Words have power — and these inspiring quotes are guaranteed to challenge the way you think and perhaps even change the way you live. This is not a thinly veiled attack on anyone or anything that may or may not be launching at the moment.
But this is me being annoyed with marketing tactics that don’t just imply but out and out say that the person who is launching the program is changing lives.
The only instance, I think, that such a statement can be made is if you gave someone your kidney. If you are thinking about spending your money on something that is supposed to change your life – check for a disclaimer at the bottom of the page that emphatically overstates that if you spend your hard earned cash on this stuff, you are the only one responsible for how you use it.

People often ask me why I don’t bake my own bread, and the answer is simple: the Danes just do it better. It wasn’t until I went for lunch at a friend’s place a couple weeks ago that my life changed.
You’re probably asking yourself how the heck this bread holds itself together without any flour. Psyllium seed husks are one of nature’s most absorbent fibers, able to suck up over ten times their weight in water.
First of all, when I make bread, there are bowls, spoons, measuring cups and flour everywhere.
Secondly, bread almost always requires some kneading, then some waiting, and then perhaps more kneading. Fourth, breads require a rising agent, whether that is a sourdough starter (this takes days to make) or commercial yeast (which should really be avoided if possible). I realize that few pleasures in life will ever be able to compete with tearing open a fresh baguette, or slicing into a thick-crusted country levain, and I am not suggesting that those pleasures be forgotten. To answer the number of questions about substitutions coming into the comments section, I will answer some here. I made this with cooked rice (a mix of brown, red, white) instead of the oats and it worked really well. I like this bread a lot but I’m not always crazy about the giant pieces of nuts and seeds. My husband makes this for us every week (it really IS life-changing!) and he puts all the dry ingredients into the food processor first to reduce them to a more flour-like consistency. I made this bread with quinoa flakes instead of oats as well and it turned out great, no need to add extra water.
Also, the high amount of fibre in the bread probably reduces the actual number of calories we absorb (unless you chew your food very very well, i suppose). Could you potentially double the amount for one loaf without ruining the consistency of the final product? My bread machine warns that using a lot of nuts and seeds will damage the non stick pan in time so best to not use your machine, I know I am addicted to mine !
I am also working on turning it into a savory loaf by adding more savory spices salted nuts and a little tiny bit of Italian sausage.
And Sarah has mentioned that hemp hearts do not need to be soaked because they are already really digestible, but what about the anti-nutrients? What about eating nuts regularly – we’ve been eating raw nuts forever, and soaked almonds are just yuck! To answer the soggy nut query – from what I have read, I understand you can soak and rinse nuts then dehydrate them at a low enough temperature to bring back the crunch without damaging nutrients.
Sprouted chia, flax and hemp are actually beneficial for leaky gut due to the great fiber that supports good gut bacteria.
It baked ok in the oven but ended up very crispy and raised on the outside and sloppy inside, so basically just too much water – hard to avoid with the soaked oats.
I think i’ll next try soaking the nuts and seeds and draining and going with the rest of the original recipe and letting the oats soak in the mixture, that will at least reduce the anti-nutrients considerably.
In January 1990, an old man in pajamas sitting on the edge of his bed was interviewed for a television broadcast in Romania.
The earliest confession of faith of the Church has been the simple declaration that Jesus is Lord. By the beginning of the third millennium of the Christian era, the belief that Jesus is Lord has affected the entire globe in one way or another.
To call upon the name—to believe in the name—of Jesus as Lord is to accept the fact that He has come to save mankind from sin, so that we might become the sons of God, having a relationship with God and becoming “partakers of the divine nature” (2 Peter 1:4).
