Another summer garden favourite recipe with zucchini ~ this slice is simple & healthy is great served hot or cold with a garden green salad.
I use oat flour as it is more nutrient-dense than wheat flour – it is high in fibre, heart-healthy, anti-inflammatory,
and oats are soothing to the nervous system.
High fibre foods are an important part of a healthy digestive system. Whole grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds are high in fibre.
Recipes are gluten-free. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley and rye products. People with autoimmune Celiac disease are allergic to gluten.
Recipes are oil-free and have no added oils as ingredients or for cooking with. An oil-free diet can be beneficial for some cardiovascular diseases.
Dairy-free Recipes have no animal milk or milk products no cheese, no yoghurt. Dairy is a common food allergen, dairy can cause inflammation.
