    The word bread.... Rye is still a grain and rye bread is still mostly wheat flour. Not even a snowball's chance of being primal.

    A good rye doesn't have any wheat at all--my wife is a professional baker (lol, yes, paleo nightmare), and I've watched her prepare it.

    But whether or not the bread contains wheat is not really the issue--rye itself is a gluten grain, and therefore not primal.

    Back before I gave up gluten, I used to make the sort of "good rye" bread being discussed. It was like a brick. Not everyone would agree it was bread-like.

    Good rye bread (as I knew it) should be dense, heavy and ~awesome~. Huck it full of various seeds like caraway and you have a winner.

    Not these days, though.

    I wish it was--I like rye bread. And sourdough. I'm fine with just having it occasionally in a restaurant, tho.
