Dave's KILLER Bread
The Logo above explains just why I love Dave's Killer Bread! I had recently been writing about my new Eating Plan my family has been on that is simply to cut preservatives and chemicals as much as possible. I had named their bread as one that is on my list of Breads that meet my new criteria in that post!
I am never without it and it didn't take long for the entire family to become addicted. I have tried some very bland Natural breads and I am blown away at how such natural ingredients can come together so perfectly. I had done my research and learned a bit on how to read labels. As I had written in my Eating Plan post found here, I had learned that when it comes to bread there are ingredients that you may THINK are good for you, but they are actually one's you want to avoid in terms of unnatural or changed. Here is a copy of that portion of my post:
Look for 'Sprouted Wheat' on the ingredients.
Avoid ingredients that read: Hydrogenized Oil, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Bleached/Unrefined Flour, Wheat
Gluten, Artificial flavor, Sweeteners like Sucrose/Aspartame
Good brands: Ezekiel Breads, Dave's Killer Bread or Brown Rice Bread (look for brown Rice Flour as 1st ingredient)
I ran to the Grocery Store during that 1st NEW shopping trip. A trip to buy all the staples I needed to switch our eating plan..the right oils, sauces, staples,etc... and I scoured the bread aisle. I read bag after bag that listed ingredients I had learned to avoid until I picked up a bag of Dave's Killer Bread. Below is what I read
WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR
ORGANIC CRACKED WHOLE WHEAT
I found this at WINCO and at about $4 a bag. More than your generic bag of chemical bread, but less than the fancy names that still list ingredients meant to avoid. My local QFC and Winco is now my 2 places to stop for our bread and my husband knows this also. The bag above is nearly empty and I bought it Tuesday. It is their LIGHT Grain Bread..only 65 Calories! It is moist, even the real grainy breads are very moist. The only thing I can say is if you are making toast, remember that you are toasting REAL ingredients so turn your toaster down a bit and it takes less time then standard bread or it ends up a bit tough. I never thought I should pay $4 for a loaf of bread and now I am happy and feel good to pay it. The price is very fair to the benefit and compared to other brands.
This is a review of my own pick. I was not affiliated in any way with Dave's Crazy Bread when I wrote this post.
