Life changing bread recipe – as on BBC radio GLOS

I love sharing healthy recipes on the BBC radio Gloucestershire.  Here is the recipe for ‘life changing bread’.

Eating bread and cake may sound like a great way to help cope with weight loss and balancing hormones.  I call it cake as it can be made sweet or savoury – but I guess it is more like a bread then a cake.  This has been modified from the original HRT cake recipe inspired by menopause expert Abbie James.  We run workshops together and this is always a winner at retreat days. It is not only beneficial for menopausal women. It is a great recipe for the entire family. 

This cake is very special and is low glycaemic, low is sugar and packed with calcium and magnesium. It can be made grain free, dairy free, sugar free and vegan friendly. 

A slice a day is fantastic for all areas of your health. You can also switch out any ingredients you don’t have.  The version I made for Dom on the BBC radio had coconut flour instead of wholewheat and it works just as well. 

It freezes well too. 

Batch cook several loaves and freeze so you have it handy when you run out.

(makes 2 loaf tins)

  • 2 ¼ cups wholewheat/buckwheat/rice or other flour
  • 2 pieces stem ginger, chopped
  • 2 cups raisins
  • 1 ½ cups porridge oats
  • Approx 1 litre soy/rice/almond/oat/hemp milk (1 carton)
  • ¾ cup linseeds/flaxseeds (ground)
  • 1 tablespoon malt extract (or honey)
  • ½ cup sunflower seeds
  • ½ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup sesame seeds
  • ½ cup flaked almonds
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced
  2. Grease and line 2 small loaf tins
  3. Combine all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl
  4. Add milk and malt extract – mix well and leave to soak for 30 minutes. If the mixture becomes too stiff add a little more milk.
  5. Spoon into tins and level the mixture
  6. Bake for 30 -40 minutes until golden and cooked through
  7. Cool on wire Slice when cool – will keep for 5 days in fridge in a sealed bag. Freeze for 2 months

Focusing on your digestion and gut health is paramount to creating lasting health and hormonal balance.   When your organs are functioning well, your menopause symptoms will be less.  The liver and the digestive organs need to be in good shape to avoid inflammation, irritability and hot flushes.

Nowadays, the gastrointestinal tract is sadly neglected, impacting how we feel, how well we sleep and how good we feel about ourselves.

As a nutritionist, I’ve seen some of the symptoms experienced by sluggish digestion including; bloating, skin issues, tiredness, lack of enthusiasm, hot flushes, food cravings, bad wind, bad breath, headaches, constipation and IBS.  Do you see any correlation between these symptoms and your menopause symptoms?

The good news is, I’ve also seen how great you can feel when you look after your digestive system.

Healthy Weight-Loss – How To Lose Weight The Healthy Way

Slow and steady – in this case – most definitely wins the race. It isn’t really a race… One of the most misconstrued ideas around weight-loss is that you need to dramatically cut calories in-order-to lose weight. It’s often accompanied by following strict rules and trying to stick to an unrealistic number of calories each day – does 1200 kcal sound familiar? The average energy intake for adults is approximately 2’080 kcal/day (8’700kj/day). Reducing your energy intake by approximately 500 kcal/day is the best place to start for most individuals – helping to reduce weight by approximately 0.5 kg/week. In addition – that golden rule “Calories in = Calories out” – #not-always. What happens in the kitchen, doesn’t stay in the kitchen when it comes to weight loss – the biggest contributor to holding on to that extra weight is what you’re putting in your mouth, followed by how long you spend sitting on your bum – a lack of regular physical activity is a major contributor to weight-gain and hinders weight-loss. So – here are some practical and easy guidelines you can follow:
