  • Is ezekial bread a better choice than most?

    I know I should ideally not be eating any grains but is ezekial bread at least less evil than other breads? Does it have less effect on insulin?

    Hrm so it's partly legumes, eh? Legumes contain a different kind of starch than grains that absorbs more slowly and they also have more fiber so yes I do think it would be better than plain 'ol wheat.

    Is it healthy? Nope. Munch at thy own peril.

      Grains really are addictive. It is funny to see people asking if it's okay to eat them on this forum.

        No, quit it altogether. I cant believe you still eating it while you know that's not good for your body.

          All of the grains are sprouted too, are they not? Wouldn't that put them halfway between a grain and a green?

            It's still bread. Ditch it.

              It's so hard for some people to give up grains! I didn't have a choice (celiac) but I definitely had my struggles with sugar.

              You can do it OP! Kick the grains, and start reprogramming! Soon bacon will feel like comfort food!

                I know grains are a bear to give up. Go whole hog and don't look back. Eventually you'll see and taste them as the bland filler they are.

                  Humans thousands of years ago knew all these seeds make you sick. That's why they are all sprouted. Calling this bread is misleading I think.

                  The list of essential amino acids and minerals is impressive for a bite for bite food source.

                  If you like it eat it.

                  I think it taste like butt...

                    Oh and not pork butt.

                    That is delicious!

                      My mister is not primal so this is the bread I get for him. I'd be very happy if he didn't eat any bread at all. Ezeikel is probably slightly less worse than the HFCS and preservatives-laden Pepperidge Farm Multi grain that he otherwise would eat. In addition to the sprouted grains they also use gluten in Ezekiel, so not really sure if it's any better at all. Check out the recent articles on Dr.William Davis' Heart Scan Blog, he writes about the original strains of wheat einkorn and emmer. Maybe bread made out of these 2 strains of wheat may not be as bad as modern bread.

                        Yeah, that's a tough one. My mister makes his own bread (we have a bread machine, affectionately known as the Bread Bot). At least I know he's not putting HFCS or weird dough conditioners in it.

                          Haha questions about breads, energy drinks......this forum is crazy today! I know some people are diffferent yada yada but grains are toxic. Just like smoking is toxic. If I were trying to give up.smoking, I don't think having a light ciggie here and there would do me any good, no? Just my take.

                            Sprouting may be an improvement but is an improvement upon failure is still failure, just to a lesser degree. What's 0 x 10? What's fail divided by 2? Half as many toxins and antinutrients is still a lot more than I'm comfortable with.

                            And wtf is with the reverence for how "traditional peoples" ate? All post agricultural societies are weak and sickly compared with those eating the original human diet. Fuck 5000BC, fuck biblical times, give me the goddamn paleolithic era.

                            Not everyone can give up grains and if you just can't do it, prepare them the best you can but it's not health food.

                              Was listening to Rami Nagel talk about tooth decay on UGW radio last night.

                              http://www.blogtalkradio.com/undergr...ith-rami-nagel

                              The discussion on how Weston Price found that certain vitamin and mineral rich food sources re-mineralized cavities and cured tooth decay. Price found that cultures who ate raw milk dairy or organ meats (liver, kidneys, heart, bone marrow) had the best immunity to tooth decay. But he also found that those who routinely consumed phytates (found in nuts, grains and legumes) had worse tooth decay, due to the ability of phytates to disrupt vitamin and mineral absorption. To this end, Rami doesn't recommend eating grains, but if you are going to, soaking or sprouting only partially neutralizes the phytates - fermentation however does a complete job. He suggested sourdough (fermented bread) may be the best way to consume it, and grains with the bran partially milled off may be better than whole grains. Kind of going to vary on the individual, the more refined grains are going to be worse for insulin and body fat, but the decrease in vitamin and mineral absorption may be a more serious problem.

                              It was also interesting when they discuss what Price found in the remote Swiss communities. While they consumed large amounts of bread, their health was not too bad (they still had much higher rates of tooth decay, but still far, far better than modern folk on a SAD diet). But they did revere and have special ceremonies revolving around the "June butter". In June when the cows go higher in the mountains and graze on the fresh greens, their milk becomes super-concentrated in vitamins and minerals. They would take this dairy and make butter out of it, and this butter would confer protection from cavities to the Swiss.
