Ezekial Bread Alternative?

Quote  |  Reply

I tried Ezekial bread after reading about it here and absolutely loved it!  Very tasty and great nutrition.  However, at over $5/loaf, I'm not going to be buying it regularly.  Anyone have suggestions for a less spendy alternative (and preferably one that's less than 100 cals a slice, since some wheat breads are rather high)

What's your favorite whole grain bread?

Any wholegrain, wholemeal, granary-type loaf is going to be just as good nutritionally as Ezekiel.  You could always invest in a bread-machine if you wanted to make your own version.... I have one and my loaves include all sorts of goodies like sun-dried tomatoes, olives and pumpkin seeds.   And if you bought unsliced bread you could decide whether to have thin 70 cal slices or thicker 120 cal slices...

The Eat Clean Diet Cookbook by Tosca Reno has a recipe to make your own Ezekial bread.

If you're near a Trader Joe's they have a knockoff sprouted wheat bread similar to Ezekiel's.

Many local groceries in MA carry Oat Bran Pita Bread. The 4 inch pockets are 45 calories and the 6 inch are 60 calories. Very filling due to high fiber, and taste great. I make them into roll ups or pockets or just with melted cheese and a veg in the middle in the toaster oven.

I like the AlpineValley Organic Bread Multi Grain with Omega-3 it is sold in local Costco. Bread is delicous, 70 cal per slice, 5 grams of protein, 1g of fat and 15 grams of carbohydrate with 3 grams of fiber. Did I mention it tastes great, specialy toasted? I also love dinner rolls made by the same company.

gijane~ will you be putting any of these homemade bread recipes online, or are they in a secret vault to which only you have the combination? Wink

My favorite is Natural Ovens' Right Wheat.  50 cal and 2.5g fiber per slice.
