My local organic grocer carries Vermont bread but I haven't seen any sprouted varieties! I keep looking and hoping as I like to try different ones, especially if they are cheaper.

I tried Trader Joes sprouted whole wheat bread today. Oh my gosh!! It's delicious. Now my only problem will be not eating too much of it

That Julian Bakery bread sounds great!

My rule-of-thumb for bread is to look at the ingredients list and make sure no HFCS is in it, and then make sure that for every 15 grams of carbs, it has 2 or more grams of fiber.

I don't eat a lot of store-made bread. I have a bread machine, and I find the best way to do it is to use it for preparing the dough, but right before it starts to cook, pull the dough out and put it in a regular bread pan and bake it in the oven.

I like to bake my own. Ingredients: white whole wheat flour (a softer grain, gives better texture without losing the nutritional benefits), yeast, salt, agave, oil, water. The only negative side to baking your own is that it can go stale very quickly. I slice it and freeze it in two slice packs and just bring it out when I want a sandwich. I don't like having bread available all the time anyway.

I love Sami's Bakery products. You can order online or find them in many grocery stores (regular and health). I love their lavash and their millet and flax bread. Organic Millet Flour, Brown Rice Flour, Water, Aluminum Free Baking Powder, Sea Salt, Organic Grounded Flax Seed, Cultured Brown Rice Flour, Ascorbic acid

I used to adore French Meadow Bakery products, especially their hemp bread but they recently changed the formulas on many of their products and they seem more just like normal whole wheat bread vs hemp bread. But, they are still good compared to most breads.

i buy bread from my local bakery they both bake with whole, natural ingredients!). i have bought the ezekiel breads and rudy's bread in the past and they are both pretty good. if anyone lives in the pacific northwest, i HIGHLY recommend dave's killer bread - it's the best sandwich bread EVER.

Natures Own is the only bread we buy for our family because it doesn't have HFCS

Do you know if this can be frozen and then thawed? It is pretty far to the closest place that carries this bread and I would love to buy more than one loaf at a time to save on gas. If it can be frozen that would work, but if that would totally kill the nutritional value then I will just have to make due with grocery store breads. Does anyone know if it can be frozen?

Yes, all of the ezekiel breads can be frozen! At the store I work at, they are shipped to us frozen and stored in our freezer.

Thank you, Thank you! That definitely makes the drive there worth it! Luckily we have an deep freeze in the garage, so I can buy in bulk to save money.

I always freeze bread and then keep it refrigerated. It stays fresher longer that way.

Also, if you have a Trader Joe's near you, they have breads similar to Ezekiel which may be cheaper, it depends. One store I know sells Ezekiel breads for $3/loaf while other places sell it for $5/loaf

I have been baking alot of bread this winter using a no-knead recipe that's all over the net and tweaking it with whole wheat flour and oatmeal instead of all white flour. Comes out great ,but at about 75 calories an ounce, it is hard to make a sandwich without blowing alot of calories. Why do the slices of commercial bread so much lower ? Can eanyone venture a guess ?

Marigrace, is your bread coming out a lot denser? Supermarket breads are really airy, and the Ezekiel bread is sliced very thin.
