Bread is an extremely hot topic that has been talked about as the root of various health problems for a numerous amount of years. Overall, bread gets a bad rap because it is very high in carbs and can spike sugar levels. But let’s face the facts, I’m not giving up bread and neither are you. For the people who can’t live without it, I have two words: Ezekiel bread.
This marvelous gem is made of sprouted whole grains, legumes that are organically grown, and irresistible seeds. As if Ezekiel bread didn’t sound incredible enough already, I’m going to give you 5 reasons why you should add it to your eating routine.
It is a complete form of protein
Ezekiel bread contains 18 amino acids, which are the building blocks of proteins. To all my ladies workin’ on their fitness, ditch the basic protein shake fad and come over to the dark side. In no time, you will have a body like Beyoncé.
It is a high source of dietary fiber
The sprouted whole grains and legumes in Ezekiel Bread are high in fiber content, which help with digestion and make you feel full. And no, I don’t mean full off drinking a 6 pack of bud light. Full in a healthy feel good type of way that leaves you energized throughout your day.
It has no added sugar and has less gluten than normal bread
If you’re trying to cut back on gluten and your sugar intake (but still looooooove bread), switching to Ezekiel is a great option for you.
Jesus would approve
The breads name is inspired by the bible verse Ezekiel 4:9, which says, “Take also unto thee wheat, and barley, and beans, and lentils and millet, and spelt and put them in one vessel…” Who wouldn’t want to eat bread that Jesus approves of?
There are no artificial ingredients
That’s right health nuts, there are no preservatives or shortenings in this savory bread. No need to shop at whole foods ever again once you’ve found this gem of a bread.
If you’re looking for a place to find this miracle bread, check out the frozen section of any of your local supermarkets like Publix or Trader Joe’s. And if you are into baking, you can even find ways to make a healthy homemade recipe.
