Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Flax Bread

I don’t eat a lot of bread, but when I do it is either from a bakery, in a Parisienne cafe, or Food for Life‘s Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Bread in my apartment.  When the Food for Life team reached out to me and asked me if I would like to review their new sprouted bread, I jumped a the chance!  I typically eat their original Sprouted Grain Bread (orange bag if you are familiar with the brand) and was excited to try their new Sprouted Flax Bread.
