You’ve probably heard that eating bread is not good. Of course white bread made with processed bleached flour seems to be the biggest culprit but if you think eating wheat bread is the savings grace, your wrong. It would seem the harmful effects of wheat have increased quite a bit in the past few years and since wheat is a large part of most people’s diets, many are looking for healthy alternatives.
All things considered there is a bread that gives you a healthy option. In fact is is considered the healthiest bread you can eat. It, my friends, is know as Ezekiel Bread.
How is it made? Well for it’s origins you can look to The Bible.
Ezekiel 4:9: “Take wheat and barley, beans and lentils, millet and spelt; put them in a storage jar and use them to make bread for yourself.”
Ezekiel bread is different for several reasons.
While most breads contain added sugar, Ezekiel bread contains none. It is also made from organic, sprouted whole grains. The sprouting process changes the nutrient composition of the grains significantly.
In contrast to most commercial breads, which consist primarily of refined wheat or pulverized whole wheat, Ezekiel bread contains several different types of grains and legumes:
4 types of cereal grains: Wheat, Millet, Barley and Spelt.
2 types of legumes: Soybeans and Lentils.
All the grains and all the legumes are organically grown and allowed to sprout before they are processed, mixed together and baked to produce the final product.
It’s important to point out that wheat, barley and spelt, All, contain gluten.
This being the case Ezekiel bread is out of the question for people with Celiac Disease or Gluten sensitivity.
Ezekiel bread is available in many supermarkets and health food stores. You can also find a way to make your own if you look for “Ezekiel bread recipe” on Google.
Happy, Healthy Eating.
