Organic Pore-Minimizing Bread
A delicious way to minimize your pores by cleaning out your system

Active prep time: 10 minutes
Inactive prep time: 2 hours
Bake time: 40 minutes

Ingredients:
3 cups of spelt flour
1 to 2 cups of whole wheat flour
1 ½ cups of ground flax seeds
1 cup chia seeds
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 packet of dry yeast
1 tablespoon of honey
2 teaspoons of sea salt
1 cup of warm water

Directions:
Bloom yeast in warm water by combining yeast, water, and honey in a bowl. Let rest for 5 minutes.

Mix all dry ingredients. Add bloomed yeast and extra virgin olive oil. Mix until well incorporated. Knead for 5 minutes.

Apply just enough extra virgin olive oil to coat the bowl. Gently place dough in bowl and cover with cling wrap. Let rest for 2 hours in a dark, warm place. This dough will not rise much at all. It is a super-dense bread.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Allow oven to heat up for at least 20 minutes before baking bread.

Punch down dough and shape it into a loaf of desired length. Place in preheated oven and bake for 40 minutes or until golden brown. When you tap on the bottom of the loaf it should sound hollow. Let cool on a wire wrack.

This is a nutrient-dense bread that will help stimulate your colon and will naturally cleanse your system. Flax seed and chia seeds are excellent for you. The cleaner your colon is, the smaller your pores will be, and you will have fewer break-outs. It is delicious toasted.
