I've got an experiment going. I had read in a book about something called 'No Hunger Bread'. Originally it was made from the 'recipe' of what the Hunzas of the Himalayas eat each day, which is known to be one of the healthiest groups of people on the planet. (many, many of them live to be over 100years old)
Anyways, the person who came up with it noticed that when he ate it, he was full for like 6 hours and eventually lost 30lbs and kept it off. Several people had the same effect. He tried to market it, but the FDA shut that down...I looked all over the internet for a recipe, but found conflicting information. So, I'm doing my own thing.
I know that it is made from whole grains, it has lots of honey in it, butter and it has some kind of leavening in it because it needed to rise for 6hrs. I just realized I forgot something important- it had herbs in it. I don't know which ones though, and I was planning to add cinnamon and other stuff to the dough, but I forgot...oops.
So, this is what I did:
1 cup sourdough starter
1/2 cup of honey
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 softened butter
2 t salt
approx. 1/2-1 cup water
I mixed these together well, then added 2-3 cups whole wheat flour, 2 cups buckwheat flour, 1/3 cup of millet and 1/4 cup raisins. I would have ground the millet, but I don't have anything to grind it with. I wanted to add other fruit too, but I don't have any right now. It's rising now, and then I'm supposed to bake it at a low temperature, and remove from the oven just as it's going from dough to cooked. I'll gather more information about it later and let you know how it turned out- I have 4 kids today-gotta go!

Weird looking huh? It tasted ok, but I went ahead and donated it to the compost pile :)
