Would bought sourdough bread but as fine as homemade or must it be homemade? If I make it myself what flour can I use besides rye as I don't like rye? Anyone have a tried and true recipe using other flour? Thanks
The store bought sourdough bread, even if you knew it was made from complete whole grains, may very likely have other things added to it that don't really fit on plan, and usually they are only partially cultured. Serene's recipe is completely cultured, which makes it more superior nutritionally and also lower glycemic. If you don't like rye, you could try using all spelt, or a mixture of wheat and spelt, or whatever you prefer really. Although, Seren's bread doesn't taste like a traditional rye bread, which has other seasonings added to it to give it that bold flavor. Plain rye flour is actually quite neutral.

So the wheat I buy from Wall Mart would be ok? How about part unbleached and part whole wheat from the store? I just bought a few bags of unbleached before Christmas and would like to have a way to use it up but if there is no way maybe I will just give it to a friend. Can I use the same measurements in Serene's recipe just use different flours? Thanks
carmela: Can you have regular sourdough bread on TRM plan

carmela: Sorry THM plan

steffanie3: For breads you want to stick with the E guidelines of whole grain sourdoughed or sprouted or whole grain rye.

asensenig: Does this include Ezekiel Bread? I have a THM recipe that calls for 7 cups wheat kernels. It does not mention that it needs to be sprouted or rye.

steffanie3: Ezekiel is sprouted. You could post your recipe up in a post so we could see it

asensenig: Following is the recipe I used for Ezekiel Bread. 7 cups Wheat Kernels; 1 cup Ezekiel Mix; 1000 mg Vitamin C Tablet; 5 cups warm water; 1/2 cup Honey; 1/2 cup butter, slightly softened); 2 T salt; 3 T Saf Yeast; 1/2 cup Vital Wheat Gluten. Ezekiel mix next

asensenig: Ezekiel Mix: 12 cups Barley; 12 cups Rye or Spelt; 4 cups dry lentils; 4 cups millet; 4 cups dry pinto beans; 3 cups dry soy beans. Another question. Can rye berries be used without sprouting?

steffanie3: I was thinking you meant the store bought Ezekiel which is sprouted. This recipe would not be on plan with the honey.
Apr 14, 2014 12:54:31 GMT -5
asensenig: ok. if you substituted another sweetner for the honey, would it be ok?

aecmama: hello! just started the plan and wondering about the Chobani 100 yogurt that is sweetened with stevia and also monkfruit extract (both of which I have already in the house!) Anyone know anything? I've spent awhile searching. Are either of these on plan?
Apr 16, 2014 11:56:59 GMT -5
steffanie3: Can you list the ingredients aecmama?
Apr 16, 2014 13:55:11 GMT -5
steffanie3: Cane juice is sugar and is not on plan, sorry.
Apr 16, 2014 16:01:42 GMT -5
steffanie3: Are the grains and beans sprouted asensening?
Apr 16, 2014 16:04:42 GMT -5
aecmama: any thoughts about monkfruit extract as a sweetener?
Apr 16, 2014 16:05:09 GMT -5
steffanie3: "At this time, there is not an official recommendation to use monk fruit, but the early research on monk fruit extract is encouraging." The THM ladies are still researching it. If it were me I would use up what you have then get a stevia extract
