Either way, I've got a new favorite food. And it's a carbohydrate. And...it's bread! One of my all-time favorite things in this world :)
I had seen it before when grocery shopping and someone has recommended I had tried it awhile back. Like with most things, I quickly forget since I'm easily distracted by the kids - so most of my "conversation information retention" is somewhat low these days.
However, I happily remembered the other day while I was doing the grocery shopping - and boy, am I glad I did! It's by a company called Food For Life and it's their Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Grain Bread:

And I must admit - they are correct in the taste is quite flavorful. Even though it comes frozen, it tastes wonderfully fresh and is delicious toasted as well.
The best part is that it is SO healthy and good for you with proteins, real "whole grains", amino acids and it's flourless which is great for those looking for long-burning carbs and low on the glycemic index.
And, you'll notice you can pronounce everything in the ingredient list - no preservatives or weird chemical sounding names. This is crucial and important on eating clean or clean diets - which I plan to post more on soon!
So, check out their web site and as you'll find they have a wide range of breads, muffins, gluten-free products and more.
Do you already use this brand of bread? Do you think you'll try it?
Either way, let me know!
