Sprouted Whole Grain Breads

Hello Kerri,

I was wondering what is your opinon about Sprouted Whole Grain Breads?

Some of these breads seem to have gluten, some do not.

Ezekiel bread is supposed to be a good source of protein and has no flour. But I am not sure if it is a healthy option.

If you do not know them, here is a link where you can see a lot of them:

Are they a healthy option?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Charlie,

I think that if you use the gluten free brands in moderation, that could be a good option for the times that you feel you just GOTTA have some bread! I'm 'generally' not a big fan of grains and think that most people should stay away from them, at least until they've done a few months off of grains to see how it effects them.

Having said that, once you know how grains effect you, then soaked and sprouted grains is a good way to eat grains if you wish to return to them. Soaked and sprouted takes away a lot of the 'bad' antinutrients and coatings that cause gut inflammation and irritation.

So, use in moderation and just listen to your body when you start adding them in, but I don't think that they are necessarily a bad choice, and can be fine to good for you in moderation.

Here's some more info on why soaking/sprouting/fermenting grains are superior to eating 'fresh' grains:

Soaking Grains

ONe of my favorite grain recipes is a fermented lentil/rice pancake that is super easy and tasty. It's tart, rather than sweet, so it's more of a 'savory' pancake rather than a sweet pancake. We use it as a 'base' for main courses, for instance, sort of in place of noodles or rice. You could even cut it up into pieces and treat them sort of like firm noodles. Yummy.

Lentil Pancakes (dosas)

You don't need the special container. we just use a big jar and cover it with a cloth. Be sure to leave the jar only half full or it will gush out the top! It sounds hard, but it's super easy.
