Bread Protein Balls Recipe

I love a good bread. It's absolutely one of my favorite things. Bread can deliver amazing flavor when done correctly. It can also provide exciting texture and plenty of protein.

The more you knead bread, the more gluten you create. Those already familiar with seitan know that wheat gluten is total protein.

When you add nutritional yeast, flax or other nuts/seeds,  now you have a bread that is also a complete protein.

In the interest of doing things a little differently, I decided to do little bread balls because I figured they would offer a unique textural experience to other forms of bread. I also figured they'd make a nice little snack size bite. They're easier to shape than a flat bread, can bake in the oven, and take much less time to cook than rolls or loaves. They're great for dipping into hummus too.

As you can see, they're very cute as well.

you know what i find really sad. the fact that most people are more concerned with which celebrtiy married who and what others broke up than they are with the fact that animal byproducts are hidden in supposedly vegetarian foods.

lots of people in the world are opposed to eating veal and for good reason. yet most of these people consume cheeses, completely unaware that the enzymes to produce them come from calf (veal) stomach.

a simple, wholesome thing, such as kraft macaroni and cheese can contain goat and calf stomach enzymes. and all over the world their are vegetarians eating it, thinking it's harmless.

why do food labels not list such things? where is the FDA to protect vegetarians and vegans from eating animal ingredient sources? do we not have the same rights to know as meat eaters? are our food requirements less worthy somehow?

america and lots of other countries too, their economies run on meat and meat byproducts. milks. eggs. cheese. what would happen to the world if suddenly everyone refused to eat meat? the world would surely collapse. cancer and disease are big business. cholesterol medicine. doctor visits. health suppliments. the supermarkets and farms are just the tip of the iceberg. everything corporate depends on meat. that's precicely the reason no one should consume it. you want to oppose big business and corporate domination? you want to dismantle the current system and undermine the conglomerate that is government. there's only one way to do that. stop eating meat. stop drinking milk if you can. forget cheese. the world is built on meat. animals and all the ways we use them. the disease eating it creates. the poor health and nutrition it fosters. obesity. heart disease.

whether or not you like the taste of meat is beside the point. you've been convinced you need it. told milk it does a body good. you've been trained to feed into the massive meat machine that keeps the world running the same way it has for so many years. making people sick is a profitable business.

people being healthy, there's not a lot of profit in that.
