  1. Hi, this is all new to me and so I have to go slow. BIG question – I cook only for myself since I live alone. how do I measure down the recipes just for myself instead of cooking for a large family??? What’s the key??? Otherwise I will be wasting lots of food.


  2. Why don’t you include calories and nutritional info? Would be most helpful and even other “free” calorie counting programs have that information. Very important info for those who may be diabetic or have high cholesterol. Please let me know if you plan to offer this in the future.

  3. Hi, Sangers. You can use any whole-grain bread, but you can also order it online from here or (you can also buy PureLife breads from any of the following locations:
    – Habib Wholefoods 260 Flinders Street Melbourne Vic. 3000 Ph. 03 96395515
    – Passionfoods 219 Ferrars Street South Melbourne Vic. 3205 Ph. 03 96909339
    – Kagu Stall 51 and 52 South Melbourne Market South Melbourne. Vic. 3206
    There are actually a fair number of additional sprouted bread sources available to you – see here

  4. Attention for USA citizens! You can by” SWG” bread in” Pablix” supermarket, in frozen section, for organic food. It’s call “Ezekiel’ 4:9 The original-Flourless Sprouted Grain Bread. If you know the Word of GOD, you can go to the old testament, to the book of the prophet Ezekiel chapter 4:9, verse 9. God bless you all. Mila.

  5. This was really good. Loved for the simple fact I could control the seasoning, unlike the processed boxed junk you can buy in the store! If you chop the bread finer, it would make a great stuffing for mushrooms too!

  6. I am afraid I seem to have signed up to non UK ingredients what substitutes could be used ? also in UK many products such as organic ranges are very expensive and is a huge consideration . The staple food in our cupboards needs to be obtainable and affordable.
