I eat Ezekiel bread but only because my local food co-op uses it to make sandwiches. I certainly wouldn't eat it for flavor because it is pretty lacking in my opinion. Healthy? Yes, but I wouldn't go out of my way for it.

I'll have to try the Cinnamon Raisin. And maybe I'll complain to the Store Manager at Safeway it's tastes old. It's a big enough chain they should be on top of frozen products.

There are several different varieties including a cinnamon raisin that I think tastes quite good. Perhaps the loaf(s) you got had been in the freezer a while. Where I buy mine the brand has its own refrigerator case and the store sells a lot of it, so it is impossible to buy an old loaf. However, I will concede that it is not for everyone, and takes some getting used to. And no store-bought bread is going to taste as good as something fresh from the oven or the bakery.

I eat Ezekiel bread. It is made different than other bread. The grains in Ezekiel bread are sprouted before they are turned into flour. This changes the chemical composition of the grains. by reducing their sugar content and boosting the protein content. It also makes the grain more alkaline forming. Ezekiel bread is minimally processed and has no preservatives. You can get it in the freezer section of many grocery stores or at natural food stores. It is Made by Food For Life. It is one of the few low glycemic breads with a glycemic index of only 35. It takes a little getting used to if you are accustomed to eating breads like Sara Lee or Nature's Pride because the grains in Ezekiel bread are ground courser and it is chewier. If a person is trying it for the first time, I would recommend that you toast it.

If you do a google search " knead less sourdough bread" it was one of the best breads I have ever made.

hi again... i got 5 private emails from this thread about making bread so i thought maybe this would help others...
this is a site i often refer people to
http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/b
read
it is a great resource for basic to advanced bread making, both bread machine and by hand
bread making.
by hand is my preferred method. it is not hard, promise! play around with flours, grains, add in seeds and flavors.
i'm sure i have over and under kneaded dough many times, but don't worry... fresh out of the oven is wonderful!!!!
healthy wishes to all! xx

Danielle,

I've heard of Ezekiel bread. Everyone recommends it, but I can never find it in the local stores.

I am interested in making my own bread. We use to buy whole wheat/whole grain bread for everyday use and things like rye and cinnamon raisin occasionally, but now, after cutting out processed food, I'm also looking for bread recipes to try.
I'm mostly worried about over kneading and things like that (since I've heard that it can be an issue).

(Never made bread in my life) ;)
Julie

i do not know the brands you mentioned as i live in europe (i'm an american expat) i have been making my own whole grain bread for many years, about 20.
i make all the bread for my family, but have given up pretty much eating flour for the last 3 months. i love bread but i think it doesn't love me very much. i feel a lot better since losing my weight, exercising, portion control, cutting out sugar and flour. not sure if it was just 1 thing or all combined. guessing all combined.
however if you are wondering if making bread is easy,.. it is a labor of love. and if it's healthy over store bought... i believe in making what you can at home and controlling the ingredients leads to healthier food!
happy to help you with bread questions if i can :)
xx have a healthy day! xx

Hey Everyone,

I am not a huge bread person but we always have some in the house. I was just wondering what are some good ones? I usually go Dempsters Whole Wheat Rye, or Ancient Grains, or Flax. I hear a lot about Eziekel bread - is that just a brand or is it named after the way it's made?

Does anyone make their own bread at home?
