Well....it seems like I'm always starting threads with peoples interests in food. Let's start talking about Ezekiel bread. Any thoughts on it? When you use it? Worth the price? Great source of clean carbs? Let's get it rolling. Just want to know peoples experience with it.

I eat it most of the time instead of normal bread but it has two major disadvantages:

1. Price
2. Has to stay frozen.

Besides the above, it beats the shit outta normal bread.

yeah I was reading that it contains all 9 essential amino's in it. I don't know if this makes that much of a difference but it seems like an extremely nutrient dense food.

I've thought about trying it, but above all, convenience governs my dietary approach, and with the lbs and lbs of bison and chicken in my fridge, protein-bread has to take a back seat.

A company called Alvarado Street Bakery sells a shelf stable variety that is rather tasty, cheaper and just as clean as the frozen type.

They make a higher protein version, a sourdough, a rye version, cinnamon raisen and bagels. My local Stop and Shop used to carry the brand, but no longer :(

For anyone near a Trader Joes, it has an Ezekiel Bread that does not have to be kept frozen. Plus everything is cheaper at Trader Joes! In my opinion tastes much better than regular bread. I think it is also much better in terms of satifying your appetite.

I used to eat a different high protein bread before seeing Ezekiel promoted by a few guys on this site. I would never switch back.

Lol, well, There may be some frozen Veggies buried in the far back for an emergency, but for the most part (and especially since I've been cutting), I keep my freezer pretty insanely stocked with Tilapia fillets, Chicken Breasts, and Bison Patties (and my Hawaiian Kona Coffee beans, I'm kind of an addict!).

Even when I'm not cutting though, I've never really been a big 'sandwich' guy. Sure I love a good hamburger, but I would always order two, and combine them on one bun. I guess I figure I'll not only be better off macro-wise, but actually feel more full from eating a great quantity of 'real food', rather than 'dressing up' a smaller amount on bread.

I do love bagels though, I'll fess up to that one.

I couldn't agree more, never a big sandwich guy. I am a sucker for big ass burritos, or schwarma in a lafa? You ever have that? It's quite amazing. Bison is great though. I get it when I can. What about liver? Anyone ever get down with that?

The Ezekiel whole grain (or whatever they call the dark bread) makes an awesome bun to use with gamey-tasting bison burgers (the ones from really good farmers, not the stuff from TJ and WFM).

It would be awesome if Ezekiel could come up with a pita formula.

Its tasty toasted with about 4 tablespoons of brazil nut butter, or almond. Its 2 fer 5 at my local Trader Douche's. It beats the pants of normal bread.

And I can say with quite certainty having been in just about every corner of the US, you can't get any better bagels than the ones made in the corridor between NYC and Philly......

I do miss the bagels.... (and the pizza)....

I've never seen Ezekiel bread on a shelf in a store or bakery up here. :(

I think my Bucksport friend who introduced me to it got it either from a food co-op or Rooster Brothers, whenever you might be going through Ellsworth. You must know about that place anyway being the chef you are. :-)

dude, for breakfast, nothing is better than 4 slices of their cinnamon raisin bread. Toast em up and then add just a little bit of butter and it is absolutely amazing!! Really recommend it.

I get it at my wegmans for $4.00 a loaf.

awesome stuff! Get it!!!
