Sprouted Grain Bread

By Marensmorsels @marentweets

Hey guys! How was your weekend? Mine was good, and it included a trip over to San Juan Bautista for some lunch at a really beautiful restaurant. I have a camera full of pictures but I haven’t had a chance to edit them yet… Hopefully I’ll get a post up today. I kinda took the weekend off so I’m really glad to be back.



So, in my attempts to lead a some-what healthy life I try to limit my sugar and complex carbohydrate consumption. This isn’t really intense or anything, just something I try to do because it helps me make better choices when snacking and when dealing with the ever challenging bread basket. Ooo those bread baskets.

I also really like how I feel when I’m “off the white”.

This mornings breakfast is a slice of California Sprouted Grain Bread with a little butter and two fried eggs that became a mess and turned into quazi scrambled eggs.


Sprouted grain bread processes in the body like protein, instead of breaking down quickly into sugar like most bread products do. This way it has less effect on blood sugar levels and after meal cravings.

It takes a little getting used to. I didn’t like how it tasted at first, but after gutting it threw a few slices I really like it. And I like all the added benefits of sprouted grain.


A really common brand is Ezekiel Bread. They also make tortillas, english muffins, bagels, etc. It makes watching carbs so much easier!


Don’t forget the tea, per usual.


I’ve done a lot of research this weekend because I need to get this camera situation under control, STAT!

I never realized how easy my old camera was. I had a Canon Powershot A310, basically a little point and shoot and it was lovely. Just click and go for the most part. Plus, my laptop has an SD slot right in the side so transferring pictures was a breeze. I also didn’t have to edit them in Photoshop if I didn’t have time.

For the last week to 10 days I’ve been using my iPhone (acceptable) and my Dad’s castoff professional grade Canon EOS D5 with a macro lens. I took today’s pictures with it and they are gorgeous! I definitely understand now how cameras can take pictures and make them look completely different. These pictures are so much warmer and crisper.

But I have to edit them in Photoshop no matter what because I have to shoot everything in manual. Plus there is no image stabilization. Today I took 43 pictures of my breakfast and the ones I posted were the only ones that weren’t blurry.
