Dave's is awesome bread!

I've returned, however, to Ezekiel 4:9 cinnamon raisin. The smaller slices save me 30 calories each.

If you are lucky enough to have a store that carries Dave's Breads, they are just delicious. My favorite is Dave's Powerseed Bread.

WOW...This article prompted me to check my freezer and begin thinking about a bread machine! As others have stated,due to the cost and a limited income, our bread usualy goes from freezer to toaster. out of 5 partly used loaves, although healthier than white, there was only one that listed whole wheat first.

I wish Sparkpeople would include all those recommended breads in the food lists so we can easily journal them!

My two favorites made the list. You can find this one in the freezer section *Food for Life: Ezekiel 4:9 Organic Sprouted 100% Whole Grain Flourless Bread Low Sodium and *Rudi's Organic. Most important is keeping your sodium low.

I shop at Wegman's... I hope they have one of these!

*AMBER512 -- What brand of bread do you have that only have 40 cals/slice? Sounds like a better option than any that this gave us!!

I like my 100% whole wheat, 40 calorie per slice bread.

I think it's funny it says to eat bread that has 100 calories or less per slice, and then in their list of breads to eat is a kind that is 120 calories per slice. That's insane!

Another great bread is Milton's Whole Grain Plus. It has 24g of whole grain per slice, 90 calories, .5g fat, 16g carbs, 5g fiber, 4g protein and 125g sodium. The slices are BIG too. It is very yummy, my kids love it!!

I've always liked whole wheat bread, but then there were so many and some contain high F corn syrup. So, I just like my Alpine bread made with flax.

I was wondering where the sodium was coming from in my diet. I'm hardly ever use salt but look at the salt in these breads. I saw a bread made with sea salt..but that's another topic.

I liked this atrticle. Yes bread is confusing for me.
I look for how much fiber, no soy or very little soy. No seeded topping (sticks to back of throat) so I look for a sprinkle of grain on the outter crust, and fiber it has to have fiber.
But after reading this...Next month for my breads I know what to look for. Thanks

Just wanted to add that sourdough bakeries are also a very good choice, if you're looking into buying healthier bread. The one where I shop makes all their bread through natural fermentation using traditional sourdough methods. There are no yeast, preservatives or salt added! You can still buy your "white" bread for the kids, but they also have great rye and whole grain breads. Be careful though as some bakeries advertise with being sourdough bakeries, but in reality still use yeast for fermentation and just add a bit of sourdough. You can usually tell when you try the bread. Real sourdough bread is very flavorsome and tastes great.
