I posted over in the whole foods section as well, but can anyone tell me the benefit of eating the sprouted grain/live bread? I'm very interested! I tried a piece yesterday and I really liked it!

Ezekiel 4:9 (http://www.foodforlife.com/product-catalog/ezekiel-49/breads/120C6-organic-sprouted-whole-grain-flourless-bread)

"Wheat, and Barley, and beans, and lentils, and millet, and Spelt, and put them in one vessel, and make bread of it..."Ez 4:9 We discovered when these six grains and legumes are sprouted and combined, an amazing thing happens. A complete protein is created that closely parallels the protein found in milk and eggs. In fact, the protein quality is so high, that it is 84.3% as efficient as the highest recognized source of protein, containing all 9 essential amino acids. There are 18 amino acids present in this unique bread - from all vegetable sources - naturally balanced in nature."

I eat the cinnamon raisin one with 1-2 tablespoons of nut butter for breakfast, it's good! I just figured all the things in it were good and better than other breads, never really thought about the benefits.

I eat this bread. I try not to eat regular wheat breads. My mother-in-law is allergic to wheat so she eats this bread whenever she has a craving for such a thing. She also uses it as a bun for burgers and such. :)

They make buns too! Link (http://foodforlife.com/product-catalog/sprouted-grain/buns)

I love the pitas.

My WW leader talks about this bread all the time, so the last time I was at the grocery store I decided to check it out...

...and discovered that it was $7 a loaf. Yeah, no thanks. I don't care *what's* in it, there is no way I'm paying that kind of money for a loaf of bread. Wow.

It's too bad, too, because I would like to try it...but honestly, that is just ridiculous, and it only reinforces the fact that corporations will totally overcharge for foods they KNOW people will buy just because they think they're a healthier option. To be completely honest, I always give the side-eye to products like this, because the inflated price always makes me question whether said product is just a way for companies to make more money, rather than encourage better health in people.

Well the price probably is inflated, but so are all food products in the western world. Think of your 3 dollar whole wheat bread, it doesn't have much in it and cost little to manufacture, I'm sure the cost is equally inflated.

I don't eat a lot of bread, but I love peanut butter and toast so I buy a loaf of Ezekiel and stick it in my freezer and it lasts me a month.

Snoofie - The price in our local store is $5. So check around. Now I know that is expensive, but nasty bread made of garbage is $2.50 per loaf on sale, and good quality bread of any kind starts at $4 where I live. I also keep it in the freezer and I'm the only one who eats it in my house, so I think it's worth it. So... shop around.

I do think food is getting very expensive, but in many parts of the world, people do not have the quality of life we have and they spend a whole's day pay just to feed their family.

There are costs to manufacture, store and ship products - employees have to be paid, etc. So the ingredients in making a loaf of bread are only a fraction of the cost - don't get me wrong, I think plenty of it seems overpriced too. I shop sales, and make most of our food.

I'm grateful to be here. We have options that most people only dream about.

At some point I may be willing to pay that price for a loaf of bread. I really would like to try it. Right now, though, I'm still trying to straighten things out after being out of work for a year and a half, so I can't justify the expense. At the moment I'm making my own bread because it's cheaper than buying ANY at the store.

$7 is so expensive. I think it is $3.99 at the Trader Joe's where I shop.

Snoofie: You are on the right track! If you search online for recipes, you should be able to find some for Ezekiel bread - or a close facsimile. Have fun with your baking! I love it - very therapeutic, and yummy!

This bread is amazingly good and good for you. It costs less than $3.00 a loaf here in NC Texas at the health food store.

I wonder if the manufacturer could do anything about the price in Nflnd?
It freezes very well. In fact, it sold frozen here. I keep it in the freezer, taking out a few slices at a time, keeping them in the 'fridge until I use them.

But, trying to make your own could be fun.

Snoofie, you won't find it much cheaper in Newfoundland. I know I live there, too. Have you ever tried to make it? It might not be much cheaper by the time you buy the ingredients.

I can't believe the grocery store I used to get ezekiel bread from has stopped carrying it :( I guess I was the only one buying it.

after a little searching I found another store that carries Ezekiel bread.. I have to go a little out of my way to get to it, so I buy a few loaves at a time now. But I'm happy to have it again, a slice of this bread with some almond butter is my go-to breakfast

today I tried something new and made croutons with it. I love croutons on my salads, it just seems to make a salad more filling...but I've been wanting something a little healthier and figured adding a slice of ezekiel bread could make a healthy carb with my veggie salads.

I just sliced a couple of slices into cubes, drizzled with a little olive oil (I'll make sure to measure next time), sprinkled on some black pepper and garlic powder then toasted/baked it in the toaster oven for for about 15 minutes, stirring it around every few minutes to make sure it didn't burn. happy to say they came out really good. I ate a couple plain and they could pass for a snack on their own. I'll have to experiment with seasonings now I know I can make them.
