I don't personally find wheat to be bad, but you'll get varying answers.
The controversy with regard to regular versus sprouted grean is phytates, also called phytic acid. Some say that phytates are an anti-nutrient compound, meaning you don't absorb calcium, magnesium, copper, iron and zinc in the intestinal tract. Other ecidence suggests that phytaste actually HELPS prevent cancer in the colon.
When you soak and sprout grains, you increase vit a and vit c, though you lose some protein. They're also generally more tolerated by those who have a gluten intolerence.
Personally, I think some sprouted grain is fine, but I won't go to the work of making it (it takes several days), though once in a while I enjoy that process. Otherwise, I just make our bread a couple of times a week.
And I totally see why you'd be "addicted" to Ezekiel bread, my kids think it's cake!
