has anyone tried the sprouted grain breads? They are spendy and I want to be sure they are worth it.

    "Worth it" is a hard call. They taste.....healthy. Kind of dense and grainy, lots of that deep whole grain flavor.
    The Ezekial bread is my favorite from the couple i have tried. Be sure to toast it! Not toasted is not good..

    I'm not convinced they are nutritiously superior to a good loaf of multi grain artisinal bread from a good bakery.... The sprouting is suppossed to make the nutrients easier to digest among other claims, but i eat plenty of other sprouted legumes and greens and never had an issue digesting breads. But i don't eat much bread anyhow (like, two pcs a week), if you eat a loaf or more a week that would be a pricey habit.

      Trader Joe's has one that i liked a lot, though I haven't bought it in a while. Much less pricey then the Ezekial breads. I thought it tasted fine as is, but it's really good toasted with some brie spread on it...sorry I guess the brie bit isn't all that healthy :-)

        I think the brie part is the healthiest! :-) And delicious, too, I'm with you.
