Zaatar Walnut Naan
Updated: Sep 14, 2021
Anyone who follows me knows that my Arab self will never give up bread, and I shouldn’t have to. When I make conscious decisions to pick what kind of bread I eat I am completely guilt free. Choosing breads made of whole grains, oats, barley, bulgur, flax, etc provide me with key nutrients that I need on a regular basis. Breads that should be avoided are processed ones like white bread! These don’t have the same amount of nutrients as whole grain bread does hence why it’s less desirable to eat. HOWEVER, does this mean I hate myself when I have white bread on occasion? Nope. I love myself and so should you all. When you are consistently making smart eating decisions and have developed nutritious eating habits, having foods you usually wouldn’t have is NOT going to kill you. Okay I am now going to shut up and give you the recipe to this mouthwatering, crunchy, flavorful naan for you all.