If adoption as the sons of God, that is, salvation, is to have any meaning, we have to take seriously the sinfulness which precludes our sonship. To call Jesus Lord, we must confess our sins and begin to see ourselves as God sees us already. When the Apostle Peter was preaching on the Day of Pentecost, the men of Israel were pricked in their hearts. Having come under God’s judgment, having accepted responsibility for their transgression, the Jews were not content with mere lip service or even a public declaration and confession of guilt. And baptism is only part of the command, for the Apostle said, “Repent and be baptized.” Without repentance, without turning from sin and embracing new life in Christ, our baptism does not affect our lives as it should.
Those who were baptized on the Day of Pentecost were added to the Church, continuing steadfastly in the Apostles’ doctrine, not their own opinions. It was in the Church that believers heard from the Apostles what they themselves had heard and seen and looked upon, things which their own hands had handled concerning the Incarnate Word of life (1 John 1:1).
Hence, there is no New Testament evidence of salvation occurring outside of the Church, from the Day of Pentecost until the present.
Thus it is in the Church that Christ’s lordship reigns, engrafting us into His divine life, even now on this earth. When the Apostles first preached, it was easier to point to the Church and say, “Here it is.” Over the centuries, and especially since the Renaissance, when man became the measure, not God, Western Christians have had great difficulty determining where the Church is and, consequently, who Jesus is. Yet the divergence of religious opinion today stands in sharp contrast to the life of the early Church, which proclaimed “one Lord, one faith, one baptism.” Many calling themselves Christians today do not continue steadfastly in apostolic doctrine or communion, the breaking of bread, or the prayers. The lordship of Jesus Christ requires that the Church be the Church: the historic Church, neither more the Church nor less the Church than in any other age. To confess that Jesus is Lord means to persevere under the godly authority of the successors to the Apostles, both our bishops and priests, for they watch for our souls and must give account (Hebrews 13:17). To confess that Jesus is Lord means that the Eucharist must form the basis for our life in the world, else we shall not have Life within us (John 6:53).

To confess that Jesus is Lord means to yield up our souls and bodies as living sacrifices to Him (Romans 12:1). To confess that Jesus is Lord means to witness to His Lordship in the church to all mankind, going into all the world, making disciples, teaching all things whatsoever He has taught, baptizing them in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:18–20). To confess that Jesus is Lord, in short, means to proclaim in our lives and our lifestyles, with every breath that we breathe, this radical, revolutionary faith that God has taken flesh and lived among us, full of grace and truth.

Not because bread is inherently “bad” (in my books nothing is that black and white), but that I knew when I was basing three meals a day around a loaf of crusty, white French loaf, something had to give. And I like the ritual of walking down the canal to the bakery (rye bread is one of the few things I actually purchase “ready-made”). For this reason, you’ll often find psyllium in over-the-counter laxatives, stool-bulking agents and colon cleansing kits; basically anything having to do with poo.
The soluble fiber dissolves in water and soothes the digestive tract with its mucilaginous properties, while the insoluble fiber acts like a broom to sweep the colon free of toxins.
Well, the idea here is to use psyllium to bind all these lovely ingredients together without resorting to flour.
It comes in two forms, the raw husks themselves, and powdered, which are just the husks that have been pulverized. There is always a mess to clean up, and my biggest pet peeve is trying to get the very last bit of dough unstuck from the mixing bowl. It uses flour, which has often been stripped of much of its fiber, bran, essential fats, and unless milled mere hours before baking has lost most of its nutrients through oxidation.
For nut substitutions, the bulk of this bread is nuts and seeds so you’ll have to skip the recipe. You can use ground flax seeds instead of whole, but you’re going to need a lot more water as the ground flax seed is highly absorbent. Substituting the oats with quinoa flakes may work, but again, they absorb a lot more water than oats do. Oats are inherently gluten-free, but if you have a sensitivity to gluten, make sure to purchase certified gluten-free oats. A flexible, silicon loaf pan is best because you can test to see if the dough is holding together, and it’s easy to remove the loaf from the pan, BUT, a regular pan should be fine. Has anyone tried food processing the mix into a flour-y consistency before adding the wet ingredients? I was thinking about adding hemp seeds (I was going to half the chia and add the other half hemp). Even the atheists and agnostics of our day cannot pen a letter or date a check without making reference to the Incarnation, whether they know it or not. To believe anything else is to believe something less; and if Jesus is something less than God, no salvation is possible. John wrote, “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. We are baptized into His death, “that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. Life without repentance is like living on the porch of a mansion, refusing to enter the front door, which was opened through baptism.
