Or, do you make your own? I'm thinking of making my own but wondering which brands you all buy :)

Normally I buy Mrs Bairds 100% Whole Wheat and sometimes Nature's Own 100% Whole Wheat. I have made my own whole wheat rolls but I had to add some white flour to those so I prefer the store brand bread.

We buy Sara Lee 100% Whole Wheat. Heart Healthy I think it says on package. I haven't touched bread in almost 3wks but this is what we normally buy. We like the whole wheat bread around my house.

We are weird but my husband religiously makes 2 loaves every week. We have a grain mill and he grinds from hard red wheat. So I KNOW that our bread is 100% whole wheat. :) I don't get to have any for a week yet though.

Brand names are different in Canada. I buy Dempster's 100% Whole Wheat with Flax.
The in-store bakery in town makes 100% whole wheat hot dog and hamburger rolls and also stocks 100% whole wheat pitas and tortillas.

Geekgirl, would you mind sharing the recipe your dh uses?

He uses a bunch of different recipes in Laurel's Bread Book. It is a classic and you can find it at any bookstore or There is a lot of great information about bread in general in it. Also the grain mill we have is called the Whisper Mill and it's made by a company in Australia and only cost $199. Well well worth it to know that what you are getting is in fact 100% whole wheat. We also use it to grind corn for corn bread (but not anymore :(), and he has used it for rye too.
