Ezekiel Bread

Hello beautiful people, it’s about 3:51 am. My best time to write, I pray you are all doing well this morning, or whatever time it is, where you are. I am excited because I have more wonderful things to share with you in my review below. Remember your body is your temple according to the scriptures, so we are to nourish and attend to it, as if it were a new born baby. Remember always Body & Soul.

Benefits of sprouting is that it reduces the amount of gluten, a protein to which many people are intolerant and which is found in wheat, spelt, rye and barley (3). Due to the reduction in antinutrients, Ezekiel bread may provide a higher number of nutrients than bread made from grains that have not sprouted.

I purchased some Ezekiel bread the other day from SPROUTS,. As you know I am trying to change the way I eat; making it a way of life for me and my grand babies. So I was at Sioux’s house and she made some French toast, topped with berries and syrup. Okay ya’ll bare with me, so I’m sitting there thinking this woman is getting ready to cook for me. Oh Lord! You know I’m picky, and didn’t know what to expect, but upon Sioux sitting the plate in front of me. I thought okay this looks good, and after taking a bite, I was impressed, not only was a Jewish woman cooking for me, but it TASTED GOOD!

She gave me two slices and immediately I thought, I’m going to still be hungry afterwards, but that was not the case, because the bread is very filling. Anymore than two would be over doing it, and moderation is an essential part of dieting.

The Ingredients in Ezekiel Bread:

This bread is made with the following ingredients: organic sprouted wheat, filtered water, organic malted barley, organic sprouted rye, organic sprouted barley, organic sprouted oats, organic sprouted millet, organic sprouted corn, organic sprouted brown rice, fresh yeast, organic wheat gluten and sea salt.

Okay so let me tell you about my friend Sioux, she is this little 60 years old lady. She is the size of a bean pole, no not really, she is 5’5, 100 lbs soaking wet, eats nothing but organic food, no red meats, but will occasionally eat fish. She lives on macadamia nuts, beets, cauliflower, salads, French toast made of sprouted bread with hemp, and water. She is full of energy and loves to run up the stairs when at the mall, she’s really a show off; but I love it!😊😆 She challenges me, and I couldn’t ask for a better friend. A person like Sioux isn’t for the faint at heart, because of her blatant honesty. But let’s face it, most people cannot deal with truth. YOU ROCK SIOUX ! Thanks for the help!

Sioux stores her sprouted bread in the freezer or refrigerator to keep it fresh. Because of the sprouted ingredients within, the bread is best when kept at a certain temp. Although the bread she used has Hemp in it, it’s basically on the same lines as the Ezekiel Bread. It’s made with organic ingredients, sprouted millet, corn, barley, etc,. It’s been said that the Ezekiel Bread is one of the healthiest breads you can eat, along with the fact that is has no added sugar, makes it exceptional.

To me the Hemp seed is not as tasty by it self, but Sioux mixed up a little organic yogurt, hemp seeds and berries in a bowl for me to try. Well, let’s just say, it’s not my favorite thing to eat. Lol, I’m just saying! Just maybe the Hemp would taste better on a savory item instead. But it’s not off my list, especially since it has so many wonderful benefits.

So below I have a simple research I did, to be more informative when sharing with you, and by all means try it, if you haven’t already. I am a firm believer, one should at least try something once. So run out and get your Hemp seeds.

Now I thought this was incredible when I learned that Industrial hemp plants can become all kinds of useful products including ropes, clothing, insulation, and even building materials. The seeds of the hemp plant are growing in popularity thanks to their nutritional properties. The health benefits of hemp seeds come from their high content of essential fatty acids, protein, and fiber. Facts about Hemp Seeds you should know.

Hemp Seed An Excellent Source of Magnesium

Magnesium supports muscle function and, along with sodium and potassium, it can help balance electrolyte levels in the body. It also plays an important role in carbohydrate metabolism, assisting your stomach in breaking down carbs into the glucose your body needs for fuel. Many people tend to be deficient in this vital mineral, and just a one-ounce serving of hemp seeds contains 192 mg of magnesium, about half of your recommended daily value.

Rich in GLA

Hemp seeds can also contain several types of fatty acids, but the most important one is GLA (gamma-linolenic acid), which helps regulate hormones levels in the body by supporting prostaglandin production. The proper amount of GLA in your diet can reduce symptoms associated with diabetic neuropathy, rheumatoid arthritis, allergies, ADHD, some forms of cancer, high blood pressure, acne, and eczema. Though the omega-6 fatty acids in GLA can be harmful in large amounts, remember moderate consumption is actually very beneficial to our bodies.

Improve Cardiovascular Health

Keeping your cholesterol levels in balance and reducing blood pressure can go a long way toward lowering your risk of heart disease. The balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in hemp seeds can help your body naturally reduce the levels of bad LDL cholesterol and maintain levels of good HDL cholesterol. This prevents the accumulation of fat in the arteries, which can cause blockages. Fatty acids also help relax the arteries, keeping the walls smooth and supple. This particular benefit is near and dear to me, because of trying to maintain a healthy heart as well as a healthy lifestyle.

I encourage you to explore life on a daily basis, as a matter of fact, LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE TODAY!!!

Encourage Yourself Through Body & Soul, In The Lord!

  1. This is so informative! I haven’t heard of Ezekial bread & I’m really hungry for what’s in that photo now, thanks : ), my smoothie is supposed to hold me until dinner! Sioux seems amazing, I think we need more blatant honesty around here. People are getting soft and whiney.

      1. You are so welcome. I really appreciate your support, by the way. I try to tell myself after 2 glasses of a smoothie that I don’t need to eat, I have the nutrients I need… but, I see you know how that goes. You have a beautiful day as well!

      2. Maybe instead of adding all the fruits or veggies to our smoothies, we should set aside a few pieces of bananas, celery sticks etc,. And eat those items to have a more filling affect. Because it can be so hard, we will go crazy if we allow ourselves to get too hungry. I can tell you that you are certainly not alone, I’m sure there are millions of others who feel the same way. We have to adjust our eating schedule to best fit our personal needs. Be blessed my friend!

      3. You know, you are so right. Because you mention this, I remember when I managed a restaurant, I’d snack on maybe 10 grapes throughout the entire busy day, it’s amazing how that took the edge off the hunger! Okay, but with celery, I’d o.d. dunking it in peanut butter, to mask the taste, like when I was little (giggle) Yes, I feel a wee bit wobbly in the head when my stomach won’t submit to my will. Hugs from afar

      4. Aww, well, he’s okay. He is getting antsy for warmer weather. He is sensing it’s approaching. He mostly still eats his special smoothies from a syringe (a blogger buddy suggested & vets agree, it’s a “developed behavior” (part docile genetics/ & I think part ptsd from my leaving the country & him for 2 weeks). He’s healthy, stubborn & sweet!
