Gluten Free, Dairy Free Pumpkin Bread

Yep, you read that right! Not only is this scrumptious bread gluten free AND dairy free, it is also bean free, corn free, nut free, and egg free.  WOW! Now, I have scoured Pinterest for WEEKS looking for just the right recipe; not too complicated, not too many substitutions…sweet and simple.  Of course, I never found such a recipe.  I ended up taking bits and pieces of recipes I had found online and creating my own version.  This is a super simple recipe.  Prep time is 10-15 minutes and bake time is 60-75 minutes.  Makes 2 loaves.

My Bliss Theory

My theory is this:  if you strive for bliss, bliss you shall find.  Be present, be kind to yourself and others, invest in something bigger than you, eat clean, stay active, and know that every single thing in your life is a choice. Sounds like a hipster’s tumbler post? Maybe.  But it works for me.  I’m Kate: a divorced, nearly 30-something yoga teacher abiding a plethora of dietary restrictions and an addiction to cozy clothes.  I live with my boyfriend, our roommate, and a young lady with developmental disabilities who I care for. This blog is a way for me to share the bliss I have found through food, fitness, and friendship. Follow my blog to get interesting recipes to nourish the body, monthly yoga routines that sooth the soul, and recounts of adventures that rejuvenate the spirit. I strive for bliss every day, and every day I find it.  I hope you take this journey with me.  Namaste.
