Almond Flour Bread With Jam!

Gluten really is not good for anyone, even if you are not aware that you are being affected by it, you are. It also takes 6 months to get rid of the effects of gluten from the body – especially if you are looking to heal your gut and address a thyroid problem. But it’s hard at first to cut it out, so I would like to share a recipe with you that will help you have a ‘substitute’ in the meantime, and some healthy jam too!
