Review: Ezekiel Bread

I’d like to repeat again, that change does not happen over night, and that health is a lifelong process. I am by no means a perfect eater, and I hope no one ever thinks I am. I’m not. I also have a few items I have yet to turn over to the Healthy Food Gods. One of these things was bread.  I have been using (for the last year) Sara Lee 45 Calorie Delightful Wheat Bread this is leftover from my Weight Watchers days where this bread rolled in at a mere 1 point for two slices! It’s hard to get better than that. Also its SUPER soft, which I love in a bread. I felt pretty bad about it, I means it’s a great bread, but it contains a few to many “un-clean” ingredients. Way more than 10 (they say you should avoid eating foods that have more than 10 ingredients, and any ingredients you can’t pronounce) so it had to go.

We were at Sunflower Market last week and found Ezekiel Bread. At first I was confused by the Holy Scripture, but then read this:

Inspired by the Holy Scripture verse Ezekiel 4:9., “Take also unto thee Wheat, and Barley, and beans, and lentils, and millet, and Spelt, and put them in one vessel, and make bread of it…”

We picked up the

Organic Sprouted 100% Whole Grain Flourless Bread

The ingredients are amazing too:

INGREDIENTS: Organic Sprouted Whole Wheat, Filtered Water, Organic Malted Barley, Organic Sprouted Whole Millet, Organic Sprouted Whole Barley, Organic Sprouted Whole Lentils, Organic Sprouted Whole Soybeans, Organic Sprouted Whole Spelt, Fresh Yeast, Sea Salt.

The nutritional information is even better than I thought it would be.

For one slice:

-80 Calories

-0.5 grams of fat

-3 grams of fiber

-4 grams of protein.

Not bad for something that is 100% clean, and Vegan.

So of course all of that is good, but how about taste? I was a little nervous because it’s not a soft bread. It’s very dense and…hearty.  To start off with Mr. Gaunt made me a grilled cheese and turkey sandwich on our George Foreman. It was actually really good! I was surprised. I’ve tried other healthy breads before and have always found them too sweet. I don’t like sweet breads, I think they are gross. This bread isn’t sweet at all, perfect bread flavor. Obviously when grilled its crispy, so the soft thing doesn’t make much of a difference.

Next we tried a regular old cold turkey sandwich. At first I thought, yup too dense and hard, not gonna like it, but the more I at it, the more I loved it. It has a nice nutty flavor, and its so filling. I just felt like I was eating good healthy filling foods. Not to mention I have recently found a love for Grey Poupon, and that is delicious on it!

So overall I am VERY pleased with this bread. We will be sticking with it, and I will try more recipes with it: French Toast, Bread Crumbs, egg sandwiches, etc. If you have tried it, Id love to hear your opinions too.

A Fresh Start


Well first off I would like to give a hugely fantasticly excited warm welcome to….SEPTEMBER! Me and September go waaaay back, in fact September was the first month that I ever got to see in person, September 12th to be exact. And September has always just been a good exciting month of changes! Back in the day September was a new school year, homecomings, football games, reconnecting with friends. As Ive gotten older September has consistently been the month I move to a new place, sign a new lease, start fresh.

This year September brings less change than usually. Mr. Gaunt and I will be renewing our lease in our current place (please note in the 6 years I have lived away from home, I have NEVER lived in a place longer than a year) because its a pretty sweet pad and we feel like the only upgrade we would do would be buying a house, and that may be awhile. 


I also will be turning 24 on the 12th. This is exciting because 24 was the first year I was declaring “mid twenties” (24-26) and because come on people I LOVE BIRTHDAYS! Its a smidge sad this year that I will be forced to work (raise your hand if you think I should call out sick?) because I would love nothing more than to bake these Pumpkin Cupcakes with Maple Frosting! and wear a cute dress and spend the day painting pottery with Mr. Gaunt (I know this would be torture for most men, but he really does like it). Birthdays are fun and beautiful and special and only come once a year and they are just yours…sigh…I ❤ BIRTHDAYS. 

September also means a change in the weather, and for those of you who dont know I LOVE FALL! I love fall the most! And I love HOT HOT summer the least. So I am sooooo looking forward to fall where I can wear sweaters and scarves and flip flops (seriously) and we can go get pumpkins and do a haunted corn maze and bake galore! I get a little excited on this topic. So yeah fall and me are friends.

This year is also pretty sweet because I weigh almost 45 lbs less than I did a year ago. GOOD FREAKING JOB TO ME! That my friend is excellent! Im also planning my first wedding to be put on this weekend. This will be fun and crazy and scary and stressfull. Im going to take a million pictures for you all to see! It will be a fun weekend. 

Ok now Im off to make lunch (post to come) and to finish some wedding shopping before work. Oh and no weigh in this week, it just didn’t fit into the schedule, come next week though and Ill get some real numbers. XOXO
