- It is high in protein, Omega-3, vitamin, and low carb nutrition from sprouted rye, chia seeds, and eggs. Yay!
- Easy to make! Just blend, pour in pan, and bake. There's no kneading or waiting for yeast to rise.
- It's easier to digest because the grain is soaked. So it's free of saponins and indigestible coatings found in all seeds, grains, flours and commercial breads.
- Flourless bread cleans your digestive tract with gentle fiber, promoting healthy elimination, while preventing formation of mucoid plaque and belly flab associated with all flours. DOUBLE YAY!
- The biggest advantage is, the flavor of soaked or sprouted grains is out of this world! Commercial breads made with conventional flours just can't compare in taste.