They continued as well in the Apostles’ communion (koinonia), under the authority of those whom God had sent to proclaim the gospel to all men. This the Apostles declared, that the believers might have communion with them—the Apostles, for truly the Apostles’ communion was with the Father and His Son Jesus Christ (1 John 1:3). Because of it, however—because there has been this one, profound revolution in the history of man, as Sutea would say—the Church has become the essential sign, messenger, and declaration that what Christians proclaim to be true is in fact the Truth about Jesus Christ. Contact with and incorporation into the Body of Christ, the Church, by water and the Spirit, is the Apostles’ doctrine, not our own. Many, in fact, have come to the conclusion that in spite of the Scriptures, the Church is unnecessary. The moral life of which the Scriptures and the Fathers speak extensively as the sign of the lordship of Christ has all but evaporated from many of the contemporary denominations. To proclaim Jesus as Lord is to uncover the wealth of apostolic teaching about the lordship of Christ and to continue faithfully therein. To claim to be under Jesus’ reign but to reject the authorities which He has placed in the Church to rule over us is a contradiction. Sincere repentance, with regular confession to a spiritual father, must precede reception of the Holy Mysteries, lest we eat and drink condemnation, not discerning the Lord’s Body (1 Corinthians 11:27–29).
We must become more and more a people of prayer, formally and corporately, and also personally and in secret.
Then, that is a revolution worth celebrating, always now and ever and unto the ages of ages.
Because it’s quite a statement to suggest that a humble loaf of bread will change your life. I realized that if I replaced a few slices of bread a day, I could make room for things like greens, fresh fruits, legumes, and that I would be getting more nutrients from the same amount of calories. When I moved to Denmark four years ago I fell head-over-heels for bread all over again, except this time, it wasn’t light and fluffy – it was kind of like the weather – dark, deep, and intense. Something malty and definitely baked, toasty, nutty…when I rounded the corner to her kitchen, there it was. I just came back from running a detox course in Lisbon where I got all the participants in-the-know about this amazing little supplement that also helps to reduce cholesterol levels, aid digestion and weight loss, and alleviate diarrhea and constipation.
Taken during a detox, juice cleanse, or fast, psyllium can greatly improve the body’s ability to eliminate impurities. There have been some low-carb bread recipes floating around the ‘net as of late that take advantage of psyllium and I think it’s a great idea.
It is high in carbohydrates (often refined ones at that) and low in protein and healthy fats. Remove bread from loaf pan, place it upside down directly on the rack and bake for another 30-40 minutes. And for now, and hopefully the better part of your bread-munching days, I offer my latest and greatest pleasure to you; a loaf with no down-side, a bread with personality, a triumphant flag raised high exclaiming that deliciousness and health are not exclusive. Whenever I write an entire article about a specific ingredient, it is because THAT is the point of the recipe, as it highlights one way you can use it.

To make this grain-free (I just found out I’m allergic to gliadin), what would you recommend to replace the oats?! I take a couple of slices to work with me every day, and have them with cheese, almond butter, cream cheese and lox – it’s all good! Yet, unless our own lives are being turned upside down by the Incarnation of the Son of God, unless the revolution which is God coming in the flesh takes hold of our very being personally, we face the next year, and the year after that, ad infinitum, with no hope, no purpose, no meaning to our lives, and nothing to celebrate at all.
What does it mean to celebrate this revolution on a personal level, that is, on the level of our souls and bodies? Or as the Apostle Paul put it, “For the good that I will to do, I do not do” (Romans 7:19).
