One way I get fiber is in my bread – hemp bread. After I mentioned that in ETR, Charles Lowen of Fort Worth e-mailed me: “I have heard about just about every kind of organic bread there is. However, no one in the health food stores here in Texas seems to know what hemp bread is. Could you please let me know more about it and where to buy it?”
I have been eating hemp bread because it was the only bread I could find with more than 2 grams of fiber per slice. It is a compact bread with a very grainy texture, so it takes a little while to learn to like it.
The brand I eat is French Meadow Bakery’s Healthy Hemp Sprouted Bread. Each slice has 95 calories, 5 grams of dietary fiber, and 7 grams of protein.
You won’t find hemp bread in your local grocery store. But it is available at Whole Foods and many other specialty markets, as well as online at frenchmeadow.com.
Recently, K discovered a high-fiber bread at the grocery store that you might like better. It’s called Nature’s Own Double Fiber Wheat Bread, and it has 50 calories per slice, 5 grams of dietary fiber, and 3 grams of protein. Try it and let me know what you think.[Ed.
