The only "wonder bread" I have on anything is on a pair of biking socks!

Yes, it's better than rye. :-)

The book "Dangerous Grains" is a real eye-opener.

Of course, I ate banana bread today... I can't figure how to get through the staff meetings without partaking in the junk food smorgasbord. Maybe I will bring my own almond cookies next time... sprinkled with tryptohan.... :rofl:

I agree with the others, drop bread! Among all the other things mentioned here, it can also be responsible for huge blood sugar crashes. I always wanted to nap big time in the afternoon, until I cut processed carbs from my diet down to a bare minimum.

Without some amount of bread and pasta...I'm not sure life is worth living... :biggrin:

That said, I can attempt to control it, hence my question. Sandwiches are a better choice than most of my lunch options (until I go through the trouble of packing a lunch)...but I am a little surprised that even the "heathly" breads have HFCS. Sheesh.

I just hope Ezekiel bread tastes good...if not, I may resort to baking. I guess I can ask for a bread machine for xmas.

Thanks again...

Might want to reconsider...

That said, seeing as to how my wife and I occasionally use bread as a condiment, there is a loaf of Ezekiel bread in my fridge that has lasted us for the past month or two. For reasons I don't entirely understand, sprouted/flourless bread does not seem to spoil nearly as fast as regular bread. Which is just as well, since it needs to last a long time for us to consume an entire loaf.

When we can find them, we buy the Ezekiel english muffins for egg breakfasts (whut fer to put the spinach and poached eggs on top of) and do not purchase loaves at all. But those are hard to come by, especially if you mostly shop at Trader Joe's.

I used to put down entire loaves of bread in two days. I also used to be 10-15 pounds heavier. Feels like a lifetime ago.

In all seriousness, I eat so much healthier than the average person...I'm going to have bread when I feel like it. I just refuse to eat any kind of white bread.

I bought some almond flour, so I'll try making my new improved banana nut bread (super nutty now!) tomorrow.

Putting off tomorrow's WOD because I'm finishing the hardwood flooring in the master bedroom!

Yeah, you need to use brown paper or baking parchment over the top... Also make sure to bake it at about ten degrees lower than recommended and for a longer time. You can also use foil on the top and carve an X into the center. Oh, and bake in Pyrex if at all possible.

Well, all I have is pyrex, so got that covered. So, if the recipe says 350 for 1:30...I should go 340 for 2 or more hours? Can I get away without putting flour?

I kept the mush for two days, then my wife caught me eating it out of the pyrex with a spoon and threw it away :cheeky-smiley-022: She said something about it being gross and left out all night...hmmm...tasted fine!
