Ezekiel Low Sodium Bread
A very unique low sodium, all natural, organic bread.
Ezekiel 4:9 Bread
All Natural Low Sodium Bread
When I was first diagnosed with High Blood Pressure a few years back I had to do a lot of research because as much as I hate to admit it, I was dumb founded with the whole concept of what High Blood Pressure was.One of many things I had to research was foods that did not contain a high salt content and in that research is when I first heard about Ezekiel Bread. But there are not a lot of places in my area that sells this bread and to travel a little ways to only purchase a loaf of $5 bread just did not make a lot of sense to me. However, last weekend I was in a store that sold Ezekiel Breads and I purchased a load of the Low Sodium bread. To my surprise, I can honestly say now I would now travel to just to get a loaf of this bread. The first slice I ate was really blah!! But the next morning when I made toast with it, something happened to the flavor (which I will explain in a little bit).
What is so special about Ezekiel Bread?
Ezekiel Bread is made with all natural ingredients and made with no preservatives and it is made with certified organic grains. When I got home from the store and was reading the package it has a quote written on it from a passage in the Bible: Ezekiel 4:9 "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." In my Bible it says: “Also take for yourself wheat, barley, beans, lentils, millet, and spelt put them into one vessel, and make bread of them for yourself. During the number of days that you lie on your side, three hundred and ninety days, you shall eat it." Okay, sorry I often do this; there is something in me that needs to double check things when scripture is involved.
Anyway, back to Ezekiel bread, the ingredients in this Low Sodium Bread is: Organic sprouted wheat, filtered water, malted barley, organic sprouted millet, organic sprouted barley, organic sprouted lentils, organic sprouted soybeans, organic sprouted spelt and fresh yeast. Food for Life products are made with filtered water and are kosher-certified. They never use conditioners, additives, artificial flavors, colors or preservatives in their products.
Food for Life is the company that makes this bread. They have been serving high quality sprouted grain bread and natural baked good for over 40 years. Food for Life is a family owned and operated specialty bakery. They originated in Glendale, California in a small neighborhood and the company has been in business for three generations making over 60 different kinds of specialty bread all natural.
Making Homemade Natural Bread
It is true what they say
They say if you heat Ezekiel Bread up it brings out the nutty taste of the grains. It is true. I love using Ezekiel bread when I make a grill cheese or grill peanut-butter and jelly sandwich. Or having toast with some strawberry jam on it. Yummy!!
The best thing I really like about this bread is the fact it made with natural organic ingredients and I really like the texture of it. It is more dense than soft white loaf bread.
So have I written anything that may inspire you to at least try Ezekeil bread? If you do, please come back and share your thoughts.
