Slow-Carb Cracked Grain Bread


This tasty bread is rich in flavor and high in fiber! For an added “zing” grind your own flour! There’s very little white flour, and those fast carbs are balanced by the whole grain. This bread is nutritionally dense, with plenty of fiber and protein! The carbs will be digested slowly, meaning it will NOT spike your blood sugar! Fantastic for diabetes or those wanting to lose fat and build muscle!


½ cup cracked grain (sold as cracked grain cereal)

1 ¼ cup water

1 package (2 ¼ tsp) active dry yeast

1/3 cup warm water (@110 degrees F)

2 Tbs butter

1 Tbs salt (Tablespoon of sea salt is best )

3Tbs baking molasses

3Tbs Agave Sweetener (or honey)

Learn to Eat Mindfully

Shore Health System’s Center for Integrative Medicine is offering the five-week program “Mindful Eating” beginning Tuesday, May 4 and ending on June 8. The class will not meet on May 18. The program will be held at the Memorial Hospital at Easton, 219 Washington Street, in the Nick Rajacich Health Education Center from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm.

 “Mindful eating is about opening the mind’s awareness to our food and to the body, before, during and after we eat,” says program facilitator Larissa Kitenko, PharmD. “In this course, we will explore our relationship to food as well as our habits and patterns by practicing of mindfulness.”

Kitenko, who is a meditation instructor and a trained Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction facilitator, will lead the group in mindful movement and a body scan. She will also teach a form of mindfulness meditation that participants will be encouraged to practice between sessions.

The cost of “Mindful Eating” is $70. For more information and to register, call the Center for Integrative Medicine, 410-770-9400.
