Mosley has to say on the subject, so we are doing 14:10, with an eating 'window' of 10am to 8pm. Early days, we'll see how it goes!

    Thanks for posting the bread recipe @Humdinger1 - much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I don't have a bread machine though so still on the look out for a tasty low carb bread recipe for the oven x

    I think @teapot2 it will still work in the oven.

    @teapot2 here is the rye bread that DH makes in the bread machine :smile:

    240ml water at 110° Fahrenheit 
    2 teaspoons salt (we use reduced sodium)
    60 ml oil
    60 ml honey
    2 eggs at room temperature 
    3 tablespoons dry milk (optional)
    525g rye flour
    1 sachet (7g) bread machine or active dry yeast; best results here from McD**galls fast action 

    Add all ingredients to bread machine in order listed.

    Select wholewheat (100% wholewheat if machine has one) setting for 2lb loaf.

    Look at it after 20 mins to check all ingredients have been mixed by paddle.  If not, use spatula to mix in any that's gone astray.

    After that, on our machine it takes another 3 hrs 20 mins.

    I hope you enjoy it.  Thanks everyone for looking in.  Love Humdinger xx 
    Do you know how many g of carbs per slice that recipe works out at? (I guess it depends how thick the slices are...)

    @jackieblack indeed it does. It depends on the flour too as I think that's the main carby ingredient.

    Indeed, I probably should have written I know it depends, instead of guess… (lazy speech pattern I’ve drifted into) but there’ll be sugar in the milk powder and honey too
    l’ll do a calculation when I have the time to spare and see how it compares to the bread I know doesn’t spike my BG

    It is so variable, what spikes our BS. I make a buckwheat loaf and only today I noticed I crave sugar/carbs on the days I have it. So looked it up and yes, it is healthy and GF but it is high in carbs. Sooo, that is the end of that. I'm going to have a go at seed crackers next...

    Wishing everyone a good weekend  :)
