I don’t know about you guys but I LOVE a good lemon dessert. Lemon cake, lemon bars, lemon ice cream, anything lemon and I’m down to try it. However, after drastically changing my diet for my gut health, I thought the days of me getting to enjoy something lemon-y and delicious were gone. WRONG! This paleo lemon poppy seed bread will satisfy all your lemon cravings.

Eating can become a source of extreme frustration when navigating a restricted diet. Will this upset my stomach? Will this make my symptoms worse? Is this okay for my gut? Eating something can turn into a stressful experience and it gets exhausting! That is why I love to bake my own breads and baked goodies that i KNOW are full of ingredients that are safe for my stomach and won't lead me to stress and worry. I'm all about alleviating that unnecessary stress!

The funny thing is, I used to hate any lemon-flavored foods and desserts. I think it was partly due to the fact that I never really gave them a chance. Once I finally decided to give the lemon bars my mom had made a chance, it was love! I'd definitely been missing out on this yummy flavor until then.

I’m not joking when I say I could eat this whole loaf in 2 days. It’s that good! The perfect amount of sweet but not full of fake sugars that will feed the bad gut bacteria. Natural sugar from honey and tastes delish! Also free from grains and gluten to make your gut that much happier. Enjoy!