Peter had been preaching about Jesus, that He was the Christ of God and that they had crucified Him.
But when we repent, when we turn from the sin we have confessed and seek to live a new life, then we truly enter the mansion (the Church), for it is only in the community of the faithful that we can live the new life. This living relationship with and knowledge of God, in communion with the Apostles, is something which is made real in the Church, the great mystery whereby we become bone of His bone and flesh of His flesh (Ephesians 5:30–32). Only because God took a body in the Incarnation to save the world can there be any meaning of the Church as the Body of Christ through which God still saves the world.
Here is where we truly say, “Jesus is Lord,” as He sanctifies and cleanses us, as He makes us the glorious Church, His Bride.
It is especially ironic to hear people speak today of “only the Bible,” when the Bible itself was the product of the life of that Church which had continued steadfastly in the Apostles’ doctrine and communion, the breaking of bread and the prayers. Our private opinions about the faith, the Scriptures, the Church, and her moral life mean nothing. We must make time both to talk to God in prayer, and to listen to God speak His will for us. The Danes are excellent bread makers, especially when it comes to sourdoughs and of course, rye. A very beautiful loaf of bread, pretty as a picture, studded with sunflower seeds, chia and almonds, golden around the corners and begging me to slice into it. Hints of sea salt here and there, nestled between the oats, around the corner from a golden flax seed. Add this to the dry ingredients and mix very well until everything is completely soaked and dough becomes very thick (if the dough is too thick to stir, add one or two teaspoons of water until the dough is manageable). If you want to make it raw I suggest *trying* to slice it before you bake it and dehydrating the slices individually. A week or so after I started making and eating this bread I realized that my craving for sugar had almost disappeared. Now I’ll just use the hemp seeds I have on hand to replace the sesame, you’re a life saver! This was no simple “altar call.” This was no mass rally culminating in a decision for Christ at the end of the service. Their lives were marked by sharing the Lord’s Supper, not as a memorial to a fallen leader, but as a victory celebration of the lordship of Christ, His triumph over death, known to them in the breaking of bread (Luke 24:35). Apart from that Body, there can be no assurance of the truth and knowledge which are necessary for salvation. Here is where we feast on His Body and Blood, without which we cannot have eternal life in us (John 6:51–58).
To confess that Jesus is Lord means to repent and be baptized for the remission of our sins and to be added to the Church. I was able to walk by the plates of cookies or cake that often end up in the break lounge, and I didn’t feel deprived. This was and is how God has ordained for our sins to be forgiven personally, by our being added corporately to the Church.
They continued in “prayers,” not merely some prayers, or their prayers, but the prayers, the corporate worship of the community. Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.
I love going to the bakery on Saturday morning and getting a loaf of rye that has naturally risen for days, been baked for 24 hours, and looks and feels like a brick. The only thing I will emphasize is to replace the ingredients in the same proportion and with a similar ingredient for the best results.
It sums up the Christian faith in three words, and it is far different from merely noting that Jesus was born or that Jesus lived or died. Yet the lordship of Jesus Christ cannot become real in our lives until we begin to see ourselves as God sees us.
For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call. This baptism for the remission of sins is no mere “symbol.” It conveys the forgiveness of sins, to the Jews first, but also to all whom God shall call.
Our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin” (Romans 6:4–6).
To ensure the dough is ready, it should retain its shape even when you pull the sides of the loaf pan away from it it. Ground flax oxidizes quickly so if you want to use this form, always grind some yourself to use right away.
The gift of the Holy Spirit is no mere sentiment, but a sealing of the life which is to come. Confession of sin before God is a statement of simple truth, but it takes the humility of the Publican to confess it.
We’re so busy watching out for what’s just ahead of us, that we don’t take time to enjoy where we are. Learn to appreciate the things you have before time forces you appreciate the things you once had. Larson As we grow up, we realize it becomes less important to have more friends and more important to have real ones.
