Ezekiel Bread Is a Protein

Bread? A protein? Yes! (We’ll wait while you jump for joy.) Ezekiel bread, aka sprouted grain bread, is made by soaking grains in water until green sprouts grow. This germination process ups the grains’ nutrient value and makes vitamins and minerals you don’t find in whole wheat bread readily available. Unlike your typical loaf, Ezekiel bread has no flour—it’s all grains and legumes. Voila: a complete protein, on par with eggs and milk.
