Why doesn’t bread agree with me?

Why doesn't bread feel good to me?

Many people feel that when they eat bread, pasta, pizza or other types of carbohydrates made with flour, they gain weight more easily, feel bloated or have heartburn.ADVERTISING

These could be symptoms that our body does not digest or assimilate these ingredients well and, in all likelihood, it could be due to gluten.

However, it should also be noted that breads are increasingly made with cheap and poor quality ingredients.

Today’s flours, yeasts and preservatives have turned most breads into industrial products that are of little benefit to our body.ADVERTISING


Gluten is becoming fashionable and not for good reasons It is a protein present in cereals such as wheat, oats, barley or rye that, for different reasons, can be difficult for some people to digest.

Eating gluten is not harmful unless we have an intolerance.

However, we tend to consume excessively refined flours, especially wheat. That is why  we recommend opting for good quality cereals and derivatives , made with different types of whole grains.ADVERTISING

We can opt for spelled or rye to provide more nutrients to our body.

Gluten alternatives

What gluten intolerant people should know

For people who do not want or cannot consume gluten, we offer the following healthy alternatives:

  • Oatmeal that is gluten free. This cereal is usually contraindicated for celiac sufferers due to the contamination it suffers from being processed in the same places where there has been wheat.

However, we can find a product that specifies that it does not contain gluten.ADVERTISING

  • Quinoa: Typical of the Andean countries, very rich in protein and fiber.
  • Millet: Millet is a cereal with alkalizing properties that is very beneficial for the digestive tract .
  • Rice: We can try different types of rice , such as basmati, brown, red, or black.
  • Corn: We must ensure that it is not genetically modified.
  • Buckwheat: Despite its name, it is not wheat. It is a pseudocereal with which we can make savory crepes as they are made in France.

Gluten-free bread

To prepare this simple and delicious gluten-free bread with seeds, we can choose the ones we like the most: flax, sesame, chia, pumpkin, poppy or sunflower, or a combination.

If you want to add spices, we can also choose them to taste: cayenne, ginger, cumin, curry…ADVERTISING


  • 5 tablespoons of seeds (50 g)
  • A pinch of spices (optional)
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons of water (40 ml)
  • A pinch of sea salt


  • First of all, we must grind or beat all the seeds well together with the spices . We can use the blender or a spice or coffee grinder.
  • In a bowl we will beat the two eggs and add the water and sea salt.
  • We will mix the seeds well with the liquid until we obtain a homogeneous mass.
  • We will put the dough in the mold we want (if possible, well spread).
  • We will bake at 100º C for 45 minutes. We will avoid the highest temperatures to preserve the antioxidants in the seeds.

Depending on the type of mold, we may need to bake for longer. The first time we will have to check the texture of the bread. The idea is to make it crispy and dry.

Some people prefer to use electric dehydrators to keep the properties of the ingredients even more intact.

  • We especially recommend the seed bread with a spicy touch of cayenne , which, in addition to having an intense flavor, also provides many health benefits.
