Protein Bread

Share

The lovely ladies over at Alvarado Street Bakery sent me some loaf samples of their California style Complete Protein bread and Diabetic bread and included a note that said eat right away.

Richard, Zack and I all tried them. The texture of the sprouted wheat is tasty and substantial. It makes amazing toast and sandwiches. We put some home made raspberry freezer jam on ours and fresh tomatoes and avocados on the sandwich. Both were excellent. 

I make my own bread and I still really liked this and will buy it. They have lots of other sprouted grain products that I will give a try, Particularly the rye one, that sounds interesting, doesn’t it? The products seem to be available all around the U.S. They have pretty impressive distribution.

Alvarado Street Bakery’s mission is to give superior service in providing the finest quality baked goods to its valued customers nationwide by utilizing a worker owned and managed cooperative business structure and to strive to use whole grain and organic ingredients, wherever possible, to support sustainable agricultural practices and healthy living.

Product review: zipfruit

Share

Once You open the stylish packaging of “zipfruit” you get a snack size serving of tasty crispy freeze dried goodness.

by Oregon Freeze Dry, the world’s largest custom freeze dryer, ZipKitchen is providing a fresh take on the snack world. Thanks to their experience and technology, this new line of freeze-dried ZipFruit preserves the natural essence of the original fruit, ensuring the taste and quality remains intact.

I liked them, but hope for more exotic flavors in the future like raspberries, peaches, nectarines etc. I got a free sample so I do not know how much they cost, it is a smallish amount. Just right for a quick snack or to feed a child. They were easy to open.

I heard they are available at 7-Eleven’s nationwide so should be easy for y’all to try them for yourselves.

“Due to the freeze-dried technology that Oregon Freeze Dry bestows, and the fact that all of their products are sourced, freeze-dried, packaged, and shipped from one location, helps to guarantee that the nutrition and quality of their products remain at its peak. In fact, unlike traditional dried-fruit which concentrates all of the sugars of the fruit, and is often infused with preservatives, freeze-dried products are almost nutritionally identical to the original, minus the extra water weight.
With only 35-45 calories per serving, no additives, colors, or flavorings, and a 15-month shelf-life to boot, this is definitely a snack that I would feel good about eating myself, as well as for feeding the little ones in my life.”  from their site. The photo links to their site for more info.
