You can find it in the frozen bread section of most grocery stores (but unfortunately not WalMart). Not only is it much better for you than most breads made with processed flour, at 80 calories a slice it's less calories than most! Especially good as toast; several kinds available.
I keep mine in the freezer since it tends to mold much faster. I take out a couple of slices to thaw for breakfast the night before, or even just let the toaster do the thawing.

When I switched from white bread to whole grain bread I started experiencing upset stomachs. But when I tried sprouted whole grain bread instead, my stomach did not object. And another benefit is a great nutty flavor and hearty texture. I don't eat any other kind of bread now.
Try sprouted whole grain bread with a nut spread and banana slices for a filling and delicious treat!
There are 60 calories in 1 serving of Trader Joe's Sprouted Rye Bread and 7 carbs per slice. Claims are made that sprouted grain bread does not cause as high or fast of a blood sugar rise as regular bread, but always test to make sure. A good rule is to avoid breads where one of the first five ingredients is sugar, honey, molasses or fructose.
