Making a quick bread to go with a curry is essential in my opinion. These yoghurt flatbreads were seasoned with complementary spices. That makes this recipe extremely versatile and will be a regular feature for curry dinners.
Head straight on to the Recipe For ♥ Yoghurt Flatbreads ♥
I am sure everyone who is reading this blog post has heard the term fight or flight. It is the body’s adrenal reaction to danger, stemming from the beginning of time. Adrenaline rushes through our system allowing us to take the appropriate action. In my case, even though I have an adrenaline rush, somehow I neither fight nor flee! This possibly stems to an incident that occurred when I was much younger. And now my body just stops. When the dog attacks occured I could not fight, and nor could I flee. In the first instance I had to keep Holly away from what was going on. And in the last attack I had to take care of Holly. My muscles were storing all the trauma and shock and left over adrenaline. I turned first to Rescue Remedy for both the dogs and myself as I know it works.

And then I looked to exercise to help release the tension. There is a school of thought that causing a tremor reaction in your muscles is good for trauma release. One method involved only two exercises, the first being a wall squat. This is followed by lying in the butterfly pose and then bringing the knees together until the tremors start. As I could not fatigue my quadriceps enough to make this work., I tried a second regime. This one consisted of 7 exercises but ended with the same result for me. Then I remembered that I could induce the tremor by stretching my hamstrings while lying down. I use a towel over the arch of my foot and get a decent stretch down the hamstring, one leg at a time. I just held it there and allowed the tremors to occur, healing my body.

We’ve made yoghurt flatbreads a few times and they taste so much better than the bought ones.I’ll have to compare our recipes.I’d love a curry and a flatbread right now.
I would be interested to see the difference, if any!
HI Tandy, the whole situation with the dogs sounds most traumatic. Thank you for this recipe.
It was really awful!
You are making me wonder if I should try these for my kids school lunches (I pack their lunches everyday so that they are much more nutritious than what they could buy at school.) So different and yummy!
I am sure they would love them!
Oh yum. I need to make these – I just strained some yogurt and I have the flour!!!
Good timing then! Enjoy 🙂
Guess what?! What you did in responding to a 2nd(?…!!) attack makes complete sense! What a great (and horrifying!) example of how amazing our ‘brains’ are!
So, they actually have a third category, and either officially or unofficially a fourth. Fight, Flight, or Freeze. Betchya can guess where I’d go with this…😉
I’m a touch deep in the trauma (healing) world right now and it’s pretty cool how clear your experience was. I get stuck in freeze and question a lot of it because I feel like most of my experiences aren’t the same as a previous one.
Idk. Mostly I wanted to thank you for sharing that sort of thing, and I also got excited reading those familiar trauma words, AND that I could actually share something, AND you just helped me see that MAYBE I AM making progress, too. It gets extremely complicated AND confusing AND isolating AND a lot more ‘ANDS,’ when attempting to understand, undo, and REwire trauma that was especially psychologically based; I can’t tell you how comforting it is to read many of each of our awareness-es growing!
Question. When you did the towel thing with your hamstrings (or any of the methods, really), is it as in a muscle spasm? Not a charley-horse, right? I mean, bc good grief, you’ve already been through enough, yes?! lol.
Sending love, and respect and whole healing. And prayers for never again a doggie attack EVER. Because all you’ve got left is ‘Fawn,’ the most recently termed trauma response. But OH, gf… do I KNOW that one. May all of heaven and earth and the Creator Himself forbid that happen, but just in case; know you have another friend/fan this way!
Thank you for this really amazing input! The tremor is not like a spasm at all. Your muscles basically ‘sing’ like plucking a guitar string, if that makes sense. And it is such a healing feeling. You just let it happen. And I like the addition – flight, fright or freeze! Indeed, it is what happens to a lot of people. Be well.
I love pan-fried breads – so easy and utterly delicious! With yogurt and cumin, this must be good!
I thought they were 🙂
