Ezekial Bread - yay or nay?

I'm not planning on eating daily sandwiches with the stuff, but just wondering what the genereal consensus is with regards to using Ezekial bread as an occassional food. I know that in general, sprouted grains are better for you - but my main concern is the insulin spike after consuming grains.....will it be lower than the sugar spike I'd get from regular bread?

Sprouting does get rid of some, but not all, of the phytates, but the gluten is still there, which can't be removed by sprouting, so no, not paleo, still harmful.

Best to avoid it.

Well, if you're concerned about the insulin spike, rest assured that Ezekiel bread is one of, if not the, lowest on the glycemic index compared to all other grains. It's actually "diabetic approved" and somewhere on the site it says the GI (I think it's like 27, or somewhere around there, which is very low).

Most fitness models recommend it.

So, it's not paleo, but that does not mean it can't fit into an overall healthy lifestyle. See how you do with it.
