2 Ingredients = 1 Warm "Comfort Food" Snack

Healthy Cinnamon Raisin Toast anyone?
So simple.
 Brings me back to my childhood!

Toasted Cinnamon Raisin Ezekiel Bread + Earth Balance Natural Buttery Spread
Cinnamon Raisin Toast like my mommy loves!

ONLY this is the nutritionized (word?!) version!

Various sprouted grains are somehow combined, along with some salt, yeast, and gluten (not a gluten-free food!) to make this delicious "Ezekiel bread" of the brand name Food for Life.

You can see there is nothing artificial in there, no added sweeteners, no chemicals, no preservatives... practically a "whole food" or "real food"! Keep in mind, calories, fiber, and protein are similar to that of your average 100% whole wheat bread, most of which are also pretty healthy choices, assuming you select 100% WHOLE grain bread!

BUT this is CINNAMON RAISIN BREAD! There used to be a great whole grain cinnamon swirl something bread out there, by ...I can't remember the brand, it was SO yummy! But I guess there weren't enough other people who shared my opinion, so it soon vanished from grocery shelves. THIS is a great replacement!!

I buy this bread at Trader Joe's or Whole Foods. I store it frozen and always toast it before I eat it. It also tastes great with natural peanut butter or almond butter. You could always try this bread with the oldie but goodie PB and Banana Sandwiches!

EARTH BALANCE Natural Buttery Spread is a HEALTHY FAT and a perfect alternative to butter (because it doesn't have any fat with a  face -- animal fat) and margarine (because there aren't any partially or fully hydrogenated oils)!  AND it TASTES yummy!  Check out the ingredients and here is a link to the Earth Balance website.

Hope you enjoy!

WHAT DO YOU THINK? Do you go to Trader Joe's or Whole Foods, or some other natural foods store? Do you have favorite products you get just from there? Ezekiel bread is one of those products for me!
