Such an awesome bread, and perfect for those of us who follow a whole food plant-based, no oil diet! (although a few types include oil-just have to read the ingredient list). Try it, you'll LOVE it!
Oh I thought olive oil is okay to eat
Laura, I also do a whole foods plant based diet and unfortunately I'm still consuming 'free oils' because it's hard to buy convenience foods without it. I can't cook from scratch all the time so I have to rely on lightly processed foods so I don't starve when I'm unable to prepare meals for myself. I went to a health institute in California and reversed at that time what they told me was fibromyalgia and prediabetes. Unfortunately I was unable to do much of the walking program before my health started to deteriorate from over 30 years of pharmaceutical use which compromised my gut integrity and blocked the absorption of nutrients that was the ruin of my health. I'm still trying to do as much whole foods as I'm able to prepare. It truly is the way to healing if you know all there is to know about a plant based diet. They educated me failry well but they failed to realise the severity of my gut permeability issues from so many pills. True healing if you have gut issues begin in the gut.
The movie Forks Over Knives saved my life. I follow Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Dr. Michael Greger and Dr. Neal Barnard. I follow the plan strictly because it cured my heart disease and high cholesterol, plus I lost 85 lbs. It also lessened my lupus and fibro symptoms. I can not tell you how amazing I feel following this. And there are plenty of food items out there now, that are convenient and compliant. It can be as easy as opening a jar of tomato sauce, throwing some sliced mushrooms in and boiling some water for your whole wheat pasta!
I'm very familiar with most physicians affiliated with the Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine. The health institute I attended promoted all of them
Just wondering if it's ok to eat??? I have high cholesterol and I'm on 40 mg of simvastatin which is killing my joints in my muscles trying to exercise more and eat hundred percent better as a vegetarian so I can come off the Simvastatin
I heard Co-Q10 helps joints when on statins
My son in law works there; it's just down the road from us but I won't eat it or any bread. Despite the fact their bread is good and mostly organic, it's still bread. I avoid it for a number of reasons. Although you may do well with it, it may be good to keep in mind that grains (all) contain phytates which block mineral absorption with Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Manganese, and Zinc in the small intestine. So, if you are dealing with Osteo, this may not be good. However, (depending on the type of bread), you may want to avoid it and all grains completely. I used to suffer from four forms of RA/Arthritis, as well as 30 other conditions. My joints were always causing pain, along with other areas. Many grains also contain gluten and ATIs (amylase-trypsin inhibitors) which can damage the gut lining leading to Leaky Gut, which you most likely have. Leaky Gut is a condition where the "tight-junctions" of the gut lining become permeable allowing contaminants into the bloodstream creating inflammation and it is this that causes joints to swell and induce pain. Further, the Glyphosate found in many grains (non-certified organic) exacerbate the effects of both gluten and ATIs. These effects can create many issues in the body but some of the more common are joint pain and trouble with bones and connective tissues. So with that in mind, you may be better off avoiding all grains, including Dave's Killer Bread. I became free of all pain, inflammation and all 30 plus conditions in six months following a healing protocol that, among other things, excluded grains.
Leaky Gut and an imbalanced gut microbiome are associated with Osteo as well, according to more recent studies.
Hi douglas , I am wondering if you could recommend supplements for Osteoporosis, company to buy from as well as amounts daily of K1, K2, VitC, VitD, Boron, Calcium, etc. Any supplements you would choose would be helpful as I can tell by your posts, you're very knowledgeable about treating the body as a whole. I have had MS for 25 years and was able to treat myself naturally as I was doing well with MS until I had a hard fall in 2011 and now have 4 back fractures. I am currently taking AlgaCal along with various and sundry supplements not knowing if I am choosing the right company or the correct amounts. I have spend literally hundreds if not thousands on supplements only to learn I am doing it all wrong. I would happy to pay you for your consult. Thanks!
Douglas... Tell your son-in-law to keep up the good work, for those of us who can tolerate Dave's wonderful whole, organic ingredients! Other than Ezekiel products, there are few breads that are made with such care, regarding ingredients.
douglas, even millet? It hardly has any gluten.
Marian Goodman I avoid such seeds as millet and quinoa also. I ingest no gluten. But even quinoa irritates the gut lining so I avoid it as well.
So no bread for me pass
I have... Currently eating the Thin-Sliced 21 Whole Grains and Seeds. I like the taste.
My favorite too!
Ezekiel bread is perfect.
Yes very good bread, makes great toast.
We like it.
When in the US, my husband and I went gluten free. We were both having digestive issues and although neither had gluten isses, we thought it wouldn't hurt. We both saw improvements in our health. Since moving back to England, we have not been as careful when it comes to the bread choices. However, neither of us have had any problems. I am beginning to think it is partly the additives for keeping bread fresh longer - which many UK breads don't have, and the GMOs - which are banned here.
I believe it too.
I try to avoid bread.... I get my fiber from cooked vegetables and Metamucil... I also have some serious digestive problems
douglas, you mentioned imbalanced microbiome in a post. Where do you stand on candida? It is my experience that candida overgrowth is the root cause of the imbalance. It needs to feed on carbs to survive hence robbing the body of vital nutrients. People resorting to the paleo diet are simply starving out candida creating a better environment for the gut. I work on managing the candida.
BTW... I have Bartonella, which is why I don't eat grains
My son used to eat it and loved it. He left a loaf out once and our cat got into it and ate at least 4-6 pieces. Next thing I knew I saw her limping and dragging her belly on the ground. I thought she broke her leg. After a $300 vet visit it turned out she had GAS and a lot of it. She laid on her back for 24 hours looking miserable. Yes, Dave's Killer Bread almost killed her. Don't trust this cat - she only looks innocent.
That’s too funny
The BEST! Only bread my diabetic husband can eat.
if u have digestive problems, then all grains r bad for u.... I had to learn this the hard way....... I love all kinds of bread, but I no longer eat any. Bc I pay the price for the next 2 days..... Think of tequila, that is what grains r like for me
what do they do to you? I had headaches for many years and tried everything I could think of but nothing helped. When I went off grains they disappeared. I try not to think about all the Aleve I took ...
severe abdominal cramps and constipation....I do take about 10 capsules of Metamucil a day and eat a lot of vegetables for fiber
I have hyperparathyroidism and am having surgery April 20 to remove the enlarged parathyroid glands. I had a biopsy last week. Hyperparathyroidism causes calcium levels to be too high which weakens bones and affects the heart and kidney. Has anyone else had this problem?
