    <3 u cld try searching your local health food store or supermarket for a very thin, flat bread, no yeast/preservatives is tricky; preferably spelt, oat rice or rye, but it's easier to find a wheat one (i used an organic wheat one for my family), mountain bread is the best natural variety we hv here xxx

    oh Val,on the Mountain Bread website there is a recipe book;you should make the bread yourself! it’s always better to make it yourself,buying pre packaged (and shipped) foods is not as organic as make it yourself! :-)
