Save money and use only the most nutritious ingredients by making your own quality quick bread mix. This recipe came from Adelle Davis’ cook book, Let’s Cook It Right first published in 1947 and updated in 1970. I met Ms. Davis, who was a health food guru for the hippie generation, when I was a student at the University of New Mexico. Quarkwatch.org describes her as “the first ‘health authority’ among modern food faddists who had a formal professional background.” Her other books are Lets Eat Right to Keep Fit, Let’s Have Healthy Children, Let’s Get Well, and You Can Get Well. She is especially known for her “Perfect Turkey.” Davis’ ideas had a profound influence on me, and I still refer to her books. Her Quick Bread Mix is one of my favorites. I always keep it handy in the fridge for waffles, pancakes, and other applications.
