Carrot graham bread

Where I’m from bread is a staple food. Bread is the most essential part of the meal. Ok, almost, but if there’s no bread with the other food on the table, the meal is not complete. And the whiter the bread, the better it is. Well, not healthier. We know that, but yolo, just give me some bread!
Where I’m from, we eat bread with other carbohydrates like potatoes, wheat pasta, rice, etc.

Where I live now, white bread is a big no-no. Yes, occasionally it´s okay to indulge yourself in a delicious loaf of bread. Usually, it´s the part of the breakfast, used to make sandwiches and maybe with soups, but never to the main course.

Leaving my home country didn’t make me leave my affection for bread. Yes, I’m aware that it’s not the healthiest food choice, but everything can be made healthier. That’s my food moto right there.
So instead of using white flour, I made a bread with graham flour adding shredded carrot and flaxseed.
