Carrot Bread

On this rainy day, we wanted a little comfort food for breakfast. WARNING: This recipe contains sugar. (gasp!) Sweet is one of the 6 tastes according to Ayurveda, an ancient medicinal practice. In the right dose, sweetness promotes happiness, contentment, calmness, cheerfulness and love. Are we saying eat sugar every day? No, of course not. Let's not overthink this too much, OK. As always use the best ingredients you can afford and find. This recipe is delicious with a cup of tea and a good book.
