A Doughy Debate: What’s the Best Bread?
Tiny Tummy Tips, Issue #038 -- It's time to unravel the mystery of the loaf!
In this issue:
1) What’s the Best Bread?
2) What About Carb Swaps?
Unveiling the Best BreadAs the school bells ring and the lunchboxes make a triumphant return, one burning question sizzles through the air: “What’s the best bread?!”
Let's dive right into the heart of the doughy debate!
In my professional opinion, …. If you’re going to eat bread…
No, it’s not low carb or keto. Gasp! It’s made from freshly sprouted, organically grown grains.
Sprouted grains are easier to digest than regular grains and are higher in nutrients like folate, iron, zinc, and magnesium.
Ezekiel 4:9® is made from wheat, lentils, millet, barley, soy, and spelt. When these six musketeers of the culinary world unite in sprouted splendor, magic unfolds…
A complete protein is created that contains all 9 essential amino acids!
Translation, you ask?
A single slice of Ezekiel 4:9® boasts 5 grams of COMPLETE, HIGH-QUALITY protein! That's a mic drop moment, nearly matching the protein prowess of one egg which sports 6 grams of protein.
Per serving (1 slice): 80 calories, 0.5 g fat (0 g sat), 15 g carbs, 3 g fiber, 0 g sugars, 5 g protein, 75 mg sodium.
But What About the Carb Count?No reason to fear the carb count!
Just because something's rocking a higher carb count doesn't mean it's the carbocalypse. And oh boy, don't even get me started on the "fewer carbs equal health nirvana" myth. It’s not that simple!
Ezekiel 4:9® bread is high fiber, vegan, diabetic friendly, non GMO, flourless, and a source of complete protein. Not too shabby!
P.S. Don’t forget to stack your slices with protein, fat, and fiber:
Turkey + hummus + baby spinach for example…
Scrambled egg and/or smoked salmon + avocado + tomato
Ezekiel 4:9® is particularly good toasted btw! The transformation from simple slice to golden, crispy masterpiece is a game-changer. ;)
Fun Fact About the NameEver wondered what's in a name?
Here’s a tidbit for you…The name Ezekiel 4:9® Sprouted Grain Bread draws its inspiration straight from the pages of the Holy Scriptures.
It’s like a culinary rendezvous with history!
The verse that sparked this genius idea goes something like, "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..." Yes, you guessed it – Ezekiel 4:9.
So next time you bite into that delicious slice, remember, it's not just bread; it's a harmonious blend of tradition and taste, a reminder of the connection between ancient wisdom and modern indulgence.
