I've made a discovery - well, actually Jamie read about it and then told me - about a bread that I just have to rave about for a little bit. In my efforts to eat more protein and vegetables, good carbs and less refined sugar and flour, I've been wondering just how I can get some healthy carbs in my food plan other than oatmeal and beans. Nothing against oatmeal and beans, but I'm about sick of oatmeal for breakfast every day - as much as I do like it - and I need an alternative now and then. And without some type of carbs inside me, I just feel too hungry and lightheaded throughout the day.
So, Jamie learned of a flourless bread (not gluten-free, though, because it does contain wheat) called Ezekiel Bread and I hunted it down at our local Sprouts Farmer's Market. Based on the verse from Ezekiel 4:9, it's a bread baked from wheat, barley, beans, lentils, millet and spelt, then rolled in flax seeds, and it is a great source of protein and fiber. It helps that it tastes great, too, and is a dense, nutty and hearty bread that is fantastic toasted and spread with a little peanut butter.
They also make a cinnamon raisin English muffin that I just love, and has become my new favorite snack, spread with raw almond butter, a drizzle of local honey, and a tiny sprinkling of coarse Kosher salt. It's so yummy!
