August Favourites 2014 | Holistic Lifestyle

august favourites 2014

It’s finally September, so it’s time to confess what I’ve been obsessed with all month long. I’ve got some beauty favourites, some food loves, two ground-breaking health books, and one amazing YouTuber. You guys might be enjoying slightly cooler weather and might be getting excited about layering, wearing coats again, and colourful leaves, but we don’t get any of that here. The real summer starts in August and lasts until the end of November. Needless to say, I’m super hot and wishing for some cooling rain (not going to happen until November). Anyway, I’m not complaining. Just sharing the reality of Canarian life with you. :-) Let’s start with the August favourites!

Authentic Eastern European Rye Sourdough Bread

How To Make Authentic Eastern European Rye Sourdough Bread

Is your starter ready? Last week, I wrote about making your own sourdough starter from scratch using wild yeast. If your starter has been growing for 7 days or if you already have a ready-made starter, it’s time to make some authentic Eastern European rye bread! I literally grew up on that kind of bread, it’s a real diet staple in my contry, and I’d been missing it so much since moving to Spain. Then, I got a brilliant idea to try and make my own bread. Big success! I truly believe that Lithuanian dark rye bread is the best one in the world, and if you tasted it, I’m sure you would agree with me. Yes, there is the German one, the Russian one and the Scandinavian one, but none of them is as good as ours. Seriously! So today I’d like to share with you a recipe of the traditional Eastern European (or Lithuanian) rye sourdough bread with sunflower seeds (or any other seeds of your choice).
