Question Which breads do you eat?

I'm searching for a 100% whole grain bread without sugar or high fructose corn sweeteners. In the grocery store, I read labels till I go crazy trying to find a healthy bread. Usually I eat it toasted, with raw almond butter - so the heartier the bread the better.

My attempts at baking have been less than successful, to say the least

So, I'd appreciate any suggestions for what brands of bread you eat?

Thanks!

I use orowheat- they say they don't use any high fructose corn syrup- and I like their whole grain breads

I love the sandwhich thins also! They are YUMMY I toast them up a bit- one of my favorite things to use when I make a sandwich

Thanks, especially for posting ingredients! I do eat the Arnold Whole Wheat Thin Sandwich Rounds. They're really good : ) We have a Whole Food Market about 40 miles from here - maybe I can find the Ezekiel and orowheat breads there. That Sprouted Grain sounds incredibly yummy - and healthy.

Smile Julian Bakery - Smart Carb

I am a big fan of Julian Bakery products. I live near a retail distributor, but they often have online sales with free/low shipping costs. My favorite of theirs is SmartCarb #1:

Ingredients:

Whole grains, bean, seeds of *kamut®, *spelt, *wheat, *rye, *millet, lentils, eggs, soy protein, flax, sesame, *quinoa, *amaranth, wheat gluten, 7 grain flakes, oat bran, sea salt & yeast.

119 calories per slice, but with 12 (yes 12!) grams each of fiber and protein.

Thanks! Those sound yummy : ) It will be so good to have a variety.

I didn't know any bread had 12 grams of protien and fiber!

A lot of the Franz breads don't have HFCS in it. Local to me is Wheat Montana and they make wonderful breads!

I bake all of our bread in a bread machine which makes it pretty easy...And gives me a lot of chance to vary ingredients with the seasons and our needs.

I tried this one for the first time today. It was really delicious! I was a little surprised how much I really liked it. The flavor of the bread was just so healthy and yummy. It's pretty dense but very tasty!

I only eat sprouted grain breads except for the rare instance when I have sourdough (I don't buy it but will eat it with others).

Trader Joe's has their own label but there is also Ezekiel and another company or 2 that makes sprouted grain breads.

Vermont Bread Company has great breads! They have a regular line and also an organic line. Both are all natural, no artificial ingredients or preservatives.

(they have sprouted breads too)

I find them in my regular grocery stores.
